(TT) Robotech 1985 Invid Shock Trooper (Matchbox)

1985 Invid Shock Trooper (Matchbox)


*For Toys Tuesdays are the days I'm going to post Action Figures that still new in there package that are part of my collection. Many more to come.*

Yes, again I found This Robotech action figure at a local Craigslist/Garage sale. I was surprised to find the Invid Shock Trooper still new in package. Well sort of new in package. When I was younger I could never really find and Robotech action figures. When I saw the sellers collection I was really excited.

Invid Shocktrooper

Also known as: Gurab, Shocktrooper
Heavily Armed Invid Mainforce Mecha

Made by Matchbox in 1985. There is slightly less detail than the playmates and it has a different paint job, but other than that it's identical.

RDF wants you!

Vehicle holds one 3 3/4" figure.

Features: Opening Cockpit, Articulated Claws, Pivoting Shoulder Cannons

The Invid Shocktrooper is the standard front-line ground mecha of the Invid forces. Although capable of flight, the Shocktrooper is not suited for air-to-air combat, leaving that job to the faster and more agile fighter and scout Invid mecha. It's heavy weapons package makes it devastating air-to-ground attacks.

Inside The Package

A Size Comparison

The Robotech Invid Shock Trooper was turned into a Ferengi pistol in two DS9 episodes and even in ENT: "Acquisition" (though we should expect their technology to progress in 220 years). One shoulder cannon of the toy was made into the barrel, a leg became the handle of the Trek weapon.
