Sideshow Puts a Premium on The Mandalorian’s Moff Gideon

Giancarlo Esposito is one of those actors who’s just great in everything. And now, thanks to Sideshow Collectibles, he’s great in quarter-scale premium figure format as well. As Moff Gideon, he was sufficiently badass to kill Werner Herzog, survive a TIE Fighter crash, and wield the Darksaber. And at least two of those things are depicted in this upcoming collectible.

Sideshow’s only offering one preview image thus far. But unless their lighting is deceptive, it looks like Gideon’s chest armor lights up, and possibly the Darksaber itself as well. The cape appears made of dynamically posed cloth, and the figure stands atop his wrecked Imperial attack ship.

While Moff Gideon has yet to show his face in season 2 of The Mandalorian, his presence will clearly be felt. With previous Darksaber wielder Bo-Katan Kryze confirmed as appearing, we’re likely to learn a lot more about the weapon of the original Mandalorian Jedi. And how it went so, so wrongly into enemy hands.

Sideshow should put the premium format figure up for preorders shortly. Anyone who wants to get that notification first can sign up for it at their site.
