Death Troopers Busts Stalk Your Shelves

Soon, the Sith will be muttering "Something..Something...BRAAAAAAINS!!" Joe Schreiber's Death Troopers proposed the question "What if a cadre of Stormtroopers became shambling, flesh eating Zombies out to chew up what was left of the Empire?" Now, Gentle Giant commemorates a truly awesome idea (yes, better that robot ninja monkeys) with something they do better than most everyone on the planet. BUSTS!!

The legions of the undead are here. Nothing can prepare the galaxy for what lies waiting aboard a seemingly abandoned, derelict Star Destroyer. Amidst its vast creaking emptiness the unknown is lurking and the dead are slowly rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry. This elite Stormtrooper is infected with more than just the dark side.

At 6.5 inches this remarkably horrifying 1/6th scale mini-bust is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone, featuring detachable armor plates revealing the morbid decay of the Imperial walking dead. Accurately sculpted with detailed and distressed armor, then hand painted to Gentle Giant’s always exacting specifications. This fine collectible is a limited edition of 2,500. Each piece is individually numbered with matching certificate of authenticity and includes a complete Paperback edition of Joe Schreiber’s Star Wars horror novel : Death Troopers.

There are apparently TWO versions of this bad boy. The second is the Deluxe Death Trooper Mini Bust featuring detachable armor plates revealing the morbid decay of the Imperial walking dead, including the fiendish face behind the mask! A blaster and 3 additional Interchangeable arms are included. Allowing for dozens of customizable variations, for an army of The Empire’s undead. Pre-orders are starting to pop up now with delivery set for October.
