San Diego Comic-Con will bring Star Wars collectors straight into the eye of the Stormtrooper.
The first wave of toys from this December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut at the annual geekosystem July 9-12, and today Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive reveal of three playthings that take inspiration from the redesigned white armor of that galactic army.
More toys will be announced as the Dec. 18 movie approaches, but for now Lucasfilm has chosen to keep Daisy Ridley’s desert scavenger Rey, Oscar Isaac’s X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron, and homeward bound Han Solo and Chewbacca at bay in the toy department in favor of showcasing the sleek and sinister stylings of the First Order Stormtroopers.
Although John Boyega’s runaway soldier Finn isn’t unmasked in any of these toys, this is his team – at least at the start. We don’t know much more about the First Order, their position of power within the galaxy, or who (or what) gives them marching orders. But this trio of playthings will give fans a way to flex their imaginations, as Star Wars toys have always done.
Check out the gallery for what’s in store.
