Previewed on their Facebook page.

Fearsome desert savages inhabiting the rocky deserts, Tusken Raiders™ are the foremost reason Tatooine™ colonists do not wander far from their isolated communities. Inspired by the captivating stories of a galaxy far, far away…. Hot Toys will soon unveil a brand new 1/6th scale collectible figure inspired by the acclaimed Star Wars™ series #TheMandalorian™.

I agree about the clean robes, but what do you expect for around $250?

If you want it weathered and dirty, do it yourself is probably what HT will say 😂🤣

Seriously though, they do need to be weathered. Sideshow Mythos Obi Wan had great weathered robe's. These need to be on par with that.

Maybe in a future episode of Mando the Tusken's trade a Bantha for a washing machine and one of Kylo's ironing droids with the Jawa's ;)

Here are a few shots. It wouldn't be reasonable but Hot Toys clearly hint at multiple variants possible. A trio on the shlf would definitely be impressive.

Looks great! I agree that 3 would look great as a display but no way I can afford 3 of these guys.

I have a feeling that a bantha will be coming at some point. Maybe this is just wishful thinking?

Might just be my eye, but he looks too “clean”. Love the accessories and extra hands, but I’m preferring the SSC version. Happy for those who want to add it to their growing Mando 1/6 scale collection. This is the way.

Given their release history, that seems unlikely. At best one might be shown at a convention only to be never produced.

Sideshow could've done it like their Taun Taun and Dewback, but the time for such things has passed at this point, unfortunately.

This should be a two pack minimum. Or at least include a Massif.

I would be all for a two pack with a campfire diorama or something like that, but at least Hot Toys included additional accessories in this release to add diversity for anyone buying multiple.

Hot Toys is very risk averse with the Star Wars license so making a Tusken twosome might be a bit too much of a risk for them, despite featuring in The Mandalorian.

Not as many people would be willing to plunk down what would pretty much now be a $500 set for two Tusken Raiders and some additional accessories.

Just purchased this on payment plan with a $25 discount code, and then received another email with another code for $25 off any purchase over $100!
Hot Toys is killing it with the codes this week...

They've delayed releases for so long. It was inevitable. Here are a few pics from official reviewers.

I had a feeling this might be released sooner than later... initial pics look pretty nice, don't remember the robes being so clean looking before.

Plenty of extra weapons and accessories!!!

Those Tuskens are very clean indeed. Yet, i won't blame Hot Toys on this as it seems they were equally clean in The Mandalorian.

Sideshow are really trying to get a jump on the Youtube channels that review figures.
Couldn't shut them down or stop them from taking orders so next best thing is to get the review videos up and stock in asap.

I'm wondering if they are getting their Tusken Raiders stock as well. If so, it might be one of the reasons why Hot Toys releases were almost non existant for the last few months.
Sideshow may have gotten a deal with Hot Toys to postpone releases in HK a few months while their stock was sent over tho the US to kill HK resellers competition :unsure:
