Arc Trooper Echo Reference Sheet by Blayaden Arc Trooper Echo Reference Sheet by Blayaden
CT-21/0408 "Echo" is one of my favorite characters from the Clone Wars animated series. "Echo" got his nickname due to his constant "echoing" standard clone rules and procedures. During his time at the Rishi Outpost Station, he enjoyed the quiet and spent his time reading the reg manuals.

The station would later be attacked by elite commando droids, and the "rookie" clone trooper was pushed into action. After a skirmish with a Rishi eel, Clone Captain Rex put his hand (covered with the eel's blood) on Echo's chest armor, as a symbol of his "graduation" from "rookie".

After the incident, Echo and his surviving team mate "Fives" would serve in the battle of Kamino, where he and Fives would prove themselves again. After the hard fought battle, Echo and Fives were promoted to ARC Troopers for their heroism and valor.

Echo and Fives assisted in the rescue of Jedi Master Even Piell from the maximum security prison called "The Citadel", and Echo lost his life in a skirmish to protect their transport ship.

Most of the characters in the Clone Wars series have good reference sheets, or at least some decent artwork done of them. To my (and I'm sure many peoples) dismay, there is NONE of Echo in his awesome ARC Trooper armor.

So here it is. A reference sheet made by studying the ARC Trooper's armor, and watching the episodes with Echo's ARC armor to get the colors right. I'm 90% positive of its accuracy.

This is something I want to give to all of Echo's fans. I worked very hard on it, and it pains me that he won't be appearing in the show again. (Fives... stay alive... please!) Feel free to use it, but please give credit should you post it or use the artwork elsewhere.

I MADE the base by using screenshots and using the official Arc Trooper phase 1.5/ phase II action figure.

Same here!  The lack of information on him is what made me make this. ^^

I really like this, and am glad you decided to make it! :)
I haven't been able to find a good reference, either.

First Echo, then Waxed, thank goodness the series ended before they could kill off Fives or Rec!

I re-watched the citadel arc today, and I'm pretty pleased to say I'm not making any changes to it yet. (I might re-draw it... but the colors are accurate!)

Maybe if we're lucky we might get another "flashback" episode like "ARC Trooopers".

They did it before, I don't see why they wouldn't again!

After Hardcase's noble sacrifice, I still can't believe that they killed Waxer like that. The Umbara arc was really harsh.

Damn Krell...

Yeah. I didn't watch, but I heard about it and read the article on Wookieepedia. Hardcase, Waxer, Echo...too many dear clones dying.

Haven't been able to watch after Echo, and during the airing of the Umbara arc, when I read the articles, man, I really HATED Krell. Such an ass for a Jedi.

Well, it was good "character development" for Rex and Fives (and the handful of the other named clones like Dogma and Tup)

Hardcase was a deliberate sacrifice, and a noble one. I could live with that. Echo never got a choice in the matter.

But having Waxer being "just another casualty" really ...irks me to no end.

Character development or not...just can't stand seeing favorite clones bite it. *gets too attached to clones* ;)

Oh, believe me, I COMPLETELY agree! The only reason I watch the show is because of the Clones. I usually skip episodes that don't feature them.
