Well, I guess this is kinda cool.... right?
Yeah. I guess. I think... Damn, I'm really undecided on this figure!
I like the idea, but I think it lends itself to more of a statue than an action figure.
Everyone knows that the inspiration for Darth Vader's design came from old style Samurai armor, so I guess this design just takes that idea to its most literal conclusion. The results are pretty baddass, regardless of my own ambivalence on the figure itself.
This figure by Bandai will stand just about 7" tall.
Are Samurai style Stormtroopers in the works, too?
This figure will be out in Dec/Jan for around $90.00
