During the assault of B’omarr™ Monastery, Anakin Skywalker™ begins the difficult ascent up the sheer cliff with battle droids firing down on him, and droid-piloted STAP™'s racing into combat, laser cannons blasting. Casualties are mounting, so Anakin makes a daring move. He leaps into the air to take command of a STAP and disposes of battle droids with his lightsaber, clearing a path to the summit.

Today Hot Toys is very excited to recreate the exciting scene with the highly anticipated 1/6th scale Anakin Skywalker and STAP collectible set from Star Wars: The Clone Wars™!

The highly-detailed collectible figure is specially crafted based on the debut appearance of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animation series, featuring a skillfully crafted head sculpt, meticulously tailored costume and a set of beautifully designed armor guards for alternative styles. His signature LED light-up lightsaber, a number of interchangeable hands, a thermal detonator, a hologram projector and several hologram figures representing Ahsoka Tano™, Yoda™, and Obi Wan Kenobi™ round out the set so you can take on the droid armies.

Embodying extraordinary workmanship and remarkable high quality details, the 1/6th scale STAP measuring at approximately 32cm in height, features phenomenal paint application on the precise mechanical design with specially applied weathering effects, drive turbines with LED light-up function, articulated grip, foot pedals, steering vane, and a specially designed figure stand.

A Special Edition available in select markets will include a grey colored poncho with weathering effects as bonus item exclusively for collectors.

Don’t pass up on the chance to add the new Anakin Skywalker and STAP collectible set to your Star Wars collection.

Well, gee, they finally made him.... after I already made my own version. Look like they will do the TCW Obi-wan, too — at least I didn’t try to kitbash that one yet! Razz
No doubt Ahsoka is forthcoming as well. I’ve been working on four different versions of her for the last two years. It’s hard not to feel deflated that HT is beating me to all these first.

On one hand, I’m glad they are doing these earlier TCW figures, as the Sideshow versions are long gone and overpriced on eBay. But on the other .... I admit I’m kinda bummed that I didn’t get to finish my custom TCW line up yet. :/

I’m torn over whether to get this one , since I already have my own custom version. But I’m thinking at the very least I’d like the portrait/headsculpt for potential customising purposes...

ETA: regarding the figure itself, I’ll list what I like about it, and what I’m not as keen on:

Like:

- the fact that this is early TCW Anakin — I heart ‘Skyguy’!

- the fact that the under tunic and trousers are burgundy/red ( the original Sideshow version is a blah brown colour)

- the boots look pretty accurate

- the fact he’s got the 2d animated style cloak is weird but cool effect


Don’t like:

- portrait looks very similar to RotS one , just with shorter hair . Would have been nice if likeness had been improved. Also wish they’d given him a more smirky grin .... an expression face would have been welcome for — and more in keeping with — this version of the character.

- the chest and shoulder armour is weird . I’m not sure I like the interpretation. Prefer the Sideshow version for that part

- same with the left gauntlet ... looks odd compared to SS one

- the blue tunic interpretation is super ugly . It should be more of a faux leather like on the SS figure. The pleating is especially distracting.

- I have zero use for that speeder thing. It’s too specific to just this one scene — not worth the extra price it will put on this for me

Overall it’s cool they are doing these, but I’m not totally blown away by this interpretation (thought I could be biased lol). Will prob get some parts though ! Actually rather looking forward to the Obi-Wan, since I want that version of him pretty badly and hadn’t started collecting parts for it...

I wouldn't give up on your customs, S. Don't feel deflated at all. Often, I find it more satisfying to have something I made, then something someone else made -- especially, when HT was lazy enough to use the EXACT SAME PORTRAITS for this (and the possible forthcoming Obi-Wan) -- just with different hair. Buy some loose parts if you feel it necessary, but I would still finish your customs. Your custom Anakin and Padme are stellar examples of someone putting LOVE into a project, rather than thinking "how much money can I gouge someone for this cobbled together piece I have ZERO actual interest in?"

Hmm, don't know about this one, in part because I'm not familiar with the source material. The likeness seems great from certain angles and uncanny valley from others. I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one to think the shoulder armor looked odd. That said, I'm glad they are expanding their coverage, and I think their choice of this large but still manageable accessory for inclusion is a good one. Then again, I'd shudder at the thought of the price. Sky, I don't think you need to give up on your custom -- having seen your customs, it would be an improvement, and this set might give you the odd piece or three to integrate into your version.

Thanks, guys. I love you Appreciate the kind words and encouragement -- I do probably get a little too easily discouraged sometimes. Probably because this year has been rough in so many ways and it's been hard enough to find the energy to work on things. Our finances have taken some pretty big hits as well recently, so pre-ordering HT stuff is not exactly high on my priority list these days, especially not when I've already put so much time and resources into customs. :/

Stryker -- you're right, it does seem extremely lazy that the headsculpt is basically just the RotS one with some slight alterations. They didn't even change the hair that much... just looks like they chopped a bit off the back and that's about it. They could have at least given him a slightly less angry expression -- he's literally showing off and having fun in this scene. Ah well.... 

GF -- I'm not sure what is up with the headsculpt or whether it will end up a bit differently in-hand, it could just be the lighting here. Though imo the way they interpreted the animated hairstyle here leaves a lot to be desired, and probably doesn't help the likeness issue much. 

Here's some of the preview pics off the Sideshow site: 

hottoys - NEW PRODUCT: HOT TOYS: STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS ANAKIN SKYWALKER AND STAP 1/6TH SCALE COLLECTIBLE SET 1125x682_previewbanner_906712_Anakin

The sculpt looks a bit better here. But still, the expression seems pretty close to the previous Anakin sculpt... so, we'll see. 

The closer look confirms that the blue overtunic does indeed look atrocious... so wrinkly! Why the heck did they make it in such wrinkly material? I get they wanted to make it 'dynamic' with wire inside, but it just looks bad imo. 

The armor looks a bit better in this pic, but still something seems off. Maybe it's the clothing being so poorly tailored on the body that it's sitting funny on top of it of it all. Idk...


Here's the General Kenobi preview: 

hottoys - NEW PRODUCT: HOT TOYS: STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS ANAKIN SKYWALKER AND STAP 1/6TH SCALE COLLECTIBLE SET 1125x682_previewbanner_906713_ObiWan-1
 
This one looks pretty good, but again... seems like they once again reused the same RotS head. 



There's definitely some parts on the Anakin I'll want to pick up loose, but I'm not currently convinced it would be worth getting the whole set. I'm leaning toward getting the Obi-Wan since, much like the Captain Rex, the old Sideshow fig is impossible to find now, but I will have to wait and see more promo pics....

Well, these are prototypes. Although the usual point we make is that the final "mass"-produced product often falls a bit short of the fine prototype sculpt or paint, there are also plenty of instances where they do improve on imperfections or shortcuts in the prototypes. That said, HT has occasionally made recourse to unnecessarily wrinkly cloth.

True, of course. I’m thinking of the Bespin Leia, with the wire inside ironically making the garment sit unnaturally (albeit helped with some futzing).

I would also add, that as of late, they haven’t gone back and tweaked any sculpts. They’ve gotten very lazy in the last year or so.

So it seems. I'd definitely be much more enthusiastic about dropping the $$$ on this if the sculpt were at least a bit more unique. 


As for the outfit/armour, I looked at a few of the pics more closely:

hottoys - NEW PRODUCT: HOT TOYS: STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS ANAKIN SKYWALKER AND STAP 1/6TH SCALE COLLECTIBLE SET Anakin-skywalker_star-wars_gallery_5f19fc15b9c8d

From this and other promo pics, I can see now what they are doing with the armour on this one -- it looks like it actually 'moves' with the figure! If so, I have to admit that is a pretty awesome innovation, and is in fact very accurate to the animation. The chest armour in the show sort of 'expands' and 'contracts' with his movement, and the one drawback of the Sideshow armour is that it is static and thus limits articulation. So, while I still prefer the Sideshow armour aesthetically, this one seems to win when it comes to functionality. I'm actually rather impressed they made this version of it adjustable, as it will hopefully help a great deal with the overall poseability of the figure.

This might convince you, Sky, that you're custom is more the way to go:

$385 USD (for either version according to Sideshow, which is probably a typo on their part)

According to Timewalker:

Standard edition = $260 ($252 PO price)
with STAP = $385 ($374 PO price)

HT prices are always ridiculous, but the price for the vehicle version is nuts! :O
