Over the past few years, it’s become evident that collectors are willing to spend big money for high-end product. While many of us grew up in the 80s subsisting off of visits to our local toy store and dropping a few bucks here and there on our favorite new toy, these days those same collectors are becoming disenfranchised with retail offerings and looking towards expensive, high-end collectibles to satisfy that nostalgia kick.
Well, they don’t get much more high-end and expensive than Hot Toys, and Hot Toys just delivered a knock out punch to Star Wars fas. On their Facebook page, Hot Toys has revealed stunning images of the upcoming Hot Toys Chewbacca and Han Solo Sixth Scale Figures from Star Wars: A New Hope, and my inner 8-year-old is weeping. Meanwhile, my outer 40-year-old is weeping when I think of how expensive this could get. Hot Toys has certainly dipped into the Star Wars mythos, but this Han Solo and Chewie? Amazing.
UPDATE: Pre-orders are now available here.
