Please use this thread to discuss any potential Finn figures that we may see in the TLJ toyline.

looking at the artwork on the box it looks like Finn is not that much different from the TFA Finn (with the exception of a white shirt instead of black). of course it's too early to say but I think we are all over the amount of Finn figures that were released for TFA. I think I have close to 10+ Finn action figures.

Maybe they'll re-use Han's torso and then put the TFA Finn jacket and arms on him.

He will probably have an entirely different outfit aside from still wearing Poe's jacket, I bet he has ditched his stormtrooper pants and shoes. Judging by the light colored shirt with open collar, it's entirely possible that he is wearing the same type of rebel uniform that Poe had on for the first half of Episode 7.

Based on the new BTS reel shown at D23 today, Finn looks as though he's got at least four different costumes. Those appear to incude...

-Medical pod clothing
-Resistance uniform (with Poe's old jacket)
-First Order officer uniform/disguise
-Flight suit (yellow - looks like it might be the same flight suit as a Resistance Bomber turret gunner wears)

I can envision the medical pod Finn as a deluxe figure and the flight suit version in some kind of battle pack with a turret accessory like the AOTC Gunship pod battle pack, but it's doubtful we'll get those accessories.

Guess this puts Hasbro in a tight spot on which outfits to make figures of. lol Because we know that they wont all make em all.

the FO disquised finn looks like it'd be ideal for a 2pk. But you know, I kinda recall reading a while back the Hasbro said they may not release a finn in the 1st wave....so I guess that means 50% of figs in wv1 across different lines/assts will be a variations of finn, lol

Let's just hope that figures with helmets will come separate from them this time around. The same goes for the solid color visors. LOL. I avoided two x-wing pilots from TFA because of that paint decision.

Even if they got out of that, they might make it like the recent 5POA Saga Legends Luke X-wing with that atrocious looking helmet.

Depends how he's packed. Finn was expected to be a more popular character than he ended up being, which I think was reflected in the high amount of figures produced. Hasbro may very well have adjusted the production amount this time around. This figure does have a more interesting look compared to the TFA film look though. Probably didn't help that his character got his butt kicked the entire movie in TFA.

This version of Finn is very "Han Solo". Pants are very similar, shirt is exactly the same as Han rotj, similar holster and the jacket is influenced by. Interesting choices. Cool look for him, always hated that he sortof wasn't wearing pants in TFA! Yikes.

Yeah, I don't think you're necessarily wrong in the figure being a potential pegwarmer. The FO disguise would probably sell better since bad guys always have the cooler stuff.

theres no way an imperial officer uniform version would sell anywhere close to his "hero" look. Not even in the same ballpark. That's Toys 101.

Too bad I guess. I wished Hasbro would have tried that 'experiment' with Imperial and Rebel Cassian.

Regardless, I doubt Finn will get mud on his boots this time for Hasbro to justify another variant figure slot to increase sales. :)

oh its definitely not without precedent. Just look at the vintage line. But recently the Jyn imperial disguise figure was a bad leg warmer.

Does he have a pistol in his holster? When they had some promo shots of him he had the holster and looked like he had raided Han's closet (I think this costume for TLJ is much cooler than his TFA stuff) and was carrying a pistol. This figure has that same rifle and the jacket from the last film, but I can't see a pistol.

I'll be skipping this one and waiting for a TVC version. I think the outfit looks better, though.

I had to chuckle about this considering Lando wore Han's clothes at the end of ESB, and there was some news a while back about a TFA puzzle set tin 'hinting' about Finn being Lando's son.....a sort of like father like son moment. :)

You can't really transplant ball-jointed shoulders onto standard swivel shoulders. Not without an enormous degree of engineering.

Maverick10126
08-11-2017, 01:02 AM
You'd have to dremel the torso back quite a bit then create a new socket in the torso for the pin from the ball joint. I'm still trying to find a new shoulder socket insert.

I'm thinking of trying a butt splice for TFA Han. My thought was drill straight through the torso shoulder to shoulder, dremel back the shoulder area, hot glue the butt splice in, trim off the mushroom on the shoulder pin, insert arms, count number of fingers. Donate a little blood towards the custom if I somehow made it through unscathed.

Any one try a butt splice? Any success?

Possibly, the cuffs and jacket bottom are evenly leveled on the TFA figure. The jacket bottom on the TLJ figure is noticeably longer compared to the cuff.

First Order Disguise would have been an awesome change of pace. Even if it's only in one scene, would have been a much more fun and creative choice than this exceedingly bland figure. (not faulting hasbro, the costume choice is so boring, it's like Star Wars 101.)

Deak_Starkiller
08-18-2017, 12:17 AM
To me, maybe the writers aren't thinking out of the box. Sure, he's got military and 'facilities' experience, but they could have made him an honorary recruit with a unique attire or given a uniform from a special forces unit that we didn't get to see before. Regardless, if the writers thought of that, it could have made for a more attractively marketed figure. But no, you're like a Cobra Viper...you start at the bottom of the pyramid, but even Cobra Vipers had cooler uniforms than their Cobra trooper counterparts. :D

Thanks for posting the pic. In the promo shots they show him in that outfit, but he's got a holster and blaster. This figure doesn't seem to come with any of that, yet he's got that gun from the TFA. So, basically he's got a different shirt, boots, and blue pants, but they're packing him with the exact same accessory.

Maverick10126
08-18-2017, 07:04 AM
The outfit brings up one of my bigger issues with the sequel trilogy so far. The resistance compared to the first order. The resistance looks to be even less funded than the rebels were. And the first order, jeez they seem to be quite well off. I get that the republic disbanded their military...but it really doesn't make sense for them to do so. I would have been cool if the republic military was caught completely off guard with how capable the first order is. As it is the first order just kinda does whatever it wants without and trouble. It gives the impression they are still in charge.

I'm hoping TLJ will course correct this a bit.

yeah I hadn't noticed until you said that, it's a shame they didn't give him the holster.

Hopefully we'll see more distinct uniforms aboard the Resistance fleet this time, maybe the equivalent of a Rebel fleet troopers. I can understand the Resistance possibly being less funded, but they should have the same structural division as the Rebellion did pertaining to Special Forces, Intelligence, elite fighter squadron units and the like to have distinct and eye-catching uniforms.

Don't forget Jyn, she shops in the lady's department. Space is a big place, with so many planets. You'd think there's more than one space store. Guess not. Oh well at least Finn was able to snag a pair of transforming sneaker-boots.

(It's not cool, it's proof that Disney doesn't think much of its audience, and instead is trying to sell you formula in place of creativity because they don't expect viewers to have standards).

Are you talking about Lukes ANH outfit? If so its nothing like that! Luke wore a "karate" style Gi, that fully opens. Finns shirt is a v-neck, that doesnt open at all.

I agree that Han, Poe and Cassian wear similar outfits because they are similar characters.

Compared with the TFA Finn, the TLJ Finn has a slightly darker jacket. And both Finns have a darker jacket than the Armor Up Poe.

Compared to a bright blue, Hans jacket (I believe he's referring to the Bespin ESB jacket) looks gray.

Compared to a muted gray or warm gray, Hans jacket looks Blue.

Color is relative. You have to compare it to something else, either more saturated with blue or less blue.

Hans jacket could best be described as a muted blue, or gray blue.

Giving the color a name like "pumpernickel silver" or "toilet paper brown" isn't useful, those are just names people make up to call a color with cartoon by degrees of color temperature, saturation and value.
