Hot Toys 1/6 "Anakin Skywalker" in ROTS

Standard box package by Hot Toys for its Star Wars series..Nothing special at all!!

Take a closer look at the head sculpt..It really looks like Hayden Christensen in person. As usual, the paint work and texture of the head are excellent.

For Jedi robe, the hood has thin wire which allows you make any style you want for display or photo shoot.

His costume is very fit and well replicated. It also doesn't restrict the overall articulation of the figure.

There is an extra hilt with removable laser blade which you can hang it on Anakin's belt.

The hair sculpt looks very natural with right amount of color application and hairline is convincing too.

Anakin's leather-like belt is fastened with Velcro and his gauntlet can be removed for swapping the mechno-arm or the arm for holding light saber (light up).

I love the leather-like boots as they look very realistic. Most importantly, they don't affect the ankle articulation.

You can get a lot of cool poses from the figure as it has tight joints. No display stand is needed here.

Just took a few more pictures of Anakin wielding his light saber :)

Not forget to mention that the facial expression is also a big plus point to the figure. No matter from which angle you see, the figure looks awesome!!

My favorite light saber here is the curved-hilt light saber of Count Dooku. Its design is very unique as compared to Anakin's light saber.

Every finger of the mechno-arm is articulated. As the arm is made of plastic, you have to handle it with care especially when you want to connect it to the figure.

I also tested the arm which holds the light saber (light up) and it works. The light is pretty bright indeed. Lastly, I highly recommend you to get this figure if you are a huge Star Wars fan.

Leon, the light up saber is very common as HT has released that with other characters for a long time. I bought this figure is mainly for the head sculpt likeness..

The Count Dooku saber is a nice bonus. It brings back memories of Anakin decapitating Count Dooku with both sabers. Well made from the sculpt to robe and the mechanical arms. Prelude to Vader : )

Yes Dennis, this is the best 1/6 Anakin figure in current market :P
