Hot Toys reveals their first Clone Wars collectible figure with Captain Rex.
On May the 4th, Hot Toys announced they would be doing figures from Emmy-winning animated series Star Wars The Clone Wars and today they revealed a detailed first look at their Captain Rex figure!
Clone Captain Rex served the Republic during the Clone Wars, often taking orders from Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. He viewed military service as an honor, and he always completed his mission. Fond of using two blaster pistols at the same time, Rex customized his armor with distinctive blue markings. His loyalty to the Republic and his Jedi Generals was absolute, but even this dedicated veteran soldier found himself plagued by doubts as the Clone Wars claimed more lives and brought ruin to more worlds. Today Hot Toys is very excited to expand its stunning collectible series to Star Wars: The Clone Wars and introduce the 1/6th scale collectible figure of Captain Rex! The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of Clone Captain Rex in the acclaimed animation series featuring meticulously crafted and finely detailed recreation of Rex’s distinctive Clone Trooper armor and helmet, interchangeable head sculpt with amazing likeness, skillfully applied weathering effects, his signature dual blaster pistols as well as a blaster rifle, a detachable jetpack, an Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper helmet, and a figure base! Initiate your Hot Toys Star Wars: The Clone Wars collection today!
Pre-orders will open in the coming days for a first estimated 2021-2022 release but as always with Hot Toys, dates can very often change.
