Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has stormed the consoles these last couple weeks, and as fans complete the game, they will turn to their collections and want to add the characters to their shelves. Hasbro has several figures on the pegs right now, including the Gamestop exclusive Black Series Purge Trooper. It was also available to those who bought the special edition of the game at the store as well. This one is drying up on the pegs fast, so let's take a look and see if it is one you want to pick up.
Same box as always for the Star Wars Black Series, but they are branching out with new colors and such. I have a feeling in 2020 we will see a box change.
This figure is like an awesome composite of a bunch of parts from other trooper figures. The paint aps are what sticks out the most, with the red and black combining to make this one standout in any collection. The pauldrin slung over the single shoulder is the same being used since the very first wave of Star Wars Black Series. also have to commend Hasbro on the paint aps again, my figure has no rub or bleed anywhere noticeable. That is also not to say that this figure is perfect. Hasbro has been making their hands a little too small for weapons as of late, and this one is no different. The skirt is warped, and the way it bunches up makes it look terrible and crinkled. And while I like the pauldrin, is restricts the movement of his right arm.
All that being said, this is a great addition to anyone's Star Wars collection. Menacing and merciless, I hope we get more versions of this trooper in the future, as they left a mark on Star Wars gamers quickly. If you can track one of these down, I highly recommend picking it up.
