Sideshow-Tie-Fighter-Pilot-1

Sideshow Collectibles has revealed their Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot 1/6th scale figure from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The figure is expected to ship in the 4th Quarter 2015 and can currently be pre-ordered for $199.99.

Dispatched under the direct command of Darth Vader during the Battle of Yavin IV, high-ranking and fearless Imperial TIE Fighter pilots swarmed the skies to defend the Death Star from Rebel assault.

Interchangeable wrist gauntlets allow dexterity for handling TIE Fighter controls, and positive gravity pressure boots keep him grounded in all situations. Although typically found in the cockpit, Sideshow’s Exclusive TIE Fighter Pilot also comes armed with a ‘retro’ inspired blaster – a nostalgic feature Star Wars collectors are sure to enjoy.

REVIEW: Hot Toys’ The Lone Ranger – Tonto

Hot-Toys-Lone-Ranger-Tonto-09

Background

In Disney's The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp gives a standout performance as the peculiar Native American, Tonto. Despite their initial differences, Tonto has partnered with his 'Kemo Sabe', the Lone Ranger, and together they ride on an adventure to bring justice to the Old West.

Released theatrically in the United States on July 3rd 2013, The Lone Ranger was the big budget film the character had been waiting for since its inception in 1933. Teamed up with a number of collectibles for young and old alike, Hot Toys took a stab at producing a high-end 1/6th scale figure based on The Lone Ranger’s somewhat trusted pal Tonto.

Sideshow Collectibles has provided us with the Tonto figure for review purposes.
