The figure, which is “re-imagined with a unique monochromatic silver finish, and features hinged panels, and an articulated light-up dome”, will first be available at Toy Soul in Hong Kong this month, followed by several other Asian conventions and locations, as well as the Star Wars Celebration in London.

For the US, the figure will be available at the Sideshow booth at both San Diego Comic-Con in July, and WonderCon in LA in March.
