Bio: Shadow troopers were elite and highly trained stormtroopers that served the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War against the Rebel Alliance. They wore distinguishing black suits of experimental armor coupled with portable cloaking devices, rendering them almost completely invisible and highly suited for stealth missions. (Stolen from Wookieepedia. Packaging has no bio.)

If you got the Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper [FOTD #2,598] a few months ago, the core body is exactly the same. You get the same amazing articulation, and the same construction, and many similar paint applications - just with more gear. If you want a black pauldron, and a rifle, you get them here. It's gorgeous, and something I've wanted them to do (correctly) for years. The black Crimson Empire trooper figures didn't have the silver lenses, and neither did the Russ Manning-specific comic pack Blackhole Stormtrooper [FOTD #1,491] from 2011. It took decades, but Hasbro nailed it this time. Next time, I hope they can do it in red.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
