Today i want to talk about the 212th Clone Trooper Minifigure from the 2013 set Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon). This Phase II type Clone trooper has two versions, with this one being my favorite.
As with many LEGO Star Wars fans and collectors I am a huge Fan of Phase II Clones. This one is no exception.
Led by Commander Cody snd High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, the 212th Bataillon has become a well respected division during the Clone Wars.
Their concept design is quite interesting. Since the lighting in the Clone Wars show does vary, their armor color changes from orange to yellow to gold at times. That is why there is quite some artistic freedom taken with the iterations of these minifigs.
I personally prefer the Yellowish Golden tint. It reminds me very much of the 2007 Star Corps Trooper and just looks miles better in my opinion.
The torso, legs and arms have a lot of color and detail and make the minifigs look like the sophisticated warriors they are.
Out of all the Clones they are probably some of the best for customization which has been proven by masters like @berlinbricksandcustoms
(Go check him out he’s amazing)
All in all a superb minifigure that is great for customization, mocs, army building and even just showcasing.
That is why its a beloved regular in our shop for only 9,99€ (link in bio)
We hope you are having a fantastic Monday wherever you are in the world 🌎 and keep collecting.
