    I know. That's why I said "considering marketing". If it was just for display purposes only with no potential interest in marketing it they probably wouldn't have labeled it. It doesn't mean they might not simply decide there's not enough interest or whatever. Also, of late Bandai doesn't seem to show off huge swaths of things they never intend to release anymore.

    I see what you mean and it could be a type of stealth marketing tactic since this was posted on twitter alongside this:

    I'm guessing the more pictures/likes there are on social media, then that would mean there are customers for this type of market, and if there are a right amount of customers, then there is an all liklihood of this releasing to the mass market.

    Also another type of S.H.Figuarts Base

    Hey guys, I'm new to S.H Figuarts and am interested in collecting them - more specifically Star Wars stuff. Where do you guys usually get them from?

    I buy all of mine from Japan. I prefer Nippon-Yasan because it’s usually cheapest from there but i also use Amazon Japan, CDJapan, HLJ, amiami and Anime Export, usually in that order of preference. For Tamashii Web Exclusive releases, I always use Nippon-Yasan because I don’t like dealing with proxy services and NY and AE are the only shops I mentioned that offer TWE items.

    It might’ve gotten drowned out in the hype last week, but I’m selling Captain Marvel if anyone’s interested. Comes with the box and all accessories. Just PM me!

    I usually shop at AmiAmi, but if you are looking for older releases, Mandarake is the best place to go.

    If you miss the pre-orders or don't have enough money, Manda and AmiAmi will have them after release date at a slight mark up.

    Manda will have more stock in hand and better selection.

    I'm digging those display base dioramas. Would love to get them but I have my doubts that Bandai will pull through.

    There's a couple more of those bases if you check out the #SW_BASE hashtag on Twitter. Seen a Mustafar-looking one and Tatooine so far. They're all looking pretty cool.

    That pic with Kylo and Luke looks like they're both distracted with something on the ground instead of actually fighting each other :lol

    Oof, tried to get Kamen Rider Vulcan Shooting Wolf from AmiAmi but couldn't get past the cart to check out. Luckily managed to secure a pre-order for him at CDJapan instead. Checked AmiAmi again afterwards and he was also sold-out so I guess it was a good thing I checked CDJapan.

    "Hey, look at this cool display, man."

    "This is a nice base, too bad the public will never actually own it."

    If you don’t wanna wait for a Disney+ version, then yeah I think it’s a good price. Especially considering the giant wings
