Beautifully detailed, hyper-accurate models

The detail on the vehicles is incredibly intricate, and the best part is you don’t need a degree in engineering to assemble them. Bandai Hobby makes their high-quality model kits by blending complex detail that hardcore collectors like, with construction requirements that model builders of all skill levels can assemble.

None of these kits require any glue, and the character models are poseable. Sprue Cutters or similar clippers are recommended for assembly, but are sold separately.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.
