Description

First variant (2004)

SandtrooperVersion1

The first variant of the Sandtrooper.

The Sandtrooper minifigure made its first appearance in 2004 in 4501 Mos Eisley Cantina. The minifigure at the time was nearly identical to the Stormtrooper but with an added orange pauldron on the right shoulder and a small backpack. This variant only made one appearance.

Second variant (2007)

Sand Trooper

The second variant of the Sandtrooper.

Three years later, the Sandtrooper made its second appearance in physical form in 2007 in 7659 Imperial Landing Craft. In 2007 the Stormtrooper minifigure was redesigned and so was the Sandtrooper because of this. Just like the first variant, the Sandtrooper was nearly identical to the newly redesigned Stormtrooper apart from an added orange pauldron on the right shoulder. The minifigure featured a black head underneath the helmet. This variant only made one appearance.

Third variant (2010)

23ST

The third variant of the Sandtrooper.

Once again, three years later, the Sandtrooper was redesigned and made its third appearance in 2010 in 8092 Luke's Landspeeder. This time only the minifigures accessories had been redesigned, featuring a black pauldron instead of an orange one, and a backpack. The minifigure featured a black head underneath the helmet. This variant only made one appearance.

Fourth variant (2012)

Two years later, the Sandtrooper was redesigned once again and made its fourth appearance in 2012 in 9490 Droid Escape. This time the minifigure had been redesigned substantially featuring new realistic printing on the torso and legs depicting dirty armour. The head pieces will be black, but have printed faces on the front of them. This variant features the same backpack accessory as the third variant released in 2010. These variants to date are only known to make one appearance each.

Squad Leader variant

9490 Sandtrooper Leader

The Squad Leader variant.

The Squad Leader variant features the new orange pauldron and the backpack from the 2010 variation of the Sandtrooper but has a new designed face for the minifigure, like the 2010 Episode III Clone Pilot. The torso, legs and helmet of the Squad Leader look identical to that of the Sergeant. On the 9490 Droid Escape box art, the Squad Leader is depicted as piloting a speeder bike. This variant is armed with a blaster.

Sergeant variant

9490 SandSgt

The Sergeant variant.

The Sergeant variant features a brand new white pauldron and the backpack from the 2010 variation of the Sandtrooper. The torso, legs and helmet of the Sergeant look identical to that of the Squad Leader as well with a new face. On the 9490 Droid Escape box art, the Sergeant is holding a stud piece. The Sergeant is armed with a blaster rifle.

Fifth variant (2014)

The fifth variant is seen in 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina. This variant is similar to the new 2014 stormtrooper in 75055 Imperial Star Destroyer. The new variant has a Clone Trooper head peace. The figure features a brand new black pauldron and a backpack, similar like the 2012 variant. The pauldron shows, the sandtrooper's rank is Private.

The Fifth Variant (2014)

In the Video Games

The Sandtrooper has appeared in two video games to date, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, then LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, and in both versions is identical to the second variation of the Sandtrooper released in 2007 but with a megaphone with a transparent orange stud on it for a blaster instead of the new blaster piece. In the games, the Sandtrooper has the ability to jump, grapple, fire his blaster, dodge lasers, and build objects.

Background

Sandtroopers received specialized training and equipment which would prepare them for operations on desert worlds. Sandtroopers are identifiable due to their pauldrons, survival backpacks and sandy armour. On Tatooine Sandtroopers could be seen utilizing imperial landing crafts and dewbacks for transportation in air and on land.

Notes

  • Six variants of the sandtrooper have only appeared in one set each. The one exception being the variant released in 2014, which has since been re-released in the 2018 set 75221 Imperial Landing Craft.
