The ships usually require some paint to look really good, however, the figure model kits usually don’t need any paint, or at least paint is optional. Especially the Stormtrooper may be an option for Black Series troop builders, the Bandai sculpts are usually very crisp, very clean and articulation is also excellent. And even though the figures are quite lightweight they can keep a pose. The Bandai General Grievous model kit, for example, is vastly superior to the Hasbro version. The figures scale perfectly with the Black Series.
You can pre-order the sets from all the usual etailers! You can also go to the official Bluefin website for more info. At the time this article is posted the new kits are not yet listed on the official Bluefin website, however.
