#97: Star Wars Vintage Collection Clone Trooper

Unlike the magnaguard, Hasbro has not been shy about making many clone trooper figures. I have a bunch of clones, and almost all of them are variations of some kind, rather than exactly the same figure over and over again. Going back to basics for the Vintage Collection, this is a slightly different clone than the one that's been readily available in the Saga Legends sub-line. For starters, this version doesn't have the antenna on the back that so many clone troopers have. Also, this one has a removable helmet. As far as I know, this is the first time an all white armored trooper has been released with a removable helmet singly carded. Finally! The other big feature setting this clone apart is the addition of the ball jointed hips. I hope this becomes a standard feature of future figures, but it seems to only slowly be working its way into the Star Wars line. If GI Joe can have them, why can't Star Wars? Either way, this is definitely a good standard clone trooper figure to have if you don't already have one. If you want to army build, this would be a good figure to bulk up your ranks with.
