Hot Toys reveals a slew of new Star Wars figures for May the 4th

It’s that time of year once more, and the Star Wars news is flying. There’s a new Kenobi trailer, and of course a load of new merchandise reveals.

May the merch be with you

Yes, it’s still kind of cringy, but nevertheless it is May the 4th. That’s the yearly celebration of all things Star Wars, for the uninitiated. And while it means new trailers, and reminiscing and chatting about the movies and TV shows past, it also means merchandise. Lots and lots of merchandise.

We’ve seen a bunch of Hasbro announcements so far today, and while those might be the glut of what has been revealed, it’s by no means the most impressive. Those figures, of course, come out of Hot Toys and their retailing partners at Sideshow.

The high-end toy company has no fewer than 5 figures on tap for reveals today. And if you’re a fan of the prequels, you’re gonna be happy. Actually, if you’re specifically a fan of Episode II, you’re going to be happy, because they all spin out of that film.

Apparently it’s the 20th anniversary of Attack of the Clones, and there are some pretty kick-butt collectibles hitting. No really, even if you’re not a fan of AotC, I think you’re pretty likely to dig these.
