  • Bo-Katan announced. Anyone getting it? We will upload her in a couple of days. Add her to your wish list or collection (pre-ordered) if interested and we all can know how sought after she seems to be!
    At Secret Base, her price is HK$ 1,730. An increase of 10-15% from similar figures in the last year. Hot Toys is definitely price testing the market!

    • 100% grabbing this one! Pity about the prices rising though.

      • I am not sure yet, but I would bet I am in the minority. The price is the same as the last Boba Fett, so I expect that Sideshow MSRP will be USD 285, which last year would be a USD 240-250 figure (i.e. Commander Cody & Captain Rex).

    • I can’t justify that price to get it. I’m not super keen on the character either, so I can pass on this if I have to, which I am. We’re talking roughly 325USD total. If it was like 250-260MSRP I could get behind that. Considering inflation and improved quality/engineering that would seem justifiable. Pass for me.

      • I have the same opinion. Just FYI, toys buying agent in HK is selling it for USD 270 shipped (paying 50% or 100% one year in advance, so some counterparty risk). For USD 285 MSRP + I am not as hyped as those who grew up watching “Clone Wars”, likely a pass for me too (I will get it from HK if I do). But it is a very nice figure! At least we are…Read More

    • I’ll be getting her because she’s ultimately a clone wars character and I’m going all in on any CW figures. However that headsculpt is not good, she honestly looks like a man as is. I hope they improve the head, if not mine will always be wearing the helmet

      • hehehe Very much agree. I think the eyes are too small and the face is slightly too elongated. But not a deal breaker per se, especially for someone all in in CW. (really, all the clones if they release them?)

        • ah no I won’t be getting all the clones. Those coruscant guards for example, I’ll be passing on. I do have 3 501st on order as well as Rex. If they release 212ths I’ll definitely be getting those to go with Cody. If they release any named clones like Fives, Bly or Wolffe I would definitely get them

    • I’ve been waiting for this since she showed up in Mando 😀 The HS isn’t 100% on point but still really good. She’ll probably go to my CW collection instead of Mando 😀

  • Commander Cody waitlisted in Sideshow. Still available for a hefty price tag in HK (Toys Buying Agent and Toys Wonderland). Maybe we should start tracking how long does it take for each figure to go waitlisted?

    • That would be a neat feature. To show how long a figure was in stock for. Darkside Anakin was in stock for like a year, wehreas Krennic waitlisted very fast, a couple weeks I think

    • Well… it was inevitable 😀 Mine should arrive in few weeks (I’m from central Europe so we get everything much later than in US :D)

    • I actually my own tool that tracks Sideshow status changes, though I don’t keep analytical data. I can look back though and see Cody came in stock 01/20/2021, waitlisted 3/2/2021

    • Looks 🔥 I should finally play the game 😀

      • I like it too, but too much heat from SW at the moment, so I cannot commit (yet). I decided to have only a single wall for my collection, so I am running out of space (I do not want my figures too close together, and I like to pose them). Let’s see. And how will this figure change its eyes?! Led? Not possible with batteries dying in 20 mins.

  • Announcement of Boba Fett as seen in Mandalorian S2. The deluxe set comes with 2 figures (I believe it was the Batman Returns the last time HT did a 2-pack). The armor is before the repaint.
    Sideshow: USD 490 (deluxe)
    USD 285 (Regular)

    • Great looking figure, but I think I will pass and wait for the repainted version (not a big Boba Fett fan, I do not even have the regular ESB or ROTJ versions, I just want to have one version of him).

      • I’m passing on this one too. I really want repainted version. I’d rather have the ESB boba over this mando weathered one. And I definitely don’t need like 4 or 5 Bobas, so pass for me

    • Not exactly what I was hoping for but still happy with this deluxe pack 🙂

  • Anyone interested in these two from HT?

    • Bo is D1 PO for me 😀 Not 100% sure about this version of Boba tho… It would be great if they made the armor removable and added headsculpt, cape, rifle and gaderffii so you could have salvaged armor Boba or nomad Boba

    Thought about posting some of these. Prototype photos in HT for the Dark Trooper.

    • I know some who might be buying multiples, isn’t it @metycz? 🙂 I will wait for final product photos before I decide (answer is no so far for me)

      • I’m not 100% sure about this one after I saw photos from secret base 😅 I’ll also wait for the final product… But I wasn’t really thrilled about Solo Maul till I saw final product photos and reviews and now I’m really happy that I didn’t sleep on him 🙂 This might be the same case

    • these are cool but I already have 2 death troopers and will be getting 2 shoretroopers, so I’m not sure if I want to delve into army building with the dark troopers. I don’t like having single troopers by themselves, and 2 dark troopers will be expensive haha

      • I have the same opinion (and also bought 2 DT and getting the 2 shoretroopers : ) ). Still not convinced with the their plastic look. Maybe the final product will look better for me.

        • they do look a bit cartoony to me. The DTs and shoretroopers look like serious soldiers and imo look a lot better and are more iconic

  • HT News:
    Hellboy (finally) released in HK today.

    • Damn this looks so cool, don’t think this will sell out anytime soon so I might have to pick him up later

      • It is a very nice “one-off” and very different than anything else HT has made before. In HK, his price the usual “first batch” pre-order price, so it seems demand is normal. You might get a good deal if you wait a little (buying from HK), the prices might drop.

  • Hot Toys announced Batman and Robin from the Batman Forever movie (1997) and slated for Q2 2022.
    They are up for pre-order in Sideshow. Batman for USD 245 and Robin for USD 235 and for HKD 1530 and HKD 1490 at Secret Base.

    • Great! Very dynamic and truly captures what is Spider-Man.
      Well… plagiarism is the best type of flattery : ) I might use it in one of my spidermen. I think only the legs o will get creases on mine, so another pros for this pose!

  • Loose joints unfortunately, but he looks really cool nonetheless

    • Completely agree… And the pic makes me want this one more. 👍

      I am still debating if I get this one. I actually am in the minority which does not like Boba Fett original design. This one, I dig it. About these “loose joints”. Does it mean the figure will degrate faster over time?

      • are you a fan of Boba Fett in Mandalorian? If you’re only looking for one it might be worth it to wait for that one since Hot Toys will inevitably do it. While I like some of Sideshow’s figures, Hot Toys are noticeably higher in quality

        So I’ve had this sideshow figure for about 6 or 7 months. Even out of the box he was a bit loose, and his…Read More

        • Got it, that is what I thought. Well, I think this design is still better than the one in the Mandalorian (i.e. that “beer belly” does not look good hehehe). I might wait to see the other one and compare if it is worthwhile. It is unfortunate that Sideshow uses this type of body. They really nail the design, same thing can be said for Sideshow’s…Read More

    • @bernardo if you can get one for a discount 2nd hand it might be worth trying to pick up. Had to comment separately because it’s not letting me directly reply to your other comment

  • For the Republic!

    • And you said you did not know how to pose or take good pictures 😅Sure… Pose, angle and colors, all work!

      It makes me jealous as well that I do not have an Obi-Wan and I am waiting for the Clone Wars version annoucement

      • haha i only said i was bad at photography. I think im half decent at posing but I must admit it takes me a while to get them perfect. Yeah I’m lucky that I got into the collecting game while Obi Wan was still available. I’m hoping for the clone wars announcement too. Can’t get enough of obi wan

  • So it seems HT is reviving part of the Rogue One line. Wekll, the most skeptical part of me thinks that HT simply saw an opportunity after the Transport Trooper (same helmet) appeared in S2 of the Mandalorian.
    – HKD 1390 in Secret Base
    – We assume the price will be USD 230 in Sideshow.

    • i like this design more than the transport trooper

      • Agreed. I’m glad that I didn’t preordered Transport trooper… I’m going to get this one instead 😀

        • same here. I think this guy will look good with the upcoming shore troopers

        • You both are getting him? I also prefer his look than that of the transport trooper and I like a lot his design. Hopefully I am done with troopers, I think with him I will have all the SW trooper designs that I really like (I need to keep space for other main characters that hopefully are going to be announced)

    • I was hoping for Kenobi… Why are you here?

      • Me too, I like to believe that the reason for the delay is that HT is coming up with a different head sculpture…

  • Which Maul do you all prefer?

    • I prefer DX18 mainly cos that amazing robo legs 👌 But DX16/17 looks also great

    • @bernardo I cant directly reply to your comment. Seems like comment chains arent allowed beyond 3 comments. But I would have to agree with you, I would have to pick DX16/17 as well

    • Dx16/17 by a mile. The original. Also a huge fan of clone wars maul but solo? He was 5 seconds of char design and something about dx18 looks like he has a goatee and I do not dig it.

      • It does kind of look like a goatee with the face paint and his expression lol. I still think he looks pretty good in person, but I would agree dx16/7 is the best
