Estimated Availability: 2/8/2014
A sandtrooper, or desert trooper, was an Imperial stormtrooper equipped with a modified armor and equipment to withstand the harsh climates of desert planets like Tatooine. They were nearly identical to standard stormtroopers except they had additional training in specialized areas and advanced cooling systems in both their helmets and suits that offered them protection from the relentless heat. Visual differences in armor included a distinctive diamond-shaped left knee plate, non-ribbed chest and back plate connectors as well as reinforced abdominal plating. It was typical for non-commissioned officers (white and orange pauldrons) and above to remove the "drop boxes" on the waist.All desert sandtroopers carried E-11 blaster rifles, DLT-19 heavy blaster rifles, T-21 light repeating blasters, or RT-97C heavy blaster rifles, long-range comlinks, food, and water packs. Sandtroopers wore colored pauldrons as a designation of rank.Kotobukiya presents the Sandtrooper ARTFX+ two pack, allowing you tobuild an army to send out to the deserts in search of missing Droids.All new sculpt with subtle differences in armor details from the standard Imperial Stormtrooper armor, including new weapons.
