Hot Toys unveils their newest figure from The Clone Wars!
When Hot Toys revealed their Captain Rex figure, they also announced they would make more characters from Emmy-award winning series Star Wars The Clone Wars and now they have unveiled a first look at Anakin Skywalker! There are four different versions – Anakin & STAP, Anakin & STAP bonus edition, Anakin, Anakin bonus edition.
Yes, your eyes haven’t deceived you, you can get Anakin with a STAP! Obviously, as you can guess this version will be expensive. As for the difference between basic and bonus edition, it’s the poncho that he was wearing in season 1 in the episode ‘Downfall of a Droid.’ Nevertheless, whatever version you choose, you’ll get plenty of accessories!
During the assault of B’omarr™ Monastery, Anakin Skywalker™ begins the difficult ascent up the sheer cliff with battle droids firing down on him, and droid-piloted STAP™’s racing into combat, laser cannons blasting. Casualties are mounting, so Anakin makes a daring move. He leaps into the air to take command of a STAP and disposes of battle droids with his lightsaber, clearing a path to the summit. Today Hot Toys is very excited to recreate the exciting scene with the highly anticipated 1/6th scale Anakin Skywalker and STAP collectible set from Star Wars: The Clone Wars™! The highly-detailed collectible figure is specially crafted based on the debut appearance of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animation series, featuring a skillfully crafted head sculpt, meticulously tailored costume and a set of beautifully designed armor guards for alternative styles. His signature LED light-up lightsaber, a number of interchangeable hands, a thermal detonator, a hologram projector and several hologram figures representing Ahsoka Tano™, Yoda™, and Obi Wan Kenobi™ round out the set so you can take on the droid armies. Embodying extraordinary workmanship and remarkable high quality details, the 1/6th scale STAP measuring at approximately 32cm in height, features phenomenal paint application on the precise mechanical design with specially applied weathering effects, drive turbines with LED light-up function, articulated grip, foot pedals, steering vane, and a specially designed figure stand. A Special Edition available in select markets will include a grey colored poncho with weathering effects as bonus item exclusively for collectors. Don’t pass up on the chance to add the new Anakin Skywalker and STAP collectible set to your Star Wars collection.
The figure has a first estimated release for 2021. And as the images tease an Obi-Wan Kenobi and 501st Clone Trooper are coming soon!
