And now, the final figure from the first wave of Force Awakens toys (I skipped Chewie because it was basically a re-release of the one I already have), it's the First Order Stormtrooper. I'm a sucker for trooper figures, so buying this one was a no-brainer. It's a nice update to the Stormtrooper design, looking a lot sleeker. I still can't help seeing a big smile or a mustache on the helmet, but overall it's a cool design. Apparently, the trusty E-11 blaster is still in use, although it has an updated black and white color scheme. The First Order Stormtrooper is also armed with a smaller blaster pistol that can be holstered by plugging it into the armor on the right thigh. We've already seen First Order versions of Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers, so here's hoping there will be an equivalent Scout Trooper as well.
