The First Order Stormtrooper Executioner was released exclusively at Target stores on September 1, 2017
For this release, Hasbro repainted the basic First Order Stormtrooper figure and made some slight changes to the helmet design
This time around the helmet has a black stripe on the dome, silver highlights on both sides and a more distinctively painted frown
The shoulder bells are painted black with the First Order symbol and the pouches on the left side of the belt are painted all black
There were no blasters included with this figure, but Hasbro included the executioner staff
The staff consists of 4 parts, the main staff, 2 removable blue electric fields and a removable top claw
The claw on the bottom of the staff is permanently attached
Both claws, the top and bottom one, are articulated and can be opened or closed
The two blue electric force fields can be attached to the claws, giving it the appearance of an executioner staff "in use"
Unfortunately, the staff is made ouf of very soft plastic and bends easily (to a point where it can look deformed)
There is no head underneath the helmet
The First Order Stormtrooper Executioner has no balancing issues and the figure is able to grab the executioner staff well with both hands
The First Order an only operate effectively with the absolute loyalty of its followers. Should any soldier be found guilty of treason, it is up to this special branch of Stormtroopers to dispense final justice.
