Star Wars fans are patiently waiting for December 16th...for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to hit theaters. But folks still want to know about all of the new characters. One of the most exciting new characters introduced in this epic film is Chirrut Îmwe, a blind warrior monk from Jedha. Chirrut believes all living things are connected through the Force, and his profound spirituality makes him a formidable warrior crucial to the Rebels' desperate attempt to steal the plans of the Empire's devastating super-weapon – the Death Star.
So, Hot Toys has announced the 1/6th scale collectible figure of Chirrut Îmwe. The figure is specially crafted based on the character's appearance in the movie, featuring a newly developed head sculpt based on famed Hong Kong actor and martial artist Donnie Yen as Chirrut, a meticulously tailored costume, detailed weapons and accessories including a staff and a crossbow, and a specially designed figure stand with movie logo. There's also a Deluxe Version available, which will exclusively include a diorama figure base with a Stormtrooper helmet and a special package design inspired by traditional Asian art.
