Bandai announced some time ago that an S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Garo was in development, and it seems like the figure is finally ready for prime time with some new pre-order info having just sprung up recently, making Garo the first non-Kamen Rider character to receive the premium upgrade.
The next of Bandai’s S.H.Figuarts Ultramen was just revealed to be S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Jack courtesy Figure Oh magazine scans.
S.H.Figuarts Ultraman Jack will be released by way of mass retail, he’s expected to hit shelves in April alongside the recently announced Seihou Fang Joker with a suggested price tag of 5940 yen. As is the case with S.H.Figuarts Ultramans; a plethora of accessories will be bundled in: Ultraman Jack will have a variety of weapons: his Ultra Spark, Ultra Lance, Ultra Cross, and interchangeable effect parts.
As you may recall, an S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider W Fang Joker was in the works and we didn’t have to wait long to get more info on this bad boy.
Bandai Tamashii’s official Shinkocchou Seihou web page[/url] was just updated with release info and much clearer pictures: at the moment, Fang Joker appears to be a mass retail release he’ll be hitting the shelves among April 2018’s Tamashii Pick Up releases, priced at 6480 yen.
Mark your calenders folks, December 1st 2017 will be when Bandai holds a Tamashii Nations event, the event’s web site was just updated with a collection of logos from various series that will be receiving a major announcement at the event.
Amongst those series, the two that are relevant to us are Kamen Rider Den-O and Kamen Rider Black RX. With this year being the anniversary of Kamen Rider Den-O, the announcement of a Seihou Den-O Sword form seems likely. The announcement of an S.H.Figuarts Kotoaro Minami seems very likely as well as a possible Seihou release for Black RX himself. Of course, this is all speculative as nothing has been announcent on an offical level as of yet.
None the less, tune back with us on December 1st and we’ll bring up to date info as it becomes available. In the meantime, make the jump and join our speculation discussion!
