Bandai Launching New Line of Star Wars Model Figure Kits

Published

on

Bluefin is bringing the force to Star Wars fans and retailers as it announces the Star Wars Character Line of model kits from Bandai Hobby.

The kits in the Star Wars Character Line require no glue and color injection molding reduces or even eliminates the need for paint. The Bandai Hobby Star Wars Character Line features kits in 1/12, 1/6, and 1/2 scales. Initial characters to be released will be in the 1/12 scale and will have an MSRP range of $28.00 – $50.00.

Some of the kits, like the Han Solo and Luke Skywalker kits, feature a new technology that allows a digitally printed likeness to be rendered onto the facial components of the kit. Once completed, each Character Line model is fully articulated and capable of replicating numerous iconic poses.

Could this potentially be the Star Wars figure line that collector’s will flock to? Only time will tell, but from the looks of the kits below, these are looking fantastic!

The initial Bandai Hobby Star Wars Plastic Model Character Releases for North America will include:

  • Darth Vader
  • Boba Fett
  • Stormtrooper
  • C-3PO
  • R2-D2 & R4-D5
  • K-2SO
  • Han Solo Stormtrooper
  • Luke Skywalker Stormtrooper
  • Shoretrooper
  • Clone Trooper
  • General Grievous
  • Kylo Ren
  • BB-8
  • First Order Stormtrooper

Additional character releases will be announced throughout 2018.

There are quite a few images below, so sit back, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the photos of what’s to come!
