Before you all shout very loudly “THATS NOT ANIME FIONNA” let me just tell you, I don’t care. I have several Play Arts Kai figures that aren’t anime related right along side all of my cute anime girl figs on my shelf. So its only natural that I would want figures from my favorite franchise of all time Star Wars. Today Blu-fin and Bandi  Hobby are bringing some of the most iconic characters ever to appear on the big screen to your figure collection. These aren’t just your regular sculpted and painted figures though, The kits in the Star Wars Character Line require no glue and color injection molding reduces or even eliminates the need for paint. The full series will be out throughout 2018, and of course all of the figures are fully posable, and ready for action. Pre-orders are available now from authorized Bluefin retailers nationwide and also from a variety of leading online outlets. Check out the full gallery below with all 100+ images of this new set. I particularly like the level of detail in the R-2 D2 and C3PO model set, where you get fully articulated chest accesories in the R2 Unit and two diffrent sets of hands for C3PO

Manufactured in Japan, the Star Wars Plastic Model Character Line includes classic characters such as Darth Vader, the Storm Trooper, C-3PO and R2D2 as well as others like Kylo Ren and BB-8 from the latest Star Wars movies. Originally available only for the Asian market, these official U.S. releases will include English instructions and will also have product support from Bluefin. 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
