The gold standard in high-end collectible toys is a company called Hot Toys. They have the most desirable licenses, and create work that is absolutely second to none. Some of their recent brilliant work is based on Back to the Future, The Dark Knight and The Avengers.
Back in July, Hot Toys finally announced they had acquired the mother of all licenses: Star Wars. This was a crushing blow to collectors like myself because it meant we’d soon be dead broke as Hot Toys takes all our money with their amazing work. Now the first two pieces have been released and, as expected, they are incredible. You can see a tease above; below, check out the first Hot Toys Star Wars for Han Solo and Chewbacca.
The Hot Toys Star Wars Han Solo and Chewbacca will both be released in the the first half of 2015. You can pre-order them as a set or individually on Sideshow Collectibles. Here’s Han Solo.
