The Brand New, All Encompassing Bandai Figuarts Toy Thread

Welcome to the all new Bandai 'Arts thread. Feel free to discuss, post photos & reviews of anything that has to do with S.H. Figuarts, D-Arts, or Monster Arts.

I will keep this post, as well as the subsequent posts updated with the appropriate information such as new images, reveals from shows, etc.

PLEASE REFERENCE THE FIRST FEW POSTS BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS.

Quote:
Before Figuarts, there was Souchaku Henshin. Souchaku Henshin was a line of articulated Kamen Rider toys that featured die cast attachable armor. Somewhere along the way, Souchaku Henshin came to the point where it was very articulated and essentially, became the flagship figures of the TV series. The attachable armor pretty much became a bonus, and was simplified greatly as time went on.

So, someone at Bandai headquarters apparently decided they couldn't get enough of this crazy articulation and decided that they had to have more. Screw the attachable armors. And that's how the Figuarts line was born. Top notch styling that remain close to their televised/silver screen counterparts (1:12 scale, these dudes stand at 15 cm tall, roughly) with articulation (35 movable points!) and durability (die cast feet with metal pins!) that never compromises. The line premiered with Masked Rider The NEXT, churning out righteously awesome figures of Rider 1, Rider 2, and V3 all in NEXT-y goodness. While The NEXT created some extremely divided opinions, these figures have received near-universal acclaim from casual and hardcore fans.

At first, S.H. Figuarts mostly concentrated on the Kamen Rider franchise, with the odd anomaly now and then like Domon and Zero. But recently, Bandai seems to be committed to branching out the line into other franchises, such as Dragonball, Pretty Cure, One Piece, and Super Sentai.

Sorry...I didn't know you were continuing. I broke the thread. Surely a powerful person can rearrange some posts, right?

Haha, no worries. I figured a mod would be able to fix it somehow.

All the S.H. Figuarts lines will be in the first post (Sentai, DBZ, Cure, Tiger & Bunny) I just haven't got that part uploaded yet. Be patient and just bear with me. I'll make adjustments as needed for the sections.

Only problem is my witty (but true) first post is gone into history.

So... SHF BeetBuster was just an elaborate ruse in the previous thread?

Along with everything else on that supposed "sighting list."

Is Go-Busters really so unpopular that the other team members won't get Figuarts?* Could J be doomed to the same fate as the Horoscopes- an inarticulate store-exlusive Zero?



*OK, that's very unlikely but the lack of support for the series is worrysome.

I hope not, I really want BeetBuster, and not as an exclusive either.
