Part of the fun of a new Star Wars movie is getting new trooper variants. I already got the Death Trooper, and here is one of other new Stormtroopers, the shoretrooper. Interestingly, the squad leader is the regular retail version, while the standard Scarif Stormtrooper is a Wal-Mart exclusive. Perhaps I'll be getting one of those later. These troopers have a different style of helmet , and their upper legs aren't even armored. But what really sets them apart is their color: Shoretroopers are way more earth-toned than any other Imperial force. The squad leader has some extra touches of color, with the blue on the shoulders and chest. It's a different look, and I like it. The shoretrooper is armed with a blaster rifle that I think (so far) is unique to it.
