MAFEX Stromtrooper Figure joins Medicom’s 6-inch Star Wars Line
Ever since Hasbro started making 6-inch Star Wars action figures, other companies have been eager to get on board. Following right behind Medicom’s announcement of the MAFEX Darth Vader figure comes the announcement of the 6-inch MAFEX Stormtrooper!
Medicom’s MAFEX line hasn’t been alive too long, though we have seen some very solid releases that are pretty sought after by collectors. If you don’t believe me, just check out how much their first MAFEX Spider-Man figure is going for on eBay.
With Hasbro already making 6-inch Star Wars figures, it was very surprising to see Medicom jump on board with their super-articulated import line. Their releases seem to be spaced out much more compared to how many figures Hasbro has been pumping out, though it looks like they are going to be giving collectors some of the most demanded figures from the Star Wars Universe.
The new MAFEX Stormtrooper action figure stands about 6-inches tall and will include a blaster and figure stand. The blaster can either be holstered on the figure on held in his hands.
Being priced at $54.99, I don’t know how many collectors are going to be interested in army building these figures with Hasbro’s Stromtrooper coming in at almost 1/3rd the price. Pre-orders are currently available here and he’s expected to start shipping in May 2015.
