How To Make Your Own Star Wars Z-6 Riot Control Baton
By now we've all seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens a billion times, right? One character that isn't even one of the main characters has become an a recent Internet meme of his own, and not I'm talking about the Kylo Ren emo Twitter.

Stormtrooper dubbed TR-8R (his only line in the movie is "Traitor!") with his now trademark Z-6 Riot Baton goes toe-to-toe with Finn in a quick lightsaber fight. It's a rarity that we find a trooper unafraid of a lightsaber, but it seems the First Order has found the technology able to match it.
