Build Report: First Order Stormtrooper

Since I built the Parisian Restaurant over the holidays, I couldn’t really justify putting together another massive LEGO set so soon, even though I wanted to do something to celebrate completing the first draft of my most recent novel. Luckily, my sister- and brother-in-law gave me this weird dude for my birthday. I was actually pretty excited about it, because there was no way I was going to buy one of these poseable figures, and this way I still got to experience putting one together.

First Order Stormtrooper (75114): 81 pieces

This was an incredibly quick build that I actually did in bed while my husband watched Dragon Ball Super and I held a cat on my lap. Most of the tiny LEGO bits are used to construct the two blasters, while the figure herself (because mine’s totally a bad-ass chick who was abducted as a young child and now emulates the escaped Stormtrooper known as Finn and is merely biding her time to make her own way out into the galaxy…but I digress) is made of movable joints that you attach the armor to.

It’s a little odd that the rear of the figure lacks as much armor. The better for Sabine to take her out, I suppose (at least until JL-1231 rips off her helmet and asks for Sabine’s help to escape, which Sabine absolutely does despite Kanaan’s misgivings, and I know I’ve made my timelines wonky, but I don’t care).
