New ‘Mandalorian’ Inspired Dark Trooper Figure Coming From Hot Toys

by Gary Catig

The second season of The Mandalorian came to a thrilling and emotional conclusion last month. One of the characters introduced were Moff Gideon’s (Giancarlo Esposito) Dark Troopers; inspired by similar enemies in the Star Wars: Dark Forces video game. These menacing adversaries will now be made into high end action figures by Hot Toys.

The Dark Trooper will be the latest addition to the 1/6th scale Star Wars Television Masterpiece series. You better keep these guys away from any little Grogus in your collection.

The Dark Trooper 1:6 scale collectible figure will feature:

• An authentic and ultra-detailed likeness of the Dark Troopers as seen in Star Wars: The Mandalorian
• A finely crafted Dark Trooper helmet, with LED light-up function (battery operated)
• A newly developed exoskeleton body, with detailed mechanical design, and over 25 points of articulation (stands approx. 32.5cm tall)
• Realistic glossy black armor with metallic silver joints, and an LED light-up chest panel (battery operated)
• Multiple interchangeable hands for a variety of pose and display options
• A blaster rifle
• A figure stand with Star Wars logo and character nameplate

This newly announced Hot Toys collectible figure is currently available to pre-order from Sideshow, HERE.
