40391 First Order Stormtrooper is a Brick Sketches Star Wars set that was released on June 15, 2020.

Background

Stormtroopers, also known as First Order stormtroopers or "bucketheads," were the infantry soldiers of the First Order. As the latest evolution of one of galactic history's most distinctive symbols of military might, the First Order's infantry units were outfitted with stark white armor derived from that worn by the Galactic Republic's clone troopers and the Galactic Empire's identically named elite shock troops. To ensure absolute loyalty and conformity, First Order troopers were identified by alphanumeric designations instead of individual names and programmed from birth through regular exposure to state-controlled propaganda. Ultimately, members of this new generation of stormtroopers were trained to serve one purpose—conquering the galaxy in the name of the First Order.

The First Order Stormtrooper Corps was formed during the New Republic Era, following the collapse of its Imperial-era predecessor in the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War. Though the Galactic Concordance banned the mobilization of stormtroopers, the First Order secretly began its own stormtrooper program under the supervision of General Brendol Hux and Captain Cardinal, and later General Armitage Hux and Captain Phasma. Throughout its time, the program was centered on training human conscripts from early childhood. During the Cold War between the First Order and the New Republic, stormtroopers were presented as a territorial protection force. After the destruction of the New Republic capital, their true nature as the First Order's invasion army was revealed, leading to open war against the Resistance.
