We’ve been teased enough. Tamashii Nations will usher in the S.H. Figuarts Star Wars era starting January 6 when pre-orders for the S.H. Figuarts Stormtrooper and S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader figures opens in Japan. Both figures are scheduled to ship simultaneously in April 2015.
The S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader and Stomtropper figures are developed in twelfth-scale proportions with Vader standing in at 15.5 centimeters (6.1 inches) and the Stromtrooper coming in at 14.5 centimeters (5.7 inches) tall. The S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader is based on the character’s Return of the Jedi appearance and the figure includes an articulated cape and soft, plastic skirt for poseability. Several switch-out hand are included, as is a battle damaged hand for recreating the Jedi dual with Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi. Vader also includes a lighsaber and is priced at ¥5,940 or about $50.
Tamashii’s S.H. Figuarts Stormtrooper is hyper-articulated and includes switch-out hands for dynamic poses with the included blaster rifle. The figure is priced at ¥4,320 or about $35 and will accompany Darth Vader as the figure movie-based S.H. Figuarts Star Wars figures in April 2015.
