Check Out These Awesome STAR WARS Model Kits Coming in the Next Few Months
Bluefin and Bandai Namco have announced six upcoming Star Wars model kits. These are all officially licensed and look pretty great. Three of the models will be 1/12 scale character models and include Kylo Ren, a First Order Stormtrooper, and a diorama of BB-8 and D-0. The other three are vehicle models and include a 1/72 scale X-Wing complete with R5 astromech droid, a 1/72 scale Poe Dameron’s X-Wing with R2-D2 (I find it odd that it’s not BB-8), and finally, a 1/144 scale Millennium Falcon. The character models will be available in November 2019 with Kylo Ren costing $38 and the others costing $30. Meanwhile, the X-Wing models will be available in December 2019 for $33. The Millennium Falcon will be available later this month for $60. I really want that awesome green X-Wing model.
