Figure Review: Sideshow 1/6 Scale Clone Commander


This 1/6 scale Clone Commander features the so-called Phase 1 armor as seen in Episode II, Attack of the Clones.

This figure was released in July 2011 as an SDCC Exclusive.


Sculpt

No additional head sculpt is included with this figure. The Phase I armor is all that comes with this figure.

However, the helmet is relatively well made with nice paintwork. Personally, I am quite pleased with the way Sideshow made the helmet, including the visor.


Accessories

The figure comes with a generous assortment of extra hands. These extras provided lots of display options especially if the figure is displayed as part of a diorama. Popping the different hands in and out of their respective sockets is a breeze. To me, this is a plus point for any figure. If I am going to have lots of problems replacing the hands on their intended sockets, then there is no point in me having all these extra hands! Thankfully, this figure has no such problems.

Also included as part of the package is the standard long blaster and a short blaster carried by all Clone Troopers on the battlefield! I particularly like the long blaster as the figure looks kind of cool holding this weapon.


Overall Figure

Compared to the armored bodies used on their earlier Stormtrooper and Clone Trooper figures, Sideshow has stepped up several notches in their quality control for these “new” Clone Troopers. The overall figure comes with tight enough joints that allow the figures to hold their poses well even without the figure stand.


Priced at USD$94.99 (before shipping), this is a well-made figure that is well worth its price point.

Overall Rating

An overall rating of 4 out of 5 (4/5, 80%) is a fair assessment.

For those of you still on the fence on whether to buy this figure or not, go get it now before it sells out!
