May just be limited on the GW website. GW is going to want to get in on the action to maximize the amount they make from the sale but probably don't want to keep them in stock for long.

This way GW can get a load of sales that would otherwise go through Amazon or Forbidden Planet/other comic shops

I just don't understand the action figure market. How do the Bandi sales not eat into this figure and vice-versa?

Different price point attracts different customers.
Mcfarlane is mass market offering.
Bandai were billed as premium boutique product, with appropriate pricing.

One annoyance is having to apparently order from GW directly, no mention of local shops. Would incur postage costs too. I wonder how limited the GW stock for this is as well, if it'll be gone in seconds again.

Yup.

 

This is also a different scale to Bandai by the looks of it. People may well buy a *squad* of these for around the cost of Bandai.

May vary depending on your location, but Amazon in the UK have the figures up for order on there.

 

Necron

Assault Intercessor

Blank Intercessor

Yeah some UK locations have them, but none here :(

 

The Bandai prices are just silly by comparison, but then again plenty of people disagree. Good to have a cheaper option, nonetheless.

I already was interested in the unpainted Intercessor, but damn, that Sister is a must-have. Odd that they don't show her with a weapon at all?

I got my Necron and ultramarine AI yesterday. Damn near the exact same size as the Bandai, which is pretty cool.

I’m digging the sister, but if she’s 8” I’m out. These are suppose to be 1/12 scale. A normal human would be 6” tall.

It’s amazon, it may not ship until like 7 Am tomorrow and you’ll still get it by noon!

But same here, I got the two painted yesterday, but my unpainted Intercessor comes tomorrow. So we will see.

Not yet, they will be available to order from games workshop from the 10th so you can grab them then.
Other sources may have had limit stock and sold out.

If you want them from GW probably best to get the order in early on the 10th as this may be another item that sells out in 15 min or less

Didn't see on amazon in Europe yet.

I think they will reveal it later, I hope for a flamthrower but her hands suggests a weapon for sure.

Not that I don’t believe you, because that makes sense with her being from the trailer too... but link or pics?

I just got mine delivered from Amazon(both Space Marine and Necron). They’re really great for the price! I have the Bandai one too, McFarlane is bigger, but paint job is very basic no shading or battle damage, and much more toy like. Still $20, is really great, especially if you plan to paint a grey one. If you have kids and want them to play with a cool toy? Get both!


Oh also, way better quality than McFarlane Halo figures, from the looks in regards to durability and not having pieces falling off.

Sorry for multiple edits, but update the Necron has some decent battle damage/wear and tear. I know some will complain on paint job, but to sound like a broken record, damn cool for $20 considering $100 for the other. I’m personally not disappointed and will buy more.

So the McFarlane is bigger than the Bandai?! Wow, I don’t need another blue dust magnet but if a McFarlane Skitarii comes along...

The sister looks great but would have liked a helmetless option. Still, can't complain about the price.
