If there’s one line I collect for no discernable reason, it’s definitely SH Figuarts Kamen Riders. I’ve never seen any of the series and know next to nothing about the characters, but for some reason I really love the Showa Era designs, especially with the amazing articulation of a Figuarts.
While convention season is pretty much over stateside, Japan had a big one up its sleeve with Tamashii Nations 2012! Bandai of Japan has been garnering a large portion of my collecting interest over the last couple years, and the 2013 reveals make it blatantly apparent that my wallet doesn't stand a chance next year.
With my glut of Transformers reviews over, I’m going back to take a look at a few imports that I passed over. Today’s figure was an impulse buy. I was itching to spend some money, so I took a chance on a couple of figures.
Tamashii Features is Bandai’s own personal toy show, showcasing the new projects and properties that they will be releasing in the following year. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, took some time to check out all that Bandai had to offer. All I can say is my wallet was definitely not ready for the Power Ranger surge!
