Hot Toys has announced three new Star Wars Rogue One sixth-scale figures to go along with their previously revealed Death Trooper Specialist figure.
The Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, Shoretrooper, and Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper will join Hot Toys’ Movie Masterpiece Series late this year / early next year.
ROGUE ONE DARTH VADER
Hot Toys’ second Darth Vader figure, the Rogue One Darth Vader figure stands nearly 14 inches tall and has over 30 points of articulation. The figure has nine interchangeable gloved hands, which appear to be an upgrade to those included with the Star Wars
version of Vader. Like the ANH
Vader, the figure’s belt has a LED light-up function, but the chest apparatus does not. An unlit lightsaber hilt comes with the figure as does a figure stand with double-sided Death Star themed background. Vader is priced $249.99–$50 less than his predecessor–and is scheduled for release betweem Jan. amd Mar. 2017.
ROGUE ONE SHORETROOPER
The Hot Toys Rogue One Shoretrooper is one of the newest Imperial specialists in the Star Wars
lore. The figure is based on the amphibious troopers on the tropical Scarif system in Rogue One
and features weathered armor that resembles the Biker Scout armor seen in Return of the Jedi
. The Shoretrooper figure has over 30 points of articulation, includes six different interchangeable hands and comes with a blaster rifle. A figure stand with backdrop is also included with the figure, which is priced $204.99. Like Vader, the figure is scheduled for release between Jan. and Mar. of 2017.
ROGUE ONE STORMTROOPER JEDHA PATROL
The Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper is a variation of the Rebellion’s familiar foe. Slight changes in the armor differential the Rogue One
Stormtroopers from their original trilogy brethren and Hot Toys has translated these differences to their latest version of the Stormtrooper. The Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper has a completely new helmet and armor, and a newly developed under-suit to go along with an updated white pauldron and survival backpack. The figure comes with eight different interchangeable hands and is armed with a heavy blaster rifle. A flashlight / torch comes with the figure, as does a stand with backdrop. The Hot Toys Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper is expected to arrive either before or right around the time of the theatrical release of Rogue One
between Oct. and Dec. The figure is priced $219.99.
