Biography: The 501st Clone Trooper uses a jet backpack as part of an aerial attack.

Sculpt/Articulation: The 501st Legion Clone Trooper is a repaint of the CW2 2012 Clone Trooper (Phase II Armor) figure features 12 points of articulation including ball-jointed/insert-molded shoulders, elbows and knees; swivel hips, waist and wrists and ball-jocket neck.

• Accessories (2): Jetpack and DC-15S blaster

• Packaging: The packaging gets a revamp for 2013 to commemorate the release of Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones in 3-D. A dynamic illustration of Yoda replaces Darth Maul on most Star Wars licensed items for 2013 and the overall blue and white design is updated to an attractive green and white color scheme. While the overall style of the packaging is the same as 2012, gone are the pack-in Galactic Battle Game components (game card, die, instructions) and the bubble now advertises the Fighter Pods line from Hasbro. Included with each figure there is a unique Fighter Pods Rampage game code to be used online at FighterPods.com.

*Due to the cancelation of Attack of the Clones in 3D, all of the scheduled basic figures in the Yoda line look for 2013 have been canceled in the US but are being released in various markets overseas and in Canada. There are no plans for the 9 figures in this assortment to receive distribution in the United States.

Other Notes: The 501st Legion Clone Trooper is based on his appearance in the Season 5 episode "Sabotage"
