Star Wars - The Force Awakens

As we all know, the 7th instalment of the Star Wars franchise will be officially release soon. And before the movie hits us, the marketing wheels of merchandising have already spun to our doorsteps!

Hot Toys has announced a slew of 1/6 figures that are most definitely going to be best sellers. These figures include:

1/6 Kylo Ren - A member of the Kylo Knights, Ren is the commander of the First Order Troopers. He wields a unique crossguard lightsaber as a dark practitioner of the Force.

First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader - I am not sure about you but this guy reminds me of the Sandtroopers from the Original Trilogy! A definite sellout in my opinion.

First Order Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper - It first started with the "skittle-like" colour permutations of the Clone Troopers in "Attack of the Clones" and "The Force Awakens" is definitely not letting up on this merchandising strategy! The First Order Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper is well, a Stormtrooper wielding a different weapon. 

First Order Stormtrooper - No self-respecting Star Wars movie will be complete without these smart looking but "can't-aim-straight" cannon fodders. Introducing the First Order Stormtrooper. Let the Army Building begins.......

A 2-Pack offering featuring one each of the First Order Stormtrooper and his buddy, the First Order Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper. I mentioned Army Building earlier, haven't I? ;-)

I am not sure about other collectors and/or Star Wars fans. For me, I am getting all of the above. And that includes multiples of the Stormtroopers... The wait has ended, the buying force has awaken...........
