A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think -- use your instincts." On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery. The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger. They refused to allow Qui-Gon to train Anakin, but rescinded their decision to fulfill Qui-Gon's dying wish.
Now that you have that background - because I'm sure you don't remember The Phantom Menace - Hot Toys has announced their 1/6th scale collectible figure of Qui-Gon Jinn from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
Skillfully crafted based on the appearance of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn in the film, this 1/6th scale collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt, finely tailored Jedi robe and tunic, a desert poncho, a LED light-up lightsaber, a Comlink, a grappling hook, a hologram projector with interchangeable holograms, and a themed figure base.
You can currently pre-order this figure over at Sideshow Collectibles for $235.00. It's expected to begin shipping in Q1 of 2020.
