Thread: Other 6" Star Wars Lines

I didn't bother checking the prices to see if they were more or less than the average Japanese retailer. Anyways, I would love to see some of the SW offerings on shelves there, as long as the prices were reasonable.

    I'm wondering if they'll figure something out for SW like they did for Marvel stuff. Releasing the figures with special accessories as a bundle, charging $85-$110 and getting away with them that way. I mean they've already got the Death Star base, there's little reason I can see for them not to release Darth Vader with that, unless Hasbro's SW licensing agreement is even stronger than their Marvel one. How about Darth Maul with his cycle thing they showed a few times? Any other SW set pieces teased at shows?

    I doubt SHF even at $50 will compete against Hasbro, as Black series is the cheaper and entry level that parents will buy for their 6 year old.

    However, IMO, if the Hasbro's license states sole territory rights in a particular scale and type, in this case 6 inch and articulated, it will have to be honoured, and if it's 20 years, it's 20 years.

    IMO, this is the same issue with the SW Bandai kits completely blocked in Europe, as Revel SW kits have the full rights in Europe, but blufin found a loophole for the USA for the kits, however only for the vehicles and not the characters likely due to Hasbro's block on 6inch articulated.

    That Vader looks awesome! I'm tossing up getting the Mafex. I'm interested to know which version of Vader does everyone think is the best in the 6" scale? .

    I realised Mafex have a Rogue One Darth Vader coming out in August which looks excellent, so I've put a pre order in for that at Ami Ami. It's unclear whether it comes with the many accessories that their original Vader came with, and especially hazy regarding the inclusion of a lightsaber blade?!
