no it dosent.....i know, it sucks

so can anyone help with my plea above?

Ah, okay. I actually needed that to answer your question.

 I've wanted to get it because of it's customising possibilities. You can use the jetpack trooper as a base and take some parts out and replace them with other clonetrooper parts from different figs to make it more poseable.

 You could use the boil-and pop method that customizers use (I'll post a link to that in this post when I edit this)

 You'd need the #6 clone, the AT-TE tank gunner, and the jetpack clone.

 First, you boil-and pop off the right forearm and the whole left arm off of the jetpack clone. Then you boil and pop out the forearms of the #6 clone. You then boil-and pop out the tank gunner's left arm out so you only have the upper arm.

 Then, while the pieces are still boiled/bendy, you but the left upper arm of the tank gunner into the empty shoulder hole of the jetpack trooper, then you add in the #6 forearms to the "vacant" elbow holes of your customised trooper.

 if the pieces fit together, it should make it slightly more poseable, but I have yet to get either a jetpack clone or a tank gunner, so this is just a theory. it's fun to customize, though; so try it!

ya but no one want to do that

I like this figure, i know the articulation is not the best, but it looks good on display.  I cant get the head to movie either, i dont think it can be moved without breaking the guy.  

One thing it is 100 times better than that cdeluxe clone trooper with speeder bike from AOTC.  I was very disappointed in that one.

It has the same head articulation like #6 or #41.
Just give it a little twist, and it will be able to move again.

There are 2 variations on the jetpack troopers if you take the head off,
one is with a non-painted (white) ball connecting to the neck, one is painted (black) ball connecting to the neck.

from what I hear, that's what made the jetpack clonetrooper so hard to move his head. The paint on the ball joint dried when the head was on it and it caked in the head's position, but I also hear after a while, it's possible to get it moving.

If it weren't for this review, I wouldn't even have known that the head could move.  Mine is the black ball joint version and I think that might be the earlier one and when Hasbro realized that the heads were getting stuck like that, they went back to the non painted one.  The main thing I hate about the figure is that it doesn't have holes in his feet.  I was gonna display him in my Assault Gunship just about to leap out and then realized he had no holes in his feet for the pegs.
