The bright orange visors and armor sported by the Phase II LEGO® Clone Troopers make for an awesome addition to your minifigs.
If you’re a fan of both LEGO® and Star Wars, then the Phase II (also known as Phase 2) Clone Troopers are a must-have addition to your collection. These minifigures are a part of the iconic Star Wars Clone Army (modeled after the Bounty Hunter Jango Fett, but with orange), and have made their mark in the Star Wars franchise through their unwavering loyalty to the Jedi Order, their bravery on the battlefield, and their devotion to the insidious installation of the Empire.
We’ll be taking a closer look at two Phase II Clone Troopers minifigures from the LEGO® Star Wars Revenge of The Sith line: The Clone Trooper 212th Attack Battalion (Phase 2) with Dirt Stains and Blaster 75337 and the Clone Trooper Commander Cody, 212th Attack Battalion (Phase 2) with Visor and Blaster 75337.

The Clone Trooper Commander Cody, 212th Attack Battalion (Phase 2) with Visor and Blaster 75337 is another highly detailed minifigure from the LEGO Star Wars Revenge of The Sith line. As the commander of the 212th Attack Battalion, Commander Cody is a fan favorite among Star Wars fans and LEGO ®collectors alike.
Commander Cody’s orange visor was a new piece that was specifically designed for the Phase II Clone Trooper minifigures, and it does an excellent job of capturing the helmet’s design. The leg pieces feature intricate printing that captures the Cody’s battle-worn armor in great detail, including the various stains and chips that make up the armor’s design.
The History Of LEGO® Phase II Clone Troopers
The LEGO® Phase II Clone Trooper is an iconic piece of the brand’s Star Wars line, having deep roots in the Star Wars saga and LEGO® production history. With the introduction of licensed sets like Star Wars in 1999, LEGO® has elevated its popularity and reach, creating an international phenomenon that combines the enjoyment of building with the excitement of the Star Wars universe.
The LEGO® Star Wars range began in conjunction with the release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, marking the first time that LEGO® had ever purchased rights to a franchise. This was a ground-breaking move that proved immensely successful. In the Star Wars timeline, Clone Troopers are an integral part of the prequel trilogy. However, the Phase II Clone Troopers, recognized for their distinctive, fully-enclosed helmets, debuted much later in the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which hit the screens in 2005.
In the LEGO® universe, the first Phase II Clone Trooper minifigures made their debut in 2013, eight years after their on-screen introduction. These figures first appeared in set 75028 Clone Turbo Tank, immediately winning the hearts of fans. The LEGO® Phase II Clone Trooper was a significant update from the Phase I versions, featuring a redesigned helmet that better represented their film counterparts. The trooper’s body was made up of white parts, with black printing to represent the under-suit and colored printing for the armor details.
For LEGO® collectors and Star Wars enthusiasts, the Phase II Clone Troopers were highly sought after because they came in several different variants. These variants reflected the units seen in the Star Wars films and the animated Clone Wars series. Fans could collect the classic white troopers or chase after the 501st Legion, 212th Attack Battalion, and Shock Trooper versions. The diversity of the variants allowed bricks fans to recreate massive Star Wars battles on a smaller scale or simply display them proudly.

What is the difference between LEGO Clone Trooper Phase 1 and Phase 2?
Unlike Phase I, Phase II did not feature an internal life support system, necessitating the use of an external respirator in the absence of breathable atmosphere. As such, Phase II helmets featured an advanced filtration system, and were also designed to be more comfortable to wear than Phase I helmets.
