Hasbro have revealed a new addition to the Gaming Greats Star Wars Black Series line, the Imperial Rocket Trooper. The figure is based on the Battlefront 2 video game, and is a tweak to the original 2019 release of the Imperial Rocket Trooper which was based on that particular Trooper's appearance in Star Wars Rebels.
It will come in the new Phase 4 Galaxy Collection packaging and it looks like all the Gaming figures will come under the light blue accent colour with this figure sitting before the Deluxe Cal Kestis if the side art is accurate. That would put the Rocket Trooper as GG #01 and Cal Kestis as #02 unless there are more to be unveiled and Hasbro are revealing them out of sequence.
The Rocket Trooper will be a Summer 2021 release and will be a Gamestop / EB Games Exclusive in the US and Canada. Here in the UK, and elsewhere globally, the figure should be a Fan Channel release with pre-orders being opened as of the 5th March 2021.
