Bandai Movie Realization Samurai Star Wars
« on: November 24, 2014, 11:08 AM »
Starting a thread for these...  CollectionDX has a new look at the Stormtrooper figure.

I think the flint-lock E11 is my favorite part...  he'll look great with the previously announced Darth Vader figure.

That is indeed awesome looking.  What scale are those?  Also around 1/12?

Info says Vader is 18cm (7inch), so a little big for Hasbro 6" scale but not too out of line for a bigger guy like Vader.

Seems virtually impossible that Star Wars combined with Samurai couldn't be awesome.

So a lil closer to 1/10 maybe?

Japan has the best stuff.

Just picked up the Samurai Vader tonight - too awesome to pass up and it will make for a very cool focus/niché display. Definitely getting a couple stormtroopers too.

Looks like Tamashii got the ok to release these domestically via their US distribution arm, Bluefin.

Might make them a little bit cheaper or at least give folks a second chance at picking up Samurai Vader and Stormtrooper if you haven't imported them yet.

These look amazing.  But with an MSRP of $81.99 for the Stormtrooper and even more for Vader?  I just don't know. but looking at that backdrop behind the figures at Toy Fair it looks to me like a Royal Guard is on tap for this line, too.
