Sideshow Unveils Three Amazing New Star Wars Statues


Sideshow Collectibles has revealed details and photos for three awesome new Star Wars statues, spread among the various Star Wars movies. We’ve got a Premium Format Death Trooper Specialist statue from the upcoming Rogue One movie, a life-size classic Star Wars R2-D2 statue, and a statue of Jango Fett, from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. And since we all know that size actually does matter, let’s start with R2-D2.

Details on Sideshow’s Life-Size R2-D2 Statue

How Tall Will This Statue Be?

R2-D2 will stand 48 inches (4 feet / 122 cm) tall, and be 42 inches (3.5 feet / 106.6 cm) wide.

 

What Special Features Will the Statue Have?

This statue will be incredibly detailed, and in addition to a movie accurate sculpt, will also have movie accurate lights and sounds that can be triggered by a remote control. In addition, the remote can be stashed inside a hidden compartment in R2, next to the speaker. And if that’s not cool enough, R2-D2’s dome can be rotated from left to right. Finally, R2 will come on a Millenium Falcon themed-base.

Is This Statue a Limited Edition?

Yes, though Sidehsow hasn’t revealed how many pieces it will be limited to.

Where Can I Order the Statue, and How Much Will it Cost?

OK. Here’s the painful part. R2-D2 will set you back $7450.00. Ouch. You can order him on Sideshow’s website, and they do provide payment plans. You know, if you’ve got the dough, the space-greenbacks, the credits…

When is the Statue Expected to Be Available?

Sideshow expects to have the statues available between May and July 2017

OK, so it’s an established fact that despite old Ben Kenobi’s asserstion that Stormtroopers are accurate, they generally can’t hit squat. But maybe that’s not the case with Rogue One’s Death Trooper Specialist. At least, with a name like that, you’d hope so.

In addition, it has a fabric tactical chest rig that holds, among other items, sculpted grenades anda thermal detonator. The figure comes armed with a blaster and a side-arm blaster pistol.

In addition, if you order the exlusive version of the statue from Sideshow, you’ll get an exclusive, interchangeable long-range blaster rifle for the statue.

Where Can I Order the Statue, and How Much Will it Cost?

Both the regular edition and exclusive edition of the statue can be pre-ordered on Sideshow’s website. Both editions of the statue will be $549.99. Sideshow has yet to reveal how many pieces the limited edition will feature.
