General Rahm Kota's Militia Elite Trooper was released in the first of two Toys'r'us exclusive The Force Unleashed multipacks. The sets were released in May of 2010 during The Legacy Collection, and each set contained 5 Star Wars figures. The Militia Elite can be seen throughout the game, including some cutscenes before Starkiller encounters Rahm Kota for the first time.
The trooper has 12 joints, a ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders and elbows, 2 swivel wrists, a swivel waist and legs, and ball-jointed knees. There are no joints in the ankles, but the figure stands nicely without any balancing problems. The included helmet can easily be put on or taken off the figure, but unfortunately the chin strap keeps pushing it up a little, so that the visor sits slightly above the eyes. With enough patience though, you should be able to get the helmet to stay in place the way you want it. The backpack and both shoulder armor pieces can be plugged into holes and stay firmly attached. The over-sized weapon looks clunky, and the figure has trouble holding it.
The paint application on the figure is well done, with lots of nice weathering on the clothes. The silver painted details on the backpack are nice, but the backpack's gray base color is disappointing, because it looks very "plastic". The figure is sculpted nicely with plenty of details all over, like the straps on the chest, or the armor on both arms. The "ANH-Rebel-Trooper-inspired" helmet looks great too. All in all, this Militia Elite Trooper is a cool figure, which looks great on display next to Rahm Kota.
