Role in Lego Star Wars
The Shadow Stormtrooper minifigure was first released in 2007 in a Expanded Universe set called Tie Crawler. The Shadow Stormtrooper minifigure are exactly the same as the Stormtrooper minifigures, except that the color coding is different. The black and grey markings on the torso were replaced with a blueish-grey color, the eyes were changed from black to silver. The head, like Stormtroopers, is black underneath the helmet.
