We’ve known about the Bandai Primaris Marine for a while, and have seen some different pics here and there with a non-painted version showing a few of its articulations.

Plus, we’ve just recently seen the McFarlane Primaris previewed at the 2020 Toy Fair, which looks to be a slightly different sculpt altogether.

Any way you slice it, from Funko POP! to action figures and everything in between, it’s never been easier to collect Space Marines!

Scott Rubin posted up these images of the new figures from the toy show on our Facebook Group.

Updates! Wanted to get the pics up ASAP. These are prototypes, finals will be articulated. Not a lot, that’s what Bandai is for.
Will be both painted and unpainted versions.
There will be more Marines, and NON SPACE MARINE figures. They’re even looking at doing actual characters if the generic soldier type figures sell.

This project is still a work in progress, however, it seems like the much more affordable and broader option to choose from in the long run. Especially for fans that don’t play or even like Space Marines as they mentioned above that they would be expanding into non-Marine figures as well.

Bandai Space Marine Action Figure $100

But at $100, this is five times more expensive than the McFarlane Intercessor from above. On that note, there’s definitely something to be said about the overall quality of the Bandai Marine.

With its different posing positions as well as the level of detail in the sculpt and painting, it makes complete sense that it would be more expensive.

Thanks once again to Scott Rubin on our Facebook Hobby Group, here are some close-up shots of the Bandai Marine as well as its packaging. Now we can get a better look at it all!

bandai intercessor 1Don’t worry about the awkward posing on the model. You can adjust him to however you want. You can even drop the weapons from his hands needed. But looking at the detail, it’s got a much more crisp sculpting job as well as painting quality compared to the McFarlane mini. And rightfully so for something that is five-times the cost.

bandai intercessor 2Similar to when all the pre-painted Funko POP! minis released and we saw people painting over them in their own colors, we’re sure we’ll be seeing the same thing happen for this guy as well. Let’s face it. Not everyone wants to be an Ultramarine.

Look for the McFarlane Space Marine Action Figure to hit stores this fall. Pre-orders of the Bandai Space Marine are officially over, but you may be able to snag one somewhere online like eBay once they actually get released.

As for right now, what would you like to see McFarlane toys turn into a figure from the 40k universe next? Will you be repainting your Bandai Intercessor?
