Hasbro’s newest Stormtrooper figure in their The Black Series 6″ collection gives fans something they didn’t expect – a Stormtrooper with battle damage and blast accessories. This Stormtrooper figure was released during one of the busiest years for The Original Trilogy figures being offered in The Black Series 6″ line-up, and comes in a similar packaging design as the Gamorrean Guard.

The Stormtrooper is a repaint from the 2013 version, and is given battle damaged markings on the figure that he received fighting the Resistance (most likely in Return of the Jedi’s Battle of Endor). The battle damage deco  is nicely done and the markings showcase dirt covering the upper chest of the armor, right shoulders, and top of the helmet. The figure is painted in a glossy white finish, and black deco where he is articulated in the joints, parts of the helmet such as the eyes, and the holster for his E-11 blaster. This particular sculpt continues to work well for the Stormtrooper, and this new deco is equally as impressive. His helmet has a great likeness, and is painted mostly in white, with black, grey and blue deco.

  

 

What makes this figure stand apart from every other Stormtrooper released in this line, is the inclusion of the explosion fire bursts that can be placed anywhere around the figure or figures. These fire bursts are made of plastic, are hollow on the inside, and features a realistic paint scheme that makes it look like explosions. and the red, orange and yellow look amazing.

 

The Stormtrooper also includes a E-11 blaster and a blast effect that connects to the blaster. The blast effect is painted similar to the fire bursts, and the effect works well and looks like he’s firing his blaster as seen in the movies.

 

A figure base is also included and has two pegs for his feet, a Star Wars logo, and has a Death Star floor detail on the other side to give you an option to display it like that. The pegs work best for one foot on and one foot off, as the pegs are on opposite sides. It does help the figure stand, incase you want to bend his leg to create a dynamic pose.

His articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, double-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles.

Overall, the Stormtrooper is a nice looking figure with an excellent paint job that gives refreshes him to something new, and the shiny white armor works well for the sculpt. The addition of the accessories is a nice touch, but it might not be for every Star Wars collector out there. Depending on how you display your figures, the explosion fire bursts work best in a diorama setting as opposed to a toy shelf, but the blast effect on the E-11 blaster works anywhere. Hasbro did a nice job on the figure regardless, and we are particularly fond of the Death Star backdrop in the packaging as used in the gallery below.
