Hot Toys Anakin Up For Pre-Order

Sideshow is putting up Hot Toys’ glorious Anakin Skywalker sixth scale figure for pre-order.  It’s expensive–$235–but you can opt for a payment plan over 2-4 months with a small down payment.  I opted for a three month payment plan of about $71 a month over a three month period.

    Yikes on the cost! But dang – they did a great job capturing Hayden’s face. Need to mull this over but I think I know what I’m going to do. Thanks for the heads up

    Great figure, but I gagged at the product description: “was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force”. WTH. He IS the Chosen One.

      I didn’t notice that! Blasphemy! Also people are getting involved in the proce$$ without understand didley squat.

    • Darthqui-gon Says:

      I did not catch that. He is the choosen one Lucas said so himself. It’s Lucas’ galaxy what he says goes! Maybe we’re reading to much into it. Some of the Jedi Council didn’t believe he was like Yoda and Mace.

    • lovelucas Says:

      Exactly so. I really think those who are suppose to keep things kosher are being diluted by new blood who freaking don’t care. That’s why I was not part of the hunt for Star Wars items today. Hey..I got what I wanted and I’m not interested in anything else. That is the difference. I’m a hard core prequels and Lucas fan. And that’s what I buy.

        Here here lovelucas!!!! That’s exactly how I feel. 🙂

        Me too, ever since lucasfilm started pandering to haters, I have never being able to make myself buy anything other than I, II and III items, even though I also love IV, V and VI. I know how the market works and I just have to vote with my dollars. What has been done to the Prequels is disgusting.

    • Moose Says:

      Maybe they are going to try to sell us on the idea that Luke (or Rey!) is the actual Chosen One. Did they not try to push that initially with something LP mentioned from Rebels?

        Jut got caught up with season 3 bluray yesterday. I didn’t know what to make of that moment. Not to meant that after all Maul went through his death was very disappointing!!!! Lame. But….it was awesome to see my boys the Tusken Raiders make a cameo.

        Lucas said it on the documentary on the DVD release of Revenge of the Sith in the doc. The one all about Vader. That he is the choosen one even when he’s doing bad things he is still the choosen one that was only able to come back from the dark because of the love of his wife/children fulfilling his destiny as the choosen one returning balance to the Force but destroying the sith and himself out of pour unselfishness and love for others. Anakin’s the choosen one.

      • lovelucas Says:

        Responding to your earlier post, Darthqui-gon – Exactly -no doubt about it. Anakin IS the chosen one….and that’s spoken right from the mouth of the maker. That’s all I ever need to know.

      • Kim Says:

        I don’t mind Obi-Wan questioning if Anakin is The Chosen One in-universe at the time “Rebels” is set; after all, it doesn’t look very likely at that time given what has transpired. But I do object to anything that questions Anakin’s status as “The Chosen One” in George’s story overall.

      • Darthqui-gon Says:

        Pedro I totally agree all I buy is stuff from episodes 1-4. Only things I have from ESB & ROTJ the sounds tracks cd and LP, Arts of books, novelizations and of course the dvd/bluray. I can’t bring myself to buy anything else from those movies. And there’s not one thing I want old or new. I still love ESB and ROTJ I think the haters of tainted them for me. I never have a desire to watch them and when I do i get board with them. While 1-4 just keep getting better and better every time I watch them. I’m 44 grew up on the OT but I’m definitely PT guy. That’s my Trilogy and my girlfriend too. 🙂 She can’t even watch the OT. It’s the PT or CW all the way baby!

      • Darthqui-gon Says:

        I just watched one of the special features on Rebels season 3 about the Maul/Obi-Wan finally. And Dave Fioni clearly states the Anakin is the choosen one. I watched a couple more featurettes and it’s clear that Dave stays true to Lucas’ teachings.

    Breaking news: Netflix is saying The Clone Wars is only available until September 7. This time they might mean it, since Disney is planning to launch their own streaming service.

  4. Darthqui-gon Says:

    There are expensive, that’s why I only has six after years of collecting:

    Sideshow Naboo Maul
    Hot Toys episode 4 Vader
    Hot Toys episode 4 stormtrooper
    Sideshow Grevious
    Sideshow veteran Clones white and 501st

    Bit they are worth EVERY cent!!!!!

    Anakin and Tarken are my next. Been saving. Now that Hot Toys have the rights to the PT we should be seeing a lot more from them.

  5. Shel Says:

    Wow! That is gorgeous. Sadly pictures are about as close as I will ever come to this. It’s out of my price range. But I am so Anakin is getting some love. Bring on Padme!

    • Darthqui-gon Says:

      You got a year to save up. There’s also a payment plan. Time to put some stuff up on ebay. That’s what I’m doing. Never say never. 🙂

      • Darthqui-gon Says:

        I have to admit I’ve changed my mind from my earlier post. The more than
        I watch the Obi-Wan vs Maul’s the more I get it, the more I like it. Just had to clear that up.
