Following an extensive interview with Sideshow Collectibles' Creative Director Tom Gilliland regarding the newly revealed Interpretative Maquettes concept (which I will transcribe and publish as soon as I can), there was a casual conversation on the topic of Boba Fett and IG-88 where he revealed that SSC will be handling these characters in a similar manner as their Jabba's Palace collection. If all goes as planned, collectors should expect to see all six bounty hunters released in a short period of time and they should be making space for an accompanying Polystone Executioner's Bridge diorama to display the set. In addition, it was also revealed that there is a fully fucntional prototype of the IG-88 figure and we should be seeing it some time soon. Eagle-eyed readers will spot it in the gallery attached to the Collectors' Panel story below.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
