I've already covered Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper earlier HERE and HERE, followed by 1/6th scale Finn 12-inch Collectible Figure review HERE and HERE. And now we have the 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper and Finn Collectible Figures in battle. A reenactment of the duel to the death scene in the film.
The First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper (in the film it's FN-2199) is equipped with his Z6 Riot Control Baton which has a magnetic grip, can be spun in combat and delivers a stunning shock (electricity effect provided). While the weapon is non-lethal in theory, the Z6 can definitely cause harm or kill an opponent when used with brute force. If a lightsaber can’t cut it, you know it ain’t good news.
Finn is armed with a lightsaber (Luke Skywalker's lightsaber which once belonged to his father Anakin Skywalker) which cantina owner Maz Kanata had given to him for safekeeping when he arrived at Takodana with Rey, BB-8, Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon. When the First Order attacks Takodana in search of BB-8, all hell breaks loose and Finn is drawn into the fight. Once FN-2199 sees Finn (formerly his friend and comrade when he was First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187 - see 1/6th scale Finn in Stormtrooper outfit HERE) fighting with the resistance, he is enraged and calls Finn "Traitor!"

In the trailers for the film, we are almost led to believe that Finn is a Jedi because he's wielding the lightsaber. We now know that it is actually Rey who's the Jedi, and a mighty strong one at that.
Here's the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper standing side by side with Finn 12-inch figure. They are both of the same height but Finn's sloping shoulders makes him appear taller.
The picture below shows a sci-fi futuristic Riot Control trooper standing next to the conventional present-day Riot Control Police Officer. On the left of the picture is Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper and on the right is the ZCWO 1/6th scale United States Riot Police "Shawn" 12-inch action figure (reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). The regular Riot Police is more heavily outfitted and equipped than the sleek looking First Order Stormtrooper but the baton and shield are the identifying items of any Riot Control personnel.
