Not gonna lie, this guy was more badass than Phasma
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, the only stormtrooper to ever kick a main character's ass
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, I really felt like Phasma should have been the one fighting Finn in this scene. It would have made her 100x more bada$$, and it would have made the scene with her later feel less tacked on.
@Jordanv, yes, this is exactly how I feel.
She seemed like she was just...
Just there, and not much else
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, if this movie was a game, he'd be a mini,boss or that guy that shows up with the other grunts
@Jordanv, I feel like Phasma will be like Boba Fett, doesn't really do anything but ends up being everyone's favorite character
@Jordanv, *Lucas buys starwars again, CGIs trooper to be phasma*
@MexicanPastry , Captain PhasMarketing
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, i only liked phasma cause shes played by brienne tarth (got)
@Jordanv, but also she would have died
@DustMonkey, They could have had her get shot in the shoulder with Han's gun, instead of right in the chest with Chewie's crossbow of death. Easy switch. Scene stays awesome; Phasma had something cool to do in Episode 7.
@Jordanv, yeah that could be cool
@Jordanv, It's setup for SW8, though. After what happens I'm betting she'll be back and pretty pissed. Just my spoiler-free 2¢.
@YouJustLostTheGame, I know she'll be in the sequels, I just think it would have been a really easy way to include her a little more in Episode 7. But you're right; Once the whole trilogy is released, I think we'll be happy with all of the character's screen times. Well, hopefully.
@Pssst, you a genius
@dr cocktopuss, Another one
when i saw him take out his weapon i was like daaaamn
@HereComesHell69, I think I was the only person to wonder why he has that in the first place. Like how did the any of the leaders expect to encounter a Jedi one day? The only person who was known to have it was Ren and Luke is hidden
@HomosexualSayWhat, I made sure not to add spoilers 😂
These are the ingredients to create the perfect little storm trooper!
As the great DJ Khaled once said: "You loyal, I appreciate that."
@AT Zero , holy jeeeeeezus yes to this underrated master comment
Sick spins, bro.
I was thinking about this... Why couldn't Luke's lightsaber cut through this thing?
Needs for an awesome scene?
(In,my opinion, I think you know who should've been beaten in,this scene cause of (gender pronoun) experience with the lightsaber
Which is none
@NowYouHaveEbola, did you watch the prequels? Grievous' guards had similar weapons, they use beams instead, making them able to counter lightsabers. Theirs were staves, but this is a tonfa.
@NowYouHaveEbola, to me the question is, why would you carry this thing around in the first place? On the off chance that you'd run into the galaxies last Jedi? As if he'd have a chance against someone who had a lightsaber AND could use the force.
@Tyrantrum, I have watched the prequels, i even OWN the prequels, I just pretend they aren't part of the Star Wars universe
@Sarcastic Wombat, it seems like more of a taser weapon. Maybe on the ridiculously off chance they wanted to take a prisoner
@Sarcastic Wombat, I read somewhere that these weapons are for specially trained riot control troopers. They are meant to intimidate and bring order to crowds. They also have the ability to bounce light sabers, because electricity and badassery. Definitely fact check me, but I remember reading that on some website.
What is his weapon called? I couldn't find it online.
@Morty, i second that. Im curious too
@Morty, it's some kind of baton by the looks of it, the material I forget what it is called though
@Morty, The Fvck Bringer... idk, but I wants it
@King Deadpool, yes. This is the name we will all use. I don't even need to know the real name anymore. You have satisfied me.
@Morty, Gravity hammer
@Morty, I don't know what star wars calls it, but weapons of that shape are called Tonfas. A tonfa is a baton with a perpendicular handle sticking out of its side.
@ archiethesailor, yes. That sounds about right. I just wanna know if they had a particular name for it. Thanks for the identification, though!
@Morty, Oh, I looked it up. It looks like it's called a z6 riot control baton. My source is the star wars wiki.
@ archiethesailor, thank you! It's not as cool as I thought, but appropriate.
@Morty, Yep, a boring name for a cool weapon. I'd suggest naming that specific one, but only cvnts do that.
Source:Game of Thrones.
@Morty, a more important question is, why would they train the stormtroopers against lightsabers if the only lightsaber that's been seen in the past 30 years was Kylo Rens'?
@Morty Smith, I also thought of that, but the even more important question is, WHY ARE THERE TWO OF US!
@Morty, alternate dimensions
@Phil Tippet, you mean like... Jurassic Park!?
@Morty Smith, Lightsaber fighting wasn't standard training. Everyone laughed at this guy, telling him that he was wasting his time training to fight lightsabers. But he had his moment, he showed all those naysayers.
@Morty, actually 3, I was the first to come to this dimension of posting and then I think you two joined
@Mortimer Smith Sr, I was actually disguised as numerous people throughout history. You may remember "It's super effective..." or, more recently "totally not bigfoot"
I was there for the rise of MACWE and Invalid chicken. Alas, Jamal went to the store less than a week before my arrival. If you were before me, great respect is owed to you. If not, there can only be ONE TRUE MORTY!
@Morty, @Morty, I was around since 2009/10 so was there for them just never made an account until recently as PC bro from AZ state but then after getting a new phone 3 or 4 months back all I know is no other Mortys that I noticed were around when I decided to do this name lol
@Mortimer Smith Sr, lol! I think we made these at about the same time, then. I like the fact that there are multiple mortys in the show itself, because it makes having multiple on FP even more ironic.
@Morty, true, let's hope someone does evil Morty though and evil Rick lol
I don't get the loyalty thing
This trooper ain't loyal
