Star Wars collections are about to get a fresh dose of droids, thanks to Hot Toys and the newest 1/6 scale set, starring R5-D4, Pit Droid, and BD-72.
Well these look pretty familiar
If you’re a Star Wars fan of any length of time, you should be instantly familiar with all three of the droids in this new multi-pack from Hot Toys. And that’s even if you haven’t seen The Mandalorian.
Though all of the figures in the set do hail from the Disney+ show, they also have all had a role in other Star Wars outlets. Probably the most famous of the three is A New Hope’s R5-D4, who featured in a pretty famous scene in that original trilogy. But on top of R5, you also have a Pit Droid from The Phantom Menace, and BD-72, who’s of a make that had a starring role in the video game Jedi: Fallen Order.
All three are included in the set, and look to be of the usual high standards that Hot Toys holds itself to.
Peli Motto™, the scrappy proprietor of Hangar 3-5 in the Mos Eisley™ Spaceport, has helped The Mandalorian™ and the foundling Grogu™ several times on their journeys – with the assistance of a team of hyperactive Pit Droids and other mechanical assistants.
Hot Toys’ latest figure set enables fans to add Peli Motto’s companions to their Star Wars™ collection. The set, which contains ultra detailed and articulated 1/6 scale figures of R5-D4, Pit Droid, and BD-72, is available to pre-order now, via Sideshow.com.Sideshow Toys press release
