The second wave for 2009 has been revealed, and it will be centered on characters from The Empire Strikes Back! This wave will also include a Build-A-Droid (B-A-D) series of what looks to be U-3PO and not HK-47, as had been previously reported. (Although interestingly enough, U-3PO WAS rumored to be part of this wave initially.)

This wave includes the following figures:
  • BD-38: Luke Skywalker
  • BD-39: Emperor Palpatine
  • BD-40: Captain Needa
  • BD-41: Princess Leia
  • BD-42: Hoth Rebel Trooper (Version 1)

    Missing from this gallery are the Ugnaughts, who may or may not be a 2-pack. Previous information suggests this will be a running change between the two versions, but perhaps they will be packed together after all. Time will tell...

    In addition, several figure from wave 1 will also be repackaged in this wave, complete with the new BAD accessories
  • BD-08: Darth Vader
  • BD-33: Jawa & WED Treadwell Droid
  • BD-34: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi


    And in case you aren't sick of them yet, here's one more chance to nab a "Greatest Hits" figure...with the new B-A-D part, of course!:
  • GH-02: Kashyyyk Trooper

    And just for good measure, we've also got a nice pair of shots of the Trinto Duaba and Dice Ibegon set, which will be part of the A New Hope wave

    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).
