Hasboro Toy Shop - Sandtrooper and Dewback Black Series

Recommended Posts

I picked mine up on Friday.  The dewback is really awesome. The only downer about it all is that the pauldron is, in fact, grey-

repeating the old mistake from the 90s.

Overall awesome though.

Yep, already planned on correcting that and the damn blue on the pack.

I got mine at Target the morning everything went out. 
Our local Walmarts also got the dewback (but nothing else from the 6" series, oddly).
Some people have had luck locally with gamestop as well.
Even amazon has the dewback in stock right now- and at regular retail rather than scalper-markup

I saw a few at ThinkGeek the other day too but I managed to get mine for about $10 less than the normal retail.

Do I hear a little bit of malicious joy in that statement? ;)

Well at least you have easy access to all those peanut butter sweets like reeses and stuff... but actually I can be happy that those aren't available where I live, elsewhere my armor wouldn't fit anymore:sweat:

I saw the dewback set at a local Walmart this week.  Seems like there were three on the shelf.

Reeses or other goodies left aside...I'd love to have one of those!! But I'm not liking the trooper....I'm only in it for the dewback :D

I have to paint in all the lines on the helmet too. I would redo the blue stripes but that's way more work than I want to do haha.

I picked mine up on Amazon a few days ago: https://amzn.to/2juXq5a

This is a great piece.  The dewback is very detailed...and heavy.  Articulated too.  I'm very happy with it.

I was never able to get the orange pauldron trooper, so I bought 2 black pauldron troopers and airbrushed one of them.  I plan on doing the same with the gray pauldron...making it white and then weathering it a bit.

I used some masking tape and handi-tak to mask the pauldron:

I "primed" it with flat black spray, and then hit it with orange acrylic through an airbrush.  There's no way the acrylic would bite into that smooth plastic, flat enamel/primer was a must.

Your orange pauldron turned out great, and I love all of the detail they've put into the figures, including proper trigger finger discipline!

My nights and weekends have been so busy that I haven't even had time to open the box yet!

The things we do for screen accuracy...I had to paint that pauldron white.

This trooper's head was a lot more difficult to remove from the body than my other troopers.  If you do try to paint the pauldron, use caution when removing this little guy's head.

Its so GRAY

Used some masking tape and HandiTak to mask the pauldron:

Used a few light coats of flat white primer:

Cleaned up the edges with a toothpick:

Used some Tamiya Weathering Master pastels that I use for plastic aircraft modeling, I also weathered the orange pauldron, it was too clean.

Now everyone is happy!
