Have you seen the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ TV spot where a totally badass First Order Stormtrooper goes toe-to-toe with Finn who wields a lightsaber? This particular “Riot Control” Stormtrooper has been replicated and miniaturised in true Figuarts style, and the dynamism of this ridiculously articulated figure just makes it look so cool.
The roughly 6-inch (15cm) tall trooper doesn’t come with a blaster like the other Figuarts trooper. He's only equipped with just the Z6 Riot Control Baton (which also appears to be lightsaber-resistant) and Riot shield. The baton has sliding parts to replicate the action of it extending and electrifying whenever the First Order Stormtrooper goes into battle, and you have to admit: this is just an extremely nifty-looking action figure.
Now I just want the 1:6 scale version!
Let's hope Hot Toys don't make it a Toy Fair Exclusive with light-up baton.
