Sideshow "Store Exclusive" Sandtrooper (Corporal: Tatooine)

I don't know what so special about this figure as the label on the front packaging says "Sideshow Store Exclusive".

Here are the back view and side view of the packaging with images of the armoured figure.

The packaging has magnetic closures at the side panel which work the same way as the previous releases.

Same kind of paint work and weathering done on the body armour.

Besides stormtrooper blaster, the DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle is the weapon comes with the figure.

The figure has good articulation but loose joints. Thus, the display stand is necessary for certain poses.

The accessories given are extra set of hands, mini pouch, shoulder pouches and black shoulder pauldron. They work pretty well.

The backpack is well produced and the design is slightly different when comparing the earlier releases (read my posts on Squad Leader Sandtrooper here and Sergeant Sandtrooper here). Overall, I am pleased with the price tag I got for this figure. I am sure the Corporal Sandtrooper will look nice when posing him side by side with other Sandtroopers on the shelves.

Awesome!!! where can I get this????

Asrul, the dirty effect on the body armour is similar to the two sandtroopers released previously. I don't think there are cheap 12inch Darth Vaders in the market now except to the one in Kenner version or Hasbro version.

You may try the Sideshow store since they stated it's store exclusive or official Star Wars shop. I bought it from David at Invasions Toys and Collectibles.

You should really season this toy with sand for more realistic effect. :P

Leon, I still prefer the figure to be in its original version although the weathering is not realistic :P

A realistic weathering to the trooper and I like the mud stain on the chest. You are right the stormytroopers look awesome when they all come together.

Yes Dennis, they look nice when standing together :P
