Ophiuchus: Dawn of The Humanoids 1/6th CPL Joel Hagan 12" Figure (Death Squad Version)

Joel was known to the police force as the 1st rookie to bring down a band of armed savages. A total of 17 savages were killed. The remaining 5 were wounded and captured. In the process, Joel was also critically injured while trying to save an innocent civilian from a grenade explosion. Unfortunately, the explosion killed the civilian and the shrapnel blasted through both of his arms. The arms injury were so critically severe at that time that no medical expertise was able to save it. As the result, Joelโ€™s arms have to be amputated to prevent dangerous virus infection that would have been life threatening.

Review Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars 1/6 scale Sandtrooper: Squad Leader 12-inch figure

May the 4th be with you ๐Ÿ™‚

May 4 is considered Star Wars Day by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise’s films series, books and culture. The date was chosen as “May the 4th” due to its sounding similar to the series’ phrase “May the Force be with you” in which fans commonly say “May the fourth be with you”.

So it’s only appropriate that I should post something about Star Wars on Star Wars Day, right?

I decided to post an entry / review of the Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars 1/6 scale Sandtrooper: Squad Leader 12-inch figure. This figure was released some time ago and has since sold out and is no longer available from Sideshow Collectibles website. It’s a very nice figure except for the crappy body. Since getting this Sideshow Star Wars Sandtrooper: Squad Leader figure, I’ve never taken it out of the box to take pictures until now.

Box packaging is pretty standard for all Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars sixth scale figures. The 12-inch figure and 1/6 scale accessories are kept neatly packed inside trays which are secured safely inside the box. The box itself is held together by magnets (hidden) and is rather cool. Makes you not want to throw the boxes away even after removing the figure from the box.
The box reveal with lots of text and backstory printed on the inside flaps.
The basic figure (essentially a Star Wars Stormtrooper 12-inch figure with lots of weathering to make him look all dirty and “used”) plus some of his 1/6 scale accessories (including the 12-inch figure display stand) are packed in the main tray. The orange shoulder pauldron meant this is a Squad Leader who led a unit of seven troopers.
The accessories tray contains his weapons: T-21 Light Repeating Blaster, E-11 Carbine blaster, Detailed Backpack with its side attachments. There was no instruction manual / sheet to tell you how to assemble the loose parts onto the trooper or how to put on the backpack.
The Empire encompassed thousands of worlds, with countless climate and terrain challenges. Their stormtrooper ranks reflected this through specialized units trained and equipped to operate in specific environments. The sandtrooper is a desert terrain stormtrooper. Sandtroopers are largely identical to standard stormtroopers except they have additional training in specialized areas. Their armor consists of an 18-piece anti-blaster cocoon shell with heat-reflective coating worn over a temperature-control body glove. The sandtrooper helmet features automatic polarized lenses, a built-in comlink and breathing filters. These stormtroopers are specifically designed for high temperature environments. Instead of depending on machinery that may not function in hostile environments, sandtroopers make use of local creatures for transportation. Examples of such creatures: The Dewback (pictures HERE and HERE)
The stormtrooper detachment dispatched by Lord Darth Vader to investigate a crashed escape pod on Tatooine just prior to the Battle of Yavin consisted of sandtroopers. They had heavy weapons, survival gear, and shoulder pauldrons denoting rank.
The Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Sandtrooper: Squad Leader Sixth Scale Figure specially features: Fully articulated male body (armored body) with 30+ points of articulation. Fully detailed Sandtrooper armor set, featuring helmet faceplate, left shin armor, abdomen armor, and pauldron with orange rank designation. Black Full Bodysuit, Shoulder Pouches, Belt Pouches, T-21 Light Repeating Blaster, Detailed Backpack, E-11 Carbine blaster, 12-inch Figure Display Base with Star Wars Logo
Unlike the stormtroopers who were all armed with the E-11 Carbine blaster, sandtroopers had more variety in terms of weapons. This Sandtrooper: Squad Leader (denoted by the orange shoulder pauldron) carries the T-21 Repeating Blaster.
Close-up picture of the T-21 light repeating blaster. The T-21 light repeating blaster was a standard-issue, rapid-fire weapon produced by BlasTech Industries. The T-21 was the heaviest and one of the most powerful standard-issue weapon that could be carried by a single soldier. The sheer power of its bolts could cut through personal armor and break down personal energy shields, even penetrate the armored plating on many light combat vehicles. (source: wookieepedia)
A First World War-era Lewis machine gun provided the basis for the T-21. The Lewis gun was the standard light machine gun of British and Commonwealth forces during World War I. It was fed by a drum magazine that was placed horizontally on top of the gun’s receiver. To produce the T-21 prop, the drum magazine was removed and minor cosmetic alterations were made.

Review II: Star Wars Sandtrooper: Squad Leader Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

continued from previous post

Besides the T-21 light repeating blaster, the Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars 1/6 scale Sandtrooper: Squad Leader 12-inch figure is also equipped with the standard-issue weapon for all Imperial Stormtroopers, the E-11 Carbine blaster. The BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle was a blaster rifle used during the time of the Galactic Republic, and manufactured by BlasTech Industries during the Galactic Civil War. It was the standard blaster rifle of the Imperial stormtroopers. A powerful, light and compact weapon, the E-11 was used widely through the galaxy.

The Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Sandtrooper: Squad Leader Sixth Scale Figure came with the following: Fully articulated male body (armored body) with 30+ points of articulation. Fully detailed Sandtrooper armor set, featuring helmet faceplate, left shin armor, abdomen armor, and pauldron with orange rank designation. Black Full Bodysuit, Shoulder Pouches, Belt Pouches, T-21 Light Repeating Blaster, Detailed Backpack, E-11 Carbine blaster, 12-inch Figure Display Base with Star Wars Logo

The Sideshow Collectibles fully articulated male body is crap: the joints are too loose and the 12-inch figure can hardly stand on its own without falling over. A figure stand is required for displaying the figure otherwise it will fall over and if it’s being displayed with other 12-inch figures, be prepared for the dominoes effect. Worse if the figures are not displayed inside a glass shelf but left out in the open. Things are going to come tumbling down and it might just get messy really fast. That is a surety!
The sandtrooper armor is not white like the stormtrooper’s because they are supposed to be weather bitten and terrain tested. One of the most revolutionary things about Star Wars when it came out was, that the things in the movies did look like they were used. Everything was dirty, sooty and worn-out. Before Star Wars it was more common for science-fiction-movies to look clean and futuristic. This dirty worn-out look, that George Lucas called a โ€œused universeโ€, heavily supports the believability of the Star Wars universe.
The classic Imperial stormtrooper, with its simple yet elegant white armor, ominous and anonymous helmet / mask, gave the Galactic Empire its grand army. Sandtroopers were the first variant on the standard stormtrooper design, showing up early in “Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode IV)” during Darth Vader’s quest for R2-D2 and C-3PO on Tatooine (Giving rise to the famous saying “These aren’t the droids you are looking for”). The Sandtrooper looked very much like the stormtrooper, except that their armor has “advanced cooling systems” โ€“ the SD-48 Survival Pack โ€“ for the harsh desert heat. They also wear shoulder pauldrons that denote rank and best of all, they get to ride around on giant lizards called dewbacks (see my posts on dewbacks HERE and HERE).
Close-up pictures of the Star Wars Sandtrooper: Squad Leader Sixth Scale Figure. I really like the timeless design (the movie came out in May 1977 – that’s 37 years ago) and it doesn’t ever seem to look outdated.
Another closer look at the T-21 light repeating blaster which was a standard-issue, rapid-fire weapon. It was built from the WWI Lewis light machine gun, with the drum magazine removed and minor cosmetic alterations made.
The E-11 blaster rifle props used in ANH and ESB were built from a British-made Sterling L2A3 sub-machine guns. To give the actors something to react to and to give rotoscoping artists timing reference when animating blaster bolts, the E-11 rifle props in the original trilogy โ€” which were still fully operational firearms โ€” were loaded with blank cartridges that were then fired to provide a practical effect. Because of this, expended 9mm casings can be seen ejecting from the props in several scenes in A New Hope, particularly during the assault on the Death Star’s detention level. This can also be seen briefly in a closeup of Lando firing one in The Empire Strikes Back.
