The /toy/Box Wiki with updates from ShukuenShinobi said:
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.

Hey, I recall coining the title for this one :laugh: Still no clue what we're calling the next thread.

I still need a little bit of help with getting the "first" post up-to-date. Namely, the list of currently unreleased figures. I'm looking for any SHF or SHF Zero stuff that's been shown off in conventions but without actual indication of upcoming release. Stuff that's been seen but not up for sale yet, like V3 or Zolda, or stuff not out like Ouja, need not apply. This is for the stuff we can't help but wonder is forgotten, and in particular I don't know **** about the SHF anime stuff.

I've deleted a few things already, particularly Vegeta and SS3 Goku.
From what I remember, everything is up to date to your list. It's mostly stuff from Tamashii Festival 2010 that fell into the depths of hell.

All your FACES are belongs to ME!!!
:thumbs:

@scikaiju: ... and we're not limited to just S.H. Figuarts.... Figuarts would be more proper (S.H. and Zero). :anime:

@TJ: Wouldn't ZX (Zix/6) be enought? :laugh:

Sadly we have to wait 2 years for the 6 theme rider.
Also I have been seeing some really decently priced figuarts on amazon with free shipping such as Rider 1. I think I'm gonna try relying on Blue Fin stocking Gokai Red with his bonus items somewhere on amazon.

I'm mostly worried about Precure, because I don't know a thing about the series and could probably easily mix up one character in pastel colors for another if I try to Google stuff about them.

Well, there are Super Sentai figuarts now, so we could go with something about 6th rangers.

Or we could always wait two years for the 15th Heisei KR series, chances are its name would have something to do with the number 6.

Yo Soy Henshin!
I'm curious to see if these U.S. Figuarts releases will be straight imports of the Japanese figures with new box art, or if they will be dumbed down BoA versions.

I sure hope it's the former, because I'd love to be able to spend less on future SHF releases, especially if Power Rider does indeed turn out to be a Kamen Rider adaptation.

Nice thread title. They could always just slap on a label on the back of the box regarding American SHFs.

For some odd reason, I've seen a MP-4 Optimus Prime over here in the Japanese style of packaging at a Target once, and they had about 3 of them. And I don't even live in America, but Australia, which gets the short end of the stick for just about everything.

do ya? I hear over on TFW peeps are quite envious of you guys for getting Japanese releases like the recent Jetwing Pprime :laugh:

Not quiet so envious when you realise everything over here retails for 2-3 times the price of what it is in the States. :sly:

I've only seen it at one Target once 3 years ago. The few remaining TRU over here usually have empty shelves.

And completely broke the flow we had of a numerical Rider-centric sequence :p
It would have been broken for the next thread anyways.


Anyways, back on American Figuarts discussion, I remember a couple of months ago when I was told that Sears was selling figuarts online, who knew things would escalate to this? :laugh:
