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, Shocker Rider, 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, Super Sentai, and Tiger & Bunny.

Considering the prices of the Ryuki figures on the aftermarket, that might not be a good idea if you're going for a complete collection.
What do you mean?

No, they've already brought it over. They had a ton of them at their booth this past weekend at A-Kon. I don't know why their system doesn't list it yet.
Odd, because when I looked him up on Amazon the other night, he was not available through them directly.

Saw this on Cyber Gundam, looks like they're doing an update to that Figuarts Collection Book they released a year or so ago:

DECADE!

Anyways, seeing Infinity there, did Bluefin ever released the other Wizard styles outside Flame?

DECADE!

No because the other three elements are all exclusives. While Bluefin has brought some web exclusives over to the U.S. before, that hasn't been the case with Kamen Riders.

I wonder if someone will make a face for SHF Ironman and War Machine.

Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger has been leaked online:



Web Exclusive in Japan, but Blue Fin release seems more then likely.

Hopefully they do the remaining Zyurangers like they've done Bouken Blue and Black and release them in 2 packs.

I looked on their twitter feed last night, and they seem to recognize the demand for female characters getting US releases. I'm hoping for Gokai Yellow, once SMF comes out (I don't have any Figuarts, but I really want her, and I can't afford the Japanese prices).

I'd guess not, considering Ptera is on her own. The others would have to be a triple pack.

If they're web exclusives, I really don't see how they plan on getting them all out this year though.

They could easily do one ranger each month at the end of the year though. Black in Sept, Pink in Oct, Blue in Nov, and Yellow in Dec.

As long as they don't go and make Yellow with a female buck, I'll be happy.
