This Turbo Tank Support Squad Clone Trooper was released in the Clone Wars Deluxe line in July/August of 2009. The figure came with a Turbo Tank cannon which shoots out a projectile when the button at the top of the cannon is pushed. The cannon itself has a two-toned grayish color without any battle damage.
The Turbo Tank Clone came with two weapons, a black Clone Trooper blaster, and a longer, silverish looking blaster rifle. Unfortunately, neither of the weapons stay in the Clone's hands very tightly. The hands however are able to grab the handles of the cannon quite well. The mold used for this figure is the super articulated, 14 joint, Clone Trooper mold which has ball-jointed wrists and a ball-jointed waist. This should give you more than enough freedom to place the Clone in whatever position you wish.
The base color used for this Clone is a dull, darker white than seen on most of the other Clone Troopers. The Squad symbols on both arms are unique and nicely applied. The overall appearance is kept clean with no battle markings of any kind which goes along well with the Turbo Tank cannon. All in all, this Turbo Tank Clone figure is well done, and it'll go very well along with the actual Turbo Tank vehicle!
Clone troopers man the Republic's enormous turbo tanks, blasting battle droids with grenade launchers and laser cannons. Bred and trained for combat, clone troopers use the armored assault vehicles to plow directly through obstacles and straight into the maelstrom of battle.
