NYCC 2015: Bandai S.H. Figuarts TMNT, DragonBall Z, Sailor Moon and More

NYCC 2015 - Bandai Tamashii Nations Bluefin (1 of 31)

The Bluefin booth is always a favorite stop due to its wide variety of Bandai’s Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts licenses.

If you are at the show and purchase either exclusive at the Bluefin booth at #3545, you’ll get a 1Up Mushroom from their Super Mario line as a gift while supplies last.
