Hot Toys has released photos and details for their upcoming Hot Toys Star Wars The Force Awakens – Finn “FN-2187” First Order Stormtrooper Version. The figure will include a Finn head sculpt, a bloody Stormtrooper helmet, a blaster rifle, a blaster pistol, multiple interchangeable hands and a figure stand.
“I was raised to do one thing, but I’ve got nothing to fight for.”
Originally trained since birth to serve the First Order as a Stormtrooper, FN-2187 was deeply affected by the death of his squad mate and the innocent villagers during the attack of Tuanul on the desert planet Jakku. The skirmish has awakened his conscience and drove him down a different path, one that proved both heroic and dangerous and picking up a new name – Finn.
Today Hot Toys is delighted to officially present the 1/6th scale Finn (First Order Stormtrooper Version) collectible figure as a limited quantity exclusive item only available in selected markets.
The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of John Boyega in the film featuring a newly painted head sculpt, a sleek First Order Stormtrooper armor with weather effects and helmet with the iconic blood mark, blaster rifle and blaster pistol, and a hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem.
Don’t pass up on the opportunity to add this exclusive collectible figure to your Star Wars collection today!

SDCC 2016 was good for Star Wars Black Series collectors. We got an OT Ben Kenobi, a first look Jyn Erso from Rogue One, and a beefed up Kylo Ren set. Kylo comes with an unmasked head, a first order banner, a full ligtsaber and hilt-only version like the K-Mart set, and a melted Darth Vader helmet. Basically a total Black Series Kylo Ren package. Let’s take a look after the break!
SDCC 2016 has come and gone, but today we are jumping into some galleries for items from the show. First up is the Star Wars Black Series Obi Wan Kenobi exclusive. The 6 inch figure features old Ben as we know him from Episode IV, cloth cloak and all. The SDCC set also comes with an exclusive accessory – the table seen in Luke’s hut on Tatooine where R2-D2 projected the famous Princess Leia call for help hologram message. The piece also lights up and plays the message! We’ve run Ben through the motions, check out over 70 images after the break!

The new Battle Droid figure, fresh off the Droid Foundry factory line, is based on their appearance in Episode II during the Battle of Geonosis. It will include a blaster and an interchangeable C-3PO head sculpt.
Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – Phase 2 Clone Trooper
In Episode III, the Clone Troopers were redesigned, bringing them closer to the familiar Stormtrooper armor seen in the original Star Wars trilogy. The new figure will include some interchangeable hands, a blaster pistol and a blaster rifle.
