Time for a little catch up today with a look at the recently released Star Wars Movie Realization C-3PO figure from Bandai Tamashii Nations. This is the first Rebel / Good Guy in the Samurai inspired line up. He’s using two Japanese themes – Honyaku and Karakuri. Honyaku meaning a translator, and Karakuri was the ancient term loosely meaning robot, think marionette doll style. He comes packed with alternate hands and a fan with the Rebel Alliance insignia.
We’ve run him through a quick session read on to check out over 30 HD shots. Don’t forget, this guy and other Realization figures, along with many Bandai Star Wars model kits are still on sale for Bluefin’s Star Wars Day sale, which you can check out here.

Star Wars Celebration is in full swing and many of the companies we love to collect are there. Bandai / Bluefin / Tamashii Nations is among them and they have a display of action figure photography featuring their Star Wars Movie Realization line. This is the line where Japanese Feudal Warriors like Samurai are merged with Star Wars lore for a completely unique alternate universe range of figures.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to contribute to this display again, I did so back in 2017 as well. I wanted to share the full resolution version of the pictures shown on display (4 of them), along with another 35 or so from the same sessions that produced the ones actually printed and out at the show. I like to shoot fast with lots of repetition, slight angle and lighting changes, then pick the best at the end. Sometimes it’s hard and you get a ton of unused but still cool shots. So at least they’ll have a home on the web now!
Read on to check them out, and make sure to stop by the Tamashii Nations booth at Star Wars Celebration 2019 this weekend if you are at the show!

Bandai Tamashii Nations is back with the next Star Wars Movie Realization release, the Kanreichiashigaru Snowtrooper. This is another in their line up of classic Japanese warrior classes merging with the Star Wars universe into pure bad ass figures. At the bulky end of the 7 inch scale, they feature a wide range of articulation, super intricate sculpts and fantastic paint details, even on a pure white figure such as this. No part is left untouched. He comes packed with a sword, sheath, an extra set of hands, backpack and steampunk-esque version of the E-Web cannon, complete with tripod. You can even remove his protective hood to reveal an ornate helmet design underneath (which I thought was super cool)!
This is another great entry to the line, made up of all Empire bad guys at the moment, and the first in the Snowtrooper variant. He’s out now in Japan and should be hitting the States soon! Read on to check out our pics of him after the break courtesy of Bluefin / Tamashii Nations!
Time for another Realization gallery from the folks at Tamashii Nations. This round we get the Star Wars Movie Realization Yariashigaru Stormtrooper. AKA – the spear one. :). There are a lot of Stormtrooper variants, and this one gives us a spear weapon as it’s primary focus, along with a back mounted Empire flag. His plating features the Empire cog on the chest similar to the Royal Guards and Archer versions previously released.
The paint is a little sharper on this one compared to the original stormtrooper, less yellow washing and more of a mix between gold and black The helmet gets great depth from that. As with the previous Realization figures, articulation is great but a little limited in range due to the plated armor. Still a great amount for such a big bulky figure though, most poses are easily obtained. Construction, build quality and balance are all on point. Feels good in the hand and looks sharp on the shelf.
For those casually following or new to the Realization line, below is a list of what’s out or coming as of today, with links to the one’s we’ve covered.
Samuraidaisho Darth Vader
Ronin Boba Fett
