Jango Fett based clones and they definitely dress in similar armor to the clones. There are multiple different types of these guys in Jedi: Fallen Order, but this guy is actually a Purge Stormtrooper Commander. Let's check him out after the break and see how this guy turned out after the break...
Height: 6 inches tall
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-15 and DC 15A blasters
Non-Scalper Price: $23 dollars by itself or $83 dollars bundled with the game ($93 for the deluxe game bundle).
* Since the Purge Commanders wear the Phase 2 Clone Trooper armor and the kamas of the commanders, the Purge Trooper is largely the same as Clone Commander like Commander Wolffe (on the left). The Purge Trooper is also sporting a shoulder pauldron though, which is exactly the same as the pauldrons worn by the Sandtroopers (on the right). Except for the helmet and the belt, the Purge Trooper is mostly reused from previous figures.
* If you own any of the Phase II clones or commanders, you kind of know what to expect here. That being said, this figure does look really good. The armor is very striking in person with a very glossy black and blood red accents. These guys are quite fearsome. I like the addition of the shoulder pauldron and the white stripes on the armor. It's very ceremonial looking. The colors and pageantry of the uniform definitely seem very reminiscent of the SS, which isn't a good thing on its own (seriously, Nazis suck) but it does visually tie in to the idea of the Empire being space fascists. I mean, these guys are essentially hunting down the Jedi in an effort to purge them from the galaxy. You'll now be even more enthusiastic every time Cal Kestis takes one of these guys down, won't you?
* The helmets on these guys are really cool. They're very different from both Stormtrooper and Clone Trooper helmets, actually very similar to the Clone Paratrooper helmets. The visor is a very deep, dark maroon color.
* Another mark identifying this as a Purge Trooper Commander is the blood red Imperial cog on the Trooper's shoulders. It looks great (please ignore the "lens flare" in my photo).
* While the Purge Troopers kamas look a lot like the kamas of some of the clone leaders, like Captain Rex, it's actually a but different. Well, the belt is, anyways. There are no holsters and there also are two red plastic pieces that trail off from beneath the belt buckle and rest under the edges of the kama. The kama can rest under them, too, but I think having them under the kama is correct.
* The Purge Commanders carry many of the standard Clone Trooper weapons, one of which is the DC-15. We've seen this weapon dozens of times in the Black Series, but here it is again. It's not weathered at all but it does have a paint application on it.
* Next up is the DC-15A, another popular Clone blaster that has been included with most clone trooper releases.
* The lack of the newer shoulders that slide under the
armor is missed here, and the joints are starting to show their age.
