Hot Toys has revealed their Force Friday special release (or at least, the first one); the Executioner Trooper from The Last Jedi. From Hot Toys:
Today we are excited to officially introduce a 1/6th scale collectible figure of an all-new trooper with distinctive armor design from the upcoming film – the Executioner Trooper!
The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Executioner Trooper from Star Wars: The Last Jedi featuring new matte black with glossy white colored helmet and armor design, newly developed body and under-suit with improved articulations, the trooper’s unique weapon: electric axe with electricity effect parts, a blaster rifle, and a specially designed figure stand!
Furthermore, Hot Toys is proud to participate in the Force Friday II event in Hong Kong and Japan on September 1, a Toys”R”us exclusive edition of this Executioner Trooper will be available in limited quantity, so be sure to come join us at midnight to be among the first in the world to bring home this new First Order trooper to your collection!
From the images, it seems the only difference in the TRU version is the color of the label on the stand. It looks nice, I really hope there might be something else (non-trooper) coming as well (like TLJ Rey!)
Hopefully the “newly developed body and undersuit” will indeed help with articulation as the previous New Order Troopers were a challenge (to say the least) to pose.
Will you be picking this up? Let us know in the comments!
