For this most part, it seems like Hot Toys is going to be taking over Star Wars from Sideshow Collectibles for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens film. However, that doesn’t mean Sideshow is completely done with Star Wars, as they are still revealing characters from the original trilogy! The latest figure to be revealed was the AT-AT Driver sixth scale figure based on his appearance in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
Suited for cold climate battle, the AT-AT driver comes fitted in a standard-issue uniform, featuring a streamlined helmet connected by pressurized hoses to a life support system, and glossy white armor over a pristine grey flight suit. Interchangeable driving gauntlets feature a com-link and allow dexterity for handling AT-AT controls while positive gravity pressure boots keep him grounded in all situations.
Although typically found in the cockpit, Sideshow’s Exclusive Imperial AT-AT driver also comes armed with a vintage inspired rifle blaster – a nostalgic feature Star Wars collectors are sure to enjoy. A standard version of the figure is also available at the same price without the additional blaster accessory.
Ready to serve the Galactic Empire with honor and distinction, the Imperial AT-AT driver is an exceptional addition to any Star Wars military collection!
