Both toy collectors and Star Wars fans alike have been waiting for an official announcement concerning this amazing collaboration between Super7 and Lucasfilm Ltd. for a very long time, and yesterday that announcement was finally released! Utilizing the same techniques implemented by Japanese toy manufacturers in the 1970s, the Super Shogun Stormtrooper is constructed from durable, blow-molded polyethylene with a painted vinyl helmet.
The Star Wars Stormtrooper Super Shogun stands a whopping 24 inches tall and includes all of the features that you expect from an authentic Jumbo: free rotating wheels on the bottom of his feet, and a spring-loaded Rocket Punch firing fist! The figure is articulated at the neck and shoulders, and includes a removable, highly-detailed BlasTech E-11 laser blaster. The blaster even features a posable stock that unfolds from below the barrel. Collectors of both Japanese and Star Wars memorabilia are sure to be impressed with the care taken to fuse the disparate concepts into a new unique entity.
Packaged in an illustrated gift box with iconic graphics from both franchises, each Stormtrooper is individually serial numbered as part of this one time limited edition production run. As a special bonus, metallic foil stickers are included for you to customize the torso with the character name in English or in Japanese. The 24” Super7 x Star Wars Super Shogun Stormtrooper will retail for $300 each and will go be available through www.starwars.super7store.com soon, a new dedicated mini-website launched in celebration of this figure’s impending release.
