Now you can take home a piece of science fiction's most epic saga with these stunning sixth scale figurines from Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles.

10 KYLO REN

Sideshow

A powerful masked warrior first introduced in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren has only grown stronger in the Dark Side of the Force since Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Once the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, he shed the name Ben Solo and all ties to the Light Side when he defied Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and sought the tutelage of Supreme Leader Snoke.

This imposing sixth scale figure shows Kylo Ren as he appeared in The Last Jedi, favoring a cloak and unmasked visage, looking well on his way to challenging Darth Vader as the most iconic villain in the Star Wars Saga. Our only gripe is that the facial features don't quite match actor Adam Driver's likeness, but we do love the magnetically detachable cape and LED lightsaber effect!

9 COUNT DOOKU

Sideshow

Never has the menace and elegance of Count Dooku been so clearly brought to life as in this sixth scale figure by Hot Toys. A central figure in the Clone Wars and Darth Sidious's plot to eradicate the Jedi Order, Count Dooku was the leader of the Separatist Movement and Sidious's apprentice. Once a Jedi, he became disillusioned with their ways and sought a path that would gain him more power and influence.

From the fabric of his majestic cape, to its delicate clasp, and the exquisite curve of his signature pistol-gripped lightsaber, no detail has been spared with this homage to the Sith Lord. It comes with a series of detachable hands, as well as Force Lightning additions, to properly convey the Count's abilities. It also bears a striking resemblance to the late Sir Christopher Lee!

8 LEIA ORGANA

Sideshow

An enduring symbol of freedom in the Star Wars galaxy for decades, it's only fitting that when the First Order rises to power, Leia Organa fights against it just as she did in the Galactic Civil War against The Empire. A sagacious general and natural leader, she helps keep the Resistance one step ahead of the First Order throughout The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Hot Toys has done a remarkable job paying homage to the late Carrie Fisher with this stunning sixth scale figure of Leia Organa as she appeared in The Last Jedi. Not only does it bear an incredible likeness to the beloved actress, but it manages to capture her many changing expressions with a variety of hand swaps.

7 OBI-WAN KENOBI

Sideshow

Famous Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, legendary General in the Grand Army of the Republic, and hero of the Clone Wars springs into action with his own sixth scale figure. The former apprentice of Qui-Gon Jinn had to mature quickly when his master was killed by a mysterious Sith Lord, leaving him responsible for training the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.

Obi-Wan is seen here as he looks in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when he is forced to battle his apprentice Anakin on the lava planet of Mustafar. His Jedi tunic and robes have been painstakingly recreated, and he comes with many hand swaps and accessories to make him perfect for action poses. Best of all, he looks exactly like fan-favorite Ewan McGregor.

6 BOBA FETT

Sideshow

The most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy caused quite a stir when he first appeared on screen in The Empire Strikes Back, when the might of the Empire was at its peak. Since then, he's become a favorite character for fans eager to follow his exploits with the Galactic Empire and the criminal underworld. Though he appears mysterious, true fans know his origins began during the Clone Wars, when his father became an integral part of the galaxy-wide conflict.

Fett is seen here as he appears in The Empire Strikes Back, with his signature Mandalorian Armor, mantle, and jetpack. This Deluxe Edition figure allows you to swap out pieces of his armor and helmet to recreate an exclusive "movie pre-production" look never before seen.

5 ANAKIN SKYWALKER

Sideshow

Once the best hope for achieving balance in the Force, Anakin Skywalker was a Jedi Knight with a bright future. But the pressures of being the Chosen One, combined with an increasing hostility to the rigid edicts of the Jedi Order, made him easily corrupted by Darth Sidious. He became the Sith Lord's apprentice and helped him annihilate the Jedi and secure the first Galactic Empire.

Hot Toys has recreated Anakin Skywalker in this sixth scale figure as he appeared in Revenge of the Sith, seduced by the Dark Side. From his voluminous robes and leather glove that encased his mechanical arm, to his bloodshot eyes, he is well on his way to becoming the scourge of the galaxy, Darth Vader.

4 REY

Sideshow

Just an orphaned scavenger in The Force Awakens,  Rey had no idea that her hero's quest would take her halfway across the galaxy, rubbing elbows with famous heroes of the Resistance like Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Chewbacca. But it's her mission to find Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, now a recluse on Ahch-To, that define her character arc and bring her answers about her strange abilities.

Master Skywalker begrudgingly agrees to train the spunky young woman, and Hot Toys has depicted Rey as she appears in The Last Jedi undergoing that training. The layers of her fabric, her hairstyle, and her look of determination have all been recreated with exacting precision. She comes with a variety of accessories, including Ahch-To's most ubiquitous resident, the porgs!

3 DARTH MAUL

Sideshow

A formidable swordsman and Sith warrior, Darth Maul was Darth Sidious's apprentice when he was dispatched to take care of the two Jedi "Ambassadors" in charge of negotiating a peace treaty between the Trade Federation and the people of Naboo. He proved a formidable opponent for Qui-Gon Jinn and his padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jinn fell to Darth Maul's blade, and it was left to Obi-Wan to finish the conflict.

This dynamic figure by Hot Toys conveys the raw intensity and ferocity of the young Zabrak, the Dark Side of the Force flowing through his every movement. With an assortment of hand swaps and two different head sculpts, both Maul's inherent savagery and his brooding malice can be emphasized.

2 EMPEROR PALPATINE

Sideshow

The malevolent puppet master behind the galaxy's most catastrophic conflicts, the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War, Palpatine not only created the first Galactic Empire but also restored the Sith to power and destroyed the Jedi Order. As a young Senator from Naboo, he found ways to manipulate certain political events to his advantage, concealing his true identity as Sith Lord Darth Sidious.

The phantom menace not even the Jedi Order saw coming, he was responsible for corrupting the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker, and twisting him into the ultimate enforcer of his will, Darth Vader. Hot Toys has captured all of Palpatine's patronizing malice, from his powerful Force abilities to his twisted smile.

1 DARTH VADER

Sideshow

The Emperor's enforcer and the scourge that hunted down and exterminated the last of the Jedi Order, Darth Vader was feared for decades following the collapse of the Old Republic. The dark warrior most strongly associated with the Emperor's will, he enforced it dutifully and without question while strictly adhering to the ways of the Sith. Emperor Palpatine had corrupted him as a Jedi and made him a slave to hate, but some good still lurked beneath that sinister mask.

Hot Toys presents Vader as he is seen on his final redemptive arc in Return of the Jedi, a conflicted minion that is willing to defy his master to save the son he thought he'd lost. See the man behind the helmet when Luke removes his mask, a perfect blending of actor Hayden Christensen (young Anakin) and Sebastian Shaw (old Anakin).
