Hot Toys Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale Finn 12-inch Collectible Figure Review

continued from previous toy blog post...

After reviewing the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper Collectible Figure HERE and HERE, it's time to take a look at the Hot Toys 1/6th scale Finn 12-inch Collectible Figure. Before he became Finn, he was First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187, trained since birth to serve the First Order and he had potential to become an officer. But the battle of Jakku changed all that. Participating in a mission to the planet Jakku to retrieve information about the location of Luke Skywalker, he is horrified when Ren orders him to massacre civilians, an order his team follows without question. He decides to flee the First Order and ends up joining the fight against them.


You can check out 1:6 scale Finn in his First Order stormtrooper outfit HERE. After escaping the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer "Finalizer" with Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, their TIE Fighter is shot down and crashes on Jakku. When Finn finally finds the wreckage of the ship, he sees only Dameron's jacket and assumes Poe to be dead. Finn had stripped off all the stormtrooper armor and was only wearing a T-shirt and pants. He decides to hold on to Poe's jacket which is how it came to be in his possession when he meets up with Rey and BB-8. How he ended up with Luke Skywalker's lightsaber is another story altogether.

I have already covered the packaging box and contents in my earlier action figure review of this Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale Finn and First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper Collectible Figures Set HERE so I'll go straight to the Instructions Sheet for Hot Toys Finn. It's the usual - don't turn the head until you have tilted it upwards, otherwise the paint on the neck might get rubbed off; insert batteries (included) into the lightsaber arm to activate the lights on the lightsaber; roll up sleeve to switch the arms; put bombs in bag.


Here's Hot Toys Finn without his jacket. By the way, the instruction sheet says you are not supposed to remove the jacket. I wanted to see what he was wearing underneath. Finn has on a dark gray colored long sleeve tee, black colored pants and dark brown colored boots


Here's Finn with the Resistance Fighter jacket, "borrowed" from Poe Dameron


Check out the close-up pictures of Hot Toys 1/6th scale John Boyega as Finn head sculpt. The authentic and detailed likeness is pretty spot on with highly-accurate facial expression and hair sculpture.


Hot Toys MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1:6 scale Finn Collectible Figure's accessories include: Resistance emblem hexagonal figure stand with Finn nameplate and Star Wars logo, eight Pyro Denton Explosive bombs (one bomb is in activated mode - shown separated from the rest), gray colored bomb bag, BlasTech EL-16 blaster rifle with strap, lightsaber hilt (non-light-up version).


Other accessories: Seven pieces of interchangeable palms / hands including: pair of fists, pair of palms for holding lightsaber, right palm for holding blaster. Figure comes with a pair of relaxed palms. One right lower arm with lightsaber hilt (light-up version), batteries and lightsaber blade.


Batteries inserted into arm


Lightsaber blade attached to hilt


Lightsaber switched on! To see how the light-up lightsaber looks on the figure, check out my earlier action figure review of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS297 "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" 1/6th scale Luke Skywalker 12-inch collectible figure HERE as I didn't attach this arm to Finn.


Here's Hot Toys Finn holding on to Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, all ready for his duel with FN-2199 (reviewed in my earlier post HERE)

In the movie, he stores the lightsaber in the loops on the left side of his coat. No one has any photos of that with the figure. Have you tried it, and does it fit?
