This Clone Trooper was featured in the Clone Wars first season's episode "Rising Malevolence". These Clones assisted Plo Koon against Separatist Battle Droids in outer space, on the outside of their escape pod. The figure is super articulated, including two ball-jointed wrists. Hasbro included a regular blaster, a blaster rifle, a removable firing backpack with a projectile, and a removable breathing device. The great thing is that all of these extras are removable if you don't want to put them on the Clone. The figure can stand securely by itself if the firing backpack is removed, otherwise it'll easily tip over and fall backwards due to balancing problems. It's surprising that the helmet is not removable because the Clone Troopers did have quite a bit of screen time without their helmets on. Overall it's a great figure of a Clone that has not been produced before.
Clone troopers are outfitted with additional gear when a battle calls for them to leave their ships and venture into the vacuum of space for an extended period of time. Wearing specialized breathing equipment, they can move through space to board enemy ships for attack or seizure.
