Angry Disney stops BANDAI Star Wars kits.

Well......

It seems Disney has decided to prevent the sale
of BANDAI Star Wars kits outside of Japan!

That's IF it's true. So far,there's a lot of cross talk on other forums about this subject, but no official word at BANDAI's site.

Personally,I don't understand why Disney wouldn't want the income that those kits would generate.

It's confirmed.

Bandai will NOT be selling Star Wars kits outside of Japan.

I agree.

But...

The Japanese can be pretty resourceful (even sneaky), when it comes to
getting their kits out to modelers

Don't give up hope,yet.

Well....

This explains a lot. Look at the (pre-order) price on the REVELL 1/72 Millennium Falcon!

That's the Fine Molds Falcon, so that's actually not a bad price.

Revell has repeatedly denied saying anything to The Mouse, so I'm guessing this is some asshat lawyer trying to justify his salary.

Default Re: Disney stops BANDAI Star Wars kits.

You can blame Disney all you want, but don't forget Bandai's hand in this...

My bet is that it was all in the license agreement with Bandai. Open-ended, world-wide licenses are extremely expensive. Particularly when you have a potential Billion Dollar property.

Disney did similar things with other properties particularly Pixar and Marvel. There are all kinds of things sold for Frozen and Marvel's recent movies that were/ are not available here in the US.

Default Re: Disney stops BANDAI Star Wars kits.

They will turn up again when they have decided who is going to pick up the license for ROTW.
Bandai have made tooling for a number of companies in the past inc Entex/Heller/MDC/Tuskuda/Academy...

But one thing is for sure - Disney are C*********S! in the 1st degree.
