Branding aside, £75 is a reasonable for an assembled and painted action figure of this size from Bandai...

I mean yeah, hence why I said aimed at collectors and not so much their usual target audience.

I guess that is why they went with Bandai rather than doing their own, which they could have done, and probably not been quite so expensive or exaggerated gun-ness.

Just another form of brand advertisement getting bandai to do it. Smart move.

They do not mention the scal (they do mention the size at eight inches).

I am guessing 1/12. I initially expected Action Man size (1/6).

It's interesting to see the re-interpretation needed to articulate the figure.
For me its heading towards R2D2 hotwheels and Darth Vader on a chopper.
I must admit it puts me in mind of those illustrations of  the anatomical exaggerations required to fit into marine armour.
I like it as a novelty but I'd rather spend that kind of money on my hobby .
At the risk of being in a minority .I think it just shows up how naff the new colour schemes are especially once you up scale.

I am shocked
This set of cultist is priced in the range I can call quite Ok, I expected more than 20 pounds, and with discounts I will be able to get it for around 12

There is some general shock around the internet about that kit (and another releasing with it).  BSF has been at the top of the "wait, how much?" pile, even by GW standards...so I'm curious why this is suddenly vaguely priced within the realm of reason.

Space Marine action figure - https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Bandai-Space-Marine-2019

£75.00, delivery within 270 days :o

Worringly, I am tempted o_o
Looks like you weren't the only one. All 9000 have sold.
Would imagine that means this won't be the last one they'll make - though I imagine it will be a while until a non-Marine/Imperial figure gets made.  ;)

This item was collectible both to gw crowd and to bandai figure crowd..
It could probably sell 9000 in the Japan alone  lol

I was strangely attracted to this, though I really, really dislike Space Marines. As far as I know, no-one here has mentioned another collaboration between GW and another giant. All I know of it is from this painting video:

Reminds me how it shouldn't be too long until the Bandai chibis are to be released, though I'm not quite sure via what sales channels they will be available outside of Japan. Playasia has a picture of some painted examples, first time I've seen those.


Still appear to only be available as random packs; a shame as the only one I might look to purchase is the Sister. Though I do like how the Skitarii looks like a Jawa.
