Medicom MAFEX Shoretrooper 1/12 release


Although not as prolific as SH Figuarts, Medicom are certainly stepping up their output of Star Wars 1/12 product in their MAFEX range.

So far in the MAFEX Series we've had figures from the Original Trilogy, the prequels and of course The Force Awakens. Medicom have now confirmed that as well as the Death Trooper from Rogue One - they will also be releasing the visually impressive Shoretrooper.


Following a similar vein to the Bandai kit, this MAFEX release will come with interchangeable parts allowing you to display the model as the regular trooper or the Kama wearing Squad Leader. He will come with the usual level of articulation and two weapons.

Release date is tentatively set for August 2017. That is quite an extensive wait what with other 1/12 Shoretroopers already on sale and with the Figuarts trooper ready to drop in January. The trooper has an RRP of 5800 Yen - that's around £40 or $50 converted, but expect to add more on for import costs.
