J-TOYS New Product Presentation (Bandai)

Felt really honored to be invited by Sheng Tai Toys and Bandai for a presentation showcasing their forthcoming line-ups on Japanese Collectible Toys @ Holiday Inn Orchard. Having a update of Bandai toy movement through slide presentation and the chance to the toys first hand before their release. Some of the products been touched on included S.H.Figuarts Sailormoon, celebration its 20th anniversary which confirmation that Sailor Mercury would be next in line after Moon.

Fans of Akiba Rangers can look to its toys from the 2nd season, now that the Akiba Rangers powered up version, come with scarfs, pony tail for Akiba Blue and bums on Akiba Yellow. Also to lookout for MoyaMoya Zukyuun (evil version) with original actoress, Marucina's voice. Bandai hasn't forgotten the demand of classic Power Rangers fans with Saban's Power Ranger 20 promo, familiar rangers like the Green (Dragon in Japs context) and Red rangers from 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' will be re-introduced as S.H.Figuarts! You might want to checkout Ryu Ranger too! 

Next focus would be Saint Cloth Myth, marking its 10th anniversary. Thought the anime was longer than that. Anyway, Saint Seiya represents one of the mot popular manga and anime series of the 1980s, Amidst a sea of Saint Seiya products, Bandai sold a record-breaking 10 millions Saint Seiya Cloth figures. Anticipate the enhance version of Saint Cloth Myth since 2003 with new and enhanced base body debuts for high posability and details.

wow you are certainly going places Dennis! Man getting to see those upcoming stuff is really awesome. Is Shengtai bringing in all these directly to Singapore?

I don't like Bandai as they have ceased releasing the rest of the Thundercats characters in 8 inch and 6 inch series. If Bandai does not intend to release the full series. Please do not even get the licence initially. Now I have 2 thundercats 8 inch figures and 2 thundercats 6 inch figures. I don't know what to do with them as they don't look nice on shelves without the rest of the characters..Damn Bandai!!

What a great time you must have had and being able to go was just super.

It is always great to see some of the upcoming figures before the public does!

Bandai Japan seems quite active touching the Power Rangers series now. Usually its Bandai Hong Kong who deal with that series. There are still quite a number of fans for Power Rangers series and if Bandai make a better quality action figures of them (as in S.H.F line) then I believe the fans woulf grab it. As for Saint Seya, that is another popular series and I've seen lots of its merchandise items though I never seen the anime yet.

Long time didn't hear from you bro! I believed these will come to our shore soon than expected. Cheers!

Seems Bandai grabbed a lot of licensed and indeed fans would be disappointed if manufacturer seized or discontinued the line. They are looking in terms of profit interest though.

Indeed, feels god to attend such close door event and yes, those Seiya's Saint figures look really sparkling as a set. My budget is tight n toys lately too! See no touch. Hee!X2

>> bluedrakon
Yup! Met some bloggers too! Would be better if give some freebies. Lolz.

>> Om3ga062012
Saint Seiya figure is ever improving and I guess collecting this line alone is quite a lot already.

Due to its anniversary, Power Rangers revived and the strong base fan provided an even stronger reason for the encore. More fun going 'Go' 'Go' Power Rangers with S.H.F line...
