A shame these don't do well in America. I'd be all over a Samurai Mega Mode one.

I'm pretty sure they are doing alright through Bluefin since they're still coming, it's the Shinken ones that Bandai decided to try and sell at ToysR'Us that are shelf warming...

I havent seen any of the Shinkenger figuarts in TRU shelf warming. All the times I went to TRU I saw about a dozen ShinkenReds and a week later they were gone. The only time I saw them shelf warming was in TRU in Times Square, most likely because of the hiked up prices.

You're probably right on that, Megasentai.

That is a cool idea, Sonic-Ranger. I mainly thought of this: http://supersentaiimages.blogspot.co...abaranger.html
Scroll down until you go past a pic of Top-Galer and you'll see Abare-Killer's Abare Mode.

To be honest, I'll probably go nuts for an Abare-Killer Figuart. Quoting Mr.ILT: “I think when they release Abarangers, they'd have effect parts for the Abare Mode.”

I can see that happening. I can imagine that the AbaRangers would have some peg holes or something to attach the enlarged diamonds onto their suits/or in Abare-Killer’s case the spikes on his suit. For some reason, I can also see Abare-Killer’s shield being able to be removable so we can attach the more spiked-up shield much like Eternal’s cape and Skull’s scarf.

Just because they move quickly in one or more spots doesn't mean they don't elsewhere. But the ones that haven't moved are apparently all people need to convince themselves and try to convince others that Figuarts have failed in the US...

oh TRU times square is shelf warming cause 1 they ordered too many to begin with and most of the time its only red sitting there.the TRU near me has stopped selling the figuarts after the new wave came out but the times square one will have theirs for awhile heck might even see these suckers go on sale in the commin months

Abare Mode would likely be separate arms altogether knowing Figuarts. They would never put that many peg holes in the arms, and it would be confusing to find where each spike went. SWAT Mode and AbareMax would have to be different figures entirely, just like the different Kamen Rider forms. Same with the other super modes.

Also, Gekiranger figuarts would not be difficult. It's not like you need a belt to have a waist joint >.>

Ah. I didn't think about that. AbareMax would look cool as a Figuart.

Keep in mind this is a tiny picture of the figure shot in a studio. I'd wait for a hands on review to see what they're really like

-Joint problems?
-Paint issues
- Pieces falling off

Those are the common things I read on these boards

I understand that but this isn't a preview figure shot, I'm only talking about the general overall look. The figures at Tamashii Nations were painted prototypes and you could see the colors flaking off the base white bodies on all three Dekarangers. This one looks like a production figure or at the very least a production prototype.

DekaRed looks amazing. I'm definitely starting to save up in order to get him as soon as he's out. I probably won't have enough money to get the two new Greeed, which is a shame really, as each of them comes with an interesting accessory (purple Tatoba head and Dr. Maki's doll). I am pre-ordering HyperShinkenRed however, and I also have GoseiKnight, Fourze Rocket States, Birth Prototype, Juuzo and Super Tatoba pre-ordered.

Argh, I don't mind skipping certain figuarts when I have to, but now there's just too many excellent ones that are being released during the upcoming months!

I was hoping Purple Eyed Tatoba would have been a rerelease like Decade Violent Emotion, I am bummed. I guess I'll grab normal Tatoba soon then...

Sigh. Cool as that Dekared is, I'll stick with my SPD Red Ranger. I know, blasphemy, but I see no point in blowing my sentai item budget on the figuart versions when I've got perfectly servicable BOA versions already.

Now, if they do DekaSwan or DekaBright... SO there.

I'll be getting S.H.Figuarts DekaBreak for sure. It's always annoyed me how the BoA figure can't be posed so that he's using his Brace Throttle.
