TFN Review : Clone Trooper Deluxe: Veteran Sixth Scale Figure By Sideshow Collectibles

Posted by Dustin on February 25, 2014 at 09:00 AM CST

Please note that the Clone Trooper Deluxe: Veteran Sixth Scale Figure By Sideshow Collectibles is identical to the Clone Trooper Deluxe: ‘Shiny’ Sixth Scale Figure, other than weathering, and that some portions of the review have been duplicated.

Sideshow Collectibles sixth scale Clone Trooper Deluxe: Veteran is a masterpiece of collectible toy art. Simply put, you'll want this regardless of how old you are.

The figure arrived in a sturdy cardboard box with plenty of packing material for safeguarding it during shipment. Once removed the product box itself contains a magnetic flap on the front if you wish to not open your collectible, and just want to take a peek ever so often. I'm not that type of collector fortunately and removed the figure from the top of the box which was very easy unlike some other collectibles these days. Sideshow created the box this way so you wouldn't have to rip it open. The outside of the box is branded with the Star Wars logo and features a different image of the figure in a different pose on each side. Really, the box is a pretty cool collectible as well. You won't want to throw it away.

Inside you will find one Deluxe Clone Trooper wearing the phase one helmet encased in a layered clamshell displaying all of the accessories. There are 13 individual hands in various positions to indicate various battlefield commands, plus hold weapons. Also included is the phase two helmet, three weapons, four grenades, a backpack with fabric cover, and some action boots for poses requiring them.

Taking the figure out of the box the fully articulated trooper body looks so delicate but is easily maneuverable when finding that perfect pose. I decided to leave on the phase one helmet since he's a veteran. He most likely hasn't had time to make the upgrade battling opponents in the outer rim. The clone comes with three blasters, and four droid popper grenades. First is the Z-6 rotary blaster cannon, then there's a DC-15A Blaster rifle, and a DC-15S Blaster carbine. Being that this guy is battle tested from his appearance, I assume he knows how to handle the Z-6 rotary blaster cannon. A quick swap of the hands and a few adjustments to his stance and he is now one bad looking clone! One of the cooler additions to the accessories is the backpack featuring a fabric flap. This is is perfect place to keep the four droid popper grenades. The backpack uses a magnet to attach but also includes two arm straps with working clasps. I was blown away with how small they were and the fact that they actually worked! This was helpful in adding the backpack after finding that perfect pose. Which when you do, there's a cool stand to assist you as well.

Overall the Clone Trooper Deluxe: Veteran Sixth Scale Figure By Sideshow Collectibles is a beautiful rendition of the battle worn Clone Trooper. The attention to detail is incredible. That mixed with the full articulation and you pretty much have the perfect posable / playable Clone Trooper to date from any Lucasfilm Licensee. I highly recommend adding one to your collection today!
