The S.H. Figurarts line from Bandai is so vast and varied that sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all of their licenses. But what is easy is appreciating how beautiful all of them are. For the price you pay, which is in the $30-$60 range on average, you get a beautiful 6-inch art piece (more like 7.5 for Vader, because big daddy) with some of the most intricate articulation and sculpting of its kind.
Today, Bandai is showing off their newest Episode IV: A New Hope style Storm Trooper figure, and their Episode VI: Return of the Jedi style Darth Vader figures. Both have an October 2019 release date. The Storm Trooper has an MSRP of $50, and Darth Vader costs $53. Their respective links will take you in preorder pages.
The iconic Stormtrooper from “Star Wars: A New Hope” gets a long-awaited upgrade in Bandai’s newest S.H.Figuarts release! With improved articulation over earlier versions and 3 different types of blaster, this is the definitive version of the Imperial “bucket head”.
First released in 2015, Bandai’s S.H.Figuarts Darth Vader from “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” gets a renewal, with improvements made possible by the newest modelling technology! The helmet is removable to reveal his ravaged human face, with digital coloring adding an amazing depth; an interchangeable right arm with the hand missing is also included. The chest instrument panel is also more highly detailed than before.
