A new repaint of the Star Wars 1/6 Scale Stormtrooper Figure has been revealed by Hot Toys. They are taking the iconic armored Trooper and adding in a blue porcelain pattern deco. It’s not April 1st, I assure you. Outside of the head scratching deco, the Stormtrooper figure will come with the standard accessories. Those include interchangeable hands, two blasters and a figure stand. Here’s the explanation from Hot Toys:
As the symbol of the Empire’s sweeping military might, the Stormtroopers have a presence in all but every corner of the galaxy. As a special edition release, Hot Toys re-imagines the iconic white battle armor in an original design variation representing different cultures and civilizations.
This very special Star Wars collectible: a 1/6th scale Stormtrooper figure’s pattern is inspired by the highly regarded blue-and-white porcelain motif that originated centuries ago in China!
Expertly crafted based on the classic Stormtrooper armor, this figure boldly adopts the unique blue-and-white porcelain floral patterns with an Imperial twist on the masked soldier’s helmet and armor, blasters, interchangeable hands, and a specially designed figure stand!
