Bandai’s Samurai Sandtrooper is My Favorite 6″ Star Wars Figure so far


I showed you Samurai Vader back in June, as I wondered whether he was a statue or a figure. Well, there are definitely figures in this style, and his legions are being bolstered with samurai Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers, Snowtroopers and Royal Guards.

I thought about trying to make a Last Samurai joke, but if Bandai keeps making these I hope we never get to a “last” one. And by the way…NIPPLES ON SANDTROOPERS! (That’s not why I like them. But now that I’ve said that, you are utterly convinced that it is. I know you.)
