Get ready for a Desktop Invasion of 40k as Games Workshop and Bandai teamed-up for a pair of new Action Figure lines!

If you’ve been a fan of 40k for as long as I have, there has always been one thing missing from every collection: Action Figures. Well now that dream is finally coming true thanks to a new partnership between GW and Bandai!

Today, we can show you some of the initial designs for the first-ever Warhammer 40,000 action figure! It’s a fully painted, 7-inch-tall Primaris Space Marine, featuring multiple points of articulation, exchangeable weapons, and all sorts of other cool details, brought to life on a new scale.

That’s right – 7″ tall, fully painted, with multiple points of articulation! It’s a childhood dream come true. I can’t wait to see these in real life and if you’re going to Warhammer Fest, you’re going to get to see them in person first. And that’s not all – if you’re looking for something a bit smaller to collect, then check out these 2″ Chibi figures:



The Chibi figures might not be your thing, they are certainly popular in Japan and other parts of the world. Plus they are just so darn cute they make a fantastic way to introduce non-40k fans to the game!
