Originally teased in December 2014, the Darth Vader figure was officially revealed earlier this month, and will feature a number of unique features and accessories. For example, Vader will come with a specially crafted sound effect function that will replicate the Sith Lord’s iconic breathing sound, as well as his red lightsaber with LED-lighted functionality! The figure, which will stand at nearly 14″ tall, will also come with alternate hands, an Interrogator Droid from A New Hope, as well as a special stand made to resemble the halls of the Death Star.

With Star Wars: Episode VII coming to theaters in late 2015, excitement over the Star Wars franchise has been high, with a variety of companies announcing new merchandise based on the original STar to coincide with the film’s release. Hong Kong based figure company Hot Toys has unveiled the first two figures in their upcoming Star Wars line of 1/6th scale figures: the unforgettable smuggler duo, Han Solo and Chewbacca!

Hot Toys recently acquired the rights to produce Star Wars merchandise earlier this summer, and these two figures are the pioneers of their new 1/6th and 1/4th lines. With an unprecedented attention to detail, both figures capture every last detail, from Harrison Ford’s young likeness from the original 1977 film, to even recreating Chewbacca’s thick hairy coat with a realistic brown fabric! Both figures are scheduled to include their own set of accessories; Chewbacca will come with his Wookie bowcaster and satchel, while Han Solo will feature swappable hands, laser pistol, and even blaster rifle and Stormtrooper belt with select retailers.
