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

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.

Toyguide Update: 15-pc. Blind Box Trading Figure Assortment

blind_box_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with a unique entry into 2013 “Darth Vader” Collection line of products. Collectors in Japan, courtesy of the Hot Toys/Hasbro partnership, are able to purchase an assortment of blind box “mystery” figures which pull characters from the first waves of Saga Legends and Mission Series sets.

At first look, you may think there is nothing really “new” here but, unlike their carded counterparts in most areas of the world, each of these figures also include a display base/stand similar to what came with the figures in the Saga Collection. The case itself is able to be converted into a shelf display and includes one of each figure.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself if these are something worth adding to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.
