Description: Clone Trooper
Prefix: TC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: The Clone Wars, seasons 1-3

Clone troopers are an army of identical, genetically-modified clones of Jango Fett, created to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic during the conflict that came to be known as the Clone Wars.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

In the page below, items listed in blue are recommended features that will improve the quality of the costume. Items listed in red are intended to further enhance the finished costume.

See this thread at clonetroopers.net for the differences between the sculpts.
