The definition of a Stormtrooper Commander according to Wookieepedia.com:

Stormtrooper commanders were commanders who led Imperial stormtroopers into battle. They were given an advanced ARC training which gave them sharper minds compared to the average stormtrooper, and were still as loyal.











I received my StarWarsShop.com Exclusive Stormtrooper Commander Mini-Bust a few weeks ago and finally had a chance to open it up, look it over and take some photos. For those new to the collecting game, Gentle Giant used the same mold from the 2004 released Deluxe Stormtrooper Mini-Bust. Obvious changes would be the special The Force Unleashed video game paint job and the static pose with the blaster raised in the air unlike the Deluxe Stormtrooper that came with several options for arm and weapon positions. The bust has a weathered look to it as it appeared in the game. This is the first of several The Force Unleashed Mini-Busts to be done from the hugely popular video game that was released in September of 2008.

One other thing worth mentioning....the box incorrectly states that the edition size is 2100 while the actual run is 2500 pieces.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
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.
