EXCLUSIVE Sandtroopers-Sergeant & Corporal + Bonus
« on: January 04, 2005, 07:25:35 AM »
StarWarsShop delivers another rare exclusive for U.S. collectors! The Kotobukiya Sandtrooper Corporal vinyl statue is limited to 500 units, and has a StarWarsShop.com exclusive sticker on the product packaging indicating this edition size and exclusivity. In Japan, the corporal will be available through Toys R Us with a limited run of 1,000, featuring a Toys R Us sticker on packaging.

Coming this spring, this statue is one of three desert stormtrooper vinyl figure kits from Kotobukiya in Japan. Distinguishing these troopers are the color-coded rank pauldrons that they wear over their shoulders, one with the orange, pauldron, one with the white pauldron, and the corporal sandtrooper featured here with the black pauldron.

Collectors who get all three sandtroopers can swap weaponry and body parts from each trooper, increasing the number of poses available for the figure.

They sure got the colours screwed up.  To my knowledge, a black pauldron means they are a new recruit.  I don't see how you confuse a corporal with a green horn.


Are these things only available to the U.S.?  I am pretty interested in getting one.

From the Official Site...

Sandtroopers wear colored pauldrons as a designation of rank. A stormtrooper sergeant's pauldron is white while an enlisted stormtrooper's pauldron is all black. Squad leaders, who lead units of seven troopers, wear orange shoulder pauldrons.

WOW!  Look what's been added today, looks like we now have a squad leader:



The sandtrooper is a desert terrain stormtrooper equipped with modified armor and gear to better withstand missions in harsh, arid locales like Tatooine. While their armor is superficially similar to that of the standard stormtrooper, advanced cooling systems in both their helmets and suits offer these troopers protection from the relentless heat.

The stormtrooper detachment dispatched by Lord Darth Vader to investigate a crashed escape pod on Tatooine just prior to the Battle of Yavin consisted of sandtroopers. They had heavy weapons, survival gear, and shoulder pauldrons denoting rank.

The 11" Sandtrooper Squad Leader vinyl figure is packed in a beautifully designed window box.

That squad leader is the shizzle my nizzle!   :o  I am really hoping to get one of these for my collection.  Even though my birthday is four months away, I'm still going to ask for this one I think.   ;D
