Of course she did.
Of course she did.
This works way better than I thought it would.
And like that, Pokkén Tournament is suddenly that much cooler.
The studio behind the Disaster Report games, Granzella, is teaming up with Namco Bandai for a unique spin on the series: Surviving Ultraman and kaiju fights. It’s called City Shrouded in Shadow, and I think it’s a brilliant idea. No word yet about a Japanese release date or if this will get a Western release.
I’m fairly certain nobody asked for this, but here we are: Luffy from One Piece gets turned into a lady for upcoming merch.
Would the original Star Wars trilogy have been better if George Lucas had steered closer to its samurai movie inspiration? It certainly would have looked cooler, as demonstrated by Bandai’s Tamashii Nations Meisho Movie Realization Boba Fett and Darth Vader figures.
It’s January, which means it’s already time for the merchandising market to start salivating over the next Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War. Kicking of the proceedings in the battle for whether or not Team Cap or Team Iron Man gets to rummage through your wallet and make your earnings disappear is Bandai!
Okay, so we’ve not seen much of The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma in action so far. But we know that a), she has amazing shiny armor, b) she’s played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and c) she’s got a cool cape. In Star Wars, that’s more than enough badassery to earn you an action figure that looks awesome.
Sure, here in the West we had Force Friday for the new The Force Awakens merchandise, and got some cool action figures of the movie’s bad guys. But Bandai are knocking it out of the park with their Star Wars Figuarts, and the First Order has never looked better!
This isn’t the first comparison I would make, but it looks like enough other people are doing so. On Twitter in Japan, people are comparing similar poses in Idolmaster: Cinderella Girls and Magic the Gathering.
An ex-Bandai employee’s lawsuit alleges discrimination and racism in the work place.
Well, I say that, but it basically means Bandai's latest Age of Ultron Figuarts toy can be posed saluting. There's pictures of this thing swooshing around, firing plastic laser blasts, being a badass — but a shot of a little saluting action figure is easily the best thing about it.
Guys. This is our chance. We can get Goku from Dragon Ball Z into Smash Bros....maybe!
It's only natural that the next Star Wars model kit is C-3PO, to go with the recently unveiled R2-D2 — and C-3PO's grand début in the 6-inch scale is certainly impressive. So shiny!
The Gobots may be getting their own TV show or movie in the near future, but more importantly, Bandai and Action Toys have revealed they're making new, high-end toys based on the series - and they're way better than the terrible figures we got the first time round.
Disney's annual Japanese Expo is in full swing, and now that the giant owns Marvel and Star Wars, it means we get to see a snifter of some of merchandise for the two properties created by Japanese companies. Come see Hot Toys' Star Wars figures, A Hulkbuster figure and more, oh my!
God Eater, the popular Japanese game series that's kind of like Monster Hunter, is getting an anime this summer. Here's a peek.
