Looking good. How many releases are we looking at for TROS? Past Sith Trooper, Rey and Kylo, i'd expect a couple more for the initial batch and three to four more withing the next 6 to 9 months besides the possible trooper variants.

Easy pass. These characters were lame from the start and will finish out that way. Helps me save money to but Original trilogy items.
Agreed. Only have one PT figure and that is a standard FO Stormtrooper. Absolute no interest in anything else PT related.

Um, anyway...

I was waiting for this one but this might be the worst likeness of the Rey figures they've made yet. Also, I wonder if there's another version of the character in the movie, or one with more accessories, that I might prefer. I'll be patient and decide after the movie.

Ok :)

Just wish there was only THE trilogy rather than the poor attempts made of the PT and ST.
Agree with you there. Heck, the Jawas from Mandalorian Ep.2 have more depth than most TLJ characters...

POed from HK seller. A few pics from HT store (featured on Sideshow Freaks forums) make her look a lot better than product page pics.

Agreed. I'm passing on this hoping for a better one later. I really want the D-O, hoping they release him again, maybe with BB8.

I'm now even more disappointed in this release. There are two lightsaber hilts (and one additional different color blade) they could include after the fact but I'm going to guess they won't bother. Along with the subpar likeness and my general unenthusiastic response to the movie anyway, this is going to be a firm skip.

In think they will have to add two accessories to this piece: (1) Leia's light saber and (2) electricity. This figure won't be complete without those.

I haven't seen or heard any updates for this set, but I hope Hot Toys adds Leia's light saber as an accessory to this. I assume there will be a HT TROS Emperor at some point, and I want to display this Rey, crossing the two light sabers, deflecting the lightning bolts being shot at her by Palpatine.

Piece isn't shipping until 2nd qtr 2021, but it would be nice to know if the Leia saber will be added.

It would be great if they also added her lightsaber at the end.

Available in HK today. They did not improve proto likeness but added a few accessories... including that golden blade lightsaber.

Neither am i. Pretty much what's been advertised back in 2019 though. They clearly didn't get that Daisy Ridley likeness in none of their three attempts. TFA is still the best one.

TROS line with HT is very small; 5 figures and 2 are still available. This sequel line is dying fast. So many characters I would have like to seen.

Possibly. At least they put some budget toward her adding extra accessories since proto reveal.

Seeing how the helmet works, not even gonna try it. Chances it will damage HS paint app are too high.

Invoiced by KG Hobby today. She arrives a lot faster than other recent Star Wars releases as they just got Scout and Speeder from Mando as well. In comparison, first batch for Scout and Speeder was available a month ago while Rey (and Kylo) have been out for only a couple weeks.
