So its only Red and Gold at TRU so far? No rumblings on if any of the others will show up in the US yet?

Bluefin won't allow the rest to come because they're Tamashii webstore exclusives. Since Toys R Us isn't a Tamashii webstore, then the chances are, no, we won't get the rest.

An exclusive should stay exclusive.

Otherwise it defeats the purpose of being exclusive in the first place if everyone can get it at Walmart or TRU.

The only possible way for the others to come to the US is to put them on a US Webstore and make them the same price and make them only available on that site. But we know it won't happen.

The only webstore that they would/could be allowed to be sold on is a Tamashii webstore, as mentioned numerous time the last 2-3 pages. And since there is no Tamashii online shop here in the U.S. it's not gonna happen.

They will not become a TRU or Amazon exclusive figures. People wanted Figuarts here in the U.S. and we got them. Not the whole team but we have them non the less.

Now if Gokaiger is adapted in the U.S. there is probably a chance that we'll see Red, Blue, Green, & Silver in stores, but no Pink or Yellow since they are exclusive.

But that's a completely different figure from the one original one released. Same character, new figure.

If the TRU Figuarts become a success Stateside, is there any reason why there couldn't be a Tamashii web store opened for the US?

Bluefin's not doing the distribution on the Shinkenger SHFs in the US. That would be Bandai of America's doing. And I believe it's more BoJ's collector's division that are giving the nix on allowing web exclusives in stores. I'm sure if Bluefin had the go ahead to actually sell some web exclusives, they would jump on the chance to earn more money. The only exception to this would be the Dragonball SHFs, which are now being made specifically for the North American market in place of the Japanese, which is why they're web exclusive for Japan.

After seeing your guys' suggestions, I thought of this



ShinkenRed: I got it from the Act 1 Op when Takeru finishes the Nanashi
ShinkenBlue: I made up the pose, but I got the kneeling part from andr0s81

Alright everybody, Vange1us was at NYCC and spoke with one of the Tamashii Reps and got the scoop on the whole Shinkenger Figuarts coming to TRU deal, among other things that i see being asked a lot, so please do yourself a favor and sit through the video so you can understand how Bluefin is handling releases for the US:

Very nice, i had my Shinken Red displayed in that pose for a long time until Blue and Green showed up. I love the pose you've got going for blue with the Water Arrow, very nice

Just look at the bite side, we get DBZ figuarts exclusivity for the U.S market. Japanese dbz fans are so pissed right now.

Looked on eBay for prices on these things. Cannot believe how much they want for one. Women red is at 54 plus shipping. Would there be anywhere that I could pick one up for a bit cheaper than that? Looks like a beautiful figure.

Thanks

Perhaps a middleman? I'd say she will end up being the most expensive for the time being.

I wish they'd never started making Sentai Figuarts. This thread has become a chore to read through.
