The Clone Trooper Lieutenant is a Star Wars themed minifigure released in 2013.

Description

The Clone Trooper Lieutenant minifigure features unprinted white legs with a black leg joint, and a white torso with black hands and light blue arms, the blue being used in on the figure to denote the trooper's rank of Lieutenant in the GAR. 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 blue 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 since 2013.

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 blue stripe also runs down the centre of this piece, from the base of the crest to the bottom of the helmet. Blue is also present below the bottom of the whole visor section. Along with the helmet, the trooper comes with one accessory- a black blaster rifle.

Background

Clone trooper Lieutenants were clone troopers who were placed in command of platoons of 36 troops. The rank of lieutenant was one the two ranks indicated by blue armour flashes painted on a clone trooper's armour during the start of the Clone Wars. Lieutenants were ranked directly between 2nd lieutenant and captain, the former of which also had blue armour flashes.

Notes

  • This minifigure was first released in the polybag 5001709 Clone Trooper Lieutenant. It was first given away to volunteers at the June Star Wars Weekend in California, but was later available as a promotion in September and October 2013 at LEGO Stores and the official online shop. This trooper will then be released in 2015.
  • Although some people may believe this, but this trooper is not part of the 501st Legion because in the First Battle of Geonosis, the Clones were coloured by rank, not squad thus leading to confusion between the 501st Legion Clone Trooper and the Clone Trooper Lieutenant.
