It’s been a while since we last heard anything from the ongoing Star Wars Vintage Sofubi series from Medicom Toy, so it came with great pleasure this week to find that the fourth and fifth releases have finally dropped in the form of C3P0 and R2D2! Based on the original 1970’s figures released in Japan, these authentic reinterpretations have once again sculpted by Bear Model with colour design from Frenzy, coming in at around 9.5″ and 6.2″ respectively. Available to Japanese customers through the Medicom Toy store priced at 9,000yen ($88) each, overseas orders will unfortunately once again need to be placed through forwarding service M-World. Hit them up at m-world-service@dream.jp with any enquiries…
