Today’s geek culture has taken a serious hit thanks to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19. We have seen the staples in the convention world shut down with a shift to offering only a spattering of the content we’re used to, sometimes behind a paywall. Power Rangers fans will no doubt know that both Power Morphicon and RangerStop were forced to postpone their shows until next year at the earliest – there is no guarantee conventions will ever resume like they used to.
TokuNation is proud to announce our participation with The Viewing Globe – a Power Rangers Online Fan Experience for this Labor Day Weekend (September 4th through September 6th). This is a free convention created by fans of Power Rangers and tokusatsu in general.
The first guest announcements are as follows:
Check out the full press release by clicking “Read More”. Be sure to follow The Viewing Globe on all of their social media to keep up to date with all the news and information coming out for this fan experience. New guest announcements every day leading up to the show!
Not to be outdone by the reveals of the Shinkocchou Seihou Kuuga’s today, we’ve also got fresh reveals of 3 new Tamashii Nations 2020 exclusives!
Everyone’s favorite Ultra (who’s commemorating his 10th anniversary) Ultraman Zero, will be receiving an S.H. Figuarts Special Color Version release for the event. Decked out in metallic paint applications and including a specialized Tamashii stage, this release will retail for 5500 yen.
Next up is the event exclusive release from Kamen Rider Zero-One! After Shining Assault Hopper was revealed earlier this year, the question remained whether or not the infrequently seen standard Shining Hopper would be released as well. Look no further than this Tamashii Nations exclusive of S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zero-One Shining Hopper! This figure will retail for 6000 yen.
And last but not least, Tamashii Nations is reaching into the past for this special release. Commemorating their own Tamashii Nations 2014 S.I.C. exclusive as well as the even older Tamashii Festival 2011 S.H. Figuarts exclusive is the brand new S.H. Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider OOO TaMaShii Combo for Tamashii Nations 2020! This special OOO form melds the powers of Ankh’s Taka Core Medal, with Momotaro’s Imagin Medal, and the Shocker core medal to create the living logo of Tamashii Nations! This release retails for 6500 yen.
Tamashii Nations is scheduled for Q4 2020 and as usual is likely to be held in October or November. As event exclusives these 3 releases will be a bit more difficult to come by than the average web exclusive, but they are likely to be released later as lottery items via Tamashii Web as well. As official images are release we’ll be sure to share them with the community.
It’s go time! Premium Bandai’s 2020 Exclusives are live for pre-order now. The would be SDCC kick off next week has shifted online. Among the Tamashii Nations exclusives which are heavily DragonBall related, S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla is getting an Event Exclusive Color edition. The folks at Bandai were kind enough to send along an early copy, so we’ve run it for some base shots to show what it can do in hand.
Read on to check out our shots, and make sure to hit Premium Bandai to grab your copy!
