Hey fellow collectors, I know you probably have already seen the new Star Wars 1/6th scale figures announced last week, but I figured we should have something on them to talk about on tomorrow’s show, so here we are.
Anyway, last week both Hot Toys and Sideshow unveiled glamour shots for new 1/6th scale Star Wars action figures from The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars franchises. We finally got confirmation that Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker would be getting a Mando inspired figure – in two different bundles, while we also got more images for Sideshow’s TCW infused Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
I will say that after seeing the new Luke I do think I have to get the Deluxe for that damaged Dark Trooper, but also for Luke himself. He definitely has a different look than the ROTJ Hot Toys Luke, and his cloak appears to be black and not brown. Plus, he has moveable eyes like a few of the recent Maul releases, so those are additional upgrades from the Jedi version of this figure.
He will come in a Standard and Deluxe offerings with both having a Sideshow exclusive bonus item. You can pre-order him today from Sideshow.
The Anakin and Obi-Wan figures were teased a few months ago, but now we can see more of the figures and their accessories. Both retail for $255 and do look animation accurate, but I’m not sure if that’s an aesthetic most fans will go for. Anakin looks much better than Obi-Wan, but both seem a bit off. This is especially the case with their frail and tiny looking hands, but even with the wonkiness, these two haven’t completely fallen off of my radar.
