Hot Toys Hitches a Ride on the Dewback with New Star Wars Release 

Coast in the sands of Tatooine in style with the help of a creature from the Star Wars  Universe with a new Hot Toys release

The 1/6 scale line of action figures from Hot Toys has always been an impressive set of collectibles. However, when Hot Toys' adds new companion vehicles for then, it takes them to completely new heights. Fans recently saw a Star Wars: A New Hope 1/6 Scale Sandtrooper Sergeant arrive as he searches for droids on Tatooine. It looks like this soldier could use some extra means of transportation as the infamous Dewback comes to life. The reliable mounts are an iconic and popular creature from Star Wars, and Hot Toys is putting them back into the hands of collectors. Measuring 31" long and 14" tall, the sand of Tatooine will have nothing on them, and two versions will be released. A deluxe figure will feature a couple of swappable parts, and a Sandtrooper bundle can also be acquired, giving both mount and rider in one haul.  These beauties come in at $455 or $485 with a December 2024 release, which can be found here.
