Title: Bandai Star Wars figure model kits
Post by: Valfar on April 16, 2015, 12:09:02 AM
Not much of a written review, just showing off how beautiful these kits turned out(especially Vader), the sculpts blow away even some higher end collectibles and these are easily the winner in both scale,sculpt and over all value compared to anything we've got in the Black Series line so far in my opinion.

I assembled and painted Vader and the Droids, Stormtrooper needs no paint, just decals were applied.

Droid attachments are not displayed in the pics below as I have yet to paint them all.

They look great, but I'm not able to figure out the scale at all - how big? And I'll have to research the price - I'm guessing they're only available online or via certain Asian import stores... likely not cheap. Good looking collection anyhow!

Basically 6" scale. There is a good comparison photo to the Hasbro figure here http://thefwoosh.com/2014/11/bandai-star-wars-darth-vader-112-scale-model-kit-review (http://thefwoosh.com/2014/11/bandai-star-wars-darth-vader-112-scale-model-kit-review)

I'm loving this model, I just finished building Vader yesterday and the sculp is really awesome! I had this since Feb but i was scared to start because I never built a model before. My first actual model built, not as hard as I thought it was. And now I am hooked on this Bandai model! My 3PO and R2 just shipped out, can't wait to get them...
