Hasbro will be releasing a Rogue One Death Trooper in the 2018 Vintage Collection line.

Any thoughts on this figure? Who's going to purchase it?

Only got a couple from the Wal*Mart line. Will see to collect a few more to flank the eventual Krennic when he's announced.

Another figure that was impossible to find at Wal-Mart with Endor Han, Poe and Finn warming the pegs. Looking forward to finally being able to put together a full squad of Deathtroopers. Crossing my fingers and hopeing they also reissue the Scarif Troopers and with squad leader and Captain markings.

Count me in for a couple. If we're lucky, maybe we'll get some new accessories that Hasbro strangely omitted the first time around (I'm looking at you, Special Forces DLT-19).

Same. This is a good choice and I'm in for a couple.

Nope, not for me. I'm looking at selling my WM version currently. Still in the package.
then why did you buy it in the first place? :awesome:

Never understood the whole "buy it, then decide if you want it" philosophy.

Be awesome to see a Death Trooper especially to see what the cardback looks like .
Judging by the Hasbro presentation, it'll probably be this image that's behind the figure. The Rey in the presentation has the same image used on her cardback we've seen.

Yup, definitely need at least one. Will buy the whole wave case if I have to.

Managed to get enough loose ones from the Black series, so just the one of these for the cardback for me.

I have three of this one, so I'm not sure if I'll get any more. With only 15 figures scheduled for 2018, I might end up picking up a few anyway, though.

Yeah, if I remember correctly, 6 flanked Krennic, 3 of which with the pauldron and 3 without.

Yes, this can't be said enough, or loudly enough.

Would be in for three if they include it, otherwise zero.

I have four, although one has a broken shoulder joint. May get more to replace or fill out the ranks a bit. There were what, six in the movie total?
I think there was 8 total, counting the six that get off the shuttle on Scarif during the battle and the two with Krennic in the base during the battle. Four with pauldrons and four with out.

I have a bunch mainly flanking Thrawn on my display. The Krennic character and figure is too underwhelming.

It would be nice if Hasbro changed things up slightly and gave this version of the Death Trooper their variant of the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle.

I also can't wait. As a Death Trooper-focus collector, I would like to have at least one of these guys.

The RO single pack carded Death Trooper artwork will be sorta hard to out do imo.

I had no intention on getting another Death Trooper...but that cardback sold me. It's also an amazing figure.

I wonder if they'll release a second version with the alternate helmet for army building

Too bad we're not getting a Patrol Trooper, I'd buy several of those!

These other troopers just aren't doing it for me.

I lucked up and found 6 of the BS Wal mart ones on clearance ... But I would likely still get this but have never seen it in person

I got this tonight at the Wallingford Walmart. It was my first time finding this character, and the only one available for purchase. Unbelievable luck. B)

Reminds me of catching a rare pokemon:

You caught a Death Trooper! Would you like to give it a nickname? :{J
