Clone Trooper is a custom minifiigures in the custom theme, Lego Star Wars.

BackgroundEdit

Clone troopers were grown and trained on Kamino, cloned from the bounty hunter Jango Fett for the Galactic Republic. The troopers were first called into service during the Battle of Geonosis, when Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala were captured. A Jedi taskforce led by Mace Windu was initially sent in to rescue the three captives, however the large number of Battle Droids eventually wore down the small army. Clone troopers flew in on LAAT/i gunships with Jedi Master Yoda, evacuating the surviving Jedi. The Grand Army of the Republic, led by Jedi Generals then managed to overcome the Confederacy droid forces on Geonosis, and the first battle of the Clone Wars was won by the clone and Jedi forces.

Clone troopers continued to serve as the main infantry units throughout the Clone Wars, participating in most battles throughout the galaxy-wide war. While most clones were standard infantry, some took on specilist roles, such as pilots, gunners, and bomb disfusers, however all had some degree of proficiency with handheld blaster weapons. Clone trooper armour evolved over the course of the three-year war, first beginning with the Phase I armour, and transitioning into Phase II, which was more confortable for the troopers to wear and offered greater protection.

As the Clone Wars drew to a close, Chancellor Palpatine, who was secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious and enemy to the Jedi, ordered the clone troopers to execute Order 66, designating the Jedi as traitors to the Republic who should be shot on sight. The vast majority of clones complied, killing their former Generals and crippling the Jedi Order. After Palpatine reformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire and declared himself Emperor, he ordered his apprentice, Darth Vader, formerly the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker to eliminate the Separatist leaders who he knew were stationed on the planet Mustafar. After Vader completed this task, he then broadcast a signal he obtained from the Separatist base, which shut down the droid forces, effectively ending the Clone Wars.

Under the rule of the Empire, clone troopers transitioned into the soldiers known as Imperial Stormtroopers, a force made up of clone troopers initially, but later also consisted of male humans who were either uncloned or cloned from sources other than Jango Fett.
