Sideshow has opened preorders for the Hot Toys 1:6 Scale Rey (Resistance Outfit) figure.
Sideshow has revealed their long-awaited 1:6 scale Dengar: Bounty Hunter figure. Look for an official preorder announcement soon.
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.
Sideshow is now taking preorders for the Hot Toys 1:6 Scale Battlefront Jumptrooper figure.
Known to use the jump pack to gain high ground, the highly-accurate Jumptrooper Sixth Scale Collectible Figure features a finely crafted Jumptrooper armor and helmet with weathering effects, a magnetically-attached jetpack with life-like thruster fire accessores, detailed heavy blasters and scout blaster, and a specially designed sand-themed dynamic figure stand ideal of aerial poses.
Sideshow once again double dips on a previous release and re-issues their 1:6 Scale Bossk figure now with a “new movie-accurate portrait”. If you own the first ($159.99) this new sculpt will cost $50 more.
I don’t need this scum.
Sideshow Collectibles has revealed the Imperial Stormtrooper as their next Legendary Scale figure. Look for a preorder announcement soon.
Hot Toys has fully revealed their upcoming sixth scale Movie Masterpiece Series Han Solo and Chewbacca figures from The Force Awakens. Head on over to their Facebook page to check them out!
Sideshow has updated their blog revealing the details surrounding their new version of the IG-88 Sixth Scale figure. This version features a new movie accurate paint scheme, three newly sculpted concussion grenades, fabric bandolier, BlasTech E-11 Blaster, and DLT-20A Blaster Rifle. Preorder open this afternoon for $199.99.
Despite the majority of retail outlets being devoid of new products on shelves, there are still a few surprises as online retailers are receiving a “new” 6″ version of Rey – which may be just different enough to make you mad/sad. Funko continue to promote like no other brand as teases for the next Smuggler’s Bounty box have sparked some discussion of potential for new characters. The biggest (and most spendy) news of last week was the announcement of an ultra-high end tier of prop replicas from Propshop – the manufacturer responsible for the very same screen used props in The Force Awakens. And finally, we close out Episode #99 with a few new acquisitions to tide us over until the next “must-have” item comes along.
