The internet's favorite stormtrooper is about to get his own collectible figure from Hot Toys.
***WARNING: VERY MILD SPOILERS FROM AN AWESOME SCENE IN STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS BELOW***
For those of you who have already seen The Force Awakens, you may recall the one scene in which a pretty badass stormtrooper with a stun baton takes on a lightsaber-wielding Finn. It was a brief scene, which I feel should've been reserved for Captain Phasma, but nonetheless the internet has run wild with this guy — who has been cleverly named "TR-8R" after his breakout moment in which he angrily calls Finn a "traitor" to get his attention.
Despite his rather short screen time, TR-8R has become somewhat of a celebrity among Star Wars geeks, almost in the same vein as Boba Fett from the original trilogy. He kinda looks cool and has a badass moment on screen, that's about it; but, I guess it was enough to warrant an action figure, LEGO figurine, Pop! Vinyl, and now a Hot Toys collector's figurine.
Revealed by the toy company recently, the "First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper" (as he's officially referred to) now comes as a special 1/6th scale collector's set alongside Finn, re-enacting the memorable battle scene.
Check out the images below. For more details on what's included with the set, check out the official product listing.
The Finn and First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper Collectible Set will be available in August of 2016; however, you can pre-order the set now for $359.99.
