WF2015 Star Wars MAFEX 001

At Summber Wonder Festival 2015, Medicom revealed a few new items. They are adding some new Star Wars and Marvel figures to their Miracle Action Figure EX (MAFEX) line. At the show, they had the following figures on display:

  • Star Wars – C-3PO
  • Star Wars – R2-D2
  • Star Wars – Stormtrooper (previously released)
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron – Iron Man Mark 43

Tag Hobby shared the images. You can see the photos after the jump.

PAK Boba Fett 38

Star Wars licensing has been in full swing since Disney took over, and part of that push has been an expansion in action figures to the Asian markets. Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts and Movie Realization Series, Medicom’s Mafex line, Kaiyodo’s Revoltech, Hot Toys, and of course – Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai. The PAK figures are alternate takes, artistic representations of classic characters, not meant to be screen accurate. They are big, 10-11 inches tall, solid plastic with tons of articulation and paint apps.

The first one was Darth Vader, who we shot in June. Next up is Boba Fett, now in hand and ready to show off all he’s got. This is another impressive piece, so if you dig the alternate takes I’d grab them while you can. They are moving like hot cakes. Check out our gallery of over 80 shots after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!

Star Wars Black Series Phase 1. Click for larger version.

The Toyark has been rocking Star Wars Black Series since day one. It was a new and updated way for Star Wars fans like ourselves to get back into the collecting game after being out of 3.75 for so long. We’ve loved every minute of it, grabbing the figures and doing the photo shoots for them. The release of Wave 9 (2015 Wave 2) and Deluxe Luke with Wampa marks the end of what we are unofficially calling “Phase 1″. Episode VII is right around the corner – the First Order Stormtrooper, Tie Pilot and Tie Fighter (and we are sure a ton more) will be coming in 6 inch format. We are down with that too! Not to mention more OT, PT & even Rebels characters!

So, let’s celebrate the end of Phase 1 with a 6 Inch Black Series group shot, featuring all the major releases so far in one big ass pic. Below are also links to all our past galleries if you’d like to catch up. Force Friday can’t come soon enough!

Star Wars Legion Helmets

Disney’s D23 Expo kicks off on August 14th. In preparation for the event, they have announced a new slate of collectibles and other merchandise coming to Disney Stores. Among the announcement is word of an all new series of highly articulated die-cast metal Star Wars figures. The new line is being called Star Wars Elite Series. Details from D23:

Star Wars—Disney Store will launch an exclusive collection of Star Wars items at D23 EXPO on Friday, August 14. The collection will feature apparel, collectibles, and toys, including the Star Wars Elite Series, a new line of highly articulated and detailed die cast action figures, representing characters from Star Wars Episodes I-VI. The action figures will be sold individually at Disney Store locations beginning later this year; however, D23 EXPO attendees have the opportunity to purchase the full set of Star Wars Elite Series action figures, which includes D23 EXPO-exclusive versions of R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Additionally at D23 EXPO, Disney Store will introduce Star Wars Legion Helmets, a series of eight vinyl collectible helmets inspired by the Star Wars Legion Helmet project launched in early 2014. Celebrating creativity and Star Wars, the project pulled together artists from across The Walt Disney Company, resulting in 300 Stormtrooper helmets being transformed into diverse pieces of art, which inspired these collectible recreations—epic additions to every Empire.

No photos of the Star Wars Elite Series Figures are available at this time. We’ll have more as it becomes available. To check out the other Disney brands coming to Disney Stores, Click Here. Image attached is of the Legion Helmets.
