The First Order General is a minifigure released in 2018 as part of the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens subtheme. It was released as a special promotion.

Description

The minifigure has a pretty simple design, but has an exclusive torso design. The torso has a simple black coat design, with a black belt and silver belt buckle. The arm also has exclusive printing on the bottom half, with a rank placard on the sleeve. The hands are black and the leg piece is completely black. The First Order cap only appears in one other set, 75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle.

Background

General was a high-level military rank, often denoting the commander of an army. It was widely used among the armed forces of both major galactic powers and more localized militaries.

Generals were typically senior officers posted to command ground troops, special operations forces, and starfighter commands. The rank normally didn't exist among spacefaring navies, where the comparable rank of Admiral was used instead. Specialized divisions within large fleet organizations, however, retained the rank of general. The First Order also had this rank, but it also did not use generals in the navy. However, General Hux and his father Brendol Hux both attained the rank of general in the First Order. There were other generals in the First Order too.

Notes

  • The minifigure was released in a special May 4th promotion for 2016.
