Bandai Hobby has been making Star Wars plastic model kits for a few years now.

There are lots of other Star Wars plastic models, but Bandai’s are easily the best yet, and with Bluefin distributing them in North America, they’re easier than ever to track down. Using the same technology that’s made their Gundam models so popular, Bandai’s Star Wars kits are all snap-together, and most parts are molded in their appropriate colors. This means glue and paint aren’t required to assemble a scale miniature of your favorite character of vehicle from a galaxy far, far away.

However, if you’re feeling creative, these kits are perfect for customization, whether you feel like adding a little battle damage, making a fully screen-accurate rendition of the source material, or kit-bashing them into something from the depths of the Expanded Universe. With most kits in the £20-£50 price range, they’re cheap enough that it’s not a total disaster if you screw up.
