    Comments: Feared throughout the galaxy, stormtroopers are elite shock troops deployed in support of both ground forces and the Imperial fleet. Stormtroopers are unquestionably loyal to the Empire, and their unshakable military discipline has led to speculation that they may be the result of accelerated Imperial cloning experiments, although this has never been confirmed.

    The armored spacesuits worn by standard stormtroopers give them the ability to operate in almost any environment and offer limited protection from blaster fire. The white outer shell consists of 18 snap together pieces which form an anti-blaster cocoon, and includes a self-contained power source. Underneath this armor is a black, two piece temperature controlled body-glove. The protective helmets feature polarized lenses and communication units that allow troopers to maintain communication with each other and with their commanders. Also outfitted to the armor is a compartmentalized utility belt, which houses a spare comlink, rations and batteries, plus specialized survival equipment. Standard issue weapons include hand blasters and blaster cannons, grenades, mini proton torpedoes and laser cutting devices - easily the most fearsome personal arsenal in all the Empire.

    The Imperial shock troops are unfalteringly loyal to Emperor Palpatine and his wishes. These elite corps are deployed to neutralize resistance to the Empire and placed aboard Imperial vessels to ensure lower officers stay true to the Emperor's wishes.

    Points of Interest:

  • The Stormtrooper had a change on his legs. The feet were originally flat, with the logo and date on the rear thighs of the armor. This was later changed so the thighs were blank, and the feet had the logo and date on them. Combinations of these two leg styles are known to exist.

    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
