STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS SDCC Exclusives Revealed
Yesterday, StarWars.com announced it San Diego Comic Con plans for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, telling us when the panels would be happening and where (sans The Force Awakens panel time). They also announced that EW.com would have the first look at The Force Awakens SDCC exclusives. And to make these past two days even more exciting, Entertainment Weekly has just announced them!

This is no minifig. Lego’s Buildable First Order Stormtrooper has 81 separate pieces that can be assembled into one 9-inch figure with posable limbs. It will be on display only at Comic-Con, and fans will have to wait until January 1, 2016 to purchase their own.

First Order Black Series Stormtrooper

It’s recommended for ages 4 and up, with a pricetag of $24.99.

There’s a Porsche-like vintage Stormtrooper car already out there, along with a Clone Trooper SUV, but this new die-cast model featuring the sleek First Order redesign will be joining the fleet at Comic-Con. That’s just how they roll …
