SDCC 2014: Bluefin Tamashii Nations

After the Bluefin Tamashii Nations panel at Anime Expo, I decided to add the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive S.H. Figuarts Vegeta (featuring his original animation colors along with the Armored Black Ranger S.H. Figuarts) to my list of items to purchase.

Every year Bluefin Tamashii Nations has a large booth which showcases current and upcoming figures with a couple of concept figures.

The Mario S.H. Figuarts was released in May, and at Anime Expo it was announced Luigi would be joining his brother as a S.H. Figuarts figure.

At Anime Expo the Injustice S.H. Figuarts was also announced. Batman and the Joker were on display along with the additional pieces each will include.

The Sailor Moon Figuarts Zero Statue was on display, even though she is already available for purchase. She was joined by Sailor Mercury and Sailor Venus who will be released later this year.

The Sailor Scouts are out in full force including the soon-to-be-released Sailor Saturn. Recently announced Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune won’t be released till next year but they were also on display for fans to see.

The complete Power Rangers S.H. Figuarts was displayed as well. In front and center was the Armored Black Ranger which was a hot pick up for Ranger fans. The original Black Ranger, Walter Emanuel Jones, was at Comic-Con and was also doing autograph signings for fans who picked up the figure. 

That’s not all though as the Green Ranger and Red Ranger Figuarts Zero Statues were displayed as well.

I might be a little biased here, but I saved my favorite for last, the Mega Man Zero S.H. Figuarts figure, the first non-Mega Man or Mega Man X S.H. Figuarts to be released. The Mega Man Zero series for the Gameboy Advance was a very interesting game that took place after the X series and starred Zero, who had a brand new look and a very cool Z saber.
