What It Is
The Star Wars Black Series, #03 Sandtrooper is part of Hasbro's 6-inch Black Series collection of action figures. It is based on the Sandtrooper character in Star Wars: Episode 4, A New Hope from 1977.
Why It’s Fun
This is the trooper in the movie that is part of one of the most quoted scenes in Star Wars history – "These are not the Droids you are looking for". This is the trooper that was looking for the droids and fooled by a Ben Kenobi's Jedi mind trick.
The figure has a lot of articulation, some nice details and a great paint job that makes him look as if he has been searching the desert for R2 and C3P0. He also has a lot of highly detailed accessories including a desert survival backpack, a standard blaster, heavy blaster rifle and long-range blaster rifle.
Who It’s For
Star Wars fans and collectors, ages four and up.
