Sideshow has posted a video preview for their Star Wars – Ralph McQuarrie Concept Series Stormtrooper Statue. We got our first look at the statue at Sideshow’s San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Booth. This Stormtrooper is crafted based on iconic concept art by the great Ralph McQuarrie. The final design would see some edits and tweaks, but fans have always loved seeing these great early designs get their own collectibles.

The latest 1/12 Scale Star Wars Articulated Model Kit coming from Bandai is a Sandtrooper. Like previous releases in the line, this figure will come unassembled, but will be pre-painted. Once put together, it becomes a fully articulated figure. You can alter the appearance of the figure as it includes an adjustable shoulder pad, which can be displayed with a white, black or orange overlay. Also included are three backpack variations and an assortment of swappable hands and weapons. Also included is a Tatooine desert themed figure base.
The Sandtrooper is scheduled for release on August 29th in Japan. It will be priced at 2,916 Yen (about $23 USD). You can check out a few photos by reading on.
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.
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.

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 Black Series Deluxe Wave 3 is here and we wrap up our Week of Black Series galleries today with Luke Skywalker and Wampa set. This continues the Hoth thread along side the Han Solo and Tuantuan, and is equally as impressive. The Wampa is articulated, has weathering on his white fur, and even has a removable arm to recreate Luke’s lightsaber escape! Check out our set of over 50 images after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
Star Wars Black Series Wave 9 continues today with Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise. The fig features Leia in her Episode VI get up, when she infiltrated Jabba’s palace to free Han Solo from the gangster’s clutches. Maybe this one will be more appropriate for some folks, who knows. :). Check out over 35 shots after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
