The second figure in Tamashii Nations’ Star Wars Movie Realization line–where Star Wars characters are put through a Samurai-zer for lack of better description–the Stromtrooper is scheduled to go up for pre-order in Japan starting on January 6.
The Ashigaru Stormtrooper features Japanese inspired armor and stands 17 centimeters tall, putting it just under 7 inches. While the Movie Realization Stormtrooper won’t fit in scale with Tamashii Nations’ S.H. Figuarts Star Wars figures, it will compliment the recently released Movie Realization Darth Vader perfectly, especially when flanking the Samuraidaisho Darth Vader.
The Tamashii Movie Realization Stormtrooper includes a pair of switch-out hands, a blaster rifle and a Japanese sword with sheath. The figure is priced at ¥8,424 (about $70) with an anticipated May 2015 release date.
