Bandai S.H. Figuarts Effects Coming in 2014

The Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA Facebook page has always got interesting pics, but these effects pieces look pretty interesting. I’ve known that Bandai has sold effects parts, like muzzle and jet blasts, for its Gundam figures, but these are the first items I’ve seen that look like they’re made for their S.H. Figuarts lines. They’ll look like they’d work great for the DragonBall Z figures, for example.

Hard to read the little signs, but it looks like they’ll be out early next year and retail for about $20 in Japan. I’d probably buy a few if they were about half that price. What about you?

If I had a million dollars, I’d probably buy everything that was in the Bluefin booth showcasing Bandai’s action figure offerings. They produce such awesome toys, in particular with the S.H. FiguArts and MonsterArts lines – Godzilla, DragonBall Z, Power Rangers, Sailor Moon… and now Aliens vs. Predator, and even Batman?!

Pre-Order the Bandai S.H. Figuarts DragonBall Z Krillin

SH Figuarts DBZ Krillin 1

I love the SH Figuarts DragonBall Z line from Bandai, but my wallet is glad they don’t release figures more often. I’m going to have to pick up the latest figure they’ve announced – Kuririn aka Krillin. He comes with 3 different facial expressions, 6 sets of hands, and his Destructo Disc.

You can pre-order the SH Figuarts Krillin from Amazon and BigBadToyStore. He’s listed for $39.99 at both and is due in November.
