    Sideshow's Clone Sergeant - Phase 1 !

    Another great entry in Sideshow's "Militaries of Star Wars" collection.

    This Phase 1 Clone shows that with each successive release, Sideshow continues to make little changes and improvements that keep these armored figures fresh.

    The base body is the tightest yet, the pegs on the (many) interchangeable hands (and feet!) feel sturdier and change easier. The "thigh-grabber" stand is now standard and the various hands and "running" feet that Rex featured are also included here.

    It's been cool to see the variety of weathering/distress the Sideshow's been applying to these different clone figures...really distinctive not only to the Clones, but alluding to different environments they may have been in too. This Sarge figure for example, does not have the intense distress that some of the earlier (Phase II) clones have featured...and that makes perfect sense, considering the different phases/times these soldiers served and fought. It's a little detail, but a well-done one.

    The only minor detailing "miss" here is the missing "red tail light"on the back of the helmet's present on the basic Phase I Clone...must've been missed in the finishing process,similar to Rex's missing black speaker on the front of his helmet. It's not a deal-breaker...just a consistency in the detailing Sideshow should be mindful of.

    It was also nice to see a return to such great packaging, the double-fold box with two covered trays, the figure and accessories firmly in those trays with no twist ties in sight. The box bagged, with stryo caps and a sturdy box. After the cheap packaging effort the Yoda figure featured, this was a good sight to see.

    I know some collectors may be feeling a little Clone fatigue, but I'll always be happy to see these armored figures coming up is Cody...and with the outstanding Rex and this fine Sgt. figure already in the collection, the chances of Cody being one of the best releases yet are very good indeed!

    Meanwhile, here's the Phase I Sergeant...
