Hot Toys Spacetrooper Sixth Scale Figure to be Star Wars Celebration 2015 Exclusive
Since its inception, Star Wars Celebration has been one of the biggest gathering events for Star Wars fans. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters worldwide at the end of the year, this celebration is special. It’s so special that many companies that wouldn’t normally be in attendance are coming, and the best part? They are bringing exclusives!
Hot Toys announced today that they are going to be making an appearance at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2015 is a few days. To welcome the event, Hot Toys is going to be offering an exclusive Spacetrooper sixth scale figure. They also note on the announcement page to “please stay tuned with your local distributor for pre-order details!”
To me, that means that you are going to be able to purchase this piece though Sideshow Collectibles, whether you are going to be attending the show or not. Time will tell if that’s true or not, but Hot Toys does something very similar with the rest of their exclusives; They offer it for sale at the convention, as well at though their distributors so everyone has a chance at adding it to their collection.
The Spacetroopers are assigned to operate in Zero-G environments and true Star Wars fans would notice these troopers making their appearance when the Millennium Falcon was first captured by the Death Star.
The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Spacetrooper in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. This specialized trooper features a beautifully crafted armor and helmet, a highly detailed Spacetrooper rebreather pack with detachable parts, two types of blasters, and a specially designed figure stand.
More or less, these figures are basically just Stormtroopers with some different equipment. That’s not to say anything bad about these figures, as the Hot Toys Stormtrooper is highly recommended for anyone.
Depending on the price, I’m probably going to try to get a Spacetrooper because I simply can’t get enough of my Hot Toys Stormtroopers already!
Since this is an exclusive item, I would highly recommend that you check this page regularly until it goes up for pre-order. I would anticipate that this sells out in a few hours, similar to how quick the movie promo edition figures disappear.
