A perfect centerpiece for all of your formal dinner parties.

青花 (qīng-huā) pottery has been a tradition in China since the 14th century. Antique pieces were made of koalin clay and painted with cobolt oxide (or other blue pigments). The floral designs on this trooper are inspired by patterns found on centuries old pieces.

As the symbol of the Empire’s sweeping military might, the Stormtroopers have a presence in every corner of the galaxy. As a special edition release, Hot Toys re-imagines the iconic white battle armor in an original design variation representing different cultures and civilizations.

Expertly crafted based on the classic Stormtrooper armor, this figure boldly adopts the unique blue-and-white porcelain floral patterns with an Imperial twist on the masked soldier’s helmet and armor, blasters, interchangeable hands…

    And lo did the Porcelain Trooper, from atop his Porcelain Throne ask as he gazed into a mirror,
    “…why?”

  • Agent OfBolas

    wow, really great idea 🙂

    • It’s different and eye catching – and definitely not to everyone’s taste. The comments about it around the web have been really divided.

  • Aezeal

    I don’t want to be negative.. but who the F would buy this s**t?
    Why make this? Why?

    • Neal Laxman

      Someone will, Star Wars collectors are rabid for this type of thing.

    • Cergorach

      There’s a huge market for Star Wars fans who collect Delfts blue…

    • Hot Toys is based in Hong Kong – the Chinese market for collectables is huge. Might not be your cup of tea, but these will sell out.

    For those in the UK, anyone think he kind of looks like the new Wetherspoon’s plates? XD
