On Star Wars Day, Hot Toys celebrated the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with the announcement of two retro-styled figures of the franchise’s most haunting helmeted figures: Darth Vader and Boba Fett.
Both coming in vintage packaging harkening back to those of the Kenner era, the two collectibles each come in a 1/6th scale and boast more than 30 points of articulation. Standing 30cm tall, Boba Fett is dressed in his original ’80s colors and comes equipped with his signature blaster rifle, a pistol, the iconinc jetpack which can be secured via a magnet, and a branded display base. Four pairs of hands and fists also allow you to swap between various gestures.
As to the dark lord himself, Vader stands slightly taller at a menacing 35cm, with a removable helmet that reveals his mechanical components on his head as well as a battle-scarred scalp on the rear. Of course, he also comes with his red lightsaber, utility belt, an LED-lit chest panel, as well as a Cloud City-themed display base.
Both figures are now available for pre-orders over at Sideshow Collectibles, with prices ranging from $255 USD for the bounty hunter and $285 USD for the Sith lord. Delivery is expected between July and September this year.
