    Points of Interest:
  • Darth Vader is a repack of the figure from 2005's ROTS Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader Evolutions set. This time around, the figure has a 2-piece removable helmet.
  • Originally, this figure was to include a 3-piece removable helmet (dome, mask, and breathing apparatus). However, the sculpting wasn't done in time, so it was switched to a 2-piece instead. A 3-piece removable helmet is now unlikely to ever be released.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes R7-Z0's head and middle leg.
  • This figure has also been found in TLC wave 3, with the head of 56D-RA-7.
  • This figure has also been found in TLC wave 4, with the head of MB-RA-7.

    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).
