Earlier this month, the 2013 Japan Expo took place in Paris (yes, the Japan Expo is held in France), where Square-Enix unexpectedly unveiled not one, but two new Assassin’s Creed Play Arts Kai figures! Considering that previously Square-Enix had only produced one Play Arts Assassin’s Creed II figure years ago, this was a pretty big deal. We knew we’d be getting our first stateside look at the Play Arts Kai Assassin’s Creed Connor and Edward Kenway figures at San Diego Comic Con 2013 last week, and we weren’t disappointed: these new Square-Enix Assassin’s Creed figures are gorgeous…Continue Reading→
Just like his shocking first appearance in the Dragon Ball manga and Dragon Ball Z anime, an all-new Super Saiyan Trunks figure has unexpectedly entered the fray! I wasn’t certain Bandai was going to continue their Figuarts Zero Dragonball Z figure line, but they stunned everyone when the Figuarts Zero Trunks (Super Saiyan) figure showed up at San Diego Comic Con 2013! The Super-Saiyan Trunks Figuarts Zero figure blasts into collections in December 2013, and he’s now up for order!Continue Reading→
San Diego Comic Con is a major event for all toy, comic book, and entertainment companies each year, so I had high hopes that Bandai Tamashii Nations would bring their ‘A’-game to the show this year. Turns out I set my sights too low–Bandai brought their ‘A+’-game instead!
We didn’t see just one or two of the remaining SH Figuarts Mighty Morphin Power Rangers at the mecca–we saw them all! Including not one, but two different S.H. Figuarts Yellow Rangers…Continue Reading→
Preview Night has officially started at San Diego Comic Con 2013! The displays are up, and the millions upon millions of photos have started to file in from con-goers! The display for the Bandai S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z figures is pretty packed, and there’s three new figures in the display for collectors at home to oogle: Figuarts Zero Trunks, SH Figuarts Android 17 and a GIGANTIC S.H. Shenron Dragon!Continue Reading→
When I opened this site one of the first things I posted was the preview photos of the Megaman D-Arts Bass & Treble figures. Everything has come full circle now, as we don’t have to just look at pictures of Bass & Treble anymore–because the figures have actually been released! Shipping to homes overseas now, it’s the Japanese Rockman D-Arts Forte & Gospel figures (better known in the United States as “Bass & Treble”)!Continue Reading→
While many D-Arts Mega Man X collectors were pining away for the reissue of the regular Mega Man X D-Arts figure, the D-Arts Zero (Type 2) figure quietly sold out and then became insanely expensively on the aftermarket. That left a lot of collectors sad and sword-wielding Zero-less. But fear not, Mega Man fans! The kind-hearted folks at Bandai have something in store that’s going to be a big hit both with collectors who already have the original Type 2 Zero D-Arts action figure and those who aren’t that lucky–the just-announced D-Arts Black Zero figure!Continue Reading→
