Tamashii Nations has finally put up some official photos of their newly announced Star Wars S.H. Figuarts action figures. They have revealed both the S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures, which should be arriving as early as next year.
There really isn’t many details on the official S.H. Figuarts launch page, though it does say that each of the figures will come with interchangeable parts/accessories. They also announced that in 2015 there will be a Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker, allowing you to recreate the battle scenes from the movie using both Darth Vader and Luke.
The release date still hasn’t been set in stone, as the launch page just says “slated for 2015”, with a price of “TBA”. With all of the new Star Wars offerings being announced by just about every Japanese toy manufacturer, how are we going to decide which figures we should add to our collections? Personally, I’m just being a completest for Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series line. What are you doing? Mix and match?
Bluefin, the official North American distributor for Tamashii Nations products, has already said that they will not be importing these figures into the US. If you want them, you are going to either have to do the importing yourself, of you can hope and pray that Big Bad Toy Store is going to be importing them.
