In an interesting bit of irony, I was watching Revenge of the Sith last night. Today, I wake up and see that Hot Toys has a new ROTS theme figure with its Dark Side Anakin Skywalker figure. Naturally, this is right after I got my Hot Toys Jedi Anakin figure.
This is listed as a Toy Fair exclusive meaning it’s probably going to be a bit pricier than the standard edition. I like the droid base, but more as an exclusive accessory. This is one of those cases I’m a little annoyed Hot Toys just didn’t make an alternate Dark Side head sculpt. It’s not like they don’t commonly include alternate head sculpts for figures. Since that’s the big draw here it seems like an unnecessary additional figure. Especially since I still need a ROTS Mace Windu, Chancellor Palpatine and Padme.
Here’s the synopsis:
‘You underestimate my power!’ – Anakin Skywalker
Once a heroic Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker was seduced by the dark side of the Force, became a Sith Lord, and led the Empire’s eradication of the Jedi Order. Tasked with finding and stopping Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi has intercepted the fallen Jedi on the planet of Mustafar and fought his former apprentice in an intense lightsaber duel!
With great excitement, Hot Toys is pleased to officially introduce the widely-anticipated 1/6th scale Anakin Skywalker (Dark Side) collectible figure from Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith as one of this year’s Toy Fair Exclusive items.
Sophisticatedly crafted based on the appearance of Anakin Skywalker in the film, the remarkable 1/6th scale collectible figure features a newly painted head sculpt with stunning likeness and the iconic yellow eyes of the young Skywalker turned Sith Lord, a specially tailored Jedi robe and tunic, an interchangeable mechno right arm, a LED light-up lightsaber, and a LED light-up Mustafar panning droid diorama figure base!
Now it’s the chance to add this incredible collectible figure to your treasured Star Wars collection!
