The Spacetrooper was one of those briefly seen ‘characters’ in the saga, but was enough of a curiosity for us as kids that we thought it was cool. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Spacetrooper, there are a couple of them on the surface of the Death Star as the Millennium Falcon is drawn into the docking bay via a tractor beam. They merely stand there and point at it and possibly do some other stuff that might be part of their daily routine.
The body is pretty much the standard Stormtrooper body. The head is NOT a clone head, but rather a handsome brown-haired guy with a cowl over his head. The rifle is rather chunky and has a little handle on the top of it. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AS YOU MAY LOSE THIS PIECE WHILST REMOVING SAID TROOPER FROM HIS PACKAGE! He also comes with the standard blaster and holster on the belt. The helmet appears to be the same helmet as all recent Stormtroopers are packed with, until you notice that there is a little hole on the underside of it at the front. This is where the rebreather tube connects into it. The backpack/jetpack is really nice and, for once, they designed it so there are no gaping slots on the trooper’s back! VERY nice indeed! The pack fits and locks over the square bit on the trooper’s back.
While it’s not the most excitingly new figure, it does deliver the goods well. It could be used as the Spacetrooper or for an army builder of standard Stormtroopers. It’s designed that well.
Includes head and middle leg for Astromech droid. This edition was for R5-A2.
I'd rate this an 8.0 out of 10.
