Royal Guards of Emperor Palpatine. Let's check out these Sith Troopers after the break and see how they compare with the standard First Order troopers...
Height: 6 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, thigh swivels,
balljointed hips, mid-torso balljoint, lateral pectoral hinges, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows,
swivel/hinge wrists, balljointed neck, and a balljointed head.
Accessories: 2 blasters.
Non-Scalper Price: $18-$23 dollars
* The Sith Troopers aren't just First Order Stormtroopers painted red: They actually have a completely new sculpt that feature lots of new details all over the armor. The Sith Trooper armor is covered in anisotropic bands that apparently help to deflect the energy from blaster bolts. I really like the sensor mounted on the Sith Trooper's shoulder. It's just a cool little detail.
* The helmet is also really nice. I actually like these guys a lot more than the First Order Stormtroopers, which I've never been too fond off. I don't really care for the standard FO trooper helmets but these looks much, much better.
* The Sith troopers don't look too different from previous troopers from behind: They've got the standard details and explosive device on the back. The paintwork is really clean on this guy, though. While there isn't a ton of paint, what's here is very sharp and crisp.
* The Sith Trooper is one of the most well articulated figures in the line. Seriously, his range of motion is excellent. He's also really durable. These are well built figures.
* The arm articulation is incredible. The Sith Trooper has the pectoral hinges that many figure are starting to use. Couple this with the fact that his shoulder pads are rubbery and flexible and you have an amazing range of motion here.
* Like the standard First Order Troopers, the Sith Trooper can store a blaster on his hip via a small slot that allows the weapons to plug into it.
* The first blaster looks like a modified version of one of the First Order's F11s. It's got a great paint job.
* The second blaster is my favorite: It's the new ST-W48 blaster. This version is currently in rifle mode (apparently, in universe the stock can come off) and it looks really, really cool. I love this blaster!
