Bluefin lists out its exclusives for SDCC next week

Jun 30 // Andres Cerrato
For gunpla, we will have three exclusive models that were previously only available at events in Asia. The three kits are all in 1/144 scale and are the HGUC Zeta Plus Test Type Image Color (Amuro's) for $25.00, the RG Gundam Exia Extra Finish Version for $48.00, and the HGBF Try Burning Gundam PP Clear Version for $22.00. Perhaps the biggest draw will be the S.H. Figuarts Goku Frieza Saga version. It's the Goku you've always wanted, with an actual belt and his symbols. It's almost like the standard Goku release, just now with an extra face and gi symbols! This limited edition of Goku will be available for $45.00 alongside an 18" statue of Goku from X-Plus for $65.00. Also available will be several Action Vinyls from The Loyal Subjects. There will be a set of black/white battle damaged Ninja Turtles, a crystal MMPR Pink Ranger, and a Transformers Construction set. There's one last group of releases for comic and movie fans. Iron Man will have two items, an Iron Man MkIII Magnetic Floating figure with a chrome paint job for $139.99 and a 1/12 Shotgun Iron Man Mark XL for $160.00. In case you're wondering about those prices, they're fully poseable with LEDs throughout. If you'd like another billionaire who fights crime, on hand will be Hero Cross' Hybrid Metal Figuration Batman for $80.00. Oh, there's also an S.H. Figuarts Nise (imposter) Sailor Moon, too. She looks mean and I guess that's kinda cool.  Check out the gallery for what you can buy from Bluefin this San Diego Comic Con.

SDCC 2014: Tamashii Nations

Jul 27 // Brian Szabelski
So a good place to start might be the Figuarts Injustice figures. Two were on display at SDCC: Batman and Joker, along with an additional unpainted Batman to show off where Bandai used die-cast metal on him. He'll come with his grappling gun, while Joker will have that crowbar he's holding and a pair of wind-up teeth. Two other figures for the Injustice line were teased at the booth, one of which is most definitely Harley Quinn. Since we have S.H. Figuarts Naruto, we can't just leave him without anyone to fight, right? That's where S.H. Figuarts Uchiha Sasuke comes into play, and he looks alright for an S.H. Figuarts piece. Sadly, they didn't have any of the effects parts on him, so he looks a little plain, but I'm hopeful Sasuke will be as good as S.H. Figuarts Naruto looks to be. The Year of Luigi is not dead yet, folks. Joining his brother Mario is everyone's favorite green-clothed plumber, with the two on display amid the Mario-themed S.H. Figuarts playsets. The Piranha Plant is a relatively new addition, along with the red pipes, while the green pipes with the Goomba were a previously announced set. Speaking of things that are green like Luigi is, though ... While the only S.H. Figuarts-related Power Ranger debut was the event-exclusive Armored Black Ranger, the Figuarts Zero line saw both the Red and Green Ranger models on display. Each has their signature weapon drawn -- Red Ranger with his Power Sword and Green Ranger with the superior Dragon Dagger --and this is I believe the first time we've seen the Figuarts Zero Red Ranger in the wild. I do like the precise detail on the figure, too: check out how his open hand is curved and compare it to some of the poses from the show. Or check out the level of detail on the Power Morpher; I think I could even make out the T-Rex design of Red's power coin. If there's one thing Bandai tends to do well, it's tiny detailing on their Figuarts Zero pieces. However, I have to give the edge to Green Ranger on this one. Sure, there's a lot of sentimentality playing into my choice, as I grew up a Green/White Ranger fan, but the sculpted pose for the Green Ranger is where it wins out. I've wanted a figure of Green Ranger playing his song on the Dragon Dagger for quite some time, and I don't know if I can wait until later this year for it!
