As many of you may know they’ve redesigned the look of the Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I have to say I really like it and over time it could be just as iconic as the original design.
Kotobukiya have revealed that they to will be releasing a First Order Stormtrooper ARTFX + statue based on the character’s appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It looks absolutely fantastic. The statue is in the 1/10 scale, standing around 7-inches tall. The detail looks incredible and copies the look of the character perfectly. The paint is very clean too.
You’ll have to assemble the statue and it’s a snap-fit, which is easy to assemble. It’ll have magnets in the feet so the statue is more stable on its base. It’ll also include optional pauldrons – you’ll get a white, orange and a black one so you can display your trooper whichever way you prefer. Kotobukiya has already announced the Stormtrooper as a 2-pack, but it was without the pauldron accessories, so I guess you could think of this set as the Stormtrooper Squad Leader.
Unfortunately you’ll have to wait till next April for the statue to be released. SRP for this statue is $54.99, but it is possible to secure a pre-order for about $10 less than that.
