SL: Sandtrooper

The Empire has its forces spread wide across the Galaxy, to maintain the tight Imperial Fist around its coloniesWorlds.

Which each different Worlds having its own clement, Imperial forces have to adapt their gear, armor and equipment to better suit the environment around them.

An here we have a Sandtrooper Figure which is an Imperial Stormtrooper equipped with modified armor & equipment to withstand the harsh environments of desert planets like Tatooine.

A Sandtroopers is always equipped with a Pauldron & Survival Pack. The Pauldron would show the rank of a trooper, Full Black Pauldron are standard/corporal trooper, white are Sargent and orange would stand for Squad Leader.

Okay now you know the brief details about of a Sandtrooper, lets move on to the figure!

This Sandtrooper is part of the first 09 new packaging Saga legends wave to arrives at the local toy stores!

Here's a look at the New 09 SL Packaging:

Can't understand why they use a "Sargent" from the Evolution set on a standard sandtrooper packaging? is it that hard to re-shoot a new picture?

The description should be more about The Sandtrooper and not that they are "DUMB" and are easily fooled by Jedi Mind Tricks.

Very nice illustration of the helmet.


Weapons and Accessories:
  • Corporal Shoulder Pauldron
  • BlashTech E-11 Blaster Pistol
  • Survival Backpack (removable)
  • Thermal Detonator (removable)
  • Vibro Lance
  • Working blaster holster

  • Has a very nice steel like finishing! its not really reflected here but you got to see it!

    I don't know why, but love this picture...

    My Comments:

    - Love this clean version

    - Great that the thermal detonator is removable.

    - Steel like finishing on the Vibro lance is a nice touch.

    - Packed with accessories.

    My dislike on this figure is the packaging details:

    - Visual of sandtrooper: why show a Sargent & weathered Sandtrooper, when your selling a clean corporal sandtrooper? hello? consistency please!

    - Description of the figure: why have copy to say that sandtroopers are dumb and can be easily fooled by Jedi mind tricks!?! Should it be more about:

    " Sand troopers, had additional training in specialized areas and advanced cooling systems in both their helmets and suits that offered them protection from the relentless heat" doesn't this sound better and makes you want buy this Sandtrooper?????

    My Verdict

    If you like your Sandtroopers clean and white, then this figure would be great for your collection! it comes with a whole lot of accessories, that are removable or working! my facial sculpt of this figure was spot on! and had no overlapping of paint.

    it Couldn't get any better then this!

    The 09 packaging is nice and compact, really liking it! however the figure visuals & description was a real spoiler for me.

    Get One Today! before they are all dried up!

    Rating: 7/10 (figure visuals & description dropped the points)
