The colors remind me a lot of the forgotten Utapau Shadow Troopers, which were exclusives with black armor and very pale tan, almost light grey, stripes on the armor. Hasbro did those Shadow Troopers as 3 3/4-inch figures, but if they were the same scale as the Purge Trooper I bet they'd fit together nicely. The red highlights really pop, and it's a lot like that TIE Pilot that GameStop had a few years ago. You know the one.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from GameStop on a surprise visit during lunch in early 2020. Before the virus. Even when I tried to get the figure with the game (with a friend, as I do not have a PS4 or Xbone) the figure was out of stock - I hope Hasbro makes more.
