Thread: Dark Trooper Mini Bust - Interest Poll & Thread

  1. #11
    I never played the first Dark Forces but I always liked the look of the Darktrooper so I would be interested. But if I had an option to pick any character from the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games, I’d want Kyle Katarn from Dark Forces 2 above all else.

    That makes two of us, Daniel. Unfortunately, the poll isn't showing in our favor. It's unfortunate that people vote no on something they likely just have no clue about. There's a lot of older adult collectors out there, of course, but a lot of the younger kids collecting these days may have never even heard of Star Wars: Dark Forces, so they never experienced the game and a character from that game would mean nothing to them. If polled against Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker or even Kylo Ren, they'd likely choose any of those guys over a Dark Trooper.

    I think what would impress me the most about a Dark Trooper Mini Bust would be the immense size it would have to be in the 1/6 scale. Just imagine something along the lines of the Republic Commando Mini Busts.

    I also think once people saw one, they'd feel a lot differently about not wanting it.

    Absolutely. Both Kyle Katarn & Jan Ors would be most welcome.

    Yes.

    Feel like a lot of people forget he was in the classic Battlefront too, one of the more overpowered units in that game lol. Would be a unique looking bust and would make that Empire shelf pop.

    Saying that, there are still a lot of more characters out there that need treatment before him.

    Hate the design, don't want the bust. Hard pass on the fatrooper.

    Well... in the Trooper’s defense he’s not fat. In fact he’s not even a HE but an IT as the first few phases were actually droids. I believe the last model was actually an exo-suit though.

    I think these EU/video game characters would make good exclusives of some sort. Maybe a Celebration exclusive, as it doesn't seem like GG is going to step away from the McQ stuff for SDCC. I'd also be very open to some sort of crowdfunding through GG in order to get some of these more niche characters made. I think all phases of the Darktrooper would look quite striking.

    I believe the OT is all that is SW. Nothing else can ever be. Well maybe R1 and Solo can.
