1/100 Scale Crew Figures From Japan

So, while looking for 1/100th scale figures a few months ago, I came across an offering on Amazon for some new crewmen from Bandai that I had never seen before.



So, I ordered them.  Delivery took a few weeks, but it was worth it.













As you can see, they're very nice figures.  I'm amazed that they're injection molded, in fact.

The seller from my Amazon link (I left a review as well) included a bit of candy, a personal note, and some Japanese trading cards.  A very nice touch.

BTW, I've visited this topic before (civilians and crewmen), in 2011.  Here's the link to that post...


And I think I'm going to treat myself this Christmas to a 1/100th Scale Macross Armor Factory from HLJ.  It comes with 2 Destroids, 30 crew, trucks, and a good background setting for photos.  Here's the link for that.

Best,

Edit to add:

Had some requests for better comparison pics, to make sure they scale well against other companies' offerings.  My apologies for the initial crappy cell phone pics ;)



Here they are, popped out of the sprue, next to the ubiquitous Rebel Minis EF Marine that most of you have.

Hope this helps.

Best,
JBR
