Since the late seventies, the invasion of Star Wars figures has been massive all over the world. From the older Kenner toys through to the Hasbro range and now the newer Lego figures, there is something for every action figure collector to get excited over. The Lego range can be used in a standard game of Lego, but you can treat it as a standalone collectable. I like the Lego range because the toys are cheap and they still look cool as display pieces.
This little fellow is the Clone Gunner. From the newer batch of figures, he is designed to operate the gun turrets. The figure is shaped just like any standard Lego man and he is about an inch in height. You can move his head and also raise the arms and bend the legs; maybe seat him down to have him fire upon enemies.
The design work is flawless, with a beautiful helmet which oozes style and form. The gold sheen and black flecks are brilliant and give the toy a look of importance. On his torso, the armour has been etched on with a surprisingly high level of detail. You can easily make out his belt and shoulder padding and for a Lego figure, this is impressive stuff.
The figure could have been enhanced with some artillery, even if it was a small blaster, as such he stands quite bare. As there are lots of Clone Gunners, you could buy a few and have an army of them raging a war on the enemy. Each figure can be bought for about three pounds, which is a fair price for a cute collectable. Ideal for Lego enthusiasts but just as appealing for die hard Star Wars fans, this is one seriously funky figure
