One of the most impressive figure in the 2012 phase of The Clone Wars line was Clone Commander Cody (CW7). One of the few figures from The Clone Wars line to come with a full 14 points of articulation, Clone Commander Cody was proof that Hasbro could deliver amazing clone leaders while including play value for the much younger collectors. Clone Commander Cody was a literal work of art. Hasbro added all of the right elements into the figure. Coming with The Vintage Collection premium quality articulation, Cody also came with brilliant color, battle-damage and a ranking badge decal that looked simply amazing. An all-new head sculpt was tooled as well and was a step above what Hasbro had given to us previously. Besides possessing a slight lack of complete movement in the lower body, Clone Commander Cody set a new standard for Hasbro. Sadly it was a standard they couldn’t keep up. Future clone commanders in the line would feel a setback, as articulation was greatly reduced on them unfortunately. Thankfully, Hasbro must have experienced a change of heart and the 2013 The Clone Wars figures would receive updates and upgrades and super-articulated figures like Clone Commander Cody would see a rerelease.
For all intents and purposes, Clone Commander Cody can be considered a repack, but we’re not going to qualify that with the word “straight.” Hasbro has changed some of the details on the figure and we don’t know if this was intentional or unintentional. We’re going with unintentional. But some of the colors have been changed slightly and some of the applications have been tightened up for the better as well. Most notable for us is the change in Clone Commander Cody’s facial scarring. This time around it has been applied more thickly, in a different color, and almost in a different shape. It appears to be painted on a bit more sloppily, but it’s noticeably different. You’ll also notice that Hasbro cleaned up front of his hairline and his widow’s peak is nearly gone now. Hasbro has also tightened up the paint operations on his ranking badge. There was a wider outside perimeter of silver that encased the badge. That looks more streamlined (and ultimately better). Also, we have noticed very slight color variations in the orange color flashes and the gray abdomen section of his armor (the torso area only). The orange paint is shinier and the gray section is a shade darker.
Status: Clone Commander Cody is a slight repaint of 2012's SW [TPM 3D] Clone Commander Cody (CW7) figure. The scar on his face is a different thickness and color, his ranking square has been streamlined and the orange color flashes and the gray section on the abdomen section of his armor are slightly different shades than the previous release.
