The book stores have been in decline for the past several years. In 2011 Borders went bankrupt and Barnes and Noble was losing 10’s of millions of dollars each quarter, but Barnes and Noble has been able to adapt. One way of adapting is the emergence of selling tabletop games, toys and collectibles.
It was announced by Kotobukiya that they will be offering two new Star Wars figures and will only be available through Barnes and Noble.The two new statues for their Star Wars line are the Utapau Clone Trooper ARTFX and the TC-14 ARTFX. The TC-14 droid is simply a repaint of C3PO, but in an amazing Silver. As for the Utapau Trooper He’ll have interchangeable legs and arms so you can change the pose he’s in and his paint job is a Yellowish/Orange and white.
Both statues will be available this November exclusively from Barnes and Noble and will come with black magnetic bases to be optionally be displayed on. Both Figures will be in the 1/10 scale.
