Please Please Please!!!
I can hardly contain my escalating excitement at this news!!
though I do worry how much they are going to cost.
They're usually between $175-350 depending on what sort of doll it is. He'll likely be revamping his Tyler Wentworth series. I have no idea if he'll ever get a Star Wars license but his dolls are such that you can customize them.
Does anyone think there is any chance that a Padme or Queen Amidala will be announced for pre-order this week?
I don't know. There's a lot of interest in her. I think Hot Toys just wants to get a bunch of their back ordered stuff out first.
My Deluxe Han Solo from Solo is FINALLY in the mail.
I'm stewing over whether I can afford the Sideshow's Jabba The Hutt. I seriously will kick myself if I DON'T get him. But I really need a new computer and a new car
Adulting is hard when there are great toys that you want!
Tell me about it.
Waiting for my Deluxe Han to arrive any day now and hopped right on that preorder train for Clone Wars Anakin.
Yeah I got the Anakin w/ STAP. Where the hell I'm going to display that is beyond me.
I didn't splurge for the STAP, just got the basic. I'm wondering if his starfighter is actually going to be released- that I would love.
Deluxe Han arrived last yesterday afternoon. I need to get him opened up.
I didn't see the non-STAP version until I'd paid. Even still I probably would've splurged for it. I didn't get the Dark ROTS Anakin so this will be my ultra-deluxe Anakin that I own.
Can't wait for CW General Obi-Wan and Hoth Pilot Luke. I'm hoping Bespin Han will be announced soon!
Hot Toys Boba Fett Comic Con Exclusive edition is up for preorder. Click through to see the information and a gallery on Rebelscum.
Here are the new figures from the Hot Toys lineup for this year

A few quick pics of my new Han Solo
My Leia and Wicket will be here tomorrow!!!!
Today I feel like I won the lottery - my Endor Princess Leia and Wicket set from Hot Toys showed up.
I'm going to be taking extensive photos of this set along w/ my other incarnations of these characters, but on my work break I couldn't control myself and had to open up the package.
It's very hard to express my feelings on this. Although I collect a lot of things, my favorite sie to collect for any figures are 12" scale. I'm female, so that size appeals to me because I also love Barbie. (I like larger 1/4 scale also.)
Leia is great. I now have 5 Hot Toys Leia figures - I'll examine her a bit later. But I had to grab Wicket to give him a full once over.
He's sooooo PERFECT!
I have the Hasbro Wicket from the 90's, the Wicket from Medicom, and of course the Forces of Destiny cartoony 12" scale versions of him. I also have the Gentle Giant Mini-bust of Wicket that is 12" scale. All of these I've liked but I've always felt that they're lacking because they're not furry.
The Hot Toys Wicket is PERFECT. He's adorable. He fits perfectly in your hands. He's soft, fluffy, and he's got detailed little pads on the bottom of his feet. He comes w/ extra furry hands for grabbing stuff. His little arms and legs move and are jointed at elbows and knees so that he can be posed however you want. All of the other Wickets have stiff legs.
I can't wait to photograph my Hot Toys Wicket. He's utterly delightful. Some people might complain that he's not perfectly screen accurate. To me he IS perfect because he's everything that I've ever wanted for a 12" scale Wicket figure and yet he still looks like a TOY.
I've got a Wicket Statue (my mini-bust) - I don't need another statue, I want an adorable fluffy little Ewok that looks like he belongs in the Endor forest. I'm so happy - I really hope Hot Toys pumps out more Ewoks to go with him. I'll get them all.
I LOVE WICKET
He looks great!! I still haven't opened mine yet. I really do love this costume.
I did a thing - put Snowspeeder Luke on Pre-order. This figure is just fantastic. Not sure how I'll display him I like him w/ and without the helmet. I've got a long time to wait to worry about that though - lol.
I am glad that I have the original Bespin 2-pack so whenever they put the single Bespin Luke out I don't need to get it.
I like how dirty and worn Luke’s flight suit and helmet are. The thickness of the suit is just right, it has the appearance of real cold-weather gear without looking too puffy or bulky. Grappling hook is a nice accessory.
