Next week is Force Friday II for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and LEGO will be having some promotions going on for it. One of these promos is the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag with a purchase of $50 or more. This polybag is in the same style as the R3-M2 (40268) as it has a stand and backing card.
The Scarif Stormtrooper, also known as a shoretrooper, is exclusive to this set as it is different from the one in the TIE Striker (75154) and the Battle on Scarif (75171). He has on a tan armor with a sand blue stripe that goes across the top. Both of the arms are also sand blue. The legs are also tan with some brown on the upper half. He also wears a dark blue kama around the waist to signify that he is a squad leader. His accessory is a blaster rifle.
Continuing with this series of minifigure polybags, the Scarif Stormtrooper also comes with a stand. The build is the exact same as R3-M2 as it uses a black 3×4 plate to stand the minifigure on. It also has a Technic pin to connect to R3-M2’s stand.
The background card shows a sandy location, most likely on the beach of Scarif. Once again, you have the LEGO Star Wars logo on top with the copyright on the left side. It connects to the stand using a couple of Technic axles on the back. One thing to note is that, you don’t have to punch out the little holes like you had to do for R3-M2.
I do like the LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag especially when it is connected to R3-M2. The Scarif Stormtrooper minifigure itself is exclusive and is another character from Rogue One that was used in this type of polybag. Who knows if LEGO has planned for more Rogue One characters to continue with these polybags or if there will be different ones from another movie.
Again, you can pick up the Scarif Stormtrooper during Force Friday II from September 1-3 with a purchase of $50 or more.
