Have you ever dreamed of owning your own Warhammer 40,000 action figure? Of course you have! And very soon, that dream will be a reality. Read on for news of one of the most exciting alliances since the unification of Terra and Mars – Warhammer 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



Bandai are, of course, world experts when it comes to action figures like this. Their team have been working directly with the miniatures designers in the Warhammer Studio, including the father of modern Space Marine design, Jes Goodwin,** to ensure that this action figure is a faithful replica of a Primaris Space Marine in Mark X Tacticus armour, every inch true to the lore of Warhammer 40,000.

We think it’s looking amazing, and we can’t wait to get one on our desk – posing him in a suitably heroic poses while we practice making the noise of a tiny boltgun firing.**

Not only that, but Bandai are also going to be producing a series of smaller figures in the Chibi style!*** These are going to be 2-inch-tall figures based on some of the Imperium’s greatest defenders – an Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor, an Eversor Assassin, a Sister of Battle, a Skitarii Ranger and a Space Marine. These diminutive heroes might seem a bit unusual to those not familiar with them, but in Japan these little guys are everywhere and a fun way to introduce more people to our great Warhammer community. For the rest of us, it’s another cool way to adorn your desk, shelf or cabinet.



All of these figures are going to be available worldwide and you’ll be able to see them for the first time this weekend! Not only will we have them at Warhammer Fest, but they’ll also be on display at Games Workshop’s stand at the Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan.

If you like, you can read the full press release about this new collaboration now, in English and Japanese.

These promise to be just the first in a range of awesome figures created in partnership with Bandai and we’ll have more information, including how you can get your hands on them, soon! Meanwhile, it’s not too late to grab your tickets for Warhammer Fest, where you’ll be able to see loads of amazing new things, including the Space Marine action figure.

* We know we have!
**Pew, Pew!
*** Derived from a Japanese verb meaning “to shorten”, Chibi is a style of caricature based around large heads and stubby limbs. Funko POP! figures, like the new Space Marines, are another example of Chib

People have been asking for an action figure Marine for years, so I expect that to sell quite well. And one imagines there'll be stacks of repaints.

I'm not really a big fan of chibi stuff myself, but it's at least a reasonable variety for a first wave.

feth... I just got a little poorer looking at the action figure announcement. Will buy. I'm not a fan of chibi anything but congrats to those who like that style getting their itch scratched as well. Now.. if only Bandai could make plastic marine vehicles similar to how they do gundam kits that are multicolor plastic, look great, are poseable, and require no glue so as to show GW how it's actually done well...

Games, anyone? Miniatures, maybe? Not just a couple characters and two new figures buried in limited time only boxed sets.

Or are we really just going to see GW reeling off tchotchkes until 9th edition?

??? I love a good rant as much as the next guy but does anyone feel GW is putting TOO FEW games and minis?

I can't even keep up with the stuff I love. Had to say no to Titanicus, just not enough time and space.

Oh hell yes! I wonder though, is this Bandai Japan making these? If the Marine is a Figuarts, it'll be amazing. I'll need those SD figures as well. Curious if they'll be pre colored capsule toys or something else.

It irks me badly that after so many examples for games like dawn of war or space marine, GW still can't figure out how to 'sell' power armor at a larger scale. The hips and upper legs are ridiculously badly proportioned. No excuse at 7", I can't unsee it, there is an 8 ft tall 60 pound dude in that suit. Git'im a sammich!

It's likely a compromise to add poseability at the waist with a point of articulation (ball joint?).

I still quite like it but I agree, there's no real reason why they can't get proper proportions on this guy. The other Bandai ranges don't seem that limited in that regard.

If only GW took feedback on these early design images.

A Battlefleet Gothic mechacolle would be enough for me to actually take more than a passing interest in the game. I doubt it'd happen, but something like that might be enough to start piquing Japanese hobbyists' interest in more gaming scale models.

I've never understood why GW or some other company hasn't ever tried to make more of a substantial push into Japanese hobby territory. It happens every now and then but nothing seems to stick.

I like my plamo as much as the next nerd but all those kits start to take up substantial space over the years, much more than a typical wargaming model!

I might even have to break my no toy policy and pick up a marine...

It's like Terminator thighs, one you see it, you can't really not see it ever again. Which sucks, because in both cases the rest of it is awesome.

Maybe as has been posited the issue revolves around articulation, but honestly I still lean heavily to it being an approved aesthetic choice. Bandai is way too good at this stuff not to be able to figure out how to make bigger hips and uppers legs thicker than the wrists...

On the Japan front, I guess part of it is western companies just sticking what they perceive as popular, based on what sells in our neck of the woods.

GW seem to be making a determined go of it though. Space Marine Heroes is lined up for a third series, which suggests they’re getting some kind of return on the investment. And marrying up to Bandai is equally a move of a company interested in seeing what’s going to work?

This is very intriguing, Games Workshop cooperating with Bandai is the stuff of dreams! Tau Mecha Gundam is, hopefully, one step closer!

Disappointed as anybody else that they've gone for a Primaris action figure but i'll almost certainly buy one if it promotes the idea of furthering the range. Really have my fingers crossed that this is the embryonic stage of a long and fruitful partnership.

I get the impression that the Japanese scene is even more transitory than ours to for a property to remain desirable they've got to carry on pushing out new stuff even faster than most are comfortable with, and over a broader range

so even if a first release goes well they've got to keep on pushing stuff out or they vanish,

(so current GW could fit quite well)

Shame it’s not a full series at the same scale (and price!) as the Hasbro Star Wars figures.

Honestly Bandai kits are pretty damn reasonable for what you get. I predict that it is actually GW that will cause the price to go up, but if this is detailed in line with an RG or HG Gunpla, then it should be between 20-30. Because of GW I would say prob more like 35-40.

Could be well off, we'll see -

I've been wanting this for well over a decade and this is an instant buy for me. I hope the chibi style figures are along the line of Nendroids and are poseable as well.
[edit...] Well after reading the press release they are the mini single pose soft pvc toys that you get at arcades. Hopefully they are sold as a set and not all blind buys here in the west.

I really wish the figuarts (assuming it's figuarts quality) action figure wasn't primaris.

Am I alone in hating the aesthetic of the primaris marines? I like the size, but the weapons, armor, vehicles, etc are all gak imo. But I'll still buy it cause I'm a sucker.

Hopefully they sell well and consider some of the other models. An aspect warrior, wraithguard, thousand sons, are all high on my list.

I assume the Space Marine Hero range has driven this. It would be nice if they had older space marine armours planned. Might see more tomorrow, maybe.

The only thing I don't really like about Primaris are the helmet options.

Not sure I would buy a space marine action figure, or chibis. But If you made a line of Nurglings and squigs that I could set up creating chaos all over my office, that might be fun.


I think they should put the rules for 40k on the boxes as well. Just in case people want to collect the action figures, and play actual 40k at a larger scale with them.

Maybe Bandai will grace us with a plamo marine that's roughly the scale of most their 1/144 mech offerings or Star Wars humanoids at some future point.

I think a model kit would make both companies quite a bit of cash as well. Think of all the limited editions Bandai could paywall behind their online storefront!

It's not a model kit, so you're looking at the wrong price comparisons. It's more likely going to be priced like their Figuarts lines, so more like $60-100 USD depending on size(not just height but mass), accessories, whether it includes a stand, and so on. Most likely, it'll be in the $70-90 range like their Sentai/Kamen Rider figuarts.

Primaris can use mostly any helmet a standard marine can. (Beakies are a bit of a pain to fit mind you)

Yikes... I haven't bought an action fig in years (whenever the Two Towers lotr movie came out) but I was thinking it would be along the lines of the price of various premium McFarlane figs. If it is that much more, I'll pass.

To be fair, Figuarts are much better quality and infinitely more posable than McFarlane stuff which only looks good in certain poses or lacks the joints to actually hold realistic poses(looking at you, McFarlane Halo figures). In addition, they include way more accessories such as 6-10 extra hands(many of which are unique to certain characters for trademark poses), extra head/faces for various expressions, as well as pretty much any item you could think of associated with said character. For example, Tyrannoranger and Dragonranger from Zyuranger(the basis of the original Power Rangers) included a set of alternate neck and belt pieces to replicate their "Powerful Rangers" appearance in a single episode of Akibaranger.

I have a mighty need for the large Bandai figure, their kits are very good. I have one of their Stormtrooper kits and they are well made.

I suspect my Wife will one the chibi minis. I'll probably buy the original Rogue Trader style Space Marine for myself too.

Tau are definitely going to be a Bandai kit at some point. Outside of more marines though, would they do Inquisitorial agents or more lithe guys like Eldar Striking Scorpions?

I am honestly surprised that we haven't had a tabletop Gundam rules set, with add ons for Giant monsters, and Godzilla.... But that's just me. Have zero interest in any GW's crossovers.

As long as I can remember, I've never seen a rules set to use the models in a tabletop game.... I hope I am wrong, and it exists somewhere.

Also, I thought the knee pads were supposed to bend, protecting gaps in the armour. Might be too difficult to do in that scale though. Rifle is way too thick, tho...

For example, Tyrannoranger and Dragonranger from Zyuranger(the basis of the original Power Rangers) included a set of alternate neck and belt pieces to replicate their "Powerful Rangers" appearance in a single episode of Akibaranger.


I think I may have seen some of them at Barnes and Noble if they're the same brand as the Star Wars samurai figs they have there. Yeah, they're very nice but not $80+ nice IMO even with the accessories. YMMV of course and I'm sure some of them will sell to 40k fans. I'll just have to wait for them to hit ebay at less than half price as it looks like some are at least judging by Star Wars samurai prices on a quick google search.

The Samurai Star Wars figs are a different series and are a bit larger. At B&N, you're looking for the DBZ, Mario, and Sailor Moon figs in the squarish boxes with window fronts.

If we can get these through Bluefin and/or Bandai America, that'll probably bring down the price to closer to the $35-60 range.

Well, that display proves that the SD figures are indeed Gashapon. Interesting.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that the Marine will be joining the FiguARTS series. Unfortunately, that means you'll likely be paying Imperial Knight level prices. Don't expect to pay under $70 USD for him. Plan on him being over $100.

Upper half of the actioin figure looks good, but so much wrong with the bottom half. Weird small groin, knee articulation, feet are oversized...hope it's just a prototype cause it needs one or two revisions.

It's what happens when you take a design that was never designed with functionality in mind (marine armor) and try to make it functional, even if only on action model scale.

No, the reason the action figure will be over $100 won't be because of GW. It'll be because it's coming from Bandai Collector's Division. Their Robot Damashii line started out at a reasonable 2,000 yen. Same with SH Figuarts. Now, if they even bother releasing them to retail instead of making them web only exclusives, you're looking at 8,000 yen easily. So that's around $80 for a 5" - 6" action figure. This Marine will easily be $100. $80 if we're lucky.

What Barzam said. All of the GW licensed stuff has been released at the standard pricing for that style of product, so expect the same here with the thing being that this style of product's standard pricing already starts that high.

Often enough the prototypes for action figures will be made at larger scales to ensure details and articulation features work as intended... Do we know how big is the figure in the picture? Do we know if it's scale is what they intend for release?

I'm not a chibi guy, and I don't normally care about action figures. On rare occasions I'll pick one up to put on a desk or something (had a VF-1J Valkyrie/Veritech on my desk for a long time). They'd have to do a stunning Eldar figure to get any of my attention, or a proper MkVI Beaky marine or something really classic.

Yeah, not a fan. I wish the figure got Dawn of War II treatment (where marine proportions got overhaul and weapons/armour decorations were made more realistic for human scale instead of being just ugly, blown up variants of mini decor). This image is still one of the best SM re-imaginings ever made (funnily enough making primaris-like marines a decade before actual primaris)...

It'll be approximately in-scale to Figmas. A little on the small side, considering it's a Primaris, but close enough that a shelf in one of my display cases is going to be turned into a diorama of Space Marines teaming up with and/or purging assorted magical girls. I'm not sure which way it'll go yet.

They're a line of premium figures akin to Bandai's Figuarts and in a similar scale but by a different company.

The random nature was a known factor from the start, but they conveniently only mentioned it in the press release rather than the Warhammer Community article: https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/ENG-Press-Release-Bandai-Games-Workshop-May-2019.pdf

Strangely, that press release also mentions the first wave will have 5 products, but there is quite a difference between those 5 between the initial announcement and what now shows up on that online store: Inquisitor and the Marine with ork head replaced by Ultramarine and Grey Knight. In the pictures on page 4, those two waves appear to be differentiated by being in different colours (grey for the first release, beige for the supposed second), but then those colours are reversed on page 3, where the Tempestus Scion and Beaky are grey while Assassin, Ultramarine and Sister are beige... I'm confused.

Blind purchase is a shame regardless. Not an issue if interested in all of them I suppose, but I'm not, let alone looking to end up buying duplicates of figures I don't much like. Guess that'll be either ebay or nothing.
And come on, do some Xenos in a next wave. Funko was all Space Marines, these are all Imperial so far. Sure, Space Marines are iconic, but don't tell me a Tempestus Scion is more iconic than an Ork or Necron. Mostly, however, I just really, really want to see them do a Tyranid in this style. Might even continue buying random packs until I had one in that case...

I assumed they Chibi-figures wouldd be around the same sort of size as Funko Mystery Minis and similar stuff to that, have i got something wrong or are they smaller at 2 inches?. They're nice figures (even though the style is something I usually dislike) and there are a few I'd like to have, but if they're a smaller size than Funko stuff then that combined with the randomization of them is a bit offputting to me.

~$65-100 going by their Figuarts prices. Same price range as any other high end, highly articulated collector's figure.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
So that people have an idea of what to expect:



Figuarts Thanos here is an 8" tall Bandai figure with the same style of articulation, most likely using the same materials, and most likely with the same bulk(maybe less than the Marine thanks to shoulder pads). He included 3 pairs of hands, 3 different faces, and the sword. He retailed for $95 USD. Drop the face swapping, and I'd put it around $80-85 for the Marine.

I fully understand the idea for a basic Space Marine, but to get any kind of money out of me in that range...it'd have to be something way the hell more interesting. A dirty Space Wolf Terminator, or something with some kind of cool factor. Ultramarines/Primaris basic fella ain't getting it done.

I on the other hand may well consider getting one if it helps in GW and Bandai collaborating further, some Xenos or Imperial Guard would be ideal but even accessories for said Primaris (pistol, sword, jetpack etc) would also be interesting.

Let's be honest, knowing my luck they'll release a bloody Stormcast!

I'll consider getting one if the price isn't too horrible. With luck, this won't be a ond and done type thing, either. I'm also very interested in those keshi figures. I need an SD Eversor.

Even with the complaints (not dismissing them btw) I imagine this will sell out in pre-order. I suppose that could be good though because then maybe they will make other matching scale figures. Hopefully not just Marines either. I wouldn't mind a Fire Warrior or even, god forbid, a Crisis Suit. That isn't going to happen but a girl can dream.

Just so. I'm not too interested in this specific one, but I hope it does well because there is no shortage of subsequent stuff I would want.

So repaint this one? Plenty of action figure customizer guides out there. Most important thing to remember is sanding extra material to give your joints room for your clear coats.

Honestly, I doesn't make sense for Bandai to release a paint your own figure as custom figures are notoriously hard to keep the paint job undamaged and still usable as figures, especially the higher end super articulated ones like this. It's doable, but the average consumer would just prefer a model for that(hence their Figure Rise series of models).

Coming up for preorder next weekend: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/09/29/coming-soon-grym-watchers-abominable-intelligence-sporty-saurus-and-an-action-figure/

Earlier this week, we told you all about the awesome Space Marines Primaris Intercessor action figure that is being made under license by Bandai. Now, we can reveal he is going to be available to order from Saturday!

We’ll have more details later in the week on exactly how you can get your hands on this incredible, 8-inch-tall poseable model. Make sure you’ve got space on your shelf!
Bit earlier than expected, so chances are it'll sell out over the weekend but will hopefully be available once more around Christmas.

I didn't notice if anyone reported it or not, but the JPY price has been circulated. Expect retail to be ¥11,000. Looks like Japanese preorders should be up by 10/5.

Price is about what I expected. I was hoping it'd be a bit less since there's no die cast or anything to really bump the price that high. It's just kinda big. Size expected to be about 8". Here's hoping that by the time I get to go to Japan, I'll be able to snag one on markdown.

Also, chibis should be releasing around November.

So that’d be around 90-100 Euro? Going to pass on this, I think.

It's not a GW product, though. It's a Bandai product and that's actually shorter than their typical lead time.

Indeed for a Bandai preorder that's swift

Edit: and note Bandai will be making a few to sell themselves (I wonder if the total production planned is a round 10,000), so there's a chance you might get one that way from a store (well in Japan or the USA, i'd have my doubts in Europe)

Eh Kickstarters do really well and they have longer and more uncertain lead times so yeah Q2 of 2020 isn't a bad target for most.

The main issue is going to be the high price for a luxury item that only has 9000 products worldwide. I can see those selling out REALLY fast and that's without resellers jumping in to get some of the stock for resale.


I think if you want one its going to be sitting there with your finger on F5 on Saturday ready for that launch time and then crossing your fingers you get into the line fast enough.

It's not GW its Bandai and it sounds like its basically running like a Kickstarter with the goal being 9000 units on order. Basically its a huge preorder and once the order is full it goes into production. Early 2020 isn't a bad date either for a product to go from concept model into a full production run.

Judging by their image / diagram, you order, it's produced in Asia and then shipped to customers.

So they left out the bit where customers in the UK (post Brexit) and the EU will have to pay couriers' handling / admin fees and then an additional VAT / Tax of approximately 25% of the value of the entire order.

Should be fun!

I don't think that's going to be an issue,

the 9000 (or less if it goes badly) units ordered via GW are going to be shipped to GW or GW in Europe or the USA depending on where the buyer is and then sent on from there

although that's not to say the container with the stuff for the UK might have to wait a long time for a customs inspection before actually getting in if things go badly Brexit wise

Not like Kickstarter, no. They're producing 9000 units, the rest will be for sale on release if they don't sell out during pre-order. This is how Bandai and pretty much every high end collectible company has done pre-orders since internet shopping became a thing, way before Kickstarter was a thing. We're not funding a project, we're buying a product that's already in the early stage of mass production.

Not sure what to think, really. It's a high-priced collector piece and while i'm glad to see some high quality GW merchandise being made, I do sort of wish that they'd instead gone for a brand that would have made them a bit more accessible and easily expandable to figures of other stuff. The figure itself looks great though (even though I really dislike Primaris Marines), the colour choice is a bit uninspired but Ultramarines are the most iconic chapter so i can understand that.

I assumed this would have been something that would be available in shops for at least while but it seems it's more of an exclusive limited thing than I expected and it might not even get that far. Is 9000 a reasonable number for this sort of thing worldwide? How does that compare to other Figuarts stuff?

Where did you see that they'll be sent to GW first? I can't see that mentined on the Community article about it.

now I might be wrong and we'll see the warning when the pre-order comes up but i'd be surprised

Prepainted as Ultramarines. Painting action figures is generally fairly hard to over the joints, but you may be lucky here as you don't need to repaint the piping on the joints I imagine, so you could mask it and focus on the other areas for the most part.

The tricky bit will be how hard disassembly is for priming, which is hard to tell at this point.

You can generally strip toy tampographs with rubbing alcohol and a cotton bud.

Platunan- that site had neither of those. Either way, I was talking about how Bandai makes a bunch of a 'limited number' world-wide while any Gunpla/Figuarts are can only be bought in Japan/China. I'll leave it at that since it is slowly becoming off topic.

I was thinking of just ordering it when it's available on the UK site and deciding if I really want it later, but is it something that can't be cancelled? The terms and conditions say you normally get 14 days to return it once it gets to you, buy then they say later on that items that are "made to order" don't count.

Also very unclear on if there's a possibility of customs charges and such with this item.

This should come under distance selling regs. It is not made to order so does not come under those rules. Made to order is where you place an order and they make one specifically for you, where if 10 are ordered they make 10, if 50 are ordered they make 50. This is just a limited run pre-order, which comes under the standard distance selling regs.

Hell no, I’m out for sure. The sad thing is my 7 yr old wanted one and chances are I would have grabbed another one to sit on my book shelf. There’s no way I could warrant 75 for one let and 150 for two of them.

It’s a shame but if gw had gone down the road of smaller scale along the line of 6 inch action action figures with scope for say orks and imperial guard figures, then I’m pretty sure we would of had bought a bucket load over time. Thanks but no thanks gw.

On the webstore, it has the Made to Order symbol, a Made to Order tab next to the product description and text stating "This product is made to order and will be dispatched within 270 days."
I think there is reason to believe GW views this as a Made to Order product.

Also, these aren't safety tested to the same standards as mass market children's products. This style of figure is likely to break in multiple places with the rigorous play of kids. They're designed for display.

For these sorts of adult collector orientated products, very much so. This is actually on the cheaper side.

Yes. As I said earlier in this very thread, Figuarts Thanos, a figure the same height, style, and accessories count as this one, was $95 USD. These style of high quality Collectors figures in small print runs are typically in the $60-100+ price range.

That's what I was hoping for. I've seen some of their products go for a ton on ebay, though ebay doesn't reflect the true cost of items. It's just like how those statues of pop culture icons are sold for 200-500 dollars. I think there may have even been a Guilliman v Khorne Berserker one released

It’s a shame but if gw had gone down the road of smaller scale along the line of 6 inch action action figures with scope for say orks and imperial guard figures, then I’m pretty sure we would of had bought a bucket load over time. Thanks but no thanks gw.



He will be 8 by the time he gets it. If they are anything like my kids they will have long forgotten it in 270 days.



Also, these aren't safety tested to the same standards as mass market children's products. This style of figure is likely to break in multiple places with the rigorous play of kids. They're designed for display.



That’s a good point but in his case it’s also a moot point as he won’t be getting his hands on one any way. Lol.
He will just have to stick to playing with stars wars figures and a handful of halo figures.

Sorry but $100 US for this is mind bogglingly insane. You can get an MG V3 Gundam RX-78-2 for half that, and Several MG VerKA's for less...

The balls on GW to charge that much for a vastly simpler kit is pretty mindblowing... even by GW standards, which are already pretty high to begin with, this is beyond overpriced imo.

One has to keep in mind the price for this might not be set by GW. Also you could argue that the Gundam has a much bigger audience in that market and a much longer legacy of such products; whilst a marine is a bit of a gamble. Especially since many customers might get a "real" marine instead of a supersize one.

It's not a model kit, it's a collector's grade action figure like their Figuarts line and is priced in line with said Figuarts. It's only $5 more than Thanos was.

preordered mine. £75 is not terrible for a collector's piece (for comparison, the FW collectable.SM was over 100 and I believe it was a lot smaller.

Planning on heavily converting mine to Chaos, I imagine quite a lot of those 9000 will not be staying loyalist

£75 is a bargain, that's little more than two infantry boxes, it's a collectable space marine action figure with 50 points of articulation, limited to 9000 , made by Bandai.

I know the community has some skewed idea about how cheap stuff should be but I figured on at least £100 for this , lead time seems excessive but I suppose this shows how far in advance stuff happens in business.

£75 if you live in the UK, £125 if you live in NZ. Last time I checked, Asia was closer to NZ than the UK is, so it can’t be due to shipping.

How can anyone justify the pricing GW imposes on us?

I really don't get the complaints about the pricing, this price isn't unusual. I can understand that the cost might be too much for someone (It is for me), but £75 is a typical price for these Bandai figures, and it actually seem to be a bit more on the cheaper side compared to some of their other figures. This isn't a case of GW overpricing something (at least, it doesn't seem to be their decision) - this is just the price range for Bandai's Figuarts stuff, they're high quality display pieces for collectors.

There's no cost feasible way to do that. A good customizer charges ~$200-300 USD for a figure of this style. Now consider they'd be doing this on an industrial scale, programming in those additional options to the paint machines, having to keep track of how many of each possible colorways for each order, etc. People are complaining about paying $100, you really think they'd be ok with paying double or triple that just to get a few more color options?

I got one, obviously it will be mostly for display but I will use it in a game against friends at least once just for fun as it seems about as tall as a Knight. Thinking Knight ally with Marines, rapid fire battle cannon roughly the same as a bolt rifle scaled up, and the knight chainsword for his load out.

I purchased one but I really think this should have been released in model form so someone can build them whatever way they want. Hopefully this will be released in a cheaper kit form one day.

Is this day 268 until delivery or does the 270 days only start from the 2nd of November? In which case it’s only 296 short days until delivery!! What fun waiting on the delivery man... the anticipation is killing me!
I wonder will Brexit be over by then? Or will we have new trade deals with China? Maybe the price will come down due to new trade tariffs. Who knows, what fun ordering stuff 300 days away. I wish I could do this everyday

That’s pretty good for the number of units. I wasn’t expecting them to go so quickly. Hopefully that means we may see some other characters now, Eldar or inquisitors would be great. I might even wait a year on an Eisenhorn or Jain Zar! Something a little more interesting than a smurf anyway.

Honestly, they'll probably milk this mold with different Chapter colors and accessories(ie. the other two types of boltrifles and the various Plasma Incinerators) before we get something non-Marine. Bandai's already produced something like 15 Gokus for the DBZ Figuarts line because they needed to do a slightly different shade of hair or skin tone to reproduce that one animation cel in that single episode.

So, we may see a Chaos Marine in 2022 and something non-Power Armor by 2030.

They did say that "select" hobby stores would get some, so we'll have to see how that works out.

So far, but given Bandai now have the tool, and a bunch of their other stuff has got different versions differing only in colour (eg Goku) if this does well (and that seem to have happened with GW selling out) we might see a version done as a different chapter in the future

The Combat Knife was shown with the prototype at the Japanese conventions it was showed at and is mentioned in the product description on GW's site.

He’s armed with a holy bolt rifle and vicious combat blade, including swappable, alternate open hands.

Don't think the larger pack is "the" pack of 5, rather a 5-pack of random figures. Which could be all 5 variants, if you're lucky...

Got me excited there for a moment (not keen on random packs)! Wonder what prices unpacked ones will go for on ebay.

EDIT: Also, as discussed earlier, the group pic does not match the 5 figures in the description; but the latter are here shown as painted versions (first time I've seen those). Primaris and Grey Knight instead of Inquisitor and Beaky.
Also also, the painted Sister looks pretty darn cute.
