Star Wars, The Last Jedi - new figure kits from Bandai

Bandai have confirmed two new Action Figure Kit sets for Star Wars, The Last Jedi.

First is a new Captain Phasma. She most likely be a revision of The Force Awakens version She comes with her new staff/spear weapon.

The other release confirmed is this R2-D2 and C-3PO kit. This is the first time the iconic pairing have been boxed together with C-3PO having been a single release and R2 being packed first with R5-D4 and then with BB8.

Both kits will retail in Japan for the equivalent of £15 / $20. Due to licencing agreements they are not officially allowed to be sold outside of the Japanese market. That will leave collectors relying on imported goods - and that means a bigger price ticket. For me, the best avenue for these models in the UK appears to be 3rd party sellers on Amazon.
