Next up in our look at items that released early at NYCC from Bluefin and Tamashii Nations is the S.H. Figuarts Star Lord and Explosion set. This is another S.H. Figuarts release pairing a figure with a Tamashii Nations accessory piece. The explosion set consists of 3 exploding pieces in neon pink, playing off the funky tones seen on GotG. Star Lord dropped in Japan solo a while back, but the US version won’t be hitting state side for a bit. We’ve done up over 45 HD images so read on to check it and some additional thoughts out!
S.H. Figuarts Marvel Cinematic Universe Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star Lord with Explosion Set
The sculpt and paint were executed super well on this one. Head to toe he has a real-world color tone to him, and the 3D printing really nailed the beard. The likeness to Chris Pratt is the best on any figure to date IMO, but not 100% perfect. Articulation is good, but limited in the hips a tad, nothing like Spider-Man. The jacket bends with posing and reveals Star Lord’s full logo tee underneath. The explosion set is a repainted version of the previously released items, but the super-pink coloring makes them unique and works perfectly here. If you are building out your MCU in Figuarts scale, this is a winner.
