More details on the Bandai 6 inch Star Wars figures

I was intrigued by the image we shared earlier of the new 6 inch Star Wars figures released by Bandai in Japan.

I am fairly certain these are what Bandai are calling the Movie Vinyl Collection, and these are already listed for order on Amazon Japan and also as pre-order on Big Bad Toy Store under imports. The Japanese RRP is 1400Yen, so about £9.50, and BBTS have them at $14.99.

The June releases see's four figures, all numbered like the Hasbro Black Series

#01 Kylo Ren

#02 First Order Storm Trooper

#03 Captain Phasma

#04 BB8

There are also at least two more figures coming in July 2016 - #05 will be R2-D2 and #06 will be Chewbacca. No images exist for these yet.

The biggest plus for this range is the packaging, which has a very nostalgic feel to it. It would however be unlikely to see these for sale directly in the US or UK due to the Hasbro licence already in place. If these tickle your fancy then importing via someone like BBTS or ordering direct from Japan will be your best bet.
