Games Workshop has announced a new worldwide licensing partnership with Bandai, which will see a new line of 7″ scale action figures based on Warhammer 40,000. The first figure revealed is a Primaris Space Marine, which will be full articulated, and will feature a number of weapons. Games Workshop has shared a 3D render of the figure, and have had an unpainted prototype on display at the Shizuoka Hobby Show and the Warhammer Fest UK.
Have you ever dreamed of owning your own Warhammer 40,000 action figure? Of course you have! And very soon, that dream will be a reality. Read on for news of one of the most exciting alliances since the unification of Terra and Mars – Warhammer and Bandai.
Today, we can show you some of the initial designs for the first-ever Warhammer 40,000 action figure! It’s a fully painted, 7-inch-tall Primaris Space Marine, featuring multiple points of articulation, exchangeable weapons, and all sorts of other cool details, brought to life on a new scale.
Bandai are, of course, world experts when it comes to action figures like this. Their team have been working directly with the miniatures designers in the Warhammer Studio, including the father of modern Space Marine design, Jes Goodwin,* to ensure that this action figure is a faithful replica of a Primaris Space Marine in Mark X Tacticus armour, every inch true to the lore of Warhammer 40,000.
We think it’s looking amazing, and we can’t wait to get one on our desk – posing him in a suitably heroic poses while we practice making the noise of a tiny boltgun firing.**
They will also be releasing some small Chibi mini figures as well. You can read about those via Games Workshop. Check out a few photos of the new 7″ figure after the jump.
