Let’s take a closer look at each of the action figures and vehicles available so you can decide which ones to buy as Christmas gifts. But don’t take too long deciding as these are likely to sell out pretty quickly – they’re some of the hottest toys for Christmas 2015!
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Desert Mission Finn
Lots of fans of the Star Wars movies are thrilled about this newest character. There is a lot of speculation and some secrets that are swirling about Finn and his background. What’s known for sure is that he is depicted at some point wearing the armor of a Stormtrooper.
It’s revealed at one point that he was indeed a Stormtrooper, but what he stands for remains to be seen. He is a warrior, however and the figure based on this character will make a great addition to any child’s Star Wars toy collection.
The Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Desert Mission Finn does have a lot of attention paid to the clothes that he’s wearing. Instead of showcasing him in the Stormtrooper attire, the figure is shown wearing civilian clothes.
The action figure toy is wearing the light brown jacket that has red inserts. He’s also dressed in a black T-shirt, a pair of black pants and a pair of white shoes. Now what we know about the character based on the description given on the box is that he’s part of the Desert Mission series.
As a character in the series, his fellow Desert Mission mates are Constable Zuvio and a First Order Flametrooper. These are all sold separately, but you’ll want to make sure that you buy all three of these action figure toys for your child because of how they go together.
When you have all three of these figures and your weapons, what you get are the pieces from each pack that your child can put together. When these pieces are together, they create a bigger, much more formidable weapon than if you just had the one character’s weapon.
When you get the Finn figure, he comes with two pieces. These are a laser gun as well as a tank. The tank has the ability to be able to roll. It’s not that big but it is one of the weapons that’s needed.
It can be taken down and made small enough so that it can be fastened onto Finn’s back. It has an extended piece of molded plastic that allows it to snap into place in the small hole on Finn’s back.
This keeps it firmly in place and it won’t fall off regardless of how much rough play the figure is introduced to. The long pieces of this tank will hang just over the character’s shoulders.
With the tank mounted on his back, it ends up being just slightly larger than a backpack and it kind of looks like one when it’s folded up, too. Finn’s hands are able to hold onto the laser gun as he stands upright. The package comes with an informative instruction booklet that has some bio information in it.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 12-Inch First Order Stormtrooper
The word Stormtrooper is practically a household name. These are the ground troops for the Empire and as soldiers, they’re dedicated and unwaveringly loyal. They can never be swayed from their mission and will move forward regardless of whatever awaits them.
The Star Wars The Force Awakens 12-Inch First Order Stormtrooper is based on the same body style as the original Stormtrooper. And this new design cuts just as an imposing figure as the classic ones do.
Like the older models, this Stormtrooper also wears the tough white body armor. This armor is impenetrable and that’s one of the reasons that these elite troops are such a formidable force to have to fight against.
The armor of the Stormtrooper gives him such protection not only from the weapons of the enemy but from the environment as well. The armor is built with survival in mind. The armor is regulated with temperature control so that whether it’s hot or cold outside, the Stormtrooper will be able to survive and complete the mission at hand.
This tough ability to withstand things is one of the reasons that the enemy will quickly surrender. This 12 inch First Order model comes in a box with some of the Stormtrooper background information printed on it.
From the beginning the Stormtrooper knows how to handle weapons – including the powerful blaster. This figure comes along with one of the blasters. This black and white weapon is molded with excellent detail and looks like the blaster weapon from the movie.
The Stormtrooper only comes with the blaster but he is compatible with other weapons such as one of the pistols. He can grip either of them in his hand. The figure is sturdy and made of tough plastic.
His head is fastened onto a ball joint so not only is that sturdy, but it does have the ability to offer some movement with it. You can turn his head to the left or the right. The arms are also moveable and you can raise or lower them.
This helps kids be able to imagine the Stormtrooper in the middle of battle as he raises his weapon to subdue any enemy he needs to capture. The wrists of the figure do have the ability to swivel so that makes pointing or lowering the blaster or other weapon look more realistic.
He has molded parts on his waist. This is an accessory belt made to look like it’s holding items. He also has a molded detail on the side of his leg. The Stormtrooper is designed in white, but has the same black markings as the original.
You’ll see these markings on the imposing face helmet, shoulders, inner forearm, hands, tops of the legs and the knees. Though it’s meant to be played with, some adults do collect these Stormtroopers.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack
There are fans of Star Wars who enjoy collecting anything related to the film series and then there are kids who want these items because they’re fun to play with. Whatever reason you have for wanting the Star Wars items, you won’t want to miss the Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack.
There’s plenty of fun and adventure to be found with this troop pack. You can uncover exciting worlds where the starships rule the galaxy as you fight the battle between good and evil.
Arriving on the scene after the Empire, the First Order took shape and is determined to rule. It consists of Star Destroyers and a gathering of Stormtroopers ready to take down all that’s good.
With the powerful weapons at their disposal, they won’t be overcome easily. The characters in this 6 pack collection are based on the ones from the Force Awakens and will be the perfect addition to any Star Wars set.
They can be used to recreate moments from the movie as kids battle it out to rule the galaxy. The pack will help kids be able to be the one in charge with the figures that come with the pack.
Kids will receive the Captain Phasma figure with the armor of metal. This character is in charge of the troopers in the First Order. Next, the First Order Stormtrooper is in the pack.
A First Order Flametrooper is included. These have the weapons that can shoot bursts of flames from the ends to end any of their opponents. The Snowtrooper in the set is basically based on a Stormtrooper design, but with some extras.
It’s designed for cold weather in both what it wears as well as its weapon and is quite the force as it goes about the assigned First Order missions. The set also comes with a First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper – the ones who take care of crowd control by any means necessary.
And finally, the First Order Heavy Artillery Stormtrooper comes with the set and will fight to the last breath for the First Order. These action figures are made in the same image as the ones in the movie and come with 14 different accessories such as their new and more lethal weapons to help build your collection. You can purchase the many different sets along with the starships and vehicles to enhance your collection or kids’ play time.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle First Order Snowspeeder
The Star Wars First Order Snowspeeder is a fun toy that’s sure to delight kids and Star Wars fans of all ages and it will be a welcome addition to any collection. The Snowspeeder is designed similar to how it looks in the movie and has a lot of detail.
It does come with one of the Snowtrooper officer figures, which looks somewhat like a Stormtrooper as far as the armor color and some of the details. The eye portion of the figure is different from the original Stormtrooper in that the eye portion is smaller.
The Snowtrooper comes with some accessories. He has a backpack and a blaster gun, which can also be removed during play. His legs bend so he can stand or sit, which means you can have him pilot the Snowspeeder in a natural pose.
His hands are designed so that they can easily grip the controls in the cockpit to make it seem like he really is controlling this spacecraft. One great thing about the cockpit is that the Snowspeeder can hold up two figures at once, so there’s room to play with a friend or just to add another character to whatever imaginative situation your child creates.
When you open the box, you will have to do a little bit of assembling the pieces to make sure that your Snowspeeder looks like the one that’s pictured on the box. However, the assembly shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes and it’s fairly easy to put together.
One of the most exciting features of the Snowspeeder is the mounted missile launcher on the ship. The launcher really works and fires the included missile when you push down on the button.
Another thing to love about the missile launcher is that it’s removable. This means you can use it in the ship or along with some of the other Star Wars’ toys. The only problem with the missile launcher is that only one missile is included, so if you lose the missile, you won’t be able to use the launcher.
Keep this in mind if you’re buying the Snowspeeder for a young child with a tendency to misplace his toys because you can’t buy these missiles separately. Underneath the Snowspeeder is some hidden landing gear.
If you’re a collector, you’ll want to pull the landing gear down to put this impressive ship on display. What many fans of the Star Wars franchise like about the Snowspeeder is the attention to detail from Hasbro.
When you look at the toy up close, you can see twin engines and storage areas. While the storage areas don’t open, it’s easy to see how much thought went into the design of the craft. Both kids and fans agree that the Snowspeeder is one of the most interesting toy vehicles in the Force Awakens product line.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Assault Walker
The bad guys have to have the top of the line in weapons and vehicles if they’re going to squash any sort of uprising. The ground force, known as the Stormtroopers in the movie, know how to quell any kind of resistance so that they can maintain order.
The vehicles these characters have are some of the coolest items in the Star Wars line. Take for example, the Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Assault Walker. Fans won’t ever forget the first time the original Walkers were introduced in the Empire Strikes Back.
Over time, these Walkers have evolved. They get their name from the fact that they walk upright on legs. The legs on this assault walker resemble the legs of a bird with talons on the end of them for the feet.
This set comes with the limited edition Stormtrooper and this design is similar to the original Stormtrooper configuration. This figure is made of white molded plastic with touches of black in some areas.
The white face helmet has the dark sunglasses type design over the eyes. The figure has the plastic molded belt and black gloves. This one also has a black shoulder piece that extends on the right shoulder.
His head is on a ball joint and does have the ability to turn to the left or the right and will pop off if you want to remove it. The figure is well sculpted with plenty of attention to detail.
He comes with a Stormtrooper blaster. The figure can carry the blaster on his side or hold it in his hand. He has the ability to stand on his own and he can fit comfortably in the seat portion of the Walker without falling out.
The Walker has a lot of detail sculpted all over the body as well as the leg portions, plus, it does have moveable joints at the top of the legs, at the knees and at the feet. This gives the vehicle the ability to move forward or backward whenever kids play with it.
The vehicle also has a turret system that’s mounted on the front. This is made of molded plastic, but it has the ability to move. It can turn all the way to the left or all the way to the right, plus it can face forward.
The turret doesn’t have the ability to fire any weapons or missiles and there are no projectiles included with this set. The Walker does have an antenna on the back of it that’s stationary. The color theme of the Walker is the military gray, but it has a camouflage portion in the front of it.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Space Mission Armor Poe Dameron
Fans of the Star Wars franchise will be happy to learn that there’s a 3.75-Inch Figure Space Mission Armor of Poe Dameron available. Poe Dameron is a human pilot that appears in Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.
He’s a leader in the fight against the First Order and he flies the X-Wing space craft. One thing that Star Wars fans like about the Poe Dameron figure is the attention to detail in the character’s face.
He has brown sculpted hair and comes dressed in the clothes that he wears in the movie, which is the tan jacket that has such great detail you can even see the wrinkles, a tan shirt and olive pants.
He also wears brown boots. There is an alternate Poe Dameron figure that does come dressed in his orange flight suit and even though that figure was a great one, too, some collectors were disappointed when they couldn’t remove Poe’s helmet.
Fortunately, that’s not a problem with this version of Poe Dameron. Also included with the package is the armor that Poe Dameron dressed in for the movie. He’s holding his laser gun, so he comes ready to do battle.
The gun isn’t molded to Poe’s hand, so kids can use the weapon with other figures if they want to or give Poe a different weapon to hold. Along with the figure, you’ll also find a single piece suit in the box.
This suit is Poe’s armor. Since Poe is a fighter pilot, his armor consists of a helmet with the Resistance symbol, a face mask, a protective chest shield, and his jet pack, which is visible on the back of the suit.
You can easily snap his armor on or off your character with no trouble so that when he’s not in action, he be able to relax. Both Poe’s arms and legs are able to move, although they have a limited range of motion.
Kids as well as older fans of the Star Wars series can enjoy playing with this character to re-create battle scenes from the movie or they can use the Poe figure to imagine new fight scenes and missions.
Keep in mind that Poe’s figure is one of five characters from the Force Awakens line of Star Wars merchandise. This means that you can collect all five characters for maximum fun.
The Star Wars The Force Awakens Poe Dameron toy is a high quality action figure that any fan of the Force Awakens movie is sure to love. With proper care, this character is sure to last for years to come.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Rey’s Speeder Bike
The characters and the vehicles of the Star Wars franchise haven’t declined in popularity since the very first movie was released. These items retain their popularity because not only are they sought after by collectors, but kids love to play with them.
There are all sorts of things kids can do with them – like setting up epic battle scenes, going on missions or gathering the different toys to recreate the entire galaxy of ships and characters.
The Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Rey’s Speeder Bike is one of the must-have toys for children who love Star Wars. The figure that comes with the set is that of Rey, who is featured in the Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens movie.
The figure is dressed in the loose fitting off white wrap style clothing that’s draped to help protect from the sun and the sand. She wears the short black boots and brown gloves.
Her head is completely covered by a mummy style head wrap with a pair of goggles over the wrap. This piece does not come off the figure. She carries a long staff with her. Her arms do have the ability to move, but they are not bendable.
She does have moveable legs. The figure comes with her trusty speeder like seen in the movie. The ship does have the ability to fire missiles and comes with one missile. Though the top of the vehicle is flat, this is where the missile is fired.
The press of a button causes the top to lift up and then you’ll see the gun cannon. The missile loads easily into the gun and fires. You do want to be careful when you fire the missile, because it does eject rapidly and forcefully.
The missile can be loaded separately into the gun cannon or you can actually leave it in the cannon without firing it. When you push the fire button, the top of the ship will rise quickly and let go of the missile immediately afterward.
The vehicle can easily move across the terrain and the mission of the salvage speeder is to pick up the pieces of ships and other items that have been discarded. There is netting on the side of the ship that holds salvage items and this netting can be taken off.
However, these items do not come off the ship even they are so detailed that they look like separate pieces. The ship itself is extremely realistic in design. There are scuffed areas on it in places that make it look as if the paint has worn off.
This makes it look like a salvage vessel. The fins on the ship are moveable and it has molded jet engines for speed. The figure uses the handlebars to fly the ship and it has a windshield. Her hands can grip the control bar and she fits snugly down into the seat without falling off even if you turn the ship upside down.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle Poe Dameron’s X-Wing
One thing that can be said about Star Wars’ toys is that they offer a lot of attention to detail to make sure the figures, accessories, and vehicles look like the ones shown in the movie.
Another thing that can be said about the toys is that kids love to play with them and they’re in high demand. That’s the case with the Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle Poe Dameron’s X-Wing.
This toy is at the top of the list and you don’t want to miss out on getting one for your child. There’s plenty of adventure to be had for the child who has this toy and it really sparks the imagination.
Whatever mission your child chooses to go on will be full of excitement and adventure with Poe Dameron at the controls. This Resistance pilot flies the X-wing as he soars into action.
The Poe Dameron figure has some pretty amazing detail with the construction of his flight suit, vest, gloves, shoes and helmet. This helmet can be removed from the figure if your child wants to take it off.
The X-Wing comes loaded for a battle with the projectiles. Kids can create epic scenes as they fight in battles with the X-Wing. The vehicle is gray with tan areas and weighs about 2 pounds and has the narrow long nose with front end up support under the nose to hold it up.
The sides of the vehicle feature sturdy wings with large engines and there are exhaust blasters molded on the backs of the engine intake. There are mounts at the ends of each of the wings on the top and bottom for holding the projectiles.
These projectiles easily fit into the spring loaded cannons. The cockpit hatch opens easily for the Poe Dameron figure to be able to slide in and out as needed. He can sit up as if he’s holding onto the flight stick.
He can lean back in the seat and you’ll want the figure to do this when you go to close the cockpit shield. There’s a crank that can lock the S-foils. He has a faithful companion along on all of his exploits into battle.
There’s a droid that sits in the back of the vehicle just past the cockpit. This is a fixed piece so it can’t be taken out. The droid does have a head that can turn. The X-Wing has the ability to fire the missiles and it comes with two accessories. Kids will get the vehicle itself, which is pretty awesome, along with the Poe Dameron figure.

The TIE Fighter is dedicated to his mission and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. The realistic characters, even the villains, are one of the reasons that kids and adults alike love this franchise.
There are some great toys available for any kid who loves the Star Wars series and the Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter is one of these toys.
It contains the cool TIE Fighter Pilot figure along with his vehicle, accessories and projectiles. Because of the small size of the accessories, the set isn’t recommended for any child who’s younger than 4 years old.
The fighter pilots in the special forces were the best of the best that can be found in the First Order. They have the ability to pilot special aircraft that are known for their weapons and abilities to outmaneuver other aircraft.
The TIE craft has better weapons along with sensors that cause it to strike fear in the hearts of any of their opponents. You do have to put the vehicle together, but it’s easy to do.
The wing panels of the craft snap right on and it’s ready to play with in a matter of minutes. These are sturdy and can handle tough play so even if a child bumps them against something, they won’t fall off.
Kids love the awesome design and they’ll have plenty of fun imagining that they’re flying about the galaxy carrying out elite missions from the First Order. The craft can be played with separately from the figure but if they do use it, it slides easily in or out of the cockpit.
Though this set only comes with the one figure, there is room in the vehicle for a second pilot. There is a window in both the front as well as the back of the ship. The ship is built for neutralizing enemy vessels, which it does with ease because of the lasers that it carries.
These lasers can be blasted forward from the gun turrets when they’re fired from the ship and they have a pretty long range. The fighter pilot’s helmet with a face mask is removable, which is one of the reasons why you don’t want to use the set with smaller kids.
It’s a small piece. The helmet does have an oxygen system with it that allows the pilot to be able to breathe. There’s a lot of attention to detail in the creation of the figure and his accessories.
A great thing about these sets is that the majority of them are interchangeable with the weapons and the figures. So kids can create a lot of different scenarios when they play with the other sets that they have.
Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle Elite Speeder Bike
Star Wars is a legendary series and the characters and vehicles of the series can be had in a collection of different figures and vehicle sets. The toys can focus on the good guys or the bad guys, on fighting evil or preserving it.
Some of the classic toys have been remade with better form and more elite weapons while other vehicles and figures are new on the scene. The Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Vehicle Elite Speeder Bike includes a Special Edition Stormtrooper.
This figure sparks the imagination of kids as they entertain images of a galaxy far, far away. This particular vehicle wasn’t made for the characters who were inexperienced. This Speeder Bike takes a trained hand to be able to use it.
It’s built for speed and for handling missions that other vehicles can’t quite take on. If you want to be the baddest of the bad in the galaxy, you have to have the characters and the vehicles to back that reputation up and that’s what this toy does.
It practically owns the galaxy as it zips off on one adventure or another. It can only be handled by a character who understands the potential power it has. After going through an upgrade, the Speeder Bike now boasts better, faster engines that make pursuing an enemy a walk in the park.
At the same time, these engines can allow the Stormtrooper to speed away from other characters who want to try and stop him from completing his mission. The Bike is pretty tough and can easily take on the kind of tough play that kids dish out.
The plastic construction of the toy is top quality and made to last for many years of play. It’s not completely unbendable, though because the pedals and handles on the bike do have some give in them.
This give is what lets the Stormtrooper be able to fit onto the Bike easily. You can adjust the handles and pedals if you have to when you’re putting the Stormtrooper in place. Kids can fit him onto the seat and work his fingers around the Bike’s controls.
The Stormtrooper figure has a lot of detail and is able to bend at both the elbows and the knees. This allows the Stormtrooper to be able to ride low on the Bike if he needs to. The Bike also has plenty of detail on the molded pieces such as a working hood so that kids can see the engine of the Bike.
Along with the Special Edition Stormtrooper figure and the Speeder Bike, this set also comes with an accessory. It’s a great gift for kids 4 years old and up.
