When the Tusken Raiders, a staple of Star Wars since the very first film, showed up in the Season 2 Premiere of The Mandalorian a few weeks ago, I became very excited. I knew that the chances of Hot Toys announcing new Sixth Scale figures of the iconic characters had risen considerably. That said, I am still pretty surprised that this announcement came so soon!

The Tusken Raiders, or the Sand People as they were called in Episode IV: A New Hope, have been one of the most popular races in the entire Star Wars franchise. There’s just something about the non-verbal, masked schtick that allows fans to project whatever they want on the characters, making their appearances more fun and interesting.

 

Their most recent appearance in The Mandalorian managed to give them something of a spotlight, giving them the chance to not be the one-note “scary desert people” that they’ve often appeared to be. Hot Toys producing them now is perfect timing, as fans like me feel like the Tusken Raiders are unique characters now and not just a plot device.

As usual, Hot Toys has recreated the Raiders perfectly, making the temptation for army building extremely strong. After all, having one Tusken Raider would just feel weird. We collectors clearly need at least three on the shelf.

Star War: The Mandalorian – 1/6th scale Tusken Raider™ Collectible Figure 

Fearsome desert savages inhabiting the rocky deserts, Tusken Raiders™ are the foremost reason Tatooine™ colonists do not wander far from their isolated communities. Extremely territorial and xenophobic, Tusken Raiders will attack with very little provocation. Covered from head-to-foot in tattered rags and robes, Tusken Raiders — or Sand People as they are also known — brandish a deadly bladed club known as a gaderffii.

Today Hot Toys is delighted to continue expanding its Star Wars collection series by officially introducing the new 1/6th scale Tusken Raider collectible figure inspired by the acclaimed Star Wars™ series The Mandalorian™.  

The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of the Tusken Raider. Highlighting the features are the newly developed head sculpt with tattered rags, skillfully tailored outfit, belt and bandolier, the iconic gaderffii and rifle, and a display base.

They’re raiders, it’s true, but these collectible figures will be great additions to any Star Wars collection!
