First Order Storm Trooper

1/12th scale

price 2,592 yen
Bandai are continuing their 1/12th figure range with the new First Order storm trooper. The snap together kit can be built up unpainted but we think the traditional glue and paint method will make this into a cool looking model – Don’t know too much about the First order?
In the years that followed the battle of Endor and the fall of the Galactic Empire, the break-off movement called the “First Order” emerged, inspired by the principals of the fallen government and led by former officers of the Empire. 
The First Order was active approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor, and fought against the Resistance. Just like the Empire – the First Order employed the use of stormtroopers, including variants such as flametroopers and snowtroopers.
The new model storm trooper featured in "The Force Awakens" has a slightly slipstreamed body armour look. And this model can be posed in most positions for you to use wherever you want. 

Here are some mock up views of the new storm troopers from the movie
The new Bandai kit in 1/12th scale comes with a bunch of optional parts, a small display base that can be joined to another trooper to make your own army in perfect ranks!
