Hasbro Design Director Steve Evans has replied via or Instagram page regarding the complaints of the 6″ Princess Leia figure on display at Celebration Europe.
“the Leia figure shown at SWCE is a pre-production ‘first shot’ and is not final deco. We are addressing the delicacies of lips, eyes and eyebrows. The hood is also not stitched as it will be in final product.”
So it looks like Sideshow is going back to the catalog again as they have revealed a teaser for their “new” 1:6 Scale Han Solo in Carbonite. A version of this figure was available back in 2008 as a sixth scale environment. Look for an official preorder announcement for this piece soon.
The Realm Recap returns this week and we’re in full “con mode” as more and more exclusives have been announced. Hasbro as lifted the veil on theirs with the reveal of three 6″ Black Series items not to mention the return of the Fan’s Choice poll! Hasbro has also shown off some new products that we can expect to see in aisles this fall. Funko and Sideshow/Hot Toys have even more announcements this week with new POP!s hitting stores and preorders going online. Finally, Flyguy and I run down the latest book announcements including Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Life Debt which has clear ties to The Force Awakens. All of this and much more on Episode 101 of The Realm Recap.
Hot Toys is delighted to celebrate this special occasion and is excited to introduce a new exclusive 1/6th scale collectible figure of the beloved Rey in her new Resistance outfit as seen in the epic moment of the film where we meet Luke Skywalker once again.
