The Star Wars universe embraced zombies with the release of the novel Death Troopers in October 2010. Now, Gentle Giant Studios has revealed an officially licensed zombie Stormtrooper statue:

Product Description: "Inspired by the events from the Random House novel Death Troopers. Nothing can prepare the galaxy for what lies waiting aboard a seemingly abandoned, derelict Star Destroyer. Amidst its vast creaking emptiness the unknown is lurking and the dead are slowly rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

This elite Stormtrooper is infected with more than just the dark side. This remarkably horrifying 1/6th scale statue is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone. Each piece is individually numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Accurately sculpted with detailed and distressed armor, then hand painted to Gentle Giant's always exacting specifications, this unique limited edition piece is a must-have for Star Wars and horror fans alike!"

The Death Trooper statue will only be produced in limited quantities and is selling for $225. The item is expected to ship in Q4 2011. We've included images below and you can order one for yourself over at: http://www.gentlegiantltd.com
