NY Toy Fair 2016: Tamashii Nations Star Wars Samurai Figures – VIDEO

Tamashii Nation’s Star Wars figures have been turning heads, giving them the Samurai treatment that the movies were initially inspired from. George Lucas has cited Akira Kurosawa as a source for the look and feel of the original trilogy, and this line of figures has combined those two worlds into one highly-articulated line of toys.

This year, the company debuted a new Boba Fett and the Emperor’s Royal Guard, along with their Darth Vader and new types of Stormtroopers joining the fray. It’s hard not to fall in love with these figures, and it’s even harder not to spend all of your paychecks on them.
