Hot Toys First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader Figure to see Wider Release than Force Friday
Just before Force Friday officially kicked off late last week, the Hong Kong Toys “R” Us Facebook Page announced that they would have 300 exclusive Hot Toys First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader Figures on sale at the event. At that point it was unclear if Hot Toys would release the figure for more than just 300 people. It looks like they will, as the figure will be available in US, Japan, Singapore, Philippines, China, and other selected markets in small quantities.
The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This collectible figure features the brand new design First Order Stormtrooper armor and helmet, the white pauldron that indicates the rank of squad leader, highly detailed blasters, and a specially designed hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem!
Star Wars fans aren’t going to want to miss the chance to build up their First Order army with this figure, along with the recently announced regular First Order Stormtrooper and the First Order Heavy Gunner.
The figure is currently available for pre-order here and he’s priced at $219.99. He’s scheduled for release between November 2015 and January 2016, which should make this the first Hot Toys figure from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be released. Since this is an exclusive, it’s highly recommended to pre-order this figure before it starts shipping to guarantee that you will get one.
