Availability: June 2008
Wookiee warriors and clone troopers fight desperately to hold back the waves of battle droids pouring onto Kaskyyyk near the end of the Clone Wars. The lush forests of this once-peaceful planet are burning, and the air is filled with the harsh sounds of battle. Wookiees tear apart battle droids with their bare hands as clone troopers first their blasters at the attacking droids.
One look at the purple color-flashed Kashyyyk Trooper in this Comic Packs set and you’ll probably utter immediately that it isn’t a Kashyyyk Trooper. You would actually be both right and wrong in your assessment. If you can rewind your mind back to the Revenge Of The Sith line in 2005, you may remember that the original concept of the Kashyyyk Trooper was first released in a Galactic Heroes two-pack with an Episode III take on Chewbacca. At the time, none of us knew if this style of clone trooper was actually going to appear in the film. It ended up not being included in the film.... as is.... and instead a red colored version of this BARC Trooper was seen during the Order 66 segment in Revenge Of The Sith with the leader becoming Commander Neyo. (Hasbro also released these clones in the 2007 TAC Treachery On Saleucami Walmart exclusive Battle Packs set.) The artists of the comics didn’t get a good grasp on what the clones looked like who fought in the Battle on Kashyyyk since they had to draw and ink the comics way in advance.
It did however give Hasbro a great idea for an Expanded Universe take on the events of Revenge Of The Sith for the Comic Packs line. Ripped right from one of the panels of the comic, the Kashyyyk Trooper/Wookiee Warrior Comic Packs set is a cool if you can appreciate the advanced look at Episode III and the battle we waited a long time to see. This Comic Packs set is truly based on some great pre-release film concept art – the Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith #3 issue. The Kashyyyk Trooper (actually a BARC Trooper) is nothing new to the line. As we mentioned, it was first released as Commander Neyo from the Walmart exclusive Battle Packs set and he’s super-articulated. He comes with a tightly fitting bandolier/pauldron combination (but please note that it is removable) and a DC-15 blaster rifle. Although the Galactic Heroes version has the symbols on the armor colored in blue, the Hasbro 3.75” version is purple (and it’s also purple in the comics). The Wookiee Warrior is not that big of a deal. But the two severed Battle Droid arms he comes with just sell this set home.
