Celebration Japan Shadow Guard

I guess the Shadow Guard Kubrick will be released at one of the festivals in the near future. It is just a black version of the Royal Guard.

Hmmm... isn't there a "Shadow Guard" 3.75" figure coming in the Force Unleashed line?

Maybe Medicom is getting sucked into the "FU" media blitz too?

I thought that at first too, but it hinkt he whole shadow trooper concept is very popular in Japan so this may just be another way fro them to capitalize.

With all the S8, S9, Blue Stars and Maul Bike set hype, this one's kind of been lost in the shuffle...

I wonder what happened to the Kubrick Shadow Guard that was shown at the Parco'07 show?  It's been almost 11 months since the show happened and it never got solicited or sold at a convention anywhere.

Maybe its a Force Unleashed incentive in Japan for buying the video game like they sometimes do with movies there.

Any new 400% would be good, period.

The only picture I remember seeing was that one from Openers that had both the VCD and 100% Kubrick shown:

Hard to say when it's coming out, the VCD Shadow Guard is a SDCC exclusive & would think the Kuby would come out shortly. Maybe we will see something at the International Tokyo Toy Show June 19-22nd. Dunno.  :-\

Ah...  finally - Celebration Japan!



Looks like it's limited to 1500 pieces - 750 at the show and 750 through the website.  Here is the link to enter the lottery...  looks like ordering will start around 11am on July 20th (Japan time obviously).

Cool looking figure, but I have no problem making one of those myself if I can't get a hold of the official one :P

Hmm... will this usher in the possibility of TFU Kubricks?

I really hope that they don't go down that path until they get a few more rounds of OT Kubricks.  There are still some core figures that need to be made.
