Hot Toys Brings the Dark Side with their Sixth Scale Sith Trooper figure

It was always inevitable that we’d be able to get our grubby, Nerf herder paws on the new Hot Toys Star Wars: Sith Trooper figure. 

Now, when I say “we”, I’m referring to those like myself who weren’t lucky enough to attend the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. The sixth scale Sith Trooper, clad in striking red and black armor, saw an Advance Release edition that attendees of the convention were able to purchase then and there. 

Tangled up with feelings of envy and suffering was a fear that, possibly, they wouldn’t release a regular version to the public. What would I do? Now, I’m well aware that two of the three emotions listed will lead to the Dark Side so, I held onto hope and logic, which brings us to today. Phew!

This wide release of the newest take on the Star Wars franchise’s favorite cannon fodder, the Stormtrooper, seems to be identical to what we saw at SDCC. The armor is redesigned to be both unique in the Trooper variations while immediately recognizable. 

A nice base, some alternate hands, and two blaster rifles are included, but that glossy crimson paint job is what steals the show. The stark contrast of the red we now see against the white we’ve come to expect is pretty powerful.

As a fan, I cannot wait to discover what the heck these Troopers have to do with the Sith or the Empire, and as a collector I am eager to get this gorgeous figure in hand. Now to wait patiently for its, and the Rise of Skywalker’s, release.

The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker -1/6th scale Sith Trooper Collectible Figure is available now for pre-order.
