Star Wars: See the New Stormtrooper Armor in Action Figure Form

Just earlier today, we had a LEGO set of Kylo Ren’s ship leak. Now, it’s time for the First Order‘s stormtrooper from The Force Awakens to get some love. It seems the “Black Series” First Order stormtrooper  has surfaced on, of all places, eBay.

What does it look like?

Wait, I can buy it?

Indeed. At the time of this posting, the figure is at $406.25 with about two days to go.

How do we know this is real?

Well, the simple truth of the matter is that we don’t. The figure could have been manufactured by the seller to be passed off as the genuine article… but it does look fairly convincing. Compare them with the real thing in the picture above and see if it appeals to you.

Now that I’m looking at that photo, the blaster riffle seems a little dark on the figure…

Well, there are three explanations for that. The first is that this is a prototype and they don’t have all the details down yet. The second is that it’s an action figure and they can often skimp on details in order to cut costs. Third is that it’s a fake. The conclusion is up to you.
