...some call me a gangster of love.
This here is Maurice...er..I mean a Spacetrooper from the Star Wars Legacy Collection. What makes this guy a "Spacetrooper" is the jet pack, the rebreather tube, and the big f'in hand cannon. Remove all that jazz and you have...
...a regular Stormtrooper!
Slap it all back on and you have a Spacetrooper. Keen.
From the back of the packaging:
"Specialized stormtroopers, dubbed "spacetroopers," are deployed to Zero-G environments, such as areas outside the Death Star's artificially generated atmosphere. They wear specially designed suits that have sealed armor and are equipped with rebreather packs."
If anything makes a Stormtrooper awesomer than average, it's a jet pack.
This Spacetrooper also has a removable helmet. And he looks nothing like Jango Fett.
I found this guy on the clearance aisle at K-Mart, and got him for $2.80. Getting a new "classic" Stormtrooper is pretty cool; getting one with a special non-canon gimmick is fun too - (EDIT: He is canon - according to Chunky B: "A pair of them were in a new hope, even before the special edition days. Plus the head sculpt is a nod to the man who wore one of the Spacetrooper suits in that scene...Joe Johnston.")
I haven't bought a new Star Wars figure in some time. But getting one for $2.80 felt like old times, and that made finding this guy so much sweeter.
