The Clone Trooper Commander is a minifigure released in 2013 for the Star Wars theme.

Description

The clone commander minifigure features white legs with a black leg joint, and a white torso with black hands and yellow arms, the yellow being used in on the figure to denote the trooper's rank of commander. The torso's front printing includes black for outlining the various plates and parts of the armour, including a utility belt at the base of the piece. Also, on the left chest plate, four yellow dots in a horizontal line are present. This minifigure has a flesh-coloured headpiece that features printing for several facial features- black eyes with white irises, downturned black eyebrows, a mouth outlined with black and filled with white, depicting gritted teeth, and darker flesh printing for outlining and wrinkles typical to non-Clone Wars clones from 2013 onwards.

The trooper's helmet piece is white, with a predominant crest at the top, typical for Phase I clone trooper armour. Black and grey printing is used to represent the visor and other aspects of the helmet. A vertical yellow stripe runs down the centre of this piece, from the base of the crest to the bottom of the helmet. Yellow is also present below the bottom of the whole visor section. Along with the helmet, the trooper comes with one accessory- a rifle with a Technic pin placed over the barrel.

Background

Commanders were high-ranking clone troopers bred with extra capacity for tactical thinking and independence. They ranged from Battalion Commanders, who led 576 troopers, up to Marshall Commanders, the highest rank a clone trooper could achieve, who were placed in control of 36,864 troopers. Clone trooper commanders were often seen working with Jedi Generals during the Clone Wars.

Notes

  • Although some people may believe this, but this trooper is not part of the 212th Attack Battalion because in the First Battle of Geonosis, the Clones were coloured by rank, not squad thus leading to confusion between the 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper and the Clone Trooper Commander.
