This special collector's set of figures brings you everything you need for battle, including:

1x Delta Four-Oh / RC-1140 'Fixer'
1x Delta Oh-Seven / RC-1207 'Sev'

Each figure comes with weapons and accessories needed to fight the good fight during the Clone Wars!
Taken straight from the commando raids in the hit LucasArts Xbox title Republic Commando, this set brings the boys of Delta Squad to action figure form for the very first time. These warriors were trained on Kamino, and were first deployed behind-the-scenes during the Battle of Geonosis, which took place at the end of Episode II: Attack of the Clones. While there, they were put to work destroying the Separatist's droid factories.
Since then, Delta Squad filled a variety of roles for the Republic during the Clone Wars including the assasination of Geonosian leader Sun Fac, the rescue of their fellow clones from Omega Squad, and some missions on the Wookiee world of Kashyyyk.
From the very beginning, it was understood that the tactical superiority of the Grand Army of the Republic would reside in its flexibility of response. Hopelessly outnumbered by the droid armies of the Separatists, every Clone Trooper is expected to be the equal of ten of his enemy. Sometimes though, ten-to-one odds is too much to hope for, and that's when you call in the Deltas.
Known to his men as "Boss," Three-Eight doesn't talk much, except to bark out orders in a voice that carries over the fiercest artillery barrage.
The resident demolitions expert in Delta Squad, Scorch has a special relationship with explosions and the gear that makes them happen. If it ain't broke, give it to Scorch and you can count on getting it back in at least three pieces.
Second in command of Delta Squad, Fixer handles code breaking and computer slicing. Always at the front of a charge, it's his voice that urges his squad mates on under fire. Off the battlefield however, he prefers the company of a good, quiet power droid to his fellow Deltas.
Clones are supposed to be good at fighting, but they're not really supposed to enjoy it. So no one really knows why Sev seems to be happiest when the battle is thickest. If you're looking for him, try checking the middle of the huge pile of blasted battle droids.
Commander of the Geonosian forces during the Battle of Geonosis, Sun Fac rose to his position of power through a combination of combat prowess and a calculating willingness to do whatever it takes to win.
Though they lack ranged weapons, their ability to fly gives them an acute advantage on an open battlefield and their powerful force pikes can kill with a single blow.
