  • Points of Interest:
  • Moving the Dewback's tail back and forth caused the mouth to open and close.

  • The backpack includes a small hole on the side so the rifle can be connected to it for storage while riding the Dewback.

  • The grey pauldron signifies this trooper's rank as part of the mounted patrol in the Imperial army.

  • Other Sandtrooper figures were released as a carded figure and with the Cantina 3-D Display Diorama.

  • The "dirty" paint on the armor was originally overdprayed so that it ended up looking more orange than dirty. This was soon changed to a "cleaner" look with less dirt.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
