They do that to gauge market potential from both distributors and customers. I think some stuff that shows up doesn't even end up being sold later, or gets heavily retooled.

I would love if all the effect pieces they use for these displays end up getting sold later, but that hardly ever happens. Probably the biggest tragedy of these shows.

But I'm also incredibly excited for the Gridman (superhuman samurai cyber squad) figurarts.
Gridman is not a Figuarts. He's an Ultra Act figure.

I'm really stoked about the new figures, especially Mele and Rio. Those two have been at the top of my want list since figuarts started. Hope we get them soon enough. I'm really surprised to see Boukenger and Jetman too. All the figures and pics are looking incredible.

Dekaranger's looking more and more impressive now, although Dekablue's coloring seems off. The blue should be darker. I was hoping we'd get pics of Dekabreak, Master and Swan as well.

Since the Akibaranger are getting anime human heads, I wonder if we'll see the same for the other sentai teams as well.

I would be really shocked if the other figures came with human anime heads, more than likely it's probably just going to stay with the akibarangers.

yeah i realized that minutes after posting, but the conversation had already moved on so I didn't bother editing it. Still pretty awesome either way though.

Not to make this into a complaint, but why show us something that wont be available for another one to two years? That's torture and a tease.
It's based off the fact we saw a lot of Kamen Rider prototypes years back, some of which are only just being released now.. However, that ignores the fact we already had a steady stream of Kamen Rider's being released, unlike the Sentai's and we only just saw Deka Red as a prototype a few months ago, and he's already getting a release in June. There's no reason to assume every one of these new figures shown will be years away, the Dekarangers and Gobusters aren't going to last us until 2014.

I think I figured out why i'm not feeling the Boukenger figuarts as of yet; they've got the bicep swivel, which'll ruin the look of their costume arms.
I don't know why they didn't give Akaranger one, when he doesn't have any design on his arms, really. Ditto for Dekaranger.

Either way, getting terribly excited about these - if only for the possibility of a Dekamaster!

So what's the difference between the bicep swivel that the Gokaigers have and what the Boukengers have?

The swivel didn't "ruin" the look of the Gokaigers.

Personally, I feel that if the white section of the arms are split when you twist the lower section of upper arm, it'll damage the aesthetics. The Gokaigers didn't have different coloured sections to worry about.
Neither do Akaranger or the Dekarangers either, which is why i'm surprised the joints are not being used on them, if they're to increase poseability.

Obviously, it'll be difficult anyways to maintain any element of suit design unbroken (take the Shinkenger's chest robes being split for the torso joint).
Perhaps it's needed for their weapons or something.

I have come to a depressing conclusion that I will only buy the reds, and then any other rangers that I am particularly fond of. However, there will be a few teams that I will get all of them from. These are just so expensive and the amount that are limited kills the wallet.

So I will be getting Dekared and BoukenRed. All the others are REAL nice, but too much money...

Plenty of time to start saving those pennies. They'll be around for a long time as soon as they're released, no need to rush.

I was a little sad when I sold all of my Super Human Samurai Syber Squad figures about a year or so ago, but holy crap Figuarts Gridman.....love at first sight! And that Rio looks amazing. I can't wait for these figures I'm so happy.
