"You have great potential, 2187. You are officer corps material. Your duty is to the First Order above everything. Nothing else comes before that." ― Captain Phasma
FN-2187 was trained since birth to serve the First Order as a stormtrooper. FN-2187, known to his fellow troopers as Eight-Seven, was seen by his comrades and superiors as an ideal First Order stormtrooper, and consistently scored top marks as a cadet.
After Eight-Seven was deployed, he and his fellow troopers were sent on a mission to the desert planet Jakku. The skirmish on Jakku awakened his conscience and drove him down a different path, one that proved both heroic and dangerous. He helped Poe Dameron escape the First Order – picking up the nickname Finn in doing so – and then sought his own freedom alongside Rey and BB-8. And the rest, as they say, is "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" history.
Hot Toys previewed a 1:6 scale Finn (First Order Stormtrooper version) at SDCC2016 with the helmet having the blood from the dying FN-2003 ("Slip"), a distinguishing factor that made FN-2187 (Finn) stand out for the audience to see. The Stormtrooper outfit was also dirtied (weathered) because they had just gone into battle. That figure has yet to be released. This 12-inch figure of First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187 before the battle of Jakku is made possible by putting the head of Hot Toys recently released 1:6 scale Finn figure onto the body of a Hot Toys First Order Stormtrooper, in this case, the First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper from the two-figure pack that is MMS346. Full review of the set will be posted soon :) In the meantime, enjoy these pics.
