Product Backstory
At the time of their introduction, the Republic clone trooper represented the future of galactic warfare. Far superior to the battle droid armies of the era, the clone troopers formed the backbone of the Republic's new military initiative that battled against the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. So pervasive and symbolic were they of the times, the galaxy-wide conflict that saw their debut took its name from their ranks: the Clone Wars. It would be a long and bloody conflict in the years to come, but the efficiency of the clone trooper infantry would be proven time and again on many scattered worlds.

Identical in form, physical prowess, stamina and mental capacity, each of the first generations of clone troopers were fully encased in hard white armor, each identical face concealed behind a t-shaped visor. Color-coded flashes on the armor denoted rank and eventually came to signify individual units, who often became more customized with mission specific gear and armor modifications. Units such as the Galactic Marines, the Shock Troopers, the Attack Battalion and the Star Corps had distinct armor variations that made them stand out.

Denoted by the orange flashes on their armor, the 212th Attack Battalion operated under the orders of Clone Marshal Commander Cody and High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi. General Kenobi led the 212th Attack Battalion to the Utapau system, storming the stronghold of Pau City in the hunt for General Grievous. While Obi-Wan battled head to head with Grievous, the 212th was able to gain the advantage, though not without heavy casualties.
