ToyLand: New Samurai Inspired Star Wars Figs Look Amazing
The newest members of the Star Wars Movie Realization line are a great addition to any fan collection.
It’s no secret that George Lucas took a lot of inspiration from Feudal Japan when creating the Star Wars universe. Tamashii Nations – one of Bandai’s collectors brands – has created some awesome Star Wars figs for their Meishou Movie Realization line that fully incorporate Samurai armor into the Star Wars universe. They’re packed with detail, and come with a bunch of accessories. Pre-orders for all of these are open now.

Sohei Darth Maul – $89.99
Sohei Darth Maul, as envisioned by sculptor Takayuki Takeya. “Sohei” means warrior monk in Japanese, a perfect fit for this fanatical character.
