If you thought the Hot Toys news couldn’t get any cooler, think again. How does a sixth-scale Detention Block console from Star Wars sound?
Hot Toys is run by lunatics
Yes, they’re pretty excellent ones, but still crazy. The leadership at Hot Toys kind of has to be, since they keep going one step beyond what anybody could expect for sixth scale figure series’. We thought we’d seen the biggest announcements, literally and figuratively, already with the Dewback. But although it’s definitely in a different way, the Death Star Trooper and Detention Block Console is is just flat-out incredible.
It’s just one part too, of day two of Sideshow Con, Hot Toys’ retailing partner Sideshow’s own comic con within Comic Con. If you missed day one, click here to check it out, but day two is basically just as impressive.
Aside from the aforementioned, there’s also a new evolution in figure-making with the wool-haired Anakin Skywalker. Hot Toys has somehow found a way to make short, rooted hair not look insane. We’re not really sure how that happened, but check out the pic below for proof of concept.
There’s also a life-sized Grogu (with pram!), plus a full Quantumania line with a crazy MODOK, and some super-impressive Spider-Verse figures. All in all, an awesome day two of reveals, which you can check out below.
