METAL BUILD Red Astray Gundam Photos & Order Info!

Metal Build Bandai Red Astray Gundam Up for Order

Ordinarily, the most ridiculously popular and merchandised Gundams are the “main” Gundams that belong to the main hero of a Gundam anime series. But there’s a major exception to this rule, and it’s a suit that’s only seen in a supporting role in the Gundam SEED anime!

It’s one of the most popular Gundams ever, and it’s getting the highest-end treatment from Bandai: the METAL BUILD Red Astray Gundam is now available for order! But order soon, because it is selling out fast!

Sailor Moon SH Figuarts Black Lady Revealed & Photos!

Black Lady Figuarts Figure Revealed

I admit it: I tried my absolute hardest not to, but like everyone else in the anime-viewing world, I hate Chibiusa (AKA Sailor Chibi). But while I wanted to choke Chibiusa every time she came onscreen, I was shocked by how engaging her evil alter-ego, Black Lady, was.

I always wanted a Black Lady action figure–and now it looks like I may get the chance! At Tamashii Nation 2015, the Sailor Moon SH Figuarts Black Lady figure was revealed!

Super Saiyan Gotenks Figuarts Zero Figure Up for Order!

Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks Figuarts Zero Dragon Ball Z Figure

There’s absolutely no doubt about it: Dragon Ball Z is the hottest thing in Bandai’s anime collectibles repertoire in 2015. But while collectors have been subjected to a near-endless parade of releases of Goku and Vegeta of late, there was still one major Saiyan (or should I say “Saiyans”?) character left to mine.

We’ll have to wait a bit longer for an SH Figuarts version, but the Dragon Ball Z Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks Figuarts Zero figure is now up for order!

SH Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Beerus Figure Revealed!

Lord Beerus Figuarts Dragonball Z Figure Bandai 2015

If there’s one character that epitomizes the new era of Dragon Ball Z anime more than other, it is definitely the God of Destruction, Beerus! Lord Beerus handily defeated Goku in the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie, and appears in both DBZ Resurrection F and the upcoming Dragon Ball Super anime.

And now, he’s set to make his most appearance of all: Bandai Japan has revealed a super-articulated Dragon Ball Z SH Figuarts Beerus figure!

X-Plus Mega Man X Gigantic Series 15″ Figure Up for Order!

X-Plus Gigantic Series Megaman X Figure Revealed Up for Order

Big things are coming out in Japan this year–and by “big”, I mean “Gigantic”! Although Japanese figures have traditionally kept to the sixth scale and smaller, X-Plus has had a huge (no pun intended) hit on their hands with their Gigantic Series figures line of quarter scale statues. And after soliciting the first Mega Man Gigantic Series figure for release this winter, they’re moving right along with the series–with the sure-to-be immensely popular Gigantic Series Mega Man X figure now up for order!

Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Fumina Figure Up for Order!

MegaHouse Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Statue July 2015

There’s a lot to love about the Gundam Build Fighter Try anime series (which is currently nearing its end), but among my favorite aspects of the show is the fact that there is a genuine female Gundam pilot protagonist. Hoshino Fumina is a breath of fresh air in the Gundam universe, and I’ve been looking forward to a toy of her for a while.

And now, the time has come: the 1/10 Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Fumina figure is now up for order!

New York Toy Fair 2015: SH Figuarts Sailor Moon Photos!

2015 Toy Fair Bandai Tamashii Nations Booth S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon Display

Last weekend I attended the New York Toy Fair 2015, my second-ever trip to the show. I wasn’t expecting Bandai Tamashii Nations to bring much new stuff that hadn’t been seen before to the event, but I was excited to see what Bandai had brought along nonetheless.

And while none of the Bandai SH Figuarts Sailor Moon figures hadn’t been seen before, this was the first time several of them had been shown publicly in the United States…

Sailor Moon SH Figuarts Chibi Moon Figure Up for Order!

Sailor Moon Chibi Moon Figuarts Figure Bandai 2015

All discussion of the show’s quality aside (and we could definitely have some heated discussions about its quality), there’s no contesting that the Sailor Moon Crystal anime is coming out a glacial pace of just two episodes per month. But over six months after the debut of the series, the second arc of Sailor Moon Crystal is about to begin–and we’ll soon be seeing the sometimes-loved Sailor Chibi Moon, Chibiusa, in the anime! Bandai Tamashii Nations is ready to celebrate by expanding the best-selling S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon line–the SH Figuarts Chibi Moon figure is now up for order!

DBZ Tamashii Buddies Broly & Frieza Figures Up for Order!

Tamashii Buddies Super Saiyan Broly Figure

When it comes to Dragon Ball Z toys, it appears that Bandai Tamashii Nations can do no wrong. Many fans were skeptical of the chibi stylized Dragonball Z Tamashii Buddies figures, but the first series of DBZ Tamashii Buddies has been a surprisingly hot seller, with many stores already selling out of some characters. Bandai must be pleased–and also confident–because Dragon Ball Z Tamashii Buddies Broly and Frieza figures have now been put up for order!
