Which Ones Will You Be Adding To Your Collection?

Hot Toys is known for manufacturing high-quality Star Wars collectibles and in recent years they have dedicated special attention to the Attack of the Clones line with previous figures like Yoda, Count Dooku, and Jango Fett, the latter still being up for preorder at Sideshow collectibles.

Hot Toys had a huge surprise for prequel fans that enjoy collecting these high-end figures amidst the celebration of Star Wars Day. The announcement included C3PO, R2-D2, Battle Droid (Geonosis), Clone Trooper, and Clone Pilot, coming all to 1/6 scale soon. It also teased that we might be getting Mace Windu and B2 Super Battle Droids in the near future.

C3PO

It is finally happening! After a long wait and many years of fans asking for a Hot Toys version of C3PO, the time finally came for a fresher version of the droid compared with other 1/6 scale C3POs that have been released by other brands before. Even if the Attack of the Clones version is not what many would expect. First-glimpse, the figure looks solid and so far it has received good feedback from reviewers.

The all-new C-3PO 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure is skillfully crafted in diecast material featuring detailed mechanical design with amazing weathering effects, LED light-up eyes, a blaster, an interchangeable Battle Droid head, and a figure base, and specially designed commemorative packaging.

What's in the Box?

The C-3PO 1/6 Scale Figure features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of C-3PO in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Meticulously crafted mechanical head with LED light-up function (yellow light, battery operated)
  • Beautiful recreation of recycled scrap metal in bronze, reddish-brown & silver applied with weathering effects
  • Approximately 29cm tall
  • Newly developed body with over 26 points of articulations
  • Highly detailed mechanical body design with real-like wires at waist
  • Contains diecast material
  • Six mechanical interchangeable hands including:
  • One (1) pair of relaxed hands
  • One (1) rifle holding right hand
  • Three (3) gesture hands
  • Special package design with Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary logo

R2-D2

R2-D2 has been previously released by Hot Toys on two occasions, an Empire Strikes Back and a The Force Awakens version. If you have not had the chance to pick up the legendary droid of the Skywalker father and son, this is your chance to get a detailed 1/6 scale R2 with multiple pick arms to display in your Star Wars shrine.

What's in the Box?

The R2-D2 1/6 Scale Figure features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of R2-D2 in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Meticulously crafted diecast metal dome features 360° horizontal spin design
  • Skillfully applied with realistic weathering effects

  • One (1) articulated and retractable center tread leg
  • One (1) extending periscope

  • Special package design with Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary logo

Battle Droid (Geonosis)

The incompetent but funny warriors of the Separatist Alliance will also be joining the line-up to complete your dioramas of the Geonosis Arena Battle. According to the Sideshow website, it features a new mechanical structure with exceptional articulations. This solves a problem that was a headache to collectors that owned other 1/6 scale versions of the Battle Droid and they could now manage to make their figures stand on their feet.

What's on the Box?

The Battle Droid (Geonosis) 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Battle Droid (Geonosis) in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Beautifully crafted head and armors in reddish-brown applied with weathering effects
  • Approximately 31cm tall in standing pose; approximately 14cm tall after bending
  • Newly developed body with over 26 points of articulation
  • Highly accurate mechanical body design
  • One (1) pair of articulated mechanical graspers
  • Enhanced articulations on waist which allow flexible movement including fully bending
  • Special package design with Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary logo

Clone Trooper

It's happening! Your 501st Clone Legion collection will be complemented by some semi-shinies that can fit any display. Whether it is the Battle of Geonosis, the Siege of Mandalore, the March on the Jedi Temple, or even just for some stoic poses in two different stages of the Clone Wars, the new Clone Trooper is full of possibilities with his interchangeable Phase 2 helmet. So your imagination will be the limit for this piece!

What's in the Box?

The Clone Trooper 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Clone Trooper in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Finely crafted Clone Trooper (Phase 1) helmet with weathering effects
  • Skillfully applied weathering effects on armors, weapons, and accessories
  • Body with over 30 points of articulations
  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Eight (8) pieces of interchangeable gloved hands including:
  • One (1) pair of hands for holding guns
  • One (1) pair of relaxed hands
  • Two (2) pairs of gesture hands
  • Special package design with Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary logo

Clone Pilot

The Clone Pilot came along with this new wave of Attack of the Clones figures and just like the Clone Trooper, you are given complete agency over what stage of the Clone Wars you want your Clone to be based on. The interchangeable helmet offers the opportunity to deviate from the Battle of Geonosis and the early stages of the Clone Wars and, if you wish so, display your pilot in your The Clone Wars or Revenge of the Sith display.

What's in the Box?

The Clone Pilot 1/6 Scale Collectible Figure features:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Clone Pilot in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Finely crafted Clone Trooper helmet (Phase I) with pattern and weathering effects
  • Specially applied weathering effects on armor, weapons, and accessories
  • Body with over 30 points of articulations
  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Six (6) interchangeable gloved hands including:
  • One (1) pair of hands for holding guns
  • One (1) pair of relaxed hands
  • One (1) pair of gesture hands
  • Special package design with Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary logo

Teases: B2 Super Battle Droid, Mace Windu, and Clone Commander. But where is Padmé?

In the pictures displaying the new five releases already available for pre-order, we got a tease in the background of other figures that could be announced soon. The pictures show a B2 Super Battle Droid, Mace Windu, and a Clone Commander. Hot Toys has previously teased expected releases using promotional pictures of other figures in the line in the past, as happened with Clone Wars Season 7 Ahsoka Tano and the tease of Darth Maul. 

On May 5th Hot Toys announced through their official Facebook page that more announcements on this line will be dropping soon. If it in fact ends up being these three figures, it will be good news for the fans that have long awaited for a 1/6 scale Mace Windu to complete their Jedi collection, as well as the army-building collectors expecting to add many B2 Battle Droid and the Clone Commander to their displays.

These pictures must be taken cautiously in any case. Since the presentation of Padmé in 2019 we have not received any news on when the Senator from Naboo would be getting her own high-end figure, or if it will even happen at all. There are some fans still expecting to include one of the most important characters in the prequels to their collections, the three-year wait on Padmé even led to collectors treating her release as an April Fools joke in Facebook groups. With some luck, she will also be hitting pre-order soon. Will she also be announced next?

Will you be starting your collection with these new releases? Which Star Wars character are you looking forward to the most to get its own Hot Toys release in the future?
