The Imperial Stormtroopers are the main ground-force of the Galactic Empire, under the leadership of Emperor Palpatine and his commanders, most notably Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin. The order of battle of the Stormtrooper Corps is unspecified in the Star Wars universe, but its numbers are far fewer than those of the Imperial Army's regular troopers. Despite this, the apparently high combat effectiveness of the Stormtroopers as well as their harsh reputation serve as the main reasons for deploying them almost exclusively in most of the military engagements of the Galactic Empire.
They are shown in collective groups of varying organizational sizes ranging from squads to legions, and for some, their armor and training is modified for special operations and environments. The troopers' most distinctive equipment is their white battle armor, inherited from their time as clone troopers. The complete armor set completely encases the body and typically has no individually distinguishing marking (in contrast to the clone trooper armor, which typically had various colorings to denote rank or unit, Stormtrooper armor has no rank affiliation).
Accompanying the Bandai Japan S.H. Figuarts Star Wars Darth Vader 6" action figure with bonus Special Base (posted HERE) will be this Bandai Japan S.H. Figuarts Star Wars Stormtrooper 5.75-inch (145mm) tall action figure. The figure will be made of PVC, ABS material and the set contents: Main figure; Optional hand parts x 2 types, both sides; Blaster rifle. NOTE the height difference which will help make these figures more screen accurate.
