"In September 2017, Games Workshop released a series of 12 + 1 Space Marine Heroes, randomly packaged in sealed blind boxes, exclusive to the Japanese hobby market. All models feature unique dynamic poses, sculpted bases, and a bare-headed and helmeted head option. The series is already sold out in Japanese online stores, and is only available on ebay through third-party sellers for the rest of the world. Check out if the models are worth the hassle…"

Very interesting.

Will pre paints be next?

I think this type of thing is more popular in Japan, but it will be interesting to see what happens if released elsewhere.

I assume they may well be cheaper than buying a specific hero at the moment as the production allows them to sell the same amount of all the figures with rare ones as they desire.

Interesting but not my thing. While I have always defended Games Workshops figure modeling I am not the least interested in their space marines or the 40K universe in general.

It's interesting how the reviewer came to the same conclusion as I did – that these are probably the last non Primaris Space Marine models (not that I even acknowledge the existence of Primaris in my head-canon!).

I'd buy them for that alone, even if I wasn't an Ultramarines player.

Glad you like them my friends!. (smile)
