Yesterday, we put up our in hand gallery (click here if you missed it) of the Star Wars Black Series First Order Stormtrooper SDCC Exclusiveand today we have him all out of the box for a new image gallery. Check out the gallery below. FYI – there is no way to remove this guy cleanly without ruining the package and cutting some tape and bands, but if you take your time, you can clip the small rubber bands on his arms and slide his feet out, and you can put him back in with just the 2 clips at the base of the feet and he can still stand okay for display.
It was awesome to be able to hold the first toy from The Force Awakens in my hands. He is a great figure (like all the 6″ Black Series) and will be a great addition to your collection. You can pick him up at SDCC in a few weeks and at Hasbro Toy Shop after the show. We want to send a big THANK YOU to the team at Hasbro and Hunter PR for sending us this early sample to share with you!
A week from today we will kick off our 2014 coverage of San Diego Comic Con with images and news from the show! We will be meeting with Gentle Giant, Sideshow, eFx, Kotboukiya, Hasbro, Qmx, Diamond and many others on our trip and want to make sure we ask them what YOU want to know!
Submit any questions you would like us to ask before 7/18 and we will do our best to get you an answer. Email them to Yodasnews@gmail.com with the subject like SDCC QUESTIONS.
We just got our 1 on 1 with Hasbro booked, which has been a hot topic since NYTF so be sure to send us all your Hasbro burning questions, and we will ask them for you! Click here to see our video 1-1 with them last year!

Jek Tono Porkins was a trader and pilot from Bestine IV who, along with the other Bestines, was forced to abandon his homeworld when the Galactic Empire chose it as the site of a new military base. Seeking the opportunity to strike back at the Empire, Porkins joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic. After completing pilot training, he was assigned to Red Squadron and given the call sign Red Six. He fought heroically, but was killed in action over the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin.
