      The OOM Security Droid, predecessor of the B1, are employed by the Trade Federation in great numbers for defense and detection. Distinguished from other OOM models by the red markings on their chest and abdomen, they often work in squads and are equipped with E-5 Blaster Rifles. Even though their programming is more complex and robust than the B1 model foot soldiers, this model is also plagued with the inability to hit the broad side of a bantha in combat.

      Now you can start building your Droid army with this film accurate, painted to perfection piece. This 1:6th scale mini-bust is a limited edition that comes with a matching, numbered certificate of authenticity and includes a built-in authentic movie sound effect!

      Inspired by the events from the Random House novel Death Troopers. Nothing can prepare the galaxy for what lies waiting aboard a seemingly abandoned, derelict Star Destroyer. Amidst its vast creaking emptiness the unknown is lurking and the dead are slowly rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

      This elite Stormtrooper is infected with more than just the dark side. This remarkably horrifying 1/6th scale statue is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone. Each piece is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Accurately sculpted with detailed and distressed armor, then hand painted to Gentle Giant's always exacting specifications, this unique limited edition piece is a must-have for Star Wars and horror fans alike!
