Once again we’re seeing toys spoil a movie and this Force Friday II event has a small detail of what we can expect of the Executioner Stormtrooper in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘. This isn’t a direct spoiler of a scene, but you can pretty well guess as to who it is going to be related to. Obviously, if you want to go in blindly than head back now but I wouldn’t worry too much about this one.
Due to an early listing on eBay we’ve found out a small but important tidbit about this new character. It sounds like the Executioner Stormtrooper has the job in the First Order of just taking care of anyone who is disloyal to their command. You can pretty much tell that this means that they’ll be going up directly against John Boyega’s Finn here.
According to the toy’s package:
“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.”
It sounds like Finn is either going to be captured and have to deal with this guy or that they’ll be chasing him down. There were two of these Executioner Stormtroopers in a recent behind-the-scenes clip from ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ from the D23 Expo in July, so it doesn’t sound as if Finn will have just one to contend with.
You can take a look at the toy itself below:

It would appear that just as real executioners of old seem to use axes as their weapon to take someone’s life that an electrical version is utilized by this class of Stormtroopers.
Are you looking forward to seeing these Executioner Stormtroopers on the big screen this Winter? How many of them do you believe Finn will have to contend with to get away with his life? Share your thoughts below!
