Yeah even though I'm not a big 1/4 guy (only have Vader and the Mark 3, which are just too heavy and awkward to pose and have any real fun with), but I would have been very tempted by a 1/4 Mando that actually looked like that photo on the right.

That current version though just looks so... bleh.

Wasn't impressed with the prototype at all. Helmet looked weird and tiny while the proportions looked chunky and thick. The silver on the armor looked dull and not as good as the 1/6 version as well.

Curious to see if they bothered changing anything on the production version. As of now, not much interest in this and honestly disappointing considering the standard they usually put with their QS figures. Hope the production version is better.

Man that proto is underwhelming.

That picture in particular always gave me Super Mario Bros. movie Goomba vibes.

I genuinely hope for the sake of everyone that’s been looking forward to this that the production version won’t be a letdown.

I wish I was excited for this but like many of you, the promo pics just did nothing for me and I’ve been buying all HT Mando figs. This could change if blogger pics look much better but if not….I’ll hold out for a rearmored Boba 1/4 as that would be INSANE

Are they doing a new 1/4 Boba? I missed out on the RotJ version 🤞

Agreed, I feel the prototype should have been better executed. The helmet does indeed look smaller in proportion, but hopefully we'll see soon if they rectified that and/or made improvements to the figure all around.

I have a fair few of the QS releases, and agree, in terms of playability, 1/6 is more fun since they're more nimble in comparison. Though for me I thoroughly enjoyed handling the 1/4 figures. When stood on my shelf they looked like, glorious, high-end statues - yet they're huge, articulated figures, and I thought that was enthralling.

So, no unboxing or blogger photos of this one yet? I'm anxious to see if they improved on the prototype...

This is taking longer than usual. I wonder why. Surely they must upload blogger pictures with the production piece this week…

I have one more payment to go on this and put my hope towards Hot Toys improving the overall proportions in the final production piece, as did also feel something was off.

It has nothing to do or has any indication of the quality lol It means they haven't even released it at Secret Base for those who preordered in Hong Kong directly from Hot Toys. It may have arrived but they just haven't released it yet. Has happened before.

I pre-ordered this in HK and don't have pick-up notification yet. Going on my limited previous experiences of the the batch box photos release it'll probably be in the next 3-4 days.
