Hot Toys has revealed a new deluxe collectible figure based on Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Here’s Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectible’s official description of the Force-faithful monk’s figure from their official website:
"I fear nothing. All is as the Force wills it."
Fans worldwide are stoked about a new adventure in a galaxy far, far away - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! 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.
In celebration of the famed Hong Kong actor and martial artist Donnie Yen starring as the spiritual warrior Chirrut, Hot Toys is excited to present a special Deluxe version of the sixth scale Chirrut Îmwe only available in selected markets. This extremely life-like collectible figure is specially crafted based on the character's appearance in the film, featuring a newly developed head sculpt, a meticulously tailored costume, detailed weapons, and accessories including a staff and a crossbow. This Deluxe Version will exclusively include a diorama figure base with a Stormtrooper helmet and a special package design inspired by traditional Asian art!
It is time to #GoRogue and expand your Star Wars Hot Toys collection!
The Chirrut Imwe figure is available to pre-order now and is expected to be released in summer 2017. Check out the preview images in the gallery below.
