May the 4th is already underway. Even though most of the world still lives on May the 3rd as of the posting of this article, Star Wars is officially kicking off its festivities for its day of the year. D23 has announced a new Ahsoka Tano figure from Sideshow, in premium format, will be available to pre-order tomorrow, on May the 4th, at 6 am PDT.
The figure is based on Ahsoka’s appearance in Star Wars: Rebels, and is fully sculpted in Premium Format — it is 19.5 inches tall and comes on a Malachor-inspired display base. She is also wielding her two white lightsabers, in a pose meant to recreate the famous battle from Twilight of the Apprentice, the final episode from the second season of Rebels. From D23:
“The polystone Ahsoka Tano Premium Format Figure is fully sculpted to capture the energy and action of her animated presence in a three-dimensional statue format. Ahsoka’s vibrant orange portrait bears her distinct white facial markings, and her face is framed by her white and blue patterned montrals and lekku. Her costume features a blue-grey bodysuit and sculpted skirts, belts guards, and detailed tan tassets at her hips. In her hands, her unique, white-bladed sabers are unsheathed in anticipation of a fateful duel.”
Here is the figure, available tomorrow to pre-order:
Whether or not Sideshow has more announcements in store for us, we’ll find out as the day progresses.

Between The Bad Batch (which drops tomorrow, make sure to check out our initial, non-spoiler thoughts here) and perhaps some announcements coming our way tomorrow, we have a busy week ahead.
