As is usual with these larger Tamashii events there’s a photo ban in place on a select group of items at Tamashii Nations 2014. For whatever reasons there’s always a selection of figures at these thing you just can’t take pictures of. Generally they’re off in their own areas of the show but eventually someone sneaks camera shots of what’s in there. For now at least there are no pictures or at least no decent ones of quite a few more things than we realized.
Before the show began Bandai aired a 30 minute livestream video in which a slideshow contained images of the Gaim & Drive displays. But thus far that’s all we had to go on. The list below confirms much of what could be made out in those images and includes several more we were unaware of. Here’s the full rundown of what IS at the show but can’t be photographed:

That so far is all the yet to be pictured items that we know are physically at the show. That’s quite a lot of stuff. Frankly the grainy images we have seen show that the Gaim & Drive displays are huge and full of figures, really great set pieces. It would seem silly for the photo ban on those sets up to last through out the show. And the two additional Metal Heroes would be welcome among the numerous other fresh reveals yesterday. We’ll keep you posted if images for anything on this list turn up from the event.
