The Clone Tank Gunner looks rather like a sleeker version of a Stormtrooper. This is not the first time we have seen Gunner figures released from the Star Wars films. If we nip back to the eighties, we will be reminded of the Imperial Gunner, clad head to foot in black, that was turned into an action figure. There are definite similarities here with the Clone Tank Gunner. You can see how Hasbro have moulded the mask very much in the guise of the Imperial Gunner's helmet. It has the same overlapping features, despite some obvious colour differences.
This chap has interesting work on his shoulder area, with raised armour padding on the shoulders giving him a rather important look. It also suggests that he is about to go straight into battle, and operating a gun turret you would expect him to be kitted out with padding for protection. The grey/black shading gives him a smart look and there is also a nice protruding grey section on his chest, adding to the robust look of the toy.
The rest of the body looks very much like your bog standard Strormtrooper. Slim legs which are verging on the spindly and pretty thin arms too. Though this is accurate, one would expect Gunners to be chunkier than this. The figure comes with his own clone blaster which he grips very well in his hand and also a larger missile launching gun. This gun will fire missiles and adds to the play value of him. Given that the figure is not as elaborate as some of his counterparts, it seems fitting that he is given value with a very substantial weapon. He is poseable at all joints and will cost you around eight pounds to buy as new.
Not the most riveting figure in the range, but a crucial one for completists.
