Hot Toys Star Wars Shocktrooper Full Reveal

Originally a Japanese convention exclusive that you had to order bundled in with a PS4 and  a copy of Star Wars Battlefront, Hot Toys are now releasing the Star Wars Battlefront Shocktrooper to retailers. 

The distinctive red and white Shocktrooper armour debuted in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith as Emperor Palpatine's personal Clonetrooper soldiers and have returned in the video game Star Wars: Battlefront but this time as Stormtroopers. The figure features the distinctive Stormtrooper armour from the original trilogy with the red patterning over it and the Sandtrooper style backpack. 

Hot Toy's details for the figure are:
