Bandai’s Warhammer line is about to start!
You may recall a few months ago I wrote an article on the announcement that Bandai will be producing a line of Warhammer figures and now we have full color shots of the Bandai Warhammer 40,000 Primaris Intercessor.
I don’t know all that much about the Warhammer universe or the lore but I’m somewhat familiar with the designs and I have to say I have always really liked the designs.
Now Bandai have released a press release on the figure this is what they had to say on it:
The first-ever Warhammer action figure is here, and it’s incredible! The model stands 8” tall, with the solid construction and brilliant sculpt radiating a sense of weight, power, and presence. This milestone model from Bandai represents a new way for Warhammer fans to explore and enjoy the rich universe of the 41st Millennium.
This action figure is a collectable-grade posable model with over 50 points of articulation. The build quality and paint finish are everything you’d expect from our partners at Bandai. They’ve captured features like the Imperialis on his breastplate and distinctive Mk X faceplate in crisp detail while remaining faithful to everything that makes a Space Marine instantly recognisable. Massive pauldrons, looming backpack vents, flared greaves and, of course, the bolt rifle – this iconic silhouette works just as well at this scale as any other.
The paint finish is intricate and vibrant, resplendent in the blue heraldry of the Ultramarines. The squad markings show this figure to be a warrior from the 3rd Battleline Squad of the 2nd Company. At each step, everything about this model was crafted with attention to detail and reverence for the source material. But, of course, it’s also really fun to play with!
This Primaris Intercessor will make a stunning centerpiece collectible for every fan of Warhammer 40,000, or even just those of you who are into awesome action figures – and it’ll be available to pre-order next month. Keep an eye out for more info on securing one for yourself or as a gift.
As Bandai is such a large big brand company I reckon that these figures will go for around $25-$30 as companies such as NECA and DST charge about the same for this scale of the figure. I’ll definitely be looking to getting this figure once it’s released.
