CC-5052, nicknamed "Bly," was a Clone Commander and Advanced Recon Commando who served in the Grand Army of the Republic's 327th Star Corps during the Clone Wars. A genetic clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Bly was grown on the planet Kamino. During the course of the War, he served under Jedi General Aayla Secura, a female Twi'lek Jedi Master who was once apprenticed to the infamous Jedi Quinlan Vos. Bly developed a close working relationship with Secura and accompanied the Jedi Master on a variety of missions to different planets throughout the war.
Whilst in the skies above the planet Quell, Bly and Secura were attacked by a fleet of ships belonging to the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During a chaotic rescue by the Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, the frigate that the group were attempting escape onboard suddenly entered hyperspace, where they narrowly avoided crashing into a star. As a result, the frigate crash landed on the nearby planet Maridun, where the group sought out help for Skywalker who had been wounded during their escape. After discovering a Lurmen village and discussing their situation with the village elder, Skywalker was brought to the village to be nursed back to good health.
Later, as Bly and the others rested at the village, Separatist battle droids arrived and the group discovered a Confederate outpost where an important weapons test would determine whether or not a new Separatist Defoliator Deployment Tank was fit for use. The group then waited for the cover of nightfall before infiltrating the outpost and stealing valuable equipment which, when they returned to the village, they used to shield the Lurmen people from the Defoliator's devastating cannon. Bly and the others fought the battle droids in an attempt to protect the villagers and after the Lurmen aided them, the battle was won.

The outcries from the collecting community were thunderous when we discovered that Hasbro was going to be “dumbing down” the articulation in The Clone Wars line. Long awaited figures in the 2012 line including Captain Rex (CW13) (in his Phase II armor), Clone Commander Fox (CW18) and Clone Commander Wolffe (CW17) had been designed to come without wrist and knee articulation which perplexed and angered longtime collectors of The Clone Wars basic figure line. For reasons unknown, evidence now exists that Hasbro may have felt the ripples of fans’ anger and began backpedaling their “new” approach and started adding some articulation back into the sculpts. Although the effort is appreciated, it’s all for naught because The Clone Wars line has ultimately been cancelled. Animated figures will no longer be coming and instead Hasbro will be beta testing realistic sculpts with only five points of articulation instead. The future is bleak and the health of the line is grim. So at this point we can only take one day at a time and see where everything ends up. It’s just sad that one of Hasbro’s best lines has been cancelled because of the fears that the multimedia support of the franchise is performing below expectations.
Captain Rex has indeed bit upgraded from 2012’s SW [TPM 3D] Captain Rex (CW13) figure. But it may not be everything that you were hoping to see. We suppose we should just be thankful that Hasbro has given the phase II version of Captain Rex a second look at all, but between the sadness of the line reaching its ends and Hasbro not going the full distance with the 2013 updated version this time, it’s not going to be a cause for celebration. The biggest benefit for Captain Rex is the inclusion of ball-jointed knees. This gives the collector (and the kid) more versatility and play value. Because Hasbro now believes that less articulation is kid-friendly, it’s quite an astonishing mirac
The Muunilinst 10 was an elite group of Advanced Recon Commandos and clone troopers led by ARC Captain Fordo that consisted of two ARC lieutenants, and seven infantry clones with ARC training. Captain Fordo and the ARC lieutenants were trained by Jango Fett himself whereas the infantry clone troopers were trained by ARC trooper instructors. The mission that they are most known for (and their namesake) was the destruction of the Harnaidan defensive cannon on Muunilinst. The mission on Muunilinst would also see them fight alongside with Obi-Wan Kenobi to capture the Banking Clan headquarters and defeat the fearsome bounty hunter, Durge.
Soon after the Battle of Muunilinst, Fordo would lead a team of 20 ARC lieutenants on a mission to evacuate the surviving Jedi Generals from Hypori. This operation would see them engage in a vicious battle with General Grievous. Although they were the best of the best, The Muunilinst 10 would sustain some casualties. The clone trooper CT-43/002 was killed during an ambush on Muunilinst and four ARC lieutenants were cut down by Grievous at Hypori.

Bantha Squad was quickly established by the Grand Army of the Republic as a response to the destruction of entire platoons in the Clone Army. Assigned to specifically target Hailfire-class droid tanks, Bantha Squad included specialists in heavy weapons, aerial recon and demolitions. With these combined skills, the squad was capable of pinpointing and attacking Hailfire droids with the firepower needed to immobilize and demolish them in any assault operation.
Bantha Squad's tank gunner commander
The tank gunner commander of Bantha Squad was an expert in the use and application of heavy weapons and demolitions, uniquely qualifying him to formulate successful strategies against Hailfire droids. The troopers under his command used a modified version of the A6 Juggernaut turbo tank's heavy repeating laser cannon to bombard Hailfire droids with weapons fire before a final application of explosives. Bantha squad also included an aerial recon trooper that would monitor approaching enemy forces from the air and relay the location of Hailfire droids to their squad members on the ground.

Bantha Squad clones were outfitted in white Phase I armor, with light- and dark-green designs to mark their squad affiliation. The commander wore extra plating on his helmet and body armor, and a kama for anti-blast protection against crippling injury as well as to signify his rank.
In addition to jetpacks, aerial recon troopers wore macrobinoculars on their helmets and carried special communications equipment to relay key tactical information.
Bantha soldiers were issued the standard DC-15A blaster rifles, with the more compact counterpart—the DC-15S blaster carbine—assigned to the aerial recon trooper. Jetpacks featured built-in warheads, which cause devastating blasts against enemy units. The squad's clones were each equipped with utility belts, with the addition of holsters for the commander, who sported a pair of customized DC-17 hand blasters. #clonejourneys#cloneWars#lifeIsClone#cloneLife#SW3#starwars3lite 🔥 #starwars3lite#dontblowmystarwarshigh#starwars#starwarsdaily
As Chancellor of the Republic and Dark Lord of the Sith, Palpatine orchestrated the outbreak of the devastating Clone Wars ten years after the Naboo Crisis. He himself headed both the Galactic Republic and, secretly, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The public leader of this splinter faction was former Jedi Master Count Dooku, Sidious' second apprentice as Darth Tyranus in the wake of Maul's presumed death on Naboo. As billions perished in the war, the vast majority of Republic citizens rallied behind Chancellor Palpatine, giving him enough support to amend the Galactic Constitution in the name of security and transfer most of the Senate's executive authority to his own office. In 19 BBY, following Tyranus's demise, Palpatine revealed his identity as Darth Sidious to the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, telling that the dark side teachings that Plagueis had pursued could help Skywalker to save his wife, whom Skywalker had foreseen dying untimely. A failed attempt by the Jedi High Council to arrest Palpatine ensued, and Skywalker pledged himself to Sidious's teachings as Darth Vader. All members of the Jedi Order were accused of treason and betrayed by their clone troopers to the point of virtual extermination. Without the Jedi to oppose him, Palpatine declared himself Emperor of the first Galactic Empire, bringing an end to the Republic that had stood for over 25,000 years. #starwars3lite 🔥 #starwars3lite#SW3#starwars#starwarsnerd#starwarsgeek#starWarsdaily#clonewars#clonejourneys#clonelife#lifeIsClone#dontblowmystarwarshigh
