Hot Toys has unveiled a limited edition Stormtrooper figure that will likely never be seen on the big screen. Judging by the below description, it seems this may be the first of many cultural design variants coming in the future. This Porcelain Pattern version is an homage to the blue and white porcelain design that became widely used in China during the 14th century and has remained popular ever since. It came about when the cobalt blue pigment became available from Persia.
As the symbol of the Empire’s sweeping military might, the Stormtroopers have a presence in all but every corner of the galaxy. As a special edition release, Hot Toys re-imagines the iconic white battle armor in an original design variation representing different cultures and civilizations.
This very special Star Wars collectible: a 1/6th scale Stormtrooper figure’s pattern is inspired by the highly regarded blue-and-white porcelain motif that originated centuries ago in China!
Expertly crafted based on the classic Stormtrooper armor, this figure boldly adopts the unique blue-and-white porcelain floral patterns with an Imperial twist on the masked soldier’s helmet and armor, blasters, interchangeable hands, and a specially designed figure stand!
Available as a limited edition item in selected markets only, this stylish and extraordinary interpretation of the Stormtrooper figure is a unique collectible for sophisticated fans and collectors.
