Hot Toys Officially Announces 1/4 Scale Boba Fett (ROTJ)

HT_fett-QTR_scale

The ink was barely dry from our previous report when Hot Toys released official imagery and details for their 1/4 Scale Boba Fett Figure via Facebook.

The name “Boba Fett” is no stranger to all Star Wars fans. With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. Following the introduction of Hot Toys’ Star Wars 1/6th scale collectible figures, today we are very excited to officially reveal Boba Fett as the first collectible figure of Hot Toys’ Star Wars 1/4th scale collectible series!

The highly-accurate quarter-scale collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi featuring finely sculpted Boba Fett helmet and armor, his signature jetpack, highly detailed weapons, accessories, and a specially designed sail barge figure stand all with skillfully-applied distressed effects. A special edition will be available for selected markets and include a blaster sidearm with holster which Boba Fett has in Star Wars: Episode V Empire Strikes Back.

New Hot Toys Stormtrooper or Something More?

Images have been hitting the various social media feeds out there but this one in particular is quite interesting. Hot Toys’ Secret Base has on display a couple of licensor-pending sixth scale Stormtroopers but note the different heights? Could we in fact be getting a Han and Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise as well?

6″ TBS Yoda Lacks Knee Articulation

HT_TBS_yodapanel

According to this image courtesy of Hot Toys, it appears that the upcoming Black Series Yoda (#06) doesn’t feature articulation in the knees. Hot Toys lists the figures as having 22 points of articulation (and you thought we were crazy for breaking down the joints like that) while a figure like the 6″ Clone Trooper has 29 POA.

Click the image above for a closer look at that the pose in the bottom left corner. Disappointing this is.
