Don’t bother spending your weekends scouring toy stores for hard-to-find Star Wars figures. Nothing on the shelves at Toys ‘R’ Us can even begin to compare with Hot Toys’ new First Order Stormtrooper from its Life-Size Masterpiece Series. Standing over six-feet tall it’s easily the most impressive Star Wars figure ever created.
It comes with sculpted armour and a helmet that have been given a high-gloss white paint finish and a blaster replica in its hands for extra intimidation. It’s a little disappointing that for a penny shy of $US8000 ($10,497) it has zero points of articulation, and the armour can’t be removed so you can play dress-up. But not even a classic ’80s Boba Fett figure with a rocket that still fires is as impressive.
