Want to see the ultimate Star Wars stop motion animation fan film? Take a look at Chirrut Imwe fighting Stormtroopers made using Hot Toys’ figures.

Celebrating the opening of the highly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story around the world, Hot Toys is thrilled to present a stop-motion animated short featuring Chirrut Îmwe, the new Rebel hero played by international martial arts superstar Donnie Yen, in an exhilarating fight scene inspired by the movie trailer and made entirely with 1/6th scale collectible figures by Hot Toys!

The astonishing animation and explosive action choreography is made possible by the remarkable articulation featured in the 1/6th scale Chirrut Îmwe collectible figure, and the impeccable likeness to Donnie Yen surely makes the short look exceptionally realistic!

Although it runs less than two minutes, the short took over a month to create and incorporated more than 2,600 still pictures in addition to some slick CG enhancements. We hope you all enjoy watching it and appreciate our tribute to the new Star Wars experience! May the Force be with you!

This is a great commercial for the Hot Toys 1/6th scale Chirrut Inwe figure that is available for pre-order now for $244.99. (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/events/star-wars-rogue-one/)
