The Star Wars space saga has entertained the world since May 25, 1977, and I’m one of them. Since then it has morphed into a franchise that has become a living, breathing, Jedi entity. The release of The Force Awakens and Rogue One has not only quenched original followers intergalactic thirst, but it’s also hooked a new generation of Star War disciples.
My family loves Star Wars. We have all the movies to date, and each of us has our favorite characters. Some of my family members like to collect Star Wars merchandise, and Hasbro is always the first place to look. Hasbro is up to date on Star Wars collectibles, toys, and games and several new items hit the market just in time for Christmas.
The Imperial Interactech Stormtrooper action figure is from the movie Rogue One. They are a group of elite and loyal soldiers devoted to the Empire. This action figure is 11 ½ inches tall and comes with a realistic blaster rifle that snaps onto his hand and a super cool jetpack that snaps on his back. Press his belt to activate him up and shake to hear battle sounds. The stormtrooper speaks 65 + phrases and also makes Imperial sounds. His arms, legs, and head move full range.
There are several different modes, attack, and flight, plus a dual-mode that includes both. Each move will have its own set of phrases. His chest has an indicator light that will share which mode it’s in. The Stormtroopers are motion activated and change sounds and phrases according to the accessories attached. Incidentally, this toy comes in English and French-speaking; each version is sold separately. This toy is recommended for ages 4+ and retails for $40.00
