    Not sure what these have to do with props...


    And it's Kotobukiya, not Kyoto.

    Not only that, but if I'm not mistaken, was that a handbag located next to slave Leia ?

    I assume Luke's lightsaber hand is removable and he comes with the spare. They are considered vinyl "kits" even though the parts are prepainted and plug right in.

    Leia's base is put together wrong in the pic. The purse-looking thing is one of the gargoyle heads from Jabba's dias. It should be facing front with the ring hanging down out of it's mouth. I assume the circle indentation with the peg in the center is where Leia's butt should go.

    The statue's look pretty good, but I don't think they do well with likenesses. I'll wait to judge when I see them painted.

    PS - The company's name is Kotobukiya.

    The bloody Sabre is pointed too. :rolleyes

    I thought the round hole with peg on the front is for the gargoyle with ring in its mouth. The gargoyle is just sat on top of the pedestal for somewhere to put it temporarily I think.

    I take it these are also in the strange 1:7 scale?

    I wonder... could he mean Kaiyodo? But they don't have the SW licence anymore... do they?

    IF they chrome the 3PO and do a decent paint job on the R2........I might actually buy those. The sculpts look pretty darned good so far. I see at least a couple details always lost on the R2 that they have pretty much nailed.

    Or maybe that circle is where the "wrong" gargoyle head actually plugs into... ;)

    Kotobukiya does very nice vinyl-statues (heavy and sturdy too).
    These are of really good quality (cast and paintjob) and the price is even better. Count me in for all 3 :D

    The C-3PO and R2-D2 look nice. :)

    I'd be interested in seeing them do a Boba Fett.

    I'm not much of a statue collector (I have one because it was cheap and looked cool, from the Trigun anime series), but that 3P0 and R2 set does look pretty nice. I'm in with Vaderdarth: If 3P0 is chromed then I may have to pick them up. If it's just gold paint then I'll pass.

    Yes, the Fett was one of their better pieces.

    I like the Snowtrooper myself.

    I like those, but the Leia will depend on how it's painted. If they just throw on some flesh colored paint, it will look to plain.

    man...

    im not liking the pointy saber...

    im not liking how much we are starting to see it...

    im afraid that when the 2007 box set comes out...

    all 6 movies will have the "incorrect" pointy ep3 saber blades. :(

    i think they should use TPM for reference to what the sabers should look like, they just made the OT style look better not just all new.

    am i making a point here?

    The leia will be good with another paint job. Might have to look into getting one of those.

    I'm not a fan of most of the poses of the Kotobukiya Star Wars figures. But some of their recent sculpts are superb. Like the Snowtrooper, Boba Fett, Shock trooper, Commander Bly, and 501st Clone trooper. The Jango Fett is okay with the exception of the ridiculous looking jet pack diarrhea shooting out of it.

    The ones I have a problem with are the over-dynamic, unleashed-style poses, some with half-causcasian/half-asian looking faces. Examples: Obi-Wan, Anakin, Vader, Maul, Biker Scout, Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper, Mace, Yoda, AOTC Clone trooper.

    I just received a Kotobukiya Spider-Man a few days ago.

    I just got my KB Snowtrooper the other day and I must say that it is fantastic. I hope they do as good of a job on the Slave Leia.

    I agree, some of them are hit and miss. Some of the faces are crap, the Yoda (from the Mace & Yoda set) has too many toes, the dancing Stormtrooper..., and the "Crouching Scout, Hidden Biker" suck IMO. :lol
