Disney Store is celebrating Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens with a line of die cast figures based on the film. These figures were released back on The International Star Wars event on September 4th, which was also called Force Friday and the day that all of the new movie toys had hit. Also included in the die cast assortment from Disney are Captain Phasma, Finn, Rey & BB-8, Kylo Ren, the First Order Stormtrooper, and the First Order Flametrooper.
Finn is one of the new heroes that will be introduced in the film and the figure is based on the likeness of Actor John Boyega. Finn originally had served the Empire as a Stormtrooper in the First Order thirty years after the Battle of Endor. After being stranded on the desert planet of Jakku, Finn’s conscience brought him to a more heroic path, where he now helps fight Kylo Ren and the First Order.
Thank you to Disney and The Disney Store for providing the Finn exclusive Die Cast figure to us to review.
Availability: September 2015
Finn stands at 6 1/2″ tall and made with die cast, which makes the figure heavier compared to other materials such as plastic. The figure is also made with some plastic parts such as the jacket and blaster. The body such as the head, torso, arms, and legs are made with die cast parts.
His head sculpt features more of a basic tooling than compared to being digitally scanned, as that would have brought out additional details to the actors likeness. There is also the issue that Finn cannot hold the blaster in both hands, and an arm cannot cross over the body.
The base is made of flimsy plastic and sometimes may have difficulty supporting the figure depending on the position he’s left standing. There is only one peg hole on Finn’ feet and one peg on the stand. The base does have some carvings sculpted on including the Star Wars logo.
The back of Finn’s back have holes including on the figures legs, triceps, buttocks, and likely his back under the jacket that is showing metal screws in place that were put there to assemble the figure.
He has a decent amount of articulation including a ball jointed head, ball-hinged shoulders, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed hips, hinged knees, and hinged ankles.
Finn offers a lot of value for the MSRP price of $24.99 USD. He is a nicely detailed and accessorized figure and a very nice sculpt.
