Ahsoka Tano, as we knew her in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is back! She joins Anakin and Obi-Wan in Sideshow Collectible’s Sixth Scale action figure line. Snips measures 12″ tall and features all the same angular lines from the TV show. This isn’t some reimagining; she’s the same Ahsoka fans grew to love so many years ago. The figure will ship out next year between April and June. She can be pre-ordered now for $260.
Instead of including detachable blades, Sideshow throws in ignited and bladeless lightsaber hilts. I’ve had a couple of 1/6th scale Star Wars figures in the past that came with removable blades, and on more than one occasion, the male end blade broke. Trying to repair a broken blade piece is a pain. So, having both types included is a great addition.
Captain Rex makes a cameo with Ahsoka. He is included as a small “holographic” figure accessory. Rex looks surprisingly detailed, considering he will only be maybe a centimeter tall. Unfortunately, there are no light-up features with Ahsoka’s sabers or Holo Rex.
This articulated figure features a stylized headsculpt with her signature blue and white striped montrals™ and lekku™. Her carefully tailored fabric costume consists of a maroon bodysuit, dark gray leggings, and a belt with hooks for her lightsaber hilts. Ahsoka Tano additionally has seamless joints in her unique orange complexion, and sculpted arm guards and boots complete her look.
Ahsoka comes with the following accessories:
- Four (4) pairs of hands
– Grip hands
– Neutral hands
– Open gesture hands
– Fist hands
- One (1) fabric Tunic
- One (1) pair of fabric pants
- One (1) belt w/ fabric apron and sculpted accessories
- One (1) pair of gauntlets
- One (1) pair of Boots
- Two (2) lightsaber hilts
- Two (2) ignited lightsabers
- Holoprojector with Captain Rex Hologram
- Specially designed figure stand
