STAR WARS SANDTROOPER SQUAD LEADER TWO PACK ARTFX+ STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues bring you all of the quality and detailing that you expect from an ARTFX release in a great smaller scale perfect for collecting! One of the highlights of the line is the inclusion great army builders (in addition to famous heroes and villains) like the previously released Stormtroopers. Up next is the character chosen as part of a fan poll at Star Wars Celebration VI in a double dose of the specialized Imperial trooper designed for maneuvers in desert conditions, the SANDTROOPER SQUAD LEADER TWO PACK!

First seen in Star Wars Episode IV searching Tatooine for a pair of droids, Sandtroopers use modified Stormtrooper armor and unique weaponry, and as with all soldiers are more effective in greater numbers. The Sandtrooper ARTFX+ Statues replicate their onscreen counterparts perfectly, with intricately sculpted armor that shows off all of the details you know from the film. Notably, they wear the iconic shoulder pauldrons and convoluted backpacks full of desert equipment. Similarly, due to the harsh conditions they operate in the Sandtroopers feature armor scoured and stained brown, further differentiating them from their standard Imperial brothers. In this pack you’ll get enough parts to build two Sandtroopers Squad Leaders with all of their equipment and weaponry, and bonus parts let you assemble and display them in various iconic poses (on the lookout with macrobinoculars, pointing at targets, or wielding either T-21 or RT-97C)! Like all other ARTFX+ Statues the Sandtroopers also have magnets in their feet for display on their included bases.

ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. The Sandtrooper Squad Leaders stand 7 inches tall (1/10th scale) and are perfect companion for the Sandtrooper Sergeant (sold separately)!

Available JANUARY 2014.

Like the men under his command the Sergeant wears specially modified Stormtrooper armor that is captured in a highly detailed sculpt with a great dirty and weathered paint job! Everything is screen accurate even down to the intricacies of the trooper’s unique backpack.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
