Even though Star Wars: Rebels was kind of silly, especially with the helicopter lightsabers, the Inquisitors were an excellent addition to the lore overall. Using Force-sensitive beings to hunt down the remaining Jedi is an intelligent move. It’s too bad that the character designs didn’t work out when the Grand Inquisitor jumped from CGI to live-action.

If you were a fan of the not-very-egg-shaped Grand Inquisitor from Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series, then this announcement from Hot Toys is all you! The character, complete with an LED lightsaber and toned-down alien features, is coming to the company’s line of 1/6th scale premium action figures. The Grand Inquisitor can be pre-ordered right now through Sideshow Collectibles. He is priced at $260 and has an expected ship date between October 2023 and March 2024.

The Pau’an is the leader of an elite cadre of Force-sensitive interrogators and hunters tasked with tracking down Jedi survivors who escaped Order 66. He reports directly to Darth Vader. Like his superior, the Inquisitor is an intimidating figure, dressed in black and wielding a red, double-bladed lightsaber.

If the Disney+ version of the character is your thing, then you’ll want to know that he comes with these parts and accessories:

If I were collecting Star Wars Hot Toys figures, I’d probably get the Inquisitor just for his lightsaber. It could look cool being brandished by Darth Maul, Vader, or even Kylo Ren. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
