Hot Toys Chubby Figures
« on: October 23, 2006, 06:23 PM »
As mentioned by Jesse James on JD's front page, Slave1.jp has some images about the upcoming Hot Toys Chubby Figures.  It appears they will be released in December. 

These are so bizarre looking - I must have them!  :D

I like the Obi Wan and the Grievous. Very different Star Wars item.

So it looks like they are Russian Dolls. Is that correct? I love this advert image.

They remind me of these that I have seen on eBay but better.

Those are neat.  If they had reversed the order of the dolls (ie. made Vader the large one and young Anakin the small one), I'd be much more tempted to grab a set.

I got a chubby just thinking about these today...

haha, I couldn't resist it.

These are kind of cute, but the Anakin one I do agree with you on Jesse and I'd have maybe caved and tried to track that one down had it been Vader first then down to little Ani...  Otherwise these are just gonna be a pass for me, but they're still interesting nonetheless.

I liked Grievous where they looked at him in various forms of media, not just the character as he appeared in the film, and things.  I thought that was unique.

Don't they remind anyone else of the burger king toys?  Yeah I know they have the added feature of being stackable, but I look at the Vader and think BK.  The ad is cool enough, for sure (thanks Simon) but I think I can pass on these.  Might get the Vader set if anything, but no pressing need (he says now).

So cute! ;D My favorites are Obi, 3P0, and the Wookiees.

$110 is too expensive for me though. :-\

I'm guessing there will be 2 sets to a box. If enough people go in together, it shouldn't be too bad of a deal...
