If I had to pick a figure to get from Visions, the Ronin would be my choice.
Same. Or maybe a Ronin & Droid 2-pack.

These guys are a weird choice, but they definitely do embody the stereotypical anime aesthetic. The episode was one of my least favorite, but I might be tempted to get them if the price is reasonable.

Thanks. At $85 apiece, I think I’m going to pass.

Weird choice, weird that Bandai is allowed to sell these 1:12 scale shf in the US. I can only assume Hasbro had not much interest in the Visions license so let Bandai go ahead with these.
However they’re still above the $80 threshold that Hasbro stipulates for the Marvel shf so as to not compete.

Whatever the case, they definitely don’t look worth $85.

They really need some better pictures and an official announcement of some kind. The brother specifically looks very plain.

It’s so weird that these just kinda popped up at target with no official announcements from Tamashii Nations. Barely any pictures and one of the text in the descriptions isn’t even correct. I’m guessing these aren’t supposed to go up yet and Target screwed up?

Oof, $85 is a bit high. And Target doesn't have the best track record for preorders.

I think I'll wait to see more promo pics to get a sense of accessories etc before ordering. I can't imagine these selling out that fast, but who knows.

They were announced on starwars.com as part of the Bring Home the Bounty campaign , along with a Ronin and Droid Funko. I imagine Tamashii will have an announcement up tomorrow.

Shoulda been the Ronin who got a Figuarts or The Ninth Jedi crew.

Completely agree. Maybe they'll continue this line like they did with the Movie Realization line.

As a rule, I don't buy Star Wars figures outside of live action, but a Ronin and Droid would be really tempting. The style, animation, and writing in that episode easily made it my favorite in the series.

Have fun, all!

Ah I see. Sorry, Target. You didn’t screw up. Image

That’s still so weird to see SHF SW being promoted in US AND sold by Target.

I'm a HUGE Studio Trigger fan, but even I was kind of bored by this short. I, too, would have preferred a Ronin instead.

It's funny that not even SHFs can escape Target exclusivity now.
