    Wow, this Padme is fantastic! I don’t own any S.H.Figuarts, but I may have to start.

    If only TBS 6 inch delved into the prequels more. I get that they are concentrating on the OT and new movies, but whether you like the prequels or not there are some cool characters for figures.

      Great that we’re getting Qui-Gon! Maybe that will lead to more characters being realized down the road?

        Plus i’d like them to re-release the first wave so i can have Maul. Either too expensive or a bootleg on Ebay now. Those bootlegs have got me paranoid about buying 6 inch figures online now, unless it’s a well known retailer.

          I hear ya. That’s why I haven’t pulled the trigger on TBS 6″ Darth Vader. At least that one’s getting rereleased or a new version is being released.

    I’ve been thinking about getting into these a little bit, anyone got a good recommendation on where to get these from?

      I’ve gotten most of mine off of Amazon and a few from Japanese sellers on eBay. I know there are sites from Japan that sell them (or you can preorder upcoming figures) for various prices but I’ve yet to use any of them. Wherever you do get them from just be careful because there are a lot of fakes out there. Nevertheless they are well worth the price and sometimes slight hassle to get them.

    I still enjoy and collect the 6″ Black Series line, but after getting my first of now many S.H. Figuarts a few months back I just can’t look at Hasbro’s offerings the same way. Yes, the Figuarts are usually more than twice the price of a Black Series, but you get far more than twice the quality. Clearly one company takes a lot of pride in their work and tries to give the collector a definitive version of the character, while one company cares only about how much money they can make.

    I’ll be getting all of these. I still like the toy focused aspect (and the toy look) of Hasbro action figures but all of the S.H.Figuarts are just as appealing with all of the extra articulation, details and realism. Realistic yet still a toy.

    It looks like Obi-Wan will have interchangeable hoods: one hood piece pulled back from the head and maybe one hood piece pulled over the head.

    This makes me wonder if FN-2187 will come with a helmet-head or a helmet that fits over and onto Finns head.

    I love it how the 3.75 collection has been completely highjacked to try and compete with the quality of these overseas companies! Bandi has has been doing this kind of stuff forever why try to reinvent the wheel?

    Were we unhappy with the quality of the vintage collection? Heck no but somewhere it was abandoned… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9a4be154f5e1fdd53b95048bbc97e49f525c846e3eccad58a2048dbcf41c7fcb.gif
