As reported yesterday, Hasbro have today revealed a new Black Series product in the form of an Imperial Artillery Stormtrooper from the second season of The Mandalorian, chapter 14 The Tragedy.
io9 has your first look at the latest figure to join the ranks of Hasbro’s Star Wars: The Black Series action figure toy line, the yellow-accented Artillery Stormtrooper from The Mandalorian. Specifically, this Stormtrooper appeared in season two’s Chapter 14, “The Tragedy”, in which Moff Gideon’s remnant forces assaulted Din Djarin, Boba Fett, and Fennec Shand on the planet Tython in order to capture poor little Grogu while he hung out trying to Force-link with any Jedi out there in the big wide galaxy that could train him.
Clocking in at around 6″ tall, the Imperial Artillery Stormtrooper will be exclusive to Amazon when it releases early next year. Clad in a special pauldron and marked with yellow paneling, the Artillery Trooper comes with the standard Stormtrooper blaster rifle like most of their other Black Series comrades, but also includes the small mortar launcher used by the troopers in The Mandalorian, as well as a grenade to load into the contraption. The Trooper’s extra backpack also includes a slot to place the grenade for extra storage as well as three more grenades, but… c’mon. It’s an Artillery Stormtrooper. You want to show them off unleashing their arsenal, right?
Pre-orders for the Star Wars: The Black Series Imperial Artillery Stormtrooper (retailing at the highly specific price of $26.49) will go live exclusively through Amazon later today, October 5, at 1:00pm ET. It’s due to release sometime in spring 2022, but given the state of international shipping right now, estimating just when the figure will arrive is about accurate as the Artillery Stormtrooper’s attempts to blow Boba and Fennec up were.
The reveal was exclusive to Gizmodo/io9 and will be up for preorder later today at 1pm ET/6pm BST — happy hunting!
