I am not exactly sure what MOKO is, but Hot Toys has setup a temporary storefront there with all sorts of goodies on display. New Rogue One figures are being featured for the first time. Of particular interest are the awesome dioramas on display, created with Hot Toys Star Wars figures!
Check out the information as well as images of the items below!
As we’ve come within a month from the highly anticipated release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we are eager to celebrate with all fans at the Star Wars-themed Hot Toys Pop-up Store at MOKO in Hong Kong.
The Pop-up Store will serve as the “Rebel base” for all Star Wars fans in town from tomorrow (November 19th) until January 1st, 2017. Visitors will be able to check out an incredible array of the latest offerings from Hot Toys, and today we organized a special preview session exclusively for Hot Toys VIPs, who were obviously excited to enjoy the privilege!
The centerpiece of the exhibition is a collection of life-size statues based on characters from the film, most notably those of Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus, two Rebel heroes played by international action superstar Donnie Yen and acclaimed actor Jiang Wen, respectively. These highly accurate statues, now exhibited publicly for the first time, were created with such intense passion and expertise typical of Hot Toys that even Donnie was quick to show his approval upon meeting his Hot Toys “double” at an earlier press event.
Other eye-catching exhibits include two spectacular dioramas recreating pulse-pounding scenes from the Star Wars movies with 1/6th scale collectible figures made by Hot Toys. One depicts the fierce battle from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story between the Rebels and the Empire on planet Jedha, featuring an AT-ST walker and some never-before-seen figures in 1/6th scale. The other shows an impressive military parade with Darth Vader and some 80+ Stormtroopers!
Fans and collectors would be delighted to find a limited edition Stormtrooper on pre-order, which is inspired by the unique blue-and-white porcelain art originated in ancient China, as well as 6 exclusive Cosbaby Bobble-head Collectibles for purchase. The Pop-up Store also carries a wide variety of other Star Wars merchandises from Hot Toys, including a selection of 1/6th scale collectible figures, Cosbaby and assorted lifestyle premiums that every Star Wars fan would love to bring home.

Star Wars Episode IX Official Release Date Revealed!
If you were wondering when Star Wars Episode IX was going to be released, then look no further! The Star Wars Episode IX Official release date is May 24, 2019! The news comes from an official release from StarWars.com.
The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm announced today two major upcoming release dates.
Star Wars: Episode IX is now set for release on May 24, 2019. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film will close out the third Star Wars trilogy.
In addition, the fifth chapter of the Indiana Jones series is now confirmed for a July 10, 2020 release. Both Steven Spielberg, director of every Indiana Jones film, and star Harrison Ford will return.
It looks like Lucasfilm is sticking with the May release dates going forward. This is unfortunate as many people actually enjoyed the December time frame for Star Wars. It allowed people to get more views in during the holiday break.
What are your thoughts concerning this news? Are you happy with the continued May timeframe, or would you rather have the Christmas release? Leave your thoughts in the appropriate places…
