1/6 Star Wars Stormtrooper (Porcelain Pattern Version) from Hot Toys!
We’ve seen them gifted to ROGUE ONE’s actors and the film’s director, now take a closer look at the Star Wars – 1/6th scale Stormtrooper (Porcelain Pattern Version) from Hot Toys! Love it or hate it, HT is moving forth beyond their straight-up character reproduction license, further blurring the line between “kid’s toy” and “adult’s art sculpture” for the masses!
HOT TOYS PRESS: "As the symbol of the Empire's sweeping military might, the Stormtroopers have a presence in all but every corner of the galaxy. As a special edition release, Hot Toys re-imagines the iconic white battle armor in an original design variation representing different cultures and civilizations."
HOT TOYS PRESS (CONTINUED): "This very special Star Wars collectible: a 1/6th scale Stormtrooper figure's pattern is inspired by the highly regarded blue-and-white porcelain motif that originated centuries ago in China!
Expertly crafted based on the classic Stormtrooper armor, this figure boldly adopts the unique blue-and-white porcelain floral patterns with an Imperial twist on the masked soldier's helmet and armor, blasters, interchangeable hands, and a specially designed figure stand!
Available as a limited edition item in selected markets only, this stylish and extraordinary interpretation of the Stormtrooper figure is a unique collectible for sophisticated fans and collectors."

Even if just a standalone Stormtrooper Helmet done up like this, with gloss finish - making it look like a restored “antique porcelain” piece, would look amazing as well, IMHO. Love the AT-ACT and palm tree motifs, in homage to ROGUE ONE's Maldives shooting locale, perhaps? LOL
