Greetings everyone! The name is Eric, and starting today, I’ll be lending a hand with reviews of newly released figures, dealing mostly in S.H. Figuarts and Figma, hope you enjoy my first here at Plastic Ronins!
Tamashii Features came and went, and boy did it feel like one hell of a mixed bag (not particularly in a good way). This year was all Kamen Riders: No Robot Damashii, No Sailor Moon, No other Anime-related Figuarts, 1 D-Arts (Raidou, so that doesn’t count), and No Figuarts Zero to show for. And yet, they did show something: A remarkable improvement on current SH Figuarts mold. Here are things to expect in the later part of this year, as well as 2014.
Summer’s here, and you know what that means. Here are the breakdowns for September’s mass release figures and October’s Tamashii Web exclusives from Bandai.
Based on parody skit of Kamen Rider that ran in Japanese variety TV show, Kamen Norida was about… Kamen Norida fighting evil organization called Jockers (parody of shockers). Not only is it surprising that this is a regular release, but the fact that it’s being released at all! I thought people would not remember Kamen Norida, but I guess someone in Bandai does. I’ll have to see how people will like this figure, as I’m sure many people are scratching their head regarding this announcement.
April 2114 release, price TBA
DISCLAIMER: APRIL FOOLS! BANDAI OR TAMASHII NATION IS IN NO WAY INVOLVED IN THIS PRANK. THIS IS SOMETHING I JUST MADE UP FOR APRIL 1st.
