Medicom 6" MAFEX Star Wars figures
« on: May 25, 2014, 11:24 PM »
Don't think we have a thread started for these yet (and really, Vader is the only once announced/planned so far).  Here's a bunch of pics anyway (clicky thumbnails for a better look):

         

Retail in Japan will be 4500 Yen and he's due in December 2014.  It'll be pricey to bring one into the USA, but probably worth it if you're a Vader collector.

Anyone know how these match up with TBS 6" figures?  Price is way too steep for me.

I thought this was only going to be $45?

I don't know, doesn't look much better to me than the Hasbro version. Not sure if my comic shop would even stock these or not either.

MSRP is 4500 Yen (~$44.15 US) in Japan, but most Japanese etailers are charging less ($35-40).

If you order from a solid Japanese etailer like Hobby Link Japan, you can get one for $37.50 US plus shipping from Japan.

BBTS is probably buying them wholesale from Japan for $40-45 shipped to them and then flipping them to US customers with a $10-15 mark up ($55).

Thanks for the HLJ link Jeff, I'm putting in an order.
