Since the announcement of Hot Toys’ 1/6th scale Star Wars line of figures at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, along with the reveal of the first two figures in the line, Han Solo and Chewbacca, toy fans around the world have been excited to see what the Hong Kong based collectible company will release next. Not ones to disappoint, Hot Toys helped celebrate the new year with the announcement of the latest figure in the 1/6th Star Wars line: Darth Vader himself!


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.


Also joining the lineup is the new 1/4th scale figure of Boba Fett! Revealed in late December, Boba Fett will stand at an impressive 18″ tall, and comes with swappable hands, screen-accurate cloth details and armor damage, and a multitude of weaponry and accessories, including a stand designed after Jabba the Hutt’s barge. Both figures will be made available later this year, giving Star Wars fans a chance to get excited for Episode VII: The Force Awakens in December!

The S.H. Figuarts line is known for their high-quality line of collectable figures, and have partnered with many characters and franchises like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, and even Daft Punk to bring fans miniature versions of their favorite characters. Now, with “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” gearing up for release next year, Bandai has partnered up with the classic franchise to bring us reproductions of some of our favorite Star Wars characters! The first wave of figures in this brand-new line will be Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper, with other figures planned for release at later dates, including Han Solo and Luke Skywalker in both his “A New Hope” clothes as well as his “Return of the Jedi” costume! These figures, like other toys in the Figuarts series, will feature screen-accurate details, extensive articulation, and a variety of accessories and swappable parts, including alternate hands, Darth Vader’s lightsaber, and the Stormtrooper’s iconic blaster rifle! Both of these figures will release in 2015, with no known plans for release in the United States as of yet. Stay tuned for more cool figures and Bandai releases until then!
