Back when I was a kid, STAR WARS was my main thing for a great many years. I was DARTH VADER for Halloween three years running (’82-’84 maybe?), and my collection of Kenner STAR WARS toys was impressive. While my original collection was sold somewhere around 1988 (which still sucks), I do have one of the vintage 3 3/4 inch Stormtroopers among a small collection that I’ve re-acquired and have displayed in my office. But for those that want something about 19.2 times larger, the crew at Gentle Giant have the answer… with a life-sized, 6′ version of the original action figure. Weird? Yes. But we’re talking about a life-size version of a toy that was a miniature version of something that was life-size. Check this out…
The folks at Entertainment Earth are now taking pre-orders for the STAR WARS Stormtrooper Life-Size Vintage Kenner Monument Action Figure for the low price of just $2,299.99. I am an EE affiliate, so if you’re going to buy one, please do so here so I can make a few bucks off the sale and keep my mortgage paid and kids in school (The FTC makes me say that).
“The Kenner action figure of the Stormtrooper from Star Wars that you know and love and grew up with now comes to you in full life-size form! This amazing monument has been digitally scanned from an authentic and mint-condition 3 3/4-inch original Kenner Star Wars Stormtrooper Action Figure, and then reproduced to a staggering 6-feet tall!
