For the last three years, two things have been synonymous with December: the holidays and Star Wars. As if we weren’t hyped about The Last Jedi enough thanks to last Monday’s trailer, Hot Toys has released new figures from the film. Cuteness is represented in both the First Order and the Resistance with a two-figure set of BB-8 and BB-9E. And for those of you that have either seen or heard of the Star Wars Holiday Special, one of its saving graces was the debut of Boba Fett. Now you can own him thanks to the sixth scale figure based on that appearance.

Based on an animated interlude during the special, here is Boba Fett in all his clashing color glory. Kudos to Hot Toys for being able to make something awesome looking out of this:

The cool thing with the figure is that Boba originally wore his father’s helmet before making his own. It’s a great homage. The figure comes with a plasma rifle, a blaster, his jetpack, 4 sets of interchangeable hands, and a stand adorned with the Mandalorian symbol.

The droids come in a two pack, which makes perfect sense. Why wouldn’t you want to display the yin and yang of new Star Wars movies? Rey and Kylo? Nah, THIS is where the real drama will take place. The figures come with circular stands, open and closed claws, and a lighter for BB-8 so you can give thumbs up as needed. The two-pack also comes with a mouse droid.

Whether you’re preparing for The Last Jedi or your yearly viewing of the Holiday Special, these figures can help with the process.

You can check out more pictures in the gallery below, and can pre-order both figures at Sideshow Collectibles here and here.

So what do you think? Are you going to relive the Holiday Special with Boba Fett? Are these droids the ones you are looking for (I know, I know, but it’s RIGHT there)? Let me know on Twitter @donnielederer or sound off in the comments below.
