The planet Saleucami is pockmarked with large craters created by meteors that hit the planet. This barren desert world becomes a place of conflict during the Outer Rim Sieges of the Clone Wars. The Republic ultimately win the battle to secure this hot, dry world, and a small contingent is sent there to conduct mop-up operations, led by the Jedi Master Stass Allie. She and two clone troopers under her command are conducting one of their regular speeder bike patrols when Order 66 is enacted.
Trained by ARC trooper Alpha, Commander Neyo receives the Emperor's instructions to enact Order 66 while on a speeder bike patrol with Stass Allie. He and his wingman allow Allie to move ahead of them, then open fire on the unsuspecting Jedi.
BARC Speeder Bikes:
Aratech speeder bikes provide clone troopers with the operational range, speed, mobility, and firepower they need to accomplish reconnaissance and scouting missions with greater efficiency during the Clone Wars.
Loyalty to tge Republic and Emperor has been programmed into them from their "birth." So when clone troopers are told that someone is an enemy of the Republic, they do not hesitate to execute orders to eradicate the purprted threat.
Points of Interest:
Both Commander Neyo and the Clone Trooper are retools of 2003's CLONE WARS Clone Trooper 03-50. This time around, the hands and legs have been slightly repositioned to better ride the bike, a new belt/harness/shoulder pauldron has been added, and each figure has a new head.
The BARC Speeder is a repaint of the vehicle from 2005's ROTS Deluxe Stass Allie
