Can't believe how expensive the BF Slave 1 version is currently, hoping for some releaseses that are normal priced this year
I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So I am unawares outside of this catalog announcement that Revell had an agreement to distribute Bandai kits there in the EU. Sure with shipping and your VAT taxes there, it may be likely cheaper to buy a Bandai kit from Revell than ordering direct from Japan. Certainly it was cheaper for us in the states to order the Zvezda direct from Russia and have it shipped here (around $100 bucks US back in the day) than the Revell repackaged version which went for nearly double.Revell is reselling Bandai Star Wars kits for more than 1,5 years in Europe, already. And they're much cheaper than buying them from Japan.
You're a bit late to the party, INVAR.
These are all deeply discounted kits, but on the shelf right above it is the Sandtrooper kit at full priceIn the picture above, I notice that it is all First Order stuff. I don't mind the Sequels, personally. But I think everyone would like to see more from the OT and possibly, the PT. Definitely the Mandalorian.
Except the only thing they are creating new here is the Rey pilot figure. Everything else is existing molds. So minimal new tooling costs. Even minimal sales on this would likely still net them some kind of profit.lol... there goes theory that bandai dont see any money in the sequel trilogy /s
Yeah true but at least it also means that any x-wing shortages are about to be fufilled and anyone buying it will discretely disgard the figurineExcept the only thing they are creating new here is the Rey pilot figure.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be happy to see them continue to put out Star Wars product. Any SW product. I'd love to see them produce some new stuff... but as has been discussed, who knows what their license will allow or what their actual profitability is? But I love what they have produced. I've doubled up on some of them and there are several more I'd be totally willing to double up on, too. So new kits or not, I hope they don't stop producing the stuff that's already out there any time soon.Yeah true but at least it also means that any x-wing shortages are about to be fufilled and anyone buying it will discretely disgard the figurine
