Tamashii Nations has also reveal new images for their S.H.Figuarts Luke Skywalker (A New Hope) figure. This looks to be the go-to 6″ scale figure for Luke in this outfit as the details, sculpt, deco and accessories are amazing.
Our heads are on a bobble as new POP! bobble heads from Funko are making their way to retail and quickly into collector’s hands. On this week’s show, we discuss our latest obsession with this POP! line as well as cover the latest announcements from Hasbro as well as new product hitting stores. Also, we glaze longingly upon new product images that have been revealed from Hot Toys including their stunning sixth scale Rey figure. And, as always, we wrap things up with our latest reviews and acquisitions. All this and more on Episode 87 of The Realm Recap.
PROS: If you are looking for an ornately sculpted and painted piece in the 1:12/6″ scale line, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than Bandai’s Mei Sho Movie Realization figures. The intricacy of the sculpts and precision in the articulation result in a truly museum-quality collectible that you can actually handle repeatedly without fear of breaking the figure (or wallet) as you might with Sideshow and/or Hot Toys products. The Ronin Boba Fett is a unique and “real world” interpretation of the iconic bounty hunter with a feudal Japanese/Samurai aesthetic. It is loaded not only with attitude, but accessories as well like throwing knives, a sword, and a re-imagined EE-3 rifle and jet pack. In total, this figure is a must-own for fans of the style, scale and Boba Fett alike.
CONS: These figures aren’t for your everyday collector due to the price and niche style. The various hands for the figure can be difficult to switch out, let alone be “massaged” enough to hold the weapons. As Obi-Wan said, “patience” is the key here – don’t try to force anything.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
