Rogue One finally comes out this weekend, and with it a wave of frenzy over the latest installment in the Star Wars universe. 

To commemorate it, of course there will be an ocean of new merch which we Star Wars fanatics will happily fling our wallets at. However, we got the chance to check out Walmart’s exclusive Black Series Scarif Stormtrooper in advance of the film’s release, and we have to say it’s pretty awesome.

The Specialist Scarif Stormtroopers are stationed at the top-secret Imperial Military Headquarters in the film, and its their job to keep the peace on this secluded, tropical planet.

A lot of action figure these days come packed with tons of accessories, but the Scarif trooper is not one of them – it’s just him (or her!) and a blaster rifle.

The figure is fully articulated, however it is worth noting that the decor under its belt make it difficult to put it in a sitting position. Stormtroopers were never meant to sit, anyway.

The figure stands at six inches, putting it on par with the rest of the figures in the Black Series. Paint and detailing are great. This would look terrific on the shelf next to the Squad Leader from the same collection. (Sadly, we don’t have one to play with—yet).

The Scarif Stormtrooper is on sale now through Walmart for just $19.99. According to its website, it’ll arrive in time for the holidays if you order now. 

Or you could go grab it, give it to whoever you go see Rogue One with this Friday, and make yourself look like the coolest, most thoughtful person ever.

Buy it here.
