Star Wars Altaya Miniatures Archives
Imperial Era Ships
In 2021, Altaya started a new line of diecast models, similar to the older De Agostini line. Primarily sold in France as a subscription, this new Star Wars Altaya Miniatures line is quite a bit larger. Fortunately, I have a buddy who subscribed to the line for me and sends the models to the US for me. They come in simple packaging, but also include magazines (in French) detailing the ships.
Below, I describe the Altaya ships by issue number. Some are better than others, while some leave a little to be desired. Note: I chose NOT to collect the Millennium Falcon and Death Star.
Luckily, I'm happy with Star Wars Altaya line, as they are doing some ships never before released. If you have any questions about the line, feel free to message me. We also regularly discuss these on the Rebelscum forums.
If you are curious about their scales or sizes, that information is on the Altaya Scale List.
11 – AT-ST
I'd take the Bandai kit over this one. Detail isn't bad, but the pose looks like it's about to fall over. However, it does show the pivoting feet that I talk about.
13 – Tantive IV
The Blockade Runner is alright. It's not much bigger than the Titanium. You do get the individual barrels for the main turbolasers, but no the smaller side cannons.
