    Clone Trooper with Jet Pack

    Why, oh WHY does the head on this figure not turn?

    This fig would be PERFECT if the head turned. I still like it, but he comes with what looks like a sniper rifle but can't bring it up to his head to aim it, or even come close to looking like he is aiming it.

    I might swap it out for a DC-10 rifle as that can be held single-handed and looks more realistic than using the rifle he came with in one hand, but still...can anyone think of a good reason why the head would have been molded so as not to move at all?

    Plain-old side-to-side movement would have been just fine...didn't need a ball joint or anything...

    What are the elbows on the fig, are they like the Clone Pilot or Clone Commander type elbow articulation?

    Is the Clone Trooper with Jet Pack in the movie or is it just EU? I haven't seen any released images of him.

    He also doesn't have peg holes in his feet. I was hoping that we could get a few of them to stand on the pegs of the Gunship and be ready for deployment, but no peg holes. Between that and the head, I was not impressed.

    Our dog chewed up the one we had open...I don't think I'll get a replacement.

    There is head articulation - they stick, but it does have it.

    I like this figure, but I still don't see why Hasbro had to make it a $10.00 Deluxe figure. The jet-pack accessory is great, but it really isn't worth the extra money IMO. I have 1 carded and 1 loose but I don't plan on buying any more for that price.
    May the force be with you.

    I agree SK, much like the John Kerry Gen. Riekaan figure.

    Are you sure? Do you have the ability to post a pic? The head was really resistant to moving...I tried fairly hard because I could not believe that the head could not move, but I didn't want to break it.

    I've got the second one I bought in the package, still. If I can get the head to move on the open one, I will open the second one. Otherwise, the second one is going back.
