Stormtroopers and zombies normally have very little in common– other than they’re non-existent ability to properly aim firearms. However, Gentle Giant Ltd. has decided that, much like chocolate and peanut butter, the Empire’s grunts and undead hordes are two great tastes that taste great together! That’s right, the latest statue from Gentle Giant’s Star Wars line up is none other than the Death Trooper! The shambling clones first appeared in the Random House novel, Death Troopers which introduced a horror slant to a galaxy far, far away; and now you can bring these soldiers very, very close!
