One of the best things about May the 4th (or Star Wars Day, as all dutiful geeks refer to it), is the new collectibles reveals. Companies like Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys and Hasbro always have some big new reveals to drop, and 2021 is no exception.
From a gorgeous Star Wars Rebels-inspired Ahsoka Tano statue to the various new additions to Hasbro’s Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary lineup, we’re breaking down all the coolest and most jaw-dropping Star Wars toys revealed this year.
First, check out the slideshow gallery below for a look at the high-end statues and figures teased by Sideshow, Hot Toys, Gentle Giant and Regal Robot:
TV-inspired collectibles clearly dominated this year’s crop. Sideshow revealed the long-awaited Ahsoka Tano Premium Format Figure, a statue that offers a more realistic take on Ahsoka’s animated Rebels look rather than opting for her live-action look. Sideshow is also launching a new line of 1:6 scale Clone wars figures. Unlike the Hot Toys Clone Wars line, these figures will replicate the stylized, angular look of the animated series.
Hot Toys continues to focus plenty of attention on The Mandalorian. The company will finally be selling a standalone 1:6 scale version of Grogu and his hover pram, a figure that was originally included only with the Beskar Armor Din Djarin figure. Hot Toys is also teasing a 1:6 scale Blurrg figure, with an optional Durasteel Armor Mando figure for good measure.
And if you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own holochess table, Regal Robot’s latest Star Wars release has you covered, though it’ll cost you quite a few Republic credits.
Since Hasbro revealed dozens of new images of upcoming Star Wars figures, we’ve gathered all those announcements in a separate gallery below:
In addition to new figures in the Vintage Collection and Black Series lines, Hasbro also revealed a life-size, wearable Death Watch helmet and a new series of colorful prototype figures aimed at mimicking the look of unpainted factory samples.
