Leading collectibles distributor Bluefin brings the force to Star Wars fans and retailers as it announces the Star Wars Character Line of model kits from Bandai Hobby.
The kits in the Star Wars Character Line require no glue and color injection molding reduces or even eliminates the need for paint.
The Bandai Hobby Star Wars Character Line features kits in 1/12, 1/6, and 1/2 scales. Initial characters to be released will be in the 1/12 scale and will have an MSRP range of $28.00 – $50.00.
Initial Bandai Hobby Star Wars Plastic Model Character Releases for North America will include:
- Darth Vader
- Boba Fett
- R2-D2 & R4-D5
- Han Solo Stormtrooper
- Luke Skywalker Stormtrooper
- Clone Trooper
- General Grievous
- Kylo Ren
- First Order Stormtrooper
Additional character releases will be announced throughout 2018.
Some kits, such as the Han Solo and Luke Skywalker releases, feature new technology that allows a digitally printed likeness to be rendered onto the facial components in the kit. Once completed, each Character Line model is fully articulated and capable of replicating numerous iconic poses.
Pre-orders are available now from authorized Bluefin retailers nationwide and also from a variety of leading online outlets. The first of these kits are set for retail release in May.
