Clone shock troopers were the special forces clone troopers that formed the Coruscant Guard during the Clone Wars. Though a military force, they were trained as shock troopers and served on Coruscant and a few other select Core Worlds as police, bodyguards, and prison guards, and provided physical security for Republic government buildings. Within the Guard, some troopers were trained specifically for riot control.
Throughout the Clone Wars, the shock troopers were distinguished by red markings on their helmet and body armor since red was the color for Coruscant. This was carried over into the Imperial era when they became identified with an all-crimson body armor.
Shocktroopers were so cool yet barely used in Revenge Of the Sith itself. We've seen them in Clone Wars briefly, as figures and Muggs, even Hot Toys in 12" glory and a few snippets such as Battlefornt 2. These remain a real favourite but just still vastly underused in our opinion. What's your favourite clone trooper?
