And is there a thread for the Kaiyodo Revoltech SW figures?

The Revoltech figures are a bit of an acquired taste, if you can tolerate the weird joints. I recommend the 3PO and R2, never opened Fett, Vader is complicated to pose and the Stormtrooper is wicked tall

Thanks, I am doing some hard thinking about my collection lately.

Same. I'm wrestling with selling my Hasbro 6 inch stuff and exclusively collecting the Japanese stuff. More expensive, but there are a limited number of figures per year.

WOW!  Most of those look really impressive.  The AOTC Clone Troopers look amazing.  The only one that I think looked a bit off was Jabba, and that's just because of the nature of those joints they put in his tail.

Got the Rey/EPG/BB set in the mail today! This catches me up with the Figuarts offerings to this point.

The 3 EPGs Bandai has released are the same ones Hasbro has released too. The one that came with Rey is the same as the wide release, and the one that comes with Kylo is the Amazon exclusive.

Placed my Old Ben preorder this morning. Should still be up at most of the usual places (AmiAmi, HLJ, etc).

Only figures from Solo that Bandai appears to be making are Chewie (same as the Target exclusive; essentially a rehash with goggles and a shotgun) and the Mimban Stormtrooper. They're rereleasing the ANH Han, which came out last year and is not hard to find, which has me thinking they won't be doing anything else from the movie.

ROTS Anakin went up for presale overnight... and sold out fast! I had to get one through a site called CDJapan that took the payment at the time of order, so that stunk.

Also got a payment request for the ANH Vader. Here's a comparison pic of the old Vader (left) and the new Vader (right):

Over the last week and a half I've gotten the following in the mail:

- Darth Maul's Speeder
- TLJ Luke
- ANH Ben Kenobi
- Solo Chewie
- Solo Mimban Stormtrooper

Haven't opened any yet but my Obi-Wan arrived in a damaged box, which was weird because the rest of the shipment was fine as was the mailing box, meaning I think they arrived to HLJ in Japan already damaged. Figure appears to be fine, though a guy on Discord who ordered his from AmiAmi had to send his back because his figure's face had a big chip in it.
