I’m just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe. A new Mandalorian joins the Bandai Tamashii Nations Movie Realization Line as Ronin Jango Fett! Inspired by the Star Wars Attack of the Clones armor, Jango Fett sports a cool grey tone with blue highlights, comes with double pistols and a sword. His backpack, eye scope and full samurai gear finish the piece off. As with previous Movie Realization figures, he’s a tall 7 inch scale figure and superbly done. Sculpt and paint are top notch here. He pairs well with the previously released Boba Fett and Prototype Armor Boba Fett to give you a solid Mandalorian Samurai squad. We’ve done up shots to show what he can do, read on to check out over 40 HD shots!
San Diego Comic Con 2017 is next week, the yearly gathering that gives us news, reveals and exclusives galore (we will be there in full effect starting Wednesday by the way)! Some of the best have always come from Bluefin Brands and Tamashii Nations and this year is no different. Today we are taking a look at their Star Wars Movie Realization Prototype Armor Boba Fett. Boba was my first offering into the Movie Realization line which blends ancient Samurai armor and Star Wars characters into an altverse that looks damn cool. This SDCC exclusive will have Boba in his all white get up based on original concept art which is now a go-to for Boba Fett repaints. The figure will retail at the show for $95 US and has a limited release. We’ve run him through the motions courtesy of an early copy via Bluefin Brands, so read on to check out over 45 HD images of him in action and see if you want to grab him next week!
Bandai Japan / Tamashii Nations have been producing some really great alternate universe versions of classic Star Wars characters for a couple years now. The Star Wars Movie Realization line feature (to date) Empire aligned characters in ancient Samurai themes. So far we have 2 versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Royal Guard, Sandtrooper, Sandtrooper Commander, and Stormtroopers in 3 samruai themed flavors. There are also more on the way with Jango Fett, Proto Armor Bob Fett, and Darth Maul.
Today we are taking a look at one of those Stormtroopers – the Yumiashigaru Stormtrooper – aka “The Archer”. He comes with sculpt that mixes existing Stormtrooper and Royal Guard bodies along with some new work on the head and shoulder guards. On the back, he sports his arrow pack and bow, which are both futuristic / steampunk in nature. This line mixes classic, futuristic and Steampunk-like styling giving it a unique look. At a beefy 7 inch scale, they have a great presence on any display shelf. Let’s take a look after the break with over 55 HD images!
At Star Wars Celebration 2017 – Bluefin and Tamashii Nations put together an art display of their Star Wars Movie Realization figures. They feature the figures in dynamic and dramatic scenarios and are printed on canvas, sprawling a 20 foot wall like an art gallery. I am happy to say that 4 of my pictures made the cut! Other artists featured include the phenomenally talented Sgt. Bananas.
I wanted to share my pics that were featured in the display, and some additional ones from the same session that didn’t make the cut. I’d also like to give props to Kevin Watts, who did up the temple diorama seen in these pics, he pulled it together super quick! Hit him on Instagram and inquire about dios if you need one for your set up or shoots.

The Realization line from Bandai Tamashii Nations is an alt-verse exploration of modern sci-fi and super hero characters done up in Samurai times. The Movie Realization line for Star Wars has been stellar, with lots of Troopers, Boba Fett and Vader. They’ve expanded the concept to the Manga Realization line, which features Marvel characters. Today we are taking a look at Iron Man and his Koutetsu Samurai Iron Man Mk 3. This is a crazy re-imagining of Iron Man with Samurai armor and even some steampunk inspired blasters and a jetpack. We’ve done up a gallery to show off what he can do so read on to check it out!
Bandai’s Movie Realization line is an alternate take on Star Wars characters where they are re imagined as Feudal Japan warriors. So far we have 2 Darth Vaders, Boba Fett, today’s Stormtrooper, and there are more on the way. It’s a unique take that isn’t for everyone but you can’t deny that the figures are superbly done for what they are. The Stormtrooper is another solid figure to go along with Darth Vader and Boba Fett, let’s take a look after the break courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!
