It’s not hard to see that the Stormtrooper comes from ancient Japan. Like the samurai styled soldier from Galactic Empire? Let’s keep going for the Star Wars Yumi Ashigaru Stormtrooper action figure.
This is a pretty cool Stormtrooper action figure combined with the futuristic styling from Star Wars and Japanese ancient culture. Similar with the taikoyaku Stormtrooper, the action figure’s iconic armor suit has been modified based on the armors used by samurai warriors in ancient Japan. Meanwhile, the helmet also features an integrated triangular hat that delivers more Japanese footmen likeness.
The samurai stormtrooper action figure measures 6.69 inches tall and his blaster rifle has been replaced by a few ancient cold weapons including a collapsible bow, a quiver with five arrows and a katana. Moreover, a large shoulder armor helps him defense against those sharp arrows on the battlefield. Apart from these, the action figure comes with many joints of articulation, so you can design various postures for the samurai from Galactic Empire.
