Star Wars Black Series Gaming Greats - Force Unleashed Stormtrooper Commander and Shadow Trooper

UK retailers are listing two brand new Star Wars Black Series Gaming Greats figures for pre-order. The two new figures had been leaked a week or so ago, but it is great to get official confirmation.

Up first is the Stormtrooper Commander from Star Wars The Force Unleashed. He will be packed with two blasters - the E-11 and the DLT-19X heavy blaster.

"The Stormtrooper Commanders patrol hostile battlefields, leading their troops into fierce combat on dangerous worlds such as the fungus planet Felucia." - Force Unleashed Fandom

And from the same game we have the Shadow Stormtrooper. The trooper has the same weapons as the Commander. He features translucent parts by the look of things to show him phasing out of his cloaking technology.

"Shadow Troopers were a branch of Imperial shock troopers deployed during the Rise of the Empire era. Shadow Trooper units were deployed on various operations under the command of the Emperor's Shadow Guard and Stormtrooper commanders." - Star Wars Fandom

Some sites are listing both figures are down for a May/June release, while others are quoting that the Shadow Trooper will be a later release in July 2020. Pricing is a little higher than usual at circa £23, this was the same case with Jedi Revan and the Heavy Battle Droid

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
