While we were keeping an eye trained on the events of Stan Lee’s Comikazi, toy collectors in Japan were watching for news coming out of Bandai’s much anticipated Tamashii Nations show. We here at IAT were lucky enough to have Robert Baldwin once again on the front line, camera in hand and bringing us the latest news as to what we can look forward to from Bandai of Japan in the following months.
Thanks again, Robert! The hard work is greatly appreciated.
November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd were the three days set for Bandai’s annual Tamashii Nation event.
At this time last year, due to the fact that I was in Florida, chin-deep in drugs (working at a pharmaceuticals company), I could not attend. I had asked a friend to represent me, but he couldn’t get the pictures to me until January – and the quality was marginal at best. Needless to say, I will not be asking him to represent me at any toy events in the future.
I don’t know if the lack of coverage last year had something to do with it, or if my replacement had caused a problem, but Bandai did not send me an invitation for their pre-opening of Tamashii Nation 2013. However, I wasn’t about to let the lack of a mere invitation keep me from setting my sites on Bandai’s newest action figures – before the general public.
Not all of the pictures are up to standard, but I hope everybody enjoys them.
