Commander Fox led the Coruscant Guard, an elite clone trooper unit assigned to serve as peace-keepers on the Galactic Republic capital.

Hasbro didn’t produce too many Clone Commander Fox figures throughout the years, but when they did, they were universally lauded by collectors. Making his debut in The Clone Wars film (in phase I armor), Clone Commander Fox gained a whole new level of notoriety when the phase II version of him was revealed. His plastoid armor became redder, and his overall look and appearance got cooler. Hasbro tends to agree that the phase II armored look is better, and they produced a fantastic version of him for the popular The Black Series [Phase III] line. Clone Commander Fox is a shared exclusive, with two of the bigger retailers Bares & Noble and GameStop both chipping in to help this figure get the prominent distribution throughout the USA (and abroad). Clone Commander Fox is a gorgeous action figure. The red and white armor is striking, and Hasbro did a fantastic job preventing any bleeding of paint operations. The final paint job is clean and crisp, and from head to toe, Clone Commander Fox shines. We have a small bone to pick with some of the figure’s deco, but we’ll get to that shortly. Let’s talk about how Hasbro made this figure looks so good.

Clone Commander Fox is a retool and subsequent repaint of 2014's TBS [P1] Clone Trooper (#14) figure. As you know, the Clone Trooper has become a base figure for many other clone characters released in the line to date. Clone Commander Fox is the next character to be made from these parts. This time, however, the figure comes with all-new hands (we’re not able to source them to any other figure), and the belt/holster combination piece is from 2017's TBS [P3] Clone Captain Rex HASCON exclusive figure. He’s a hodgepodge of parts, but looks all-new, thanks to how seamless everything came together. Hasbro once again added a soft-goods kama, this time black with red trim, and its drape is perfect and hangs as needed to complete Clone Commander Fox’s appearance. Most important, Hasbro gave the figure an all-new portrait, and it’s perfectly proportioned to the figure’s body and detailed wonderfully. One of the few clones that doesn’t have a removable helmet, we’re glad to see Hasbro go in this direction to produce the cleanest figure possible. You’ll find white details throughout the figure, and they bring an incredible amount of brightness to the figure.

Clone Commander Fox comes with four weapons that include two DC-17 blaster pistols, a DC-15 blaster, and a DC-15A blaster. All of the accessories interact with the figure excellently. Clone Commander Fox comes with new hands that none of the other clones in The Black Series 6” line has, or that we can recall. They’re more cupped, and there is no pointing figure on the right hand. They all interact with the included weapon accessories nicely, and they back of the hands have clone armor on them. So it feels like they should have come from a previously existing figure. But we don’t know what figure that might be, or if they’re 100% all-new. Things are beginning to get blurry in the line now, with so many figures produced. As we’ve mentioned, we love the deco on Clone Commander Fox. That said, we’re not crazy about the brown splotches on the inside of the thigh armor. It looks like he lost bowel control, and it’s quite displeasing to the eye. There is minor dirt throughout the figure, but it’s barely noticeable and doesn’t take your attention away from the figure. But you’ll notice the dirt on this upper legs. Clone Commander Fox poses beautifully in many configurations. It’s a well-made figure.
