The first figures from S.H. Figuarts’ Star Wars: The Last Jedi collection are starting to ship, and our First Order Stormtrooper pre-order showed up, so it’s time to review him and all of his plastic glory.
This is the definitive version of a First Order Stormtrooper thanks to the shoulder pauldron accessories, which allows you to transform him into various ranks of First Order troopers. He also comes with three sets of hands, two handguns, and a blaster with a fold down handle.
In terms of build quality he has the Figuarts charm. Paint, sculpt, and articulation points are stellar, and he feels sturdy too, unlike the Rogue One Stormtrooper, which had cheap feeling armor, at least in his shoulder plates. He poses very well, but has trouble getting his blaster rifle up and ready for an aimed shot. But in terms of his overall POA, I can’t complain.
He is a bit short when compared to the Black Series troopers, but at this point that is to be expected with the Star Wars Figuarts figures, which have all been a tad smaller than the cheaper Black Series line.
You can check out this figure in detail via the video review below. There is also a gallery of still shots showing him off. He should now be available for shipping at most Japanese retailers. We suggest AmiAmi.
