This 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper was released in July/August 2009 in the Clone Wars Deluxe assortment. The figure has 14 joints, with most of them being ball-jointed. The base color used on this figure is not a shiny white, it's more of a grayish, dull white color, which makes the Clone's appearance look a bit different when placed next to the regular carded 212th Clone.
In the back of the figure is a hole where the jetpack can be plugged in. The jetpack sits tightly, but due to the weight on his back, the Clone starts having balancing problems and it's better if you place him on a stand. The jetpack has two projectiles that can be shot out, and it has a yellow button on the back, and when pressed, both wings open up. This looks pretty cool overall. As for the two weapons, the Clone blaster fits quite well into both hands, but the Battle Droid blaster sits a bit loose. All in all, it's a cool Clone Trooper figure, and if you like Obi-Wan Kenobi's yellow marked Troops, you might want to consider adding it to your collection.
Some clone trooper units are equipped with jet backpacks and a variety of weapons. Jet backpacks are used for aerial assaults and are equipped with twin missile launchers. These packs are often assigned to troopers who are deployed to difficult or rugged environments, such as the troopers of Commander Cody's 212th Attack Battalion.
