There's a new Droid Starfighter in town, and from the looks of it, he's a nasty bugger. I won’t go into too much detail where this fighter is concerned, gotta save somethin' for the movie, but I am rather impressed with how the toy turned out. The Tri-Fighter offers an intriguing design, nice deco, a trio of firing projectiles, and a few interesting little play pals. If I had one complaint it would be the fact that aside from looking cool, the toy really doesn’t do all that much. The center pod rotates and acts as storage for the buzzers, there are two ‘manually’ operated bombs, and of course the missiles, but that’s pretty much the extent of it. Though I’m not sure where it would have gone, maybe in one of the three fins or in the engine pods, a sound chip could have added a little more play value to the table.

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.
