When I first started dabbling into the 12-inch figure front, one of my initial pick ups was Sideshow Collectibles Anakin Skywalker. It never quite captured Anakin’s Revenge of the Sith look as it had dead eyes and a dull expression. Now, with Hot Toys stepping up, I finally have the ROTS Anakin figure I’ve always wanted.
Stepping into the prequels is tricky territory for Hot Toys. Some fans like to hate any and all things prequel so going the ROTS route first is smart. Of all the prequels, that’s the one that begrudgingly has the most appreciation from prequel haters. It also features some of the best looks of the main characters. Hopefully Hot Toys has an Ep. III Obi-Wan in the works very soon.
Here’s Hot Toys’ write-up:
Playing a core and decisive role in the Star Wars galaxy, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. Despite being a hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin’s fear of loss would prove to be his downfall and lead him on a path to the Dark Side.

I’ve already got my wish list set, but the essential ROTS collection needs Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Padme, Emperor Palpatine, Yoda and Count Dooku.
