New Bandai Star Wars kits at Hobby Lobby.
Posted by Rob Gronovius on Saturday, September 02, 2017 10:17 PM

Went in with the wife and found a new display of Bandai Star Wars kits. In addition to the 1/72 scale TIE interceptor and the dual 1/72 scale X-Wing and 1/144 X-Wing, I saw several new kits I hadn't seen there before.

I bought the 1/48 scale AT-ST scout walker and saw the 1/72 scale Y-Wing. I thought I saw a few more, but only had one coupon to use.

In my local store, they were not in the model kit aisle; they were in a display in the main aisle in front of the model kit aisle, facing towards the model aisle. I did not notice them walking into the model aisle. I only saw them as I was leaving the aisle.

The AT-ST sounds just my speed... do you recall what the sticker price was?

Thanks for point that out Rob. I was there yesterday and only saw a Snowspeeder in the aisle, but I didn't see any kind of display. I suppose I'll have to look in more than just one place in the store the next time I'm there.

On my bench: AMT X-Wing (1/48ish?) rebuild

$29.99 sticker price, $17.99 after 40% coupon, $19.07 total with sales tax.

I was there yesterday picking up something else. They also had the Bandai 1:48 Snowspeeder in stock for the same price as the Scout Walker.

The Bandai Star War kits are amazing. If you haven't tried one, do so. Unfortunately for me there's no Hobby Lobby anywhere nearby.

I already have the Fine Molds 1/48 Snowspeeder so the AT-ST was the obvious choice for me.

They also had the new Revell HALO kits on hand. I know my son is interested in those, and I'm sure that many other fans of that game series would be as well.
