It’s been over a month since we’ve heard from Hot Toys, but the silence has been broken with the announcement of Qui-Gon Jinn MMS525 from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
We’ve seen little bits and pieces that has given us an idea this was coming, but it was still a very exciting surprise and a welcome announcement. Let’s cross our collective fingers in hopes that we see a young Obi Wan in the near future as well.
Qui-Gon is already available for pre-order on Sideshow for $235.00 and will release between January and March 2020.

A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think — use your instincts." On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery. The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger. They refused to allow Qui-Gon to train Anakin, but rescinded their decision to fulfill Qui-Gon's dying wish. Today, Hot Toys is very excited to introduce the new 1/6th scale collectible figure of Qui-Gon Jinn from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace! Skillfully crafted based on the appearance of Qui-Gon Jinn in the film, this 1/6th scale collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt, finely tailored Jedi robe and tunic, a desert poncho, a LED light-up lightsaber, a Comlink, a grappling hook, a hologram projector with interchangeable holograms, and a themed figure base! Battle the dark side with Jedi Master Qui-Gon in your Star Wars collection! #HotToys #Collectibles #SixthScale #Lucasfilm #StarWars #ThePhantomMenace #QuiGonJinn #LiamNeeson
