Coruscant Guard, a division of shocktroopers stationed on Coruscant to provide security to the capital of the Galactic Republic. I'm always down for a new Clone Trooper so Clone Commander Fox was my first pickup on Triple Force Friday. We've had the Coruscant Guard troopers since 2016 so it's nice to finally have Commander Fox to lead them. Let's check him out after the break...
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs,
balljointed hips, a ball jointed abdomen, swivel/hinge shoulders,
swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, a hinged neck,
and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: DC-15A blaster, DC-15 blaster rifle, and 2 DC-17 blaster pistols.
Non-Scalper Price: $23 dollars
* Commander Fox (in the middle) uses most of the same body that Clone Troopers (left) have been using for five years and the newer holstered belt and kama that has been reused previously (most recently with last year's Commander Wolffe, on the right). The only truly new piece here is Fox's helmet.
* While Clone Commander Fox is mostly a repaint, he's a very sharp looking repaint. The red and white color scheme with black accents looks fantastic. Clone Troopers are one of those figure types that just look better as you acquire more of them. They just have a cool shelf presence and I'm always excited to see new ones added to the collection. Personally, I'm glad Hasbro has been very consistent in their parts reuse as it gives the figures a nice uniformity when on display.
* Commander Fox's helmet is unique. It has a visor and antenna on the right side, not unlike Commander Cody's, but the top of the helmet and the small antennae on the top left is very different.
* On his left shoulder Clone Commander Fox is sporting a very nicely painted symbol of the Coruscant Guard. It's quite sharp!
Looking at the figure, you can see that Commander Fox has a number of dry brushed wear and tear effects to give him a more battle-worn appearance. I can understand that some folks would probably rather have a neat, clean looking Clone Commander but I kind of like the personality the paint effects give him.
* Commander Fox utilizes most of the body of a standard Clone Trooper
figure, meaning he's durable and nicely articulated. His hips are
restricted a bit by his holsters and, sadly, his shoulders don't have
the revised pauldrons that allow for a better range of motion. Still,
he's not bad; just not as good as recently created newer figures. You can certainly have a lot of fun posing him and he's sturdy enough to survive most situations he'd be thrown in.
* Fox comes with a nice assortment of weapons, first of which are his two DC-17 blaster pistols. They look great,
feature crisp sculpting, and fit easily in his holsters.
* Next up is the DC-15A blaster. This small rifle has come with most Clone Trooper figures over the past five years but it's still a sharp looking weapon. I like the drybrushed effect on Fox's DC-15A, as it makes it look a bit meaner.
* Last up is another old standby for the Clone Troopers: The DC-15 blaster rifle. Like the standard DC-15A, the DC-15 also has a nice drybrushed effect to give it a bit more pizazz.
* Like Captain Rex and Commander Wolffe before him, Commader Fox has two working holsters and a real fabric kama on his belt.
