At long last, a bunch of the hotly anticipated Hot Toys Star Wars action figures have arrived at Movie Figures! We got in Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, First Order StormTroopers, SandTroopers and more. Darth Vader was very hard to come by and sold out the day he came in, but others are still in stock. Here's a quick overview of each figure:
Hot Toys Star Wars Luke Skywalker Action Figure
When we saw the promo shots of this figure many months ago, we were very excited, particularly by the quality of the face sculpt. Now, having had a chance to inspect it up close, it is simply fantastic. You can display Luke in his traditional Episode IV outfit, or with his poncho and hat. There is a light-up lightsaber, which doesn't glow quite as well as the promotional shots would have you believe, but it's still a lot better than no light. We love the training remote and helmet. We'll be video reviewing this figure shortly, but take our word for it, it's a fantastic figure. It can be yours for £219.95 which is quite reasonable given all of the accessories and features of this figure.
Hot Toys Star Wars First Order StormTrooper Action Figure
The new StormTroopers are a must for any fan of the impressive new Star Wars movie. Hot Toys have produced a range of them, including the standard blaster fodder that you see here. Accessories are pretty slim with this figure, but it's £30 cheaper than Luke. You get a blaster and a pistol and that's it. That said, the armour moulding looks spot on. Nice, sharp detailing despite the small scale. Good articulation allows a wide variety of dynamic poses. He costs £189.95.
Hot Toys Star Wars First Order StormTrooper Action Figures
If you're looking to build yourself an squad of StormTroopers, this two pack is a cost effective way of doing that. You get a standard StormTrooper and a Heavy Gunner in a nice two pack box. Ensuring that each StormTrooper is a little different ensures you display looks varied and interesting. The two pack costs £349, which works out cheaper than buying the figures seperately.
Hot Toys Star Wars First Order StormTrooper Heavy Gunner Action Figure
The Heavy Gunner First Order StormTrooper swaps out the Blaster for a Heavy Gun complete with monopod that can be used to help balance the gun and gives alternate display options. He also comes complete with a pistol. At £199.95, he costs £10 more than the standard StormTrooper which seems fair, given the large gun!
Hot Toys Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader Action Figure
Yet another First Order StormTrooper! This time, the squad leader. The main difference is the white cauldron which indicates the rank of Squad Leader. This figure is also £10 more than the standard StormTrooper, putting it at £199.95
More Hot Toys Star Wars Action Figures Coming Soon
A number of other Star Wars figures are expected from Hot Toys over the coming months including Princess Leia, more StormTroopers, a Tie Pilot, Rey and Finn. We highly recommend you pre-order these as they tend to sell out real fast. You can see our pre-orders on the link below.
