The Tamashii Nations Movie Realization line has been quiet for a few months, but today it has announced a brand new figure in the shape of The Mandalorian.
The Movie Realization concept is to take Star Wars movie characters, and to reimagine them into a Feudal Japan setting with characters taking on the aesthetics of the Samurai Warriors of the era. The Mandalorian, like Boba Fett before him, will be converted to a Ronin Samurai concept with the darker brown armour from the first few episodes of Season 1. I'd therefore put money on a Beskar version in due course.
He is armed with his disintegrator rifle, blaster and a Samurai Sword. The cape will be soft goods. Pre-orders are now open and the figure will ship in March 2021.
The Mandalorian arrives in the Meisho Movie Realization series in the first armor seen in the Star Wars™ series The Mandalorian™. Styled by Takayuki Takeya and inspired by the motif of a ronin (masterless samurai), this figure includes the first ever cloth cape in the Meisho series. He also includes his characteristic rifle and blaster accessories, as well as a katana sword. With weathering and brushing applied to his armor plating this figure brings a new level of detail to the line.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
