This Clone Sharpshooter action figure was released in an exclusive Toys'R'Us 6-pack in the summer of 2009. The entire set was a re-release from The Anniversary Collection's exclusive Previews set. The Sharpshooter clone could be seen in the Battlefront II video game which was released across multiple gaming platforms, but was never seen in any of the movies.
The clone trooper is a repaint of the previously released Airborne Clone Trooper figure from the 2007 Anniversary Collection. The figure has 14 joints, including a ball-jointed neck, ball-jointed shoulders, ball-jointed elbows, swivel wrists, swivel waist, 2 movable legs, 2 ball-jointed knees and 2 ball-jointed ankles. As accessories, Hasbro included a blaster rifle (which fits well into both hands), a hand blaster (which sits loosely in the hands, but is a perfect fit for the shoulder bag), a removable helmet (sits loosely, and you might have either the chin or the back of the head peek out underneath), and a removable shoulder bag (which has room for the hand blaster).
The paint application is very well done, with lots of scuffs and battle damage on the clone armor and the helmet. Unfortunately Hasbro kept the shoulder bag in a simple gray which feels a bit cheap compared to the rest of the figure. All in all, this Sharpshooter clone figure is well done, it came with plenty of accessories, it has a cool paint job, plenty of articulated joints and looks great on display!
