star wars Ahsoka series will soon be streaming on Disney+, and Sideshow Collectibles has the perfect Hot Toys figure for fans eagerly awaiting the upcoming series. Set to star actress Rosario Dawson in the title role during the New Republic era, Ahsoka will effectively continue to dangle plot threads Star Wars Rebels animated series in which the outcast Jedi appeared. However, Ahsoka Tano originally starred The Clone Wars animated series voiced by Ashley Eckstein, and her action figure depicting her evolution at the end of the war is too perfect not to have on the shelf.
Posted by Sideshow collectibles on Twitter, their Hot Toys sixth scale action figure of Ahsoka is quite impressive. Wearing the costume she wore during the Siege of Mandalore, the figure is meant to resemble a live-action version of Ahsoka during her fight alongside the 332nd Clone Company to free Mandalore from Maul and his crime syndicates. The video can be seen below:
Acting as her final mission before the end of the Clone Wars, the figure also comes with Ahsoka’s blue-bladed lightsaber with motion effects, a thermal detonator, an interchangeable holo-projector, 7 different hands and 28 points of articulation for a variety of poses on a very sleek gray and black base. The Ahsoka Hoy Toys figure is on sale now for $250 on the Sideshow website.
Will the Ahsoka series feature a Clone Wars reunion?
Though Ahsoka series takes place approximately 30 years after the events of Clone Wars, it would be very satisfying to see Temuera Morrison play Clone Commander Rex. After the Siege of Mandalore, Ahsoka removed Rex’s inhibitor in the middle of Order 66, and the two were able to escape the clones that had turned on them. While both Rex and Ahsoka would go on to help the growing rebellion, there are gaps in Ahsoka’s story as to where she was during the original trilogy.
With any luck, Ahsoka will honor the legacy of Clone Wars just as much as Star Wars Rebels with its confirmed returning characters like Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, Grand Admiral Thrawn and more. In the meantime, Star wars fans can get their hands on this must-have Ahsoka Tano Hot Toys figure ahead of the upcoming series. Ahsoka will be released on Disney+ on August 23.
