Entertainment Weekly dropped a doozy of an exclusive on our laps, today. Amongst a few other images (like the leaked pics of the Hasbro Black Series First Order Stormtrooper that’s been floating around on the internets) EW officially unveiled Lego’s first entry into the Force Awakens milieu…Lego’s Buildable First Order Stormtrooper.
The 9 inch figure will contain 81 pieces and have posable limbs. While it looks really awesome, there is a bit of bad news. The set won’t be available until Jan 1, 2016. But…that’s not too bad, I suppose. Considering the movie doesn’t come out until 12/18. Only a few short weeks later. Still, I’m surprised the set isn’t going to be available on Star Wars day, 9/4/2015.
You’ll be able to get a good look at the figure at San Diego Comic Con, in the meantime. Head on over to EW for all the details.
