In just two short months, we’ll all be grabbing our lightsabers, Jedi cloaks, and Darth Vader masks and heading to the theater to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! The next film in the Star Wars franchise takes us back to the days of the original trilogy, focusing on the team of Rebels that captured the Death Star plans- making it possible for Luke Skywalker to heroically blow up the giant Sith space station.
With Rogue One being set in the past, you would think that it’d be full of nothing but familiar elements of the Star Wars universe. However, since the galaxy is so large, we’ll actually be seeing quite a few new things in the film, including new Stormtroopers.
The team in Rogue One will be traveling to the beach-inhabited planet of Scarif, where they’ll be met by a new version of the Empire’s armada, known as Shoretroopers. In order to blend in with the tropical setting of the planet, these Shoretroopers have a very different look from other troopers. Now, thanks to Hot Toys, we have a detailed (and collectible) look at these new troopers.
Hot Toys has revealed a new 1/6th scale Shoretrooper figure for all the collectors out there. As the official description for the figure reads:
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of the Shoretrooper in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, featuring a highly poseable new body with a distinctive helmet, all-new armor with weathering effects, a new blaster rifle, detailed utility belt with pouch and other accessories, plus a specially designed figure stand.
You can pre-order the figure here. As expected, it’s not exactly cheap, but the figure is high-quality, and if you’re a collector with a love of Star Wars, you’re definitely going to want to have it on your shelf!
