SH Figuarts 1/12 C-3PO and R2-D2 to hit stores July 2017



C-3PO and R2-D2 have been showing up at SH Figuarts Trade displays for a while now, but we now have confirmation of their release and these superb promotional images.

The figures will hit stores in Japan in July 2017, with the US likely following suit via Bluefin Distributors soon after. In Japan it seems these will be sold as individual figures. C-3PO retailing for 6000 Yen (£42) while R2 is a little cheaper at 4200 Yen (£30).

C-3PO looks to be coming with options to have a dented and un-dented head. He also looks to come with the communicator he used on the Death Star in A New Hope.


R2 is packed with various attachments that can be opened and attached both on the dome and the front panels. There also appears to be options for different colour lights in his dome lenses.
