With Star Wars: The Force Awakens marching towards us at a steady pace, the newest toy to join the horde is none other than Bandai‘s very own figuarts Stormtrooper.
The 6″ tall First Order Stormtrooper figure doesn’t come with the usual blaster that most troopers have. Instead he comes with a lightsaber-resistant stun baton and a shield, which we assume is also somewhat Jedi proof. The baton even has some sliding parts for added extension effect; if you feel like you need to be zapping some Jedi.
Like all figurines from figuarts it is an extremely poseable, high quality figurine with many levels of articulation.
This isn’t the first time Bandai has produced Stormtroopers either, with the Black Series having a two pack with this Stormtrooper (its labeled as a “Riot Control” Stormtrooper) and an alternate version of Poe Dameron.
The trooper will be available from Bandai’s webstore for 5,616 yen (about RM 195) that’s not particularly expensive for a figuarts figure. Aside from the First Order trooper, Bandai has a whole heap of other Star Wars related merch on their store if you want to take a look for something a little more affordable.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in Malaysian theatres on 17 December 2015, and is the next installment of a thrilling saga that spans a galaxy a long time ago, far, far away.
