A Siege Battalion Trooper is a minifigure replica of the 442nd Siege Battalion trooper from the Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. It was released in 2005 as part of the Revenge of the Sith line, although these troopers were never actually seen in the movie at all. They are Clone Troopers in standard Phase II armor with green markings. This minifigure makes an appearance in two of the four LEGO Star Wars video games.
Description and Accessories
The Siege Battalion Trooper's appearance is based of that of a clone trooper from Episode III in phase two armor, with green markings. His torso is colored to resemble white battle armor, he has white arms, white legs, a black hip, black hands, and a fully black minifigure head. He comes with an exclusive Phase II clone helmet. It contains an almost T shaped visor, which is black, empty and has two filtration holes. The trooper has green "V"-shaped markings on top of helmet and on the torso. He is part of the 442nd Siege Battalion. His armour resembles a 212th Trooper with light green markings instead of the usual yellow-orange.
The Siege Battalion Trooper is exclusive to the set 7260 Wookiee Catamaran, which was released in 2005 as part of the Revenge of the Sith line. Two Siege Battalion Troopers were included, each with a blaster. They came with a swamp speeder.
Video Game Appearances
- Siege Battalion troopers appeared in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and later LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. They appeared in both games in the same level, which is Defense of Kashyyyk. In this level, the player takes the role of Yoda and Chewbacca, and Order 66 has been initiated, but since this level takes place shortly before Order 66 they are friendly for a small time.Therefore, when Order 66 is initiated the Siege Battalion troops suddenly turn against Yoda and his Wookiee partner. In the level, these troopers serve as the most seen enemies, along with Battle Droids. These clones can be later bought from the in-game store and played as. Before the player can purchase them, one must unlock them.
- The trooper in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game has blue markings instead of green, even though its HUD Character Portrait shows it with green markings. In LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga the markings are converted to green, although both blue and green marked helmets and torsos are available for customization at the Cattina.
- Although the Siege Battalion Troopers look exactly identical to their in-game counterparts, in-game, they are named "Clone (Episode III, Swamp)".
- They are sometimes confused with the more commonly known and seen 41st Elite Legion, but the 41st has full olive green camo armor. This is understandable because in both LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga the walker pilots are Siege Troopers, despite the known 41st Legion troopers actually being shown in Revenge of the Sith.
