Hi, Everyone!

Bandai released a teaser along with a YouTube video for their next Star Wars model kit...an original trilogy 1:5000 Star Destroyer [Lighting Model]!

At the moment, Bandai isn't giving out much information except for one still image and flashes of a finished model in their YouTube video:

  • 1:5000 scale (which works out to about 32 cm / 12.598426 inches)
  • Full lighting set up
  • Fine details
  • Will include display stand
  • Summer 2019 release

I accidentally learned about this yesterday, searching for Bandai stuff on Youtube.

I wonder what the primary market for Bandai is, if it is only Japan, or if they are selling their kits in maybe Europe or North America (or elsewhere).

With their Star Wars model kits distribution...

  • Japan / Asia - Bandai
  • North America - Bluefin Distribution offers select Bandai Star Wars model kits to retailers
  • Europe - Revell Germany will begin selling select Bandai Star Wars model kits beginning end-of-March / April 2019

Hope this helps.
