Toyguide Update: SDCC Exclusive 6″ TBS First Order Stormtrooper

SDCC_TFA_FO_ST_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with a special look at the SDCC exclusive 6″ First Order Stormtrooper from the Black Series line of figures.

PROS: Here, we get our first real exposure to a toy from The Force Awakens and if other product in this line is as good (or better), I suspect there will be many happy collectors. Paint apps are pretty spot with little to no egregious slop (at least on this sample) and the articulation is pretty standard at this point, allowing for a lot of realistic and dynamic posing options. Overall proportions of the figure are good and the sculpt is highly detailed. I would expect to see a least a few trooper variants out of this mold so it is a great base for those future releases. The weapons are handled nicely with white and silver accents laid over familiar, yet all-new, blaster design(s) for the new films. They are able to be clipped into the right thigh via a dedicated tab – both of which are held securely when stowed.

CONS: Surprisingly, Hasbro elected to revert to insert-molded joints for the elbows whereas most prior 6″ Black Series figures were double-jointed. This limits their range of motion somewhat and prevents them from being bent less than 110º. Still no display stand for a line of figures that really could benefit from them. This will surely be a popular item to track down before and after SDCC, but thankfully, it will be released at retail, making the packaging/presentation the real collectible here.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this exclusive item is worth adding to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.

Thanks to Hasbro for providing us this early sample.
