The Imperial Troop Transport(er)/Cruiser

Thanks to StarWars-Figuren.com we now have the first boxed images of the new Imperial Troop Transport.  As long time collectors and fans will know, this marks the third version of this vehicle to appear as a Star Wars action figure vehicle.

The first arrived in Kenner’s 1978 Star Wars line as the “Imperial Troop Transporter”.  The second was only a few years later as the “Imperial Cruiser” in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back Line.

The first two versions share the same mold with some electronic and color changes but the newest version which made its television debut on the Star Wars Rebels episode “Fighter Flight” is a brand new sculpt which has been modified from Kenner’s original design.

This was announced to be released in January 2015.imtrooptransportcan

Until next time,

May the Figures be with you!
