Wow! Has it already been a week? Talk about losing track of time. Well I've been very busy at work and at home. Work we are preparing for the increase in Spider-Man 3 movie merchandise and at home I'm completing some yard projects.
Anyway onto the Trooper of the week! This guy actually came out a few months before the trooper from last week, kind of a filler product if you will. He's a small die cast piece put out by Kenner (which is now Hasbro) about the size of a walnut (or if you've been reading, a hair under a Jawa on the Utini Scale), and was branded under the banner of Action Masters. The line contained some of the space and superhero licenses that Kenner had at the time; Star Wars, Aliens, Superman, and Batman to name a few.
This little guy was one of several Star Wars characters represented, including Darth Vader, C3-PO, R2-D2, and I believe Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and ol' Ben Kenobi.
