The official Star Wars Celebration site has updated today announcing that the next Celebration is scheduled for 2019. No dates are given but if you’re a “planner”, you can start your preparations now.
On today’s episode of The Star Wars Show, the hosts revealed that Kotobukiya will be offering an exclusive Triple Zero (000) and BT-1 set of ARTFX+ statues at this year’s Star Wars Celebration. Like previous exclusives, this set includes a commemorative coin. You can preorder the set as well as R5-D4, R4-M9 and R2-X2 now at Kotous.com.
PROS: A marked improvement over the “Home Entertainment” set released for The Force Awakens, this set features 3 new figures with excellent sculpting and paint. Edrio and Saw are brand new for this set and are the most detailed of the 4 figures. Saw Gerrera is the highlight though featuring the most complex sculpt and a great likeness to Forest Whitaker. There are no superfluous pack-in weapons to clutter the set.
CONS: The benefits far outweigh the negatives for this set as repacking Jyn seems like an overcompensation to correct the “Where’s Rey” issues from 2015. It’s also unfortunate that this is the only to get Saw Gerrera and Edrio Two Tubes, but obviously better than not getting them at all.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
