“Up top! Get up there!”

Just ahead of the worldwide release, Sideshow’s newest FIRST LOOK video gives fans an up-close look at the new Star Wars Stormtrooper Squad Leader Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys.

When the Mandalorian™ brought the alien foundling Grogu™ to the planet of Tython™, they were tracked by Moff Gideon™ and a unit of remnant Stormtroopers were sent to capture the child. This highly accurate collectible figure is developed based on the Stormtrooper Commander’s appearance in the critically acclaimed live-action series. Additionally, the figure includes expertly constructed costuming and weapon accessories for creating strategic, dramatic displays in your collection. The Stormtrooper Squad Leader also features a detailed helmet and armor with weathering effects, the commander’s orange pauldron, a black undersuit, two styles of blaster rifles, and more!

Stormtrooper Squad Leader

Though they were initially thought to be defeated, the Empire maintained support and structure across the galaxy, as revealed in The Mandalorian™ series on Disney+. Small loyal legions of troopers operated in outposts, answering to Imperial officer Moff Gideon and their other troop commanders. Eventually, these battalions became known as “remnant Stormtroopers.” They then continued controlling territory and tracking down high-priority targets like the mysterious alien Grogu, also known as the Child.

Imperial rank is often signified by modifications to armor or insignias worn on uniforms. Regarding the Stormtrooper Squad Leader, their status is denoted by the orange shoulder pauldron that adds a unique touch of color to the otherwise iconic legions of white-armored soldiers. These commanders were also known to be even more strategic and effective in combat than the standard infantrymen they led into battle, and were not to be underestimated. Now brought to life in collectible format through Hot Toys’ Television Masterpiece Series, this high-ranking trooper is a must-have for fans collecting their own Imperial legions.
