Stormtrooper of the Week
This weeks Stormtrooper is an updated version to our previous spotlighted Stormtrooper. The year was 1995 and the Star Wars franchise had laid dormant for a few years (at least as far as action figures were concerned), but that was all about to change as the Licensing juggernaut that Lucasfilm was about to unleash the new and improved Star Wars Action Figure in the "Power of the Force 2 line".
Some thought that these new incarnations of the beloved characters from a galaxy far, far away where a little bit bulkier for their tastes, like they had hit the steroids. This is probably more evident in the characters of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, still these were a welcome sight to many Star Wars fans. I for one really like this line, it was from a time when collecting Star Wars stuff was fun. It's hard to believe that this line is now over twelve years old.
