Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys announce that they are teaming up to bring collectors NEW 1:6th scale STAR WARS action figures. The two companies have worked together successfully for many years, supporting one another with shared licensing opportunities, global distribution support, customer service, and of course, creative collaborations. With this new collaboration, Sideshow and Hot Toys have come together in a way that best utilizes the strengths of each company, redefining the boundaries and potential of their joint efforts with licensed figures.
"This is an exciting evolution of the natural relationship between Sideshow and Hot Toys, and an exciting development for collectors," explains Greg Anzalone, CEO & President of Sideshow Collectibles. "For the first time ever, our two companies will be working simultaneously on complementary products for key properties, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, DC, Marvel, and others. It's a refreshing way for us to look at the collectibles business, bridging the creative powers of artists around the globe, so that we can bring to life many exciting new products."
"This is a very exciting collaboration between our long-term partner, Sideshow, and us. As a Star Wars super-fan, it is my dream to produce the 1:6th scale collectible figures of the Star Wars saga. We would like to express our gratitude to the Sideshow team, especially Greg, Tom and Brant to give us this valuable opportunity to bring the Star Wars property to the 1/6th scale world. We hope that this collaboration will bring about a new landscape in the collectible industry for truly unveiling our realistic likeness and detailed craftsmanship, and we are looking forward to bringing about more exciting products through this collaboration to our collectors in the near future", said Howard Chan, Founder & CEO of Hot Toys Limited.
Collectors will get their first glimpse of the new collaborative efforts at San Diego Comic-Con, July 20 - 24. Attendees will be able to get their first view of Hot Toys' DX Bespin Luke Skywalker Star Wars Sixth Scale Figure. The Hot Toys' Bespin Luke will be displayed alongside Sideshow's newest 1:6th scale figures, including Boba Fett, IG-88, General Grievous, and much more.
