    Points of Interest:
  • This figure of R5-D4 was originally planned to be an "Attack R2-D2" figure, but was changed to this droid instead.
  • R5-D4's bad motivator is the result of conflicting stories. Some tales claim R2-D2 sabotaged the droid, others claim that R5-D4 intentionally blew his own motivator, and another tale claims that R5-D4 is actualy a Jedi named "Skippy."

    Poll
    How would you feel about Gentle Giant Ltd. producing a Dark Trooper Mini Bust from the 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces video game? It could be a single Dark Trooper or perhaps a 3-pack showcasing the various Phases of production.
    Shut up and take my money!
    I'm a completist, so I'm in regardless.
    I could be convinced to purchase this if it wasn't too difficult to obtain.
    Never played the game and don't know anything about the character, so not a likely purchase for me.
    No interest.
