One of the most popular Clone Trooper legions is coming up from Hot Toys. Here’s your first look at Anakin Skywalker’s fighting 501st.
Captain not included
Are the 501st the most popular Clone Trooper legion in Star Wars? If they’re not, it’s by a pretty slim margin, as the legion that would go on to be known as Vader’s Legion are just about everywhere, in one form or another. Whether that’s in the form of Captain Rex, or the individual Clones themselves. In this case today though, we’re talking decidedly about the latter.
Just announced by Hot Toys, the 501st Legion Trooper is on the way from the toy-maker, inbound for a late 2023 (or early ’24) launch. Once again though, these figures are looking spectacular, and like they hopped right off the screen.
Based on the appearance of the 501st Legion Clone Troopers™ in the Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi™ series, the 501st Legion Clone Trooper 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure by Hot Toys features a newly developed clone trooper helmet and detailed armor in the Legion’s signature white and blue colors, plus weathered effects. The trooper comes equipped with a heavy blaster, blaster pistol, and a thermal detonator. The 501st Legion Clone Trooper 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure is also highly poseable with over 30 points of articulation and a variety of interchangeable hands.
