The Clone Wars’ Ahsoka & Clone Trooper figures unveiled by Hot Toys!
While the series may have come to an end, Hot Toys has more exciting figures from the fan-favorite series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, including protagonist Ahsoka Tano from her final season appearance and Clone Troopers from the 501st Battalion. The figures, along with previous releases in The Clone Wars line, can be viewed in the gallery below!
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. Alongside Anakin, she grew from headstrong student into a mature leader. But her destiny laid along a different path than the Jedi. The greatly detailed collectible figure is specially crafted with authentic styling featuring a skillfully crafted head sculpt with stunning likeness and articulated head-tails, specialized body to portray Ahsoka’s physique, finely tailored outfit and armor pieces, Ahsoka’s iconic lightsabers, a cloak, and a display base!
Led by Captain Rex, the 501st Legion is a tight-knit squadron of clone troopers known for strength of character and unwavering loyalty. Upon being reunited with Ahsoka Tano, the soldiers of the 501st show their allegiance to their former commander by altering their clone armor in an homage for her Togruta markings. The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the iconic Clone Troopers in Star Wars: The Clone Wars featuring meticulously crafted and finely detailed recreation of Clone Trooper armor and helmet, skillfully applied weathering effects, a range of weapons, a jetpack and a display base!
The Deluxe Version will exclusively include an interchangeable Phase 1 Clone Trooper helmet, an orange patterned Clone Trooper helmet, a backpack with cover and a rotary blaster cannon for sophisticated collectors!
From Dave Filoni, director and executive producer of The Mandalorian, the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars continued the storylines introduced in the original series, exploring the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
The 12-episode season featured the voices of Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and the clone troopers, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan, and Sam Witwer as Maul.
Created by George Lucas, the show first aired in 2008 and became an entry point into Star Wars for an entire generation, following fan-favorites like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while introducing major new characters like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. It became a multi-Emmy winner and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.
Even though The Clone Wars will be having its epic conclusion this year, it appears it won’t be the end for the animated Star Wars universe as SWNN has also revealed that a sequel series to Rebels is currently in development to pick up the story of Ahsoka from the series finale and could premiere as early as this year.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars recently concluded its seven-season run on Disney+ and is available to stream in its entirety on the platform.
Both figures are set to hit shelves sometime between late 2021 and early 2022!
