Bluefin Will Release Bandai Hobby’s Character Line of Star Wars Model Kits

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 news of these highly anticipated new products follows Bluefin’s previous North American release of the Star Wars Scale Vehicle Model kit line that encompassed notable crafts and space ships from the earlier classic Star Wars films as well as from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Bandai Hobby is renowned for its high-quality model kits that blend complex detail and innovative construction that fans of all skill levels can enjoy. The kits in the Star Wars Character Line require no glue and color injection molding reduces or even eliminates the need for paint.

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.

Manufactured in Japan, the Star Wars Plastic Model Character Line includes classic characters such as Darth Vader, the Storm Trooper, C-3PO and R2D2 as well as others like Kylo Ren and BB-8 from the latest Star Wars movies. Originally available only for the Asian market, these official U.S. releases will include English instructions and will also have product support from Bluefin.

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
  • Stormtrooper
  • C-3PO
  • R2-D2 & R4-D5
  • K-2SO

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Betrothed #1 (AfterShock Comics) – Sean Lewis and Steve Uy’s new series and those creators alone have us excited. The concept is out there involving two individuals who each lead an army at war with each other but when they turn eighteen they either need to get married or fight to the death.

Come Into Me #1 (Black Mask Studio) – A new horror series about body image, social media, and memory. Sounds interesting to us!

Eternity Girl #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The teasers in “Milk Wars” got us amped up and we were already excited about this new series from Magdalene Visaggio and Sonny Liew.

Ghost Money #8 (Lion Forge Comics) – You probably have been missing this series about all of the money terrorists made from 9/11. Really interesting stuff that reads like the best thrillers.

Ghostbusters: Crossing Over #1 (IDW Publishing) – When the containment unit empties, who you gonna call? Every Ghostbuster in every dimension. Sounds like fun!

Infidel #1 (Image Comics) – Fantastic psychological horror with a religious twist.

Mister Miracle #7 (DC Comics) – A fantastic issue that picks up after the shocking end of the last one. Great humor to it as Mister Miracle and Barda have their kid!

New Mutants: Dead Souls #1 (Marvel) – New Mutants… we’re in.

Puerto Rico Strong (Lion Forge Comics) – A charity anthology to raise money for the people of Puerto Rico. A mix of education and entertainment and a must get.

Star Wars: Thrawn #2 (Marvel) – The rise of Thrawn!!! Adapting the books, it’s a must for Star Wars fans.
