I know I never bothered to post the news of all the crazy new nonsense like:
• Diend Complete Form
• G Den-O
• Movie Summaries
• Exotic Headers in Epic 08
• Datas Hyper looking cool in at least ONE mode
• I’m poor
• Various other things I can’t recall right now
HOWEVER, this is a toy blog above all else (it’s also my own personal rant box and shit hole, but that’s a different story!) so I will actually put forth effort and post TOY news, so here it is!
A DBZ S.H.Figuarts release of my favorite form of my favorite character? HELL YES. I can not begin to say how excited I am for this release. Of course, Gohan here is a kid and is only about 2/3rds the size of a standard Figuart. What can Bandai do to make him fit into the established price point? MAKE HIM AWESOME. Gohan here not only comes with his really awesome cape that I love to death, but he has two hair…head…things. One for Super Saiyan, and one for Level 2. This leaves the question on which mode I would rather pose him in. I can’t answer this yet. To top it off, he also comes with four additional face pieces, and two more pairs of hands. This is absolutely fantastic.
S.H.FIGUARTS NASCA OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. Yes. Back when the initial poll was put online for who you wanted to see as a Figuart, this guy was on my list (along with Dark Kiva, and a super cool transformable AutoVajin). Nasca was one of my favorite characters in Double so far, and the fact that they’re going to give him a Figuarts release is just brilliant. He placed second in the Kamen Rider poll overall at Tamashii Features, so clearly Bandai has seen that the fan demand is strong enough! Despite the fact that he might end up being an exclusive, Nasca will live on foreverrrrr!
Oddly enough, we have seen evidence that they are making Omnimon/Omegamon (from Digimon for all you stupids) and now Nasca, but we haven’t seen prototypes for ShinkenRed and Shadowmoon, the winners of the Non-Kamen Rider and Kamen Rider categories respectively. I’m sure they’re still on the way, as Bandai has said they are working on them. Maybe they’re saving the unveiling for something bigger? Who knows?
Damn I’m excited.
