New SH Figuarts Star Wars reveals at Tokyo Comic Con


Tokyo Comic Con and SH Figuarts had a wealth of Star Wars product on display, including some brand new figures we've not seen before.


The range continues it's love for the Prequel Trilogy with new figures of Queen Amidala from The Phantom Menace, Count Dooku, Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi. It also looks like we will be getting more Battle Droids. The sad news was there was no sign of the previously displayed Grievous and the Super Battle Droid - these may have dropped off the release plan at present.


The R2 sculpt is going to be re-used for some new Astromech droids and for fans of The Phantom Menace, SH Figuarts will be giving us the full set of Astromech droids as stationed on the Naboo Royal Starship along with R2-D2. These droids are R2-C4, R2-M5 and R2-B1.


Staying with The Phantom Menace is R2-A6 (Ric Ollie's droid from The Phantom Menace).

And we then move to Attack of the Clones for R4-P17 who is of course the Astromech assigned to Obi-Wan Kenobi and will make a great companion piece to the prequel Obi-Wan. The final figure is C2-B5 from Rogue One - a lot was made of this droid in the build up to the movie, with a figure in the Disney Elite series, but he seems to have been cut from most of the movie.


For Clone fans, new flavours of Phase 1 Clones will be released including the Commander (Yellow), Sergeant (Green) and Lieutenant (Blue). These were displayed alongside the previously released Captain (Red) and an Attack of the Clones C-3PO.



Moving on to the Original Trilogy and the Jabba figure got another run out. We got excited over this a year or so ago with a grainy image. This one is a lot clearer and there are questions for me over the segmentation of the tail to add articulation?


There was a better look at the recently teased A New Hope Obi-Wan and a surprise reveal of A New Hope Princess Leia.


And finally the Sequels, and we get an Episode 7 Han Solo and a Finn in Stormtrooper disguise.


The one thing to bear in mind with all these reveals is that a figure being on display does not necessarily mean a release any time soon. As we mentioned earlier, last year or so we have seen figures of Grievous and a Super Battle Droid that have since dropped off the radar - and any of the figures here may or may not share that fate.
