Square Enix is doing it again, throwing their own spin on the Star Wars universe, this time with the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett.
The Variant Play Arts Kai Darth Vader was revealed back in December so it’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything else about this line. So busting out with two new figure announcements is definitely the way to go. Those who prefer more classic, movie accurate designs will scoff but with the deluge of Star Wars product we’re currently experiencing it’s nice to get something different. And these definitely are different, while keeping with the spirit of the characters.
First up is the Stormtrooper.
The style is something you might find in a modern video game, and that in itself isn’t a bad thing. The trooper comes with the standard Play Arts Kai stand, a heavy blaster, a blaster rifle, a muzzle blast, and three sets of hands. Two gun toting, two open, and two fists.
And there there is Boba Fett.
Quite a departure but the basic elements are all there. Fett comes with a PAK stand and some kind of flight stand, a pistol, a rifle, two knives, two backpack jet blasts, and a gauntlet attachment with a flame blast. Oh, and of course three sets of hands. Two gun, two fists, and two open.
These figures come in at about 10.25″ inches tall and will retail for about $100.
