With many fans just now receiving the first Sandtrooper, Sideshow has launched pre orders for the Sandtrooper Squad leader.
The sandtrooper is a desert terrain stormtrooper. Sandtroopers are largely identical to standard stormtroopers except they have additional training in specialized areas. Their armor consists of an 18-piece anti-blaster cocoon shell with heat-reflective coating worn over a temperature-control body glove. The sandtrooper helmet features automatic polarized lenses, a built-in comlink and breathing filters. These stormtroopers are specifically designed for high temperature environments. Instead of depending on machinery that may not function in hostile environments, sandtroopers make use of local creatures for transportation.
This item will compliment any Sideshow Star Wars collection and I advise collectors to jump on this now. So far no exclusive version has been listed and the ship date is 1st quarter of 2010. To place your order click here.
