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 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!

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 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!

If there’s one question that I’ve heard asked more than any other regarding the Bandai S.H.

When MegaHouse announced their acquisition of the Dragon Ball Z license during summer 2014, many collectors fell down on their knees in gratitude that larger-scale DBZ figures were finally on the way.

DBZ SH Figuarts Android 16 Battle Damaged Head

I love me some tragic heroes–the more tragic, the better. That’s why it should come as no surprise that one of my favorite characters in the Dragon Ball Z saga is none other than the fully-synthetic and tragically-doomed android, Android 16. While Android 17 and Android 18 get all the love from fans and in merchandise, Android 16 was a crucial character in the Dragon Ball Z Cell Saga. And now, he’s finally going to get his day in the sun in grandiose form–the Dragonball Z SH Figuarts Android 16 figure is now up for order!
