This year's Force Friday is on its way, and it seems like a new Star Wars: The Last Jedi toy leak has just revealed new info about a new class of First Order stormtrooper, the First Order Judicial.
A number of reports regarding a new stormtrooper called The Executioner has been making the rounds online, and a new Hasbro Black Series Figure toy leak on Reddit reveals that the trooper turns out to be a First Order Judicial. With the black matte line running across his helmet and his intimidating batton, the First Order Judicial reminds Star Wars fans of the TR-8R that faced off with Finn (John Boyega) in The Force Awakens. Here's the character description of the stormtrooper that can be found at the back of the figure's box:
"The First Order can 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."
While it's uncertain whether the First Order Judicials will go by other nicknames like The Executioner in The Last Jedi, we're hoping that this intimidating trooper will get some kick-ass scenes in the upcoming sequel trilogy installment. This would probably raise the stakes for the franchise's First Order deserter, Finn, especially since the former stormtrooper's going undercover with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) in the film.
