View Full Version : Quick question about the SW Fan Club Shadow Trooper (Black Hole Stormtrooper) sculpt

Is there a plain, white Stormtrooper counterpart that uses the same sculpt/mold as the SW Fan Club Exclusive black Shadow Stormtrooper? I know the Sandtrooper in the Saga collection uses the same mold, but it's well...sandy :p

I've noticed the plain white Stormtrooper in the Collector's Tin sets but is that the same mold as the black Shadow Stormtrooper?

Please let me know if there is a plain white Stormtrooper out or maybe even one scheduled soon that uses the black Shadow Stormtrooper mold- I have a this "black and white" thing going and I'd like to find a plain white Stormy with the same mold as the Black Shadow Stormy to display together.

Thanks! :)

I may be mistaken but I believe the Blackhole trooper is just a VOTC stormtrooper painted black. It could be the evolutions Sandtrooper sculpt though. Either way it should be pretty close but that all depends on how finicky you are. The figure in the tin is a Sandtrooper not a Stormtrooper.

It's definitely a straight repaint of the VOTC Stormtrooper, not the Evolutions Sandtrooper (he doesn't have mid-torso articulation). The new TSC Sandtrooper uses the VOTC Stormie body but remolded the belt and back to accomodate the backpack.

Wait, why exactly did you start this topic with "Quick question"? :p

Ok, so it wasn't quick BUT I got my answer.

Now to hunt down a VOTC Stormy :p

Thanks folks!

To understand El Chuxter's quip check out the Music forum.

Apparently, the copyright date on the figure's foot is 2005 instead of the VOTC Stormie's 2004, if that's the kind of thing that is going to change your mind... oy vey!

Nah- I want the whole Black/White thingy. I ordered one off of the Bay of E- $19.04 with shipping...I've paid more for less :( Stoked to get it and rip it open :p
