read this one facebook anyone know about this?

HK Figure Club interviewed Howard Chan recently. Here are the highlights of the interview :

-The next Star Wars figures should be Anakin and Han Solo, followed by a character from Episode II.

Nice to know Han will be out sooner than later.

Betting the Episode II character is Arena Padme. Hot Toys is only gonna do humans -- she's the missing link from Sideshow.

...The next Star Wars figures should be Anakin and Han Solo, followed by a character from Episode II.

That's great news, thanks for posting this. Great to get confirmation on Han (don't care about Anakin or Ep II character). Hope it's the Bespin version and that they decide to skip the PERS. Really, really hope someone finally nails Solo in 1:6 form. :panic: :pray: :panic:



Awesome. Was hoping for Obi-Wan but still great news.

Yeah, would've liked an Ep IV Obi-Wan, but I'm sure they'll get to it sooner or later.

I know Sideshow said they're doing Dooku, but maybe it will be in conjunction with HT? :pray:

Yeah, that's what I was wondering (whether they're referring to Dooku, even though it sounded like in a previous interview that Sideshow was working on him already). Would Padme sell enough to make it worth HT's time? Really have no idea of what demand is like for her character, so just curious. Hopefully we'll know everything by SDCC.

Yep, me too. Their work is generally second to none, so they're definitely our best option for delivering a good likeness.

Me too, but suspect the guess that it's Padme is probably correct as she is a pretty huge gap figure-wise from the PT.



han???? Yesssssssss!!!!!

Yep, looking forward to your updated Cantina scenes with HT Han already! Not to mention putting him in my own humble Chalmun's Cantina set at some point! :hi5:

Anakin and Han?

So Ep II character will be for next year?

Not interested in any of those characters really, certainly not Anakin. A good Han Solo would be nice but after the Indy figure I'm gunshy about Ford likeness from anyone at HT.

I don't really want to believe this anyway. I still say Darth Maul is coming. What the hell does Howard know? :D

That's why I'm hoping they skip PERS. The Indy sculpt looked pretty good to me otherwise. Either they need to rework the sculpt so the eyes don't appear so deep-set or junk the PERS, I think.

My thoughts exactly.

Still, it would be great to get a HT level (hopefully Bespin) Han.

No real interest in Anakin either.

As far as the Episode II figure being Padme, didn't they all say that HT would only do figures Sideshow has already done? And no, I don't think Snowbunny Padme counts.

banthafett
04-30-2012, 11:55 AM
I think ALL Star Wars from HT will be PERS. They are going to milk as much money as they can.

Hope Anakin turns out nice. Luke looks like crap, and if they are going the route of Han as they did Indy, NO THANKS!

The SSC ANH one isn't that bad, especially the costume.

Wor-Gar
04-30-2012, 12:15 PM
Hope Anakin turns out nice.

PERS Sith eyes would look pretty cool... just don't care for Anakin much.

That's why PERS Maul eyes would look better!


Anyway, the news/update sounds less promising than I was hoping for when I heard HT got to share the license. Not sure what I was expecting but I did have hope that HT would tackle some of the key characters that SS has overlooked for the last 7 years.

Khev
04-30-2012, 12:20 PM
For Han I also hope its the Bespin version, though SSC's figure is somewhat burned into my brain so its hard to picture what a "cool" Bespin Han would even look like as a toy anymore. :lol

I imagine it'll be somewhere between this:

'course that particular figure always sucked.

Misterscruff
04-30-2012, 12:23 PM
For me they can forget Anakin and skip straight to Han...as long as the likeness is better than Arnie Kim's woeful effort with Indy. The only Prequel characters I'd pay HT prices for are Padme and Obi Wan.

ProgMatinee
04-30-2012, 12:34 PM
If HT pulls Han off, youre SSC ANH will stick out like a sore thumb, with SSC awful paint.

That can be said about any SSC figure vs HT, so what's your point?

SSC ANH Han >>>>>>>> SSC Bespin Han, therefore Bespin Han should be redone first.

Wor-Gar
04-30-2012, 12:35 PM
Clearly for the price ($250-$300+) they are only going to make MAJOR characters.

But if they are truly stuck doing only human characters, that means after Han all you're gonna see is retreads of Luke, Leia, Lando, Kenobi, Anakin, Padme... and maybe a Dooku or Maul once a year. In fact, that list right there covers HT for the next three years.

Chewie is not a human character, so I'm not sure why so many people were hoping from him.

The Mike
04-30-2012, 12:53 PM
Anakin will most likely be from ROTS, semi interested but not really full jazzed about it.

Hopefully Han will be the Bespin version or at least from ESB. I'd hate for them to pick and choose from random movies so we get an ANH Han but an ESB Luke and nothing matching up.

Character from Episode II, I'm guessing it'll be a Mace Windu, it's a character that SSC has already done so it won't conflict, HT seems to love Samuel L. Jackson and it'll be able to coexist with any of the future prequel offerings.

nexus
04-30-2012, 12:54 PM
Good news on the Star Wars. Han and Anakin will definitely be must buys and hopefully the Ep II character is Arena Padme. Hopefully this line will pick up steam. HT for human(oids), SS for aliens, droids and troopers.

ProgMatinee
04-30-2012, 12:55 PM
I have to admit to not following HTSW closely, but are we assuming SSC is only allowing them human characters and those already made or has it been published by SSC or HT or what?

Also, isn't Bespin Luke expensive because they are selling 2 figures in 1. I think they'll hover around $175-180 for most.

why would dooku be 250? luke is 250 but is really a 2pack, so say the figure is more than one luke we might ask who would pay 150 for dooku, and i believe the answer is many would

I remember reading a Hot Toys interview with SSC from a while back and they said while they know everyone wants one they have no idea how to produce it. Everything they've tried has been riddled with problems. Think it'll be a long time before we see ol' Chewie.



Cant wait to see Han (hope he is not an indi head on a Han body)...

Can't imagine HT would even try that. For one thing, ESB Ford looks substantially different from Indy Ford plus this should be an opportunity for them to get the sculp right, considering how much criticism they have received on their initial effort.

SW is 4 Eva so they can bring out whatever from the movies...i want it ALL.
a 2 in 1 Padme from EP 2 would be very sweet..a formal costume and the Arena costume...or just a Arena costume and a battle damaged costume with all the midriff tears etc etc.
I was hoping they would do the TPM Queen costume...that is really beautiful and would go well with the current Battle Droids.

HT has already said that all Star Wars figures would be DXs which is where a ton of the jokes about Vader started filling in. Given how the prices have been running I would assume that Ani would be higher, Han even higher and by the time they hit an Episode II figure it'd be around $250 for DX figures.


they won't do that - they know people were ____ talking and hated the Indy head.

Oh yeah, Han was announced and/or pushed up I'm sure to get over that. They want another shot at Ford's likeness. I wouldn't be shocked if there wasn't another Indy DX announced at some point too.

Damn, I was having just this thought on my walk home from work, today. Would love a ANH/Bespin Han two pack. :pray:

Only other two pack Han that was mentioned in another thread that would be really cool would be Bespin Han with Han in Carbonite, but I think Hot Toys could actually save the Carbonite version for another release and still keep everyone happy. Am really hoping that prop is re-released in 1:6 version with lights, etc.

I didn't neglect to mention it, it's just one of the versions of Han I sadly have no interest in. Despite that, I think a Hoth Han/Bespin Han is more likely than a ANH/Bespin Han. Hopefully I'll be proved wrong, though. Would be nice to be able to display ANH Han in a Cantina setting and Bespin Han elsewhere.

Mad Old Lu
04-30-2012, 06:13 PM
I would LOVE a Bespin/Hoth Han! Although I'm doubtful it will happen since HT and Sideshow specifically said that HT would only do figures Sideshow already did. But I can't really think of any other ESB Han 2-pack combo that would make sense. ANH/Bespin 2 pack seems like a stretch because they would literally be 2 completely different figures, as opposed to HT's Bespin Luke.

But I really look forward to a HT Han. I think HT did a spectacular job on Luke and I can't wait to see what they do with Han! I'm really hoping their bad Indy was just an anomaly.

My guess is that we are going to get a Bespin Han that is justified as a DX by coming with a Han in Carbonite accessory.

I could totally see them doing that.

If SS Anakin and their Solo figures were worthless before, can they be worth even less now????


Is it true that HT can only make what SS has made before?

And they are limited to human characters?

This kind of sucks.

Why would Sideshow let Hot Toys make figure they haven't yet?

That would be awesome, but keep in mind that they would want to milk the figure as much as possible. So I think if Han were a DX we would probably get a Bespin Han with a carbonite Han.

I'd rather get a Tatooine/Bespin Han set, followed later by a Tatooine/ROTJ Luke. Cover the waterfront as fast as possible. They can do ANH/Hoth Leia as a set and the main heroes could be completed in a few years.

I have faith that SSC could do Hoth Han & Luke. I don't care who does them, but if I got them without PERS, I'd be very happy.

It would be great if it was the Bespin Han/Carbonite Han combo since I missed out on Sideshow's Carbonite Han. But it would be a little bit of a let-down since the Luke DX gets you two full figures, bodies and all.

I'm gonna go all out and hope it's a Bespin/Hoth Han plus the Carbonite Han! The Carbonite Han will be the equivalent of the weather vane for Luke.

How about a Han/Luke Hoth set?

If they did a ROTS Obi-wan set with a Mustafar battle version to match a ROTS Anakin Jedi/Sith set, I'd be interested in prequel figures. I'd also take an AOTC Kenobi/Skywalker set (and if they did I'd want HT to make Dooku). Then a Qui-gon/Obi-wan set with Maul.

An updated Han in Carbonite with lights is way more involved than the weather vane prop. SSC's original was $200.00 (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=2177&ref=learnmore_2177) when it came out years ago. I think it'd be better as a standalone HT release. Hopefully it's already on their schedule at some point as I imagine there's quite a few others like us that missed out on the first one.

Sideshow's included the wall which was fairly sizeable. So if you take that out of the equation, I think just the carbonite slab and the weather vane can kinda be considered the same. I'll give you that the Carbonite requires another unique Han sculpt, though.

The Fertility Idol Pedestal was also quite expensive (not to mention it required you to purchase Belloq) but HT managed to include one with the Indiana Jones DX figure.

Admittedly, SS' was better though.

I could easily see a Bespin Han with Carbonite block included together for $300.00.

Or....

This is a long shot....

The extra could be the cloud city torture rack.

Think you're underestimating the complexity of re-issuing the slab (ideally I'd like it to be a 1:6 version of SSC's just released PF with the same lighting options), personally, but we'll see what they do. Given it's a sure hit with collectors, I'd be really surprised if HT doesn't have plans to re-issue it at some point.

No offense but I believe any HT figure that is not a trooper would have a higher sculpt and better detals than all the current 1/6 released by Sideshow. I mean look at this Luke and compare with almost all the other Sideshow figures that have come out in 1/6 and that are not troopers.
The best that sideshow have given us in this format -in my opinion- are the troopers. I hope sideshow can step it up and deliver an actual accurate, good quality spot on figure that doesnt wear a helmet, if you know what I mean and make the outfits a little bit more stylish. Oterhwise Im happy with buying HT jedi/sith and Sideshow Mandalorians (helmets) and troopers. lol.

Since Hot Toys do Sideshow's armored figures anyway, I doubt we'll see any under the Hot Toys brand.

Regarding Han, he's one character you'd be able to do all his incarnations in a DX version - just throw in Ep V jacket and Ep VI trenchcoat.

Of the 'human' rehashes that HT is allowed to do from the license, I really only want a good Bespin Han. I think SS's old Ben is fine the way it is. I'd like a better Princess Leia but its not critical and I'm not sure I want one for $250. Same could be said for anyone else... Anakin, Mace, young Obi, Lando, more Lukes... not for $250+ a pop. Not even Dooku or Tarkin is worth that.

So this whole "HT got the license" is starting to sound like a raw deal.

I'll take Han, Luke and Leia from the first two movies, and Luke from the third. Geonosis Padme and the prequel duels would be cool, but I'd be equally happy if Sideshow just made the figures that are left (TPM Obi-wan, AOTC Anakin, Padme, and Dooku). I expect a prequel Yoda from them. After that, I can think of nothing else I care about enough to pay those prices either.

However, if I had to bet money on it, I would say Hot Toys will make a Chewbacca, or die trying.

It's just the $250+ price tag for figures that I already have that's hard to swallow. Just to replace the key four from the OT is $1,000.

Star Wars is the one license where I am as excited by a key character as I am about some creature that spent two seconds in a walk-by. It's a great universe of 'things' and great fun to collect. I couldn't just get 3-4 human key figures and be done with my "classy" Star Wars display. It doesn't lend itself to simplicity the way Batman does. Star Wars needs lots of space and lots of characters to capture the charm of the "galaxy far, far away". I need Wookiees and droids and aliens and humans. Can I have just Luke and Old Ben...with no Han or Leia? No. You can't.

devilof76
05-02-2012, 10:41 AM
But with Sideshow figures starting to average $150 an up, you can only get 5-7 for the price of 4 $250 Hot Toys. But the Hot Toys figures aren't $250 a piece anyway. Luke is $150 per figure.


Interesting they finally come out and say this.

I still have my fingers crossed for Chewie (and Hoth Leia) from Hot Toys, and not Sideshow. That would give us ANH Luke, ANH Han, ANH Leia, ESB Luke, ESB Han, ESB Leia, ROTJ Luke, and a deluxe wookiee. It makes a lot of sense and I'm not going to duck until the sky actually falls.

Nice thinking but I don't see HT backing down the price of a Bespin Han to $150. They'll figure out a way to make it tempting at $250-$300. Two outfits, requiring you to spend more money on an extra body, etc.

I agree that SS prices are essentially merging with HT's. But I'm talking about the price to 'replace' what I already have. Granted a much better version, but still... HT Han is gonna cost 5 times what SS Bespin Han cost at the time. It will be 12 times better so I guess that's something.

It was said in an HT interview (link somewhere above :dunno) that they are only doing figures Sideshow has already released.

Sideshow has not released Arena Padme. This means HT won't release one either.

We actually don't know a whole lot. From what was reported by the folks who spoke with SSC last year the tidbits were that HT could only do humans, characters already done by Sideshow and would not compete with Sideshow directly.

Neither Sideshow or Hot Toys have confirmed anything really but if we go by that Dooku, Padme wouldn't fit.

meanstreak
05-02-2012, 01:03 PM
I have a feeling some of the meaning could be lost in translation also.

If Sideshow has done a Padme or something before, Hot Toys might be able to do a different version one. Or if they have done a Leia, they might be able to do a different version and so on. At least I hope that's the case.

Invictus Sol
05-02-2012, 01:06 PM
Yeah, hoping that's the case, too. And it may well be that Sideshow doesn't really want to tackle certain characters and is OK with Hot Toys doing so for them, or working in conjunction with Hot Toys like they've done with the clones.

Khev

Yeah, maybe for Chewbacca SSC and HT can split the cost of development, HT then builds it from the ground up, SSC releases it and then splits the profits as well.

Unless they give us two han figures. One with Bespin jacket the other with his Hoth snow suit.

That's my orignal theory to make Han a $300 figure, but someone said since Sideshow didn't make Hoth Han HT couldn't do it.

Who knows? We'll know better once Han is actually announced and we can see more direction of the line.

Khev
05-02-2012, 01:29 PM
It'd be interesting to know the exact details of that stipulation.

Technically Sideshow never made a "Battle Damaged Bespin Luke."

So maybe HT can make a Bespin Han with some snow boots and a parka as "extra" accessories. He actually first wore his "Bespin" attire on Hoth anyway.

As long as it isn't another Darth Maul I'm cool with it. I'd really like to see Hot Toys go further into the crazy alien Jedi characters, but that's just my rabid fascination to see if/how they pull them off.

Looking forward to Han and Anakin. :rock

Not so excited for the AOTC character though. If its Obi-Wan I'd prefer HT released the more iconic ROTS or Original Trilogy version. And since we're getting Luke and Han as the first two figures, no female character should come before Leia PERIOD! :lecture

sithlord13
05-02-2012, 01:52 PM
Rots anakin would be cool. Despite the bashing I love the look of anakin in ep3 and hot toys could get the sculpt right as we hope they will with han although I would prefer anh version as I only want one han. Padme is another I only have one version of and whilst I like my custom I would like a great arena
Padme.

Old Ben and Lando are the reasons why I hate PERS so much. I see nothing about either of them that needs improvment, and they'll both stick out for lack of it.

They could be painted better, but what can't? They are close enough in quality to the Bespin Luke prototype for me.

Those are two of my very favorite. Greedo and Hammerhead as well.

Wor-Gar
05-02-2012, 04:26 PM
Anakin lends himself to the same two-figure pack idea: clean, good Ani and a BD Sith-eyed Anakin.

Han, well, Bespin and Hoth of course is what we all want, but if they have to stick to what's been done then maybe the guys who said ANH/ESB Han are on the money. But then why didn't we get a ANH/ESB Luke?

I don't think we can cross the streams like that.

Why would you let a company take money that you could be making. From a business stance it makes complete sense.

I think that depends. Honestly I'd be surprised if it's as cut-and-dry as HT under no circumstances being allowed to do a character unless it's from SSC's past and in need of an update (as someone mentioned, SSC has never done a battle-damaged Bespin Luke).

SSC has to know that if they, for example, prevent HT from making a Leia so that they can do their own, then that Leia is going to be compared to HT's best work and if it's lacking in any way, they're going to be trashed and the figure probably will tank.

Really it'd be smarter for SSC (since honestly I can't see them competing with HT on the paint apps) to either let HT do the release of the human characters and take a cut, or work on the figure in concert, letting HT do the headscult/paint or learning from HT's production methods so that they can produce something of the same quality.

Basically, hoarding characters can cut both ways. It's great for SSC if they're able to match HT's quality but not so much if collectors find the sculpt and paint apps lacking.

First, LOL at the idea of Any Ot figures of the main cast Tanking.
SW has too many fans that will eat up complete crap with a spoon, just because it is OT SW, and then ask for seconds.

secondly, Have you seen the recent quality of 1/6th figures coming out of sideshow recently?

thirdly; HAVE YOU SEEN THE QUALITY OF 1/6TH FIGURES COMING OUT OF SIDESHOW LATELY?!

http://i922.photobucket.com/albums/ad62/sideshowpics_album/duke13.jpg

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j190/srobis2/postings/DSC_0342.jpg
fourthly, Hot toys has said they will be doing a MAXIMUM of 1-2 figures a year, and have just hinted at the next three. Sideshow has PLENTY of time to release whatever they like, and get it out on the market. once sideshow sells a figure, if a better product comes along later on and destroys the aftermarket value, they don't care. If you think otherwise, you're fooling yourself.

Fithly, Hot toys is NOT Infallible. Have you seen their Flop of an indy?
Good figure or not, it's a flop As Indy, especially for it's price.
Also, hearkening back to my first point, people still bought it up, regardless of it being a flop. why? Harrison ford. Or his stunt double anyways.

Lastly, saying sideshow has never done a "battle damaged Bespin luke" is splitting hairs. They've done a Bespin luke. The EX version came with a hand stump, and his bacta turniquette. So if you REALLY wanna go that route, sideshow DID do a battle damaged Like.

It's worth mentioning that Hot toys is not doing a "battle damaged Luke" figure either. They're doing a Luke skywalker DX figure.

I definitely get your points, Lerath666, and I never said HT was infallible and I guess should've proactively put in a disclaimer on their Indy since I knew it would come up. I'm just trying to make some general points but you have be like a ____ing lawyer on these boards sometimes.

The sculpts above are not bad, but like OSCORP says, a bit action figure-y. You wouldn't seriously compare them to say Heath Ledger or Jack Nicholson Joker, would you? Tobey McGuire Spider-Man or RDJ Iron Man? Their Hamill Luke may be a bit idealized, but certainly looks more realistic and convincing than either of those.

Yes, while there are plenty of completists that will buy anything, I think there are more collectors now that will say no to say a shoddy Leia likeness if the figure is $175.00 - $200.00. If Sideshow steps up their game and releases true likenesses with great paint apps and costumes, they have nothing to worry about. But who says they want to? For all we know, they're fine with letting Hot Toys put in the money for development and release and just take a cut for themselves with no risk.

As for the one or two figures a year, not sure why everyone brings that up. Sideshow's had the licence for what, six or seven years now? Do the collectors following them from the very beginning have a Chewie yet? C-3PO? R2? Seems to me releases in this line are on a really long release schedule as it is. Is it really that unimaginable that if SSC is leaving Leia to HT that they don't care that she won't be released until say 2014?

I like SSC a lot and they're getting a fair bit of my disposible cash but I don't buy that for a sec. They haven't done anything that is on par with the examples above in 1:6 scale for a human character. They're getting a lot better for sure, and stuff like Boba Fett and IG-88 are pretty outstanding (though I still wouldn't say for the price that say IG-88 compares that favourably with what HT is doing with Iron Man) but I'm very skeptical of them releasing a dead ringer Leia or any other human character.

Nah, they did a clean Luke with a hand stump accessory. We're wondering if HT can do a "clean" Bespin Han with parka and boots as accessories. Remember "Bespin" Han's outfit technically debuted on Hoth.

Sure it's not cut and dry , but HT still has to get SS permission first then still get LFL permission. So yeah SS has 100% control of what HT does. With the limited number of figures per year there are plenty of figures SS has made years ago that could be done again before they ever need to start doing figures that haven't been done.


Wait someone with prosthetics and lots of makeup is realistic? The joes look like action figures because they are action figures.

As for the release schedule the line would die if they put all the big hitters out in a row. Why everyone bring up chewy is funny, it not they don't want to do it , but they know there are many issues with doing it a full production run.

No argument there. My only point is SSC might be totally fine with letting HT take certain characters. There might lots of reasons that it makes sense for them to do so that we're not privy to.

I guess you're referring to HT's Jokers but in neither case is that a serious argument. Take a look at the likenesses to the actors and the make-up used in the movies and compare it to what HT was able to replicate in 1:6 form. It's actually pretty amazing work (if you want to make that a sticking point, then compare SSC's stuff to Christopher Reeve Superman, RDJ Iron Man, Tobey McGuire Spider-Man, etc.). In regards to the Joes, lerath666 brought them up as examples of work he felt compared favourably to HT's stuff, right? So that means I then have the right to compare the work?

Just wanted to point out that a couple of years ago, Chen said they were making a Commissioner Gordon figure too. So take this with a grain of salt.

I'm not very psyched about an Anakin figure. And as far as a character from Episode II? I'm guessing it's Mace Windu or Count Dooku. I'm really hoping they shoot for the ......less than wholesome Padme or whatever that outfit was called.

The Sideshow Windu is passable, and to be frank, the Hasbro version of Dooku, though a rubber head, that's hard to top. They scanned in Lee's face to make that happen. All you need to do is put the head on another body. Maybe you can touch up the paint but really there isn't a lot to do to make an acceptable 1/6 Dooku already.

I don't either. I don't think Sideshow would pass that up, and I don't really want one without a matching Hoth Luke.

Bespin Han with a good, plastic Han in carbonite is a lot more likely.

I wonder if they won't eventually start offering single figures. I can't think of how a second ANH Han, a second ANH Leia, or a second Jedi Luke would be worth the trouble. (Tatooine Luke would be great with an X-Wing Luke. Hoth Leia would be great if she came with a Bespin gown and portrait)

Power to ya, but I seriously doubt HT will do any 'Padme in a dress' variations.

I'm betting action oriented Padmes or.. nothing.

How would they handle Hoth Luke then? Odds are they wouldn't make a second ESB Luke (Hoth or X-Wing). If (and when) SS makes a Tauntaun, Hoth Han will look mighty fine on his mount. Maybe HT will take the HULK body, cover it in white fur and give us a Wampa? ;)

I think an SSC hoth luke and x-wing pilot are in the works...I remember a year or two back they offer a glimpse in a production blog about the outfits...no figures though. Anyone else remember this?

I recall a taun taun. They actually showed concept art / something of them in gear? Cool..............Hoth is by far my favorite piece of the SW films.

Do you guys think we will hear anything before Comic Con or get the debut of the next figure there?

Not sure, but tell Miranda hi for me... she keeps blowing kisses to me and it makes me feel selfconscious.

Maybe one reveal before SDCC. Hell, there's still half the stuff shown at last years con still isn't out yet. I wonder how Grevious is coming along. That's gotta be an engineering nightmare. I mean Hasbro could barely keep the 3 3/4" ones standing. I imagine this will be really hard to do. One loose joint and it'll never stand without a serious stand.

Yeah, I've been wondering the same thing for a while, too. And then you've got the four arms each holding a lightsaber (I'm assuming sculpted to the hand) as a necessary option, too. Can't imagine some of the frustrations they must be going through trying to make a stable figure that they won't have to worry about getting returned all the time due to breakage.

So, does anyone have a guess for when we'll see Anakin?

Hopefully they'll show a new Star Wars figure at SDCC. It'll probably be Han Solo or Anakin,

I hope so. Either one would be fine, but I'm dying to see Anakin. The PT was "my Star Wars" (I'm only 23), so I have a connection to those incarnations of the characters over most OT characters. Still, Han isn't too far behind, I'm just a little worried like everyone else that Hot Toys will sculpt an off likeness again. So I almost want to delay seeing him longer because it's a bit tense, lol.
