Hobby manufacturing company, Kotobukiya (Tokyo, Japan), will release an ARTFX PURGE TROOPER™ from Obi-Wan Kenobi™ in May 2023 ARTFX PURGE TROOPER™
Set 10 years after the dramatic turn of events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith™ the story of Obi-Wan™ continues in the Star Wars™ live-action series Obi-Wan Kenobi™ on Disney+.
Purge Troopers™, an elite variant of the standard Stormtrooper™, served the Inquisitors™ in their hunt for the last Jedi™ during the early days of the Galactic Empire. Fully enveloped in black armor, with a shoulder pauldron and a skirt-like kama, these troopers were formidable opponents, especially when armed with various weaponry, such as an E-11D blaster carbine™.
Powerfully rendered in a combat-ready stance, this 1/7 scale ARTFX Purge Trooper is an imposing sight to behold from the interlocking black plates of armor to the piercing red found in the visor. Every exacting detail of this sculpt has been referenced directly from the Lucasfilm production to achieve an authentic and screen-accurate recreation.
Expand the ranks of Galactic Empire with the ARTFX Purge Trooper and have them face off with the upcoming ARTFX Obi-Wan Kenobi™!
