Compare this Imperial Jumptrooper figure
This Imperial Jumptrooper was released in a Toys'R'Us exclusive multipack in May of 2010. Imperial Jumptroopers can be seen in The Force Unleashed video game series.
For this figure - Hasbro re-used the existing Jumptrooper mold - but made some significant improvements to it. The biggest improvement is the inclusion of a jet-pack - which can now be plugged into a hole in the back of the figure. The previously released Jumptrooper didn't have a jet pack at all. Hasbro also changed the figure's blaster - which is now a bigger blaster rifle instead of the basic imperial blaster. This is a good change - because Jumptroopers in the game used bigger weapons than basic Imperial blasters. The rest of the figure is the same as the previously released version - including the super articulation - no balancing issues - stiffer joints and a non-removable helmet.
The paint application on the Imperial Jumptrooper is different from the first released figure. Now the clone trooper comes in a pristine condition - without any dirt or battle markings. All things considered - it's great to see that Hasbro took the chance and fixed the shortcomings of the first released Jumptrooper - by adding a jet-pack and changing the blaster rifle. The figure is a nice improvement - and different enough compared to the first Imperial Jumptrooper - which should please fans of The Force Unleashed!
Imperial Jumptroopers use rocket packs to burst through the air in short spurts. These air-to-ground attack troopers are heavily armed - using powerful plasma disruptors and rail detonators that can eliminate enemy targets from any angle.
