Happy 30th birthday Return of the Jedi
. You finished off the initial Star Wars trilogy with great gusto and a satisfying ending for Anakin Skywalker. To celebrate, Sideshow Collectibles has created a new 1/6 scale action figure of Darth Vader. This Sith Lord features a fully articulated body, fabric body suit and cape, detailed armor and gloves, head with helmet and mask, an additional Anakin head, detailed chest and belt boxes, interchangeable hands, a light saber, light saber handle, light-up display base, a light-up meditation chamber display base for his helmet and mask, and a severed arm stub. He’s up for preorder
now with an arrival date of January.
Earlier this month we told you about the new DC Universe series of 1/6 scale figures from Sideshow Collectibles. The company has now released new pics of its first character in the line, The Joker. The regular version of the clown prince of crime will feature two head sculpts, playing cards, a straight razor, dynamite, a lighter, revolver with BANG! flag, a tailored fabric costume, cane, multiple hands, and a display base. The Sideshow exclusive will also include some fish accessories. He’s available here
for pre-order and will ship in August.
Most 1/6 scale action figures stand around 12-inches tall. This one is a bit shorter. The creature who taught Luke Skywalker how to be a Jedi knight will soon get a deluxe action figure from the fine folks at Sideshow Collectibles. He’ll come with two heads, a cloth costume, a lightsaber, a cane, swappable hands and feet, a jedi bar stool and comfy space age Laz-Y-Boy chair. If you purchase him directly from Sideshow, they’ll throw in an exclusive holocron cube. He’ll release in June or you can pre-order him here
As part of their 12 Days of Sideshow
promotion, Sideshow Collectibles showed off these new pics of the upcoming line of DC Comics 12-inch figures. The company didn’t give any other details about the new line other than these pics, but we should hear something soon.
