This is my second part of Action Figure Review of the recently released Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS389 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 1/6 scale Shoretrooper 12 inch collector figure. This Shoretrooper definitely has more articulation than the Hot Toys MMS267 "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" 1 / 6th Scale Stormtrooper 12 inch figure (see earlier HERE and HERE ) Due in part to the more flexible black suit worn under his armor, as well as a brown trousers instead of the skin-tight, inflexible glove worn by the storm bearers. Even the Hot Toys Star Wars Rogue One 1 / 6th Death Trooper (Specialist) Collectible figure was not spared the skin tight body glove problem – see the pictures HERE and HERE . The only Stormtrooper with amazing articulation is the Bandai 1/6. Scale Star Wars Stormtrooper Plastic Model Kit (see the pictures HERE and HERE )
This Shoretrooper captain who is identifiable by the markings on his armor might be hot toys releasing the other two ranks later as they already have the mold and it's just a matter of reviving the armor. They are famous for it. Regular Shoretroopers showed a sand-colored armor, a red ribbon around their right arm, and a white stripe around their left shoulder protector, while the Squad leaders were identified by a sand-blue stripe walking at the top of their breastplates and at the top of their shoulder guards. Squad leader also attached a kama to her belt. Located on the secret Imperial Security Complex on the tropical planet Scarif, the Shoretroopers patrolled the beaches and bunkers of the facility. Shoretroopers effectively operate as sergeants, allowing them to command small squads of regular storm troops.

Preferred. It is part of the specially designed Imperial Shoretrooper theme set that came with two designs. The other backdrop design has been in my previous action figure rating Post HIER
: A Star Wars Story 1 / 6. Scale Shoretrooper Collectible Figurine Outfit / Costume consists of: redesigned and finely crafted Shoretrooper armor with blue breastplate, brown colored trousers, useful belt with bag, armored boots. The brown bag is based on the WWII German MP40 ammunition bag. Unlike the Stormtroopers armed with two weapons, the SE-14C Blaster Pistol and the E-11 Blaster Rifle, the Shoretrooper is armed only with the two-story E-22 Blaster Rifle based on the Airsoft S & T Sterling L2A1 Barrel, a precision stick and an element M300A (EX 191) flashlight added.
There is no other accessory with this figure except some extra gloves.
Still as a Star Wars fan I can not imagine to have this figure in my collection. Hot Toys products are of the highest quality with amazing and very accurate details. They are basically mini film props since we can not have the 1: 1 scale real deal, this is the best thing we can afford. As long as hot toys continue, I will collect them, tear them and shoot them for my own pleasure 🙂 I enjoy photographing these figures, taking photos and sharing them on my toy blog.
