JAKKS reveals SDCC Star Wars Shadow Storm Trooper figure

June 20th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

With San Diego Comic-Con 2014 just over a month away, manufacturers have started to announce their con-exclusive releases for this year’s show. Thanks to THR, we’ve got our first look at the JAKKS Pacific’s 31” Star Wars Shadow Storm Trooper.

John Blaney, Executive Vice President, Marketing JAKKS Pacific, told THR:

“This incredible figure was a collaboration of the JAKKS team and their design expertise, as well as the classic creations of Lucasfilm. The sculpt of the Shadow Trooper remains true to character featuring distinguishing all-black armor and an imperial blaster rifle. We have put a lot of creativity and enthusiasm into this limited-edition line and with only 500 figures made, it is sure to be a fan favorite.”

Produced in association with Lucasfilm, each of the 500 figures will be individually marked to record when it was produced. Standing 31 inches tall, the JAKKS Shadow Storm Trooper has 7 points of articulation and carries an imperial blaster. The figure will be only be available at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, with a retail price of $50.00.

SDCC 2014 runs from July 24th through July 27th at the San Diego Convention Center.
