Review: Stormtrooper Alarm Clock

34 posts in this topic

I saw the post about the Stormtrooper and Darth Vader alarm clock. I then saw a post that they are on sale at Kmart.

I ran to the nearest Kmart and picked up the Stormtrooper on sale for $22.49 USD.

It is a neat giant mini fig. I only have one issue, and that is the fact that the head is not poseable. You cannot rotate the head. You can push the head down a little and it deactivates the alarm and/or activates the side LEDs to illuminate the clock face.

Only thing this needs is a lego stormtrooper gun to scale of this giant figure.

Here is the receipt

Picture of the box. Ignore the little Stormtrooper minifig. I threw that in there so you get and idea of scale.

Here is what you see when you open the box.

Cool, thanks for the review! Do you think you can show us a pic of the illuminated face?

Also, you should totally take a pic of the giant stormie about to step on the Vader minifig! :laugh:

Cool! I want one now. Can you post a picture of this lit up?

BTW, you only paid $0.79 tax! That's insanely low.

There is a picture of it lit up. The face does not light up. I didnt see anything mentioned in the Instructions.

The picture of the Stormie holding up the Chrome and Black troopers. His tummy is lit up.

Okay. So it glows orange? I like blue better, but whatever...

Here you go. Oh yeah the sales tax in that area is only 3.5%!!!! I just realized the confusion. FBTB mentions an "Illuminated Face". That description is vague. We never considered the fact that the description was refering to the clock's face. Not the mega-fig face.

I guess I will dub these MEGA-FIGS. cause they are not Mini hehe.

What does the alarm sound like? Annoying, too loud, not loud enough? Is it just beeping or music?

Looks awesome btw. If I got one, though, it would have to be my main alarm clock and functionality is important.

It is just a beeping sound. :sceptic:

*huh*

They actually included batteries! :laugh:

(yes, I'm aware this is not a LEGO set by TLG, but still)

So even with the locked head, this is still more poseable than the maquettes, right?

Yep. Legs and arms move like a normal Minifig.

Nice. A pity there isn't a cover to go over the display when you want to use him in an MOC.

Oh. That makes more sense I guess. I was wondering how the hell a black Vader head could illuminate. :wacko: Thanks. Thanks for the funny pic too! :thumbup:

Hands too?

It might be a nice challenge MOCing a blaster for this guy. :sweet:

Yep. Hands rotate at the wrist.

I was thinking about it. But getting the angle of the blaster grip will be a bit of a challenge.

I got the Darth Vader- I really like it, but I wish it was more functional- you can't have it lit all the time, so you can't see it at night unless you push the head (and wake up your wife), and I wish it was a radio too...

Thanks for the review Solscud007 :thumbup:

He doesn't look half bad, but I agree with Brickdoctor that it would have been nice if it had a cover to go over the alarm display.

Thats cool his legs, arms and hands rotate. :thumbup:

Nice funny shot! :sweet:

Did it come with the minifig? Anything special about the minifig, or is it identical to the standard stormies.

No i just put the minifig in for scale. I actually made that disclaimer in my post.

Nah, radio is a bit much. However I would like a feature to deactivate the beeping sound.

It's a bit misleading though when you say "here is what you see when you open the box". I was confused at first too.

So, does it beep every time you hit the head? That sucks. :sceptic:

It jsut means people need to read more closely hehe. :laugh:

It looks nice enough. I think I'll hold out for Luke though.

GL with that. I havent researched it, but I have only heard of Lukes sighted in Canada.

...I first saw both Stormtrooper and Darth Vader alarm clocks on eBay a few weeks ago (selling for US$49.99 each plus shipping), so I checked the internet (out of curiosity of how much it really cost). Found it on Amazon.Com for US$29.99 each, no sales tax and no shipping. Bought the Stormtrooper for myself and Darth Vader for my wife (birthday gift). Will open both around Christmas-time. So if you don't have a K-Mart nearby, your best best is to buy it online. Hope this helps to those who wants one or two...
