and now for something completely different - Samurai Star Wars!

A long time ago in a parallel universe far,
far away... 

Bandai is releasing this December a highly collectible Samurai Darth Vader in their "Movie Realisation Series" (whatever this is supposed to mean). SDV will be 18 centimetres (7 inches) tall and will cost 9,504 yen (US$79.63). It will feature at least two different samurai crests on his helmet but the coolest by far is the design based on the Death Star.
 
 


 


 
Bandai will also release an extremely cool Sand Storm Trooper with an assortment of weapons and paraphernalia and a splendid Boba Fett. A red-suited Imperial Royal Guard, is scheduled for April 2016. How about a Princess Leia in full maiko attire guys? I don't know if the force will awaken in the forthcoming Episode VII but a samurai Kurai Daifu (Darth Vader) with katana lightsabers fighting Rukas Sora Hokosha (Skywalker) in planet Japanino is something I would definitely like to see.

Hey Alex, I have no idea really but would be very cool if they were not pre-painted.
