Hot Toys’ ‘Star Wars’ Rey figure gets an upgrade (with a lightsaber)

by  in Comic News Comment

If you weren’t already planning to buy the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rey figure from Hot Toys, you probably will now, as the collectible has received substantial upgrades.

First, you can forget the “interchangeable looks,” as you’ll now be able to simply apply the desert gear head wrap with goggles to the headsculpt. Second, and most importantly, Luke Skywalker’s blue lightsaber will be included among Rey’s accessories (no need to worry about spoilers now, right?).

To recap, the 1/6th-scale figure also comes with six interchangeable palms, a staff with strap, a blaster pistol, a backpack with accessories, and a display stand. If you’ve already preordered the Rey figure, or the Rey and BB-8 Collectible Set, don’t worry: The upgrades will be included.

The Rey figure is expected to ship in the second or third quarter of this year.
