Bluefin Becomes the U.S. Distributor for Bandai Hobby’s Scale Vehicle Line

Bluefin will be distributing Bandai Hobby’s Scale Vehicle Line of Star Wars Model Kits, debuting this month!

As if Bluefin doesn’t take enough of my money with S.H. Figuarts, Tomashi Nation figures, Chogokin Toy Story Megazords, and what not. Now Bluefins is the U.S. Distributor of Bandai Hobby’s Scale Vehicle Line of Star Wars Model Kits… I don’t really know if there’s much to say, Bluefin is the ultimate distributor of nerd based collectibles in the US. Just give them your money and enjoy your toys. There’s no other way around it. I mean look at the detail they put into their models. These look like you won’t have to worry about painting them either. Although precision sticker placement seems to be key. Anyway here’s the full press release from Bluefin:

Anaheim, CA, November 29, 2016 – Bluefin, the leading North American distributor of toys, collectibles, and hobby merchandise from Japan, Hong Kong and more, expands its relationship with Bandai Hobby to include distribution of Bandai’s line of Star Wars Scale Vehicle Models.

Bandai Hobby is renowned for its high-quality model kits that blend complex detail and innovative construction that fans of all skill levels will enjoy. Manufactured in Japan, the Star Wars Scale Vehicle Model kit line includes notable crafts and space ships from the earlier classic Star Wars films as well as from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the latest Rogue One: A Star Wars Story release. Originally available only for the Asian market, these official U.S. releases will include English instructions and will also have product support from Bluefin.

Bluefin will launch the Bandai Hobby Star Wars model line in early December with the 1/72 and 1/144 scale Red Squadron X-Wing Starfighter Special Set, which features the star fighter depicted in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The kit will be initially available from Amazon.com in time for the film’s North American wide release in December.

Amazon pre-orders are available now at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LX1Y3CA/

Subsequent 1/72 scale kits for the Tie Interceptor, A-Wing Starfighter, and Poe’s X-Wing Fighter will follow in January and will be available at Barnes & Noble stores nationwide, followed by full distribution across the U.S. to hobby and independent store channels.

The remaining Scale Vehicle model kits in the Bandai Hobby Star Wars line are planned for release by Bluefin to additional online and physical retailers throughout 2017. Bluefin also plans to release new future Bandai Hobby Star Wars Scale Vehicle model kits simultaneously as the kits debut in Asia.

Bandai Hobby’s line of Star Wars kits includes:

1/72 & 1/144 RED SQUADRON X-WING STARFIGHTER SPECIAL SET

1/72 TIE INTERCEPTOR

1/72 A-WING STARFIGHTER

1/72 POE’S X-WING FIGHTER

 

Additional kits are planned for 2017
