Now, watching the Kashyyk scene again, I see only the ‘scout’ type of trooper, not the one that just looks like a camo print over a standard Phase II clone trooper. While my army isn’t intended to depict that exact scene, I want to keep it within Star Wars canon. So, before I buy any more to fill the empty spaces in my vehicles, can anybody tell me if the trooper on the left type actually exists in official Star Wars canon? Or if it’s just a made up thing by Lego?
There has been no evidence of the trooper on the left ever had existed. It’s pretty much a thing LEGO made up using the Phase 2 design for Commander Gree and simplifying it for an ordinary trooper to add more variety to the battle pack.
@prentice1215@JediTimeLord824 Thanks, I’ll look into the Battlefront troopers, I have the recent Republic Fighter Tank set, which will be going towards potential 212th battalion army - so battlefront related stuff is fine for me… It’s just when lego makes it up entirely. It’s quite annoying that they do this, I wish it was just entirely scout troopers for the sake of accuracy to the films. I might consider slowly replacing them all with the scout trooper variants if they’re not mentioned anywhere else in Canon or Legends, and sell the others. From what I can tell they’re cheaper on bricklink anyway.
Is this what everyone is referring to when they say the above trooper was in Battlefront II (2005)?
If it is, I’m not exactly seeing it. Sure, both have green visors, but it’s a 501st Jet Trooper, not a 41st Elite Corps trooper. I could see the argument that it’s the same trooper, but with different legion insignia, however.
That is also a nickname, or rather a real-world marketing term used mainly by LEGO. The problem with the Turbo Tank is that it’s used so infrequently we don’t really know what they’d call it in-universe.
