Since Toei are helping out with the 20th Anniversary, it's not out of the question to think they might do Zyuranger to go along with that (it was still quite popular in Japan). But they definitely wouldn't be exclusive and if the Shinkenger ones haven't been doing well, it's unlikely they'll try and bring more to the US at all (and what would happen with Tiger Ranger?). So yeah, don't hold your breath..

I'd wait and see how well Daizyujin does before even considering whether Zyuranger figures are on the way or not.

Toei doesn't make the toys or pay for them. Just because they're assisting Saban doesn't mean they're going to be able get Tamashii to make Figuarts of Zyuranger before they want to.

I won't pretend to know how it all works, but surely there's some kind of collaboration between them? For example, I'd imagine they're under some kind of deadline to get the Go-busters figuarts out sooner rather than later.

A deadline from Bandai probably, but not from Toei. Gokaiger didn't even get released until the fall.

Agreed, but nevertheless bluefin has played a role in international figure markets. They've been quite active in polling american fans where it concerns DBZ figuarts. I see no reason why the same couldn't happen for sentai as just about any incarnation of the power rangers is just as popular as DBZ here. Despite the naysaying, I'm sure zyuranger is happening at some point. Me personally, I am holding out for bioman. All in all though those awesome customs you make of zyuranger are probably giving you a bias as it concerns the rest of us owning them!

Oh I wouldn't mind if they did Zyuranger figuarts, it would make my life easier. I would much rather buy a figure than take the time to make one regardless of how good it turns out. And who said you couldn't own these zyurangers I'm making? For the right price, anyone could have a set.

Hell, I already have a set of Bioman helmets, right here, waiting to become a team of figuarts, as well. However, I am currently making my own Great Legendary Figuarts War and finishing shields so no commissions right now.

Regardless of whether you are taking commissions, I hope you keep us updated with pics if you have bioman in the works. That is one that bandai might take a bit of time getting to...but maybe not, its only the best sentai ever.

No worries I'll take some preview shots with the Bioman heads on figuarts bodies so you can see I mean business

What I'm really hoping for with the announcement of the Dekaranger figuarts, though, is Dekamaster. That's going to save me a HUGE pain in the rear of work.

Yeah, I would think dekamaster would be a given. I'm hoping we get word of a release date for those. I'm pretty much done with gokaiger except for pink and silver so I'm going to be fiending for a sentai figuarts fix soon.

Haha, I know exactly how you feel. I bought my last Sentai figuart in January, and have been buying all riders since than. As much as I love my rider figs, my Sentai shelf on my display case is starting to get lonely

There should be more pictures at a summer festival/toy expo right? Probably what they come with and maybe a hint at an exclusive.

We're due for our "WTF!? that's coming out too! take my wallet BOJ" moment

I'm seeing the Gokai boys on ebay for roughly $45 shipped (give or take a few bucks). Is that a fair price for them? If so, I too, may start getting in on this.

That's not a bad price.

I know that board member Ryuu_Ranger on here is selling them and he's in the U.S.

Might want to check with him.

Yeah, I don't want to try and cross-sell in here since that's frowned upon. BUT I have Red, Blue and Green with their respective Darin's in my thread. Just PM me if you're interested.
