Tamashii Nations along with Bluefin are finally releasing Marvel S.H. Figuarts in the United States. In order to differentiate themselves from existing license holders (we assume), each piece will be coming with larger extras, environment pieces and the like. The first of these is the Iron Man 2 Mark 6 suit with a Hall of Armor display. This was originally a Tamashii Web exclusive in Japan, and the figure itself has been significantly redone since it’s first release (see here). It will be dropping soon in the States at roughly 120 USD. We’ve got our copy in hand so read on to check out over 60 HD images and some quick thoughts!

During our visit to the Tamashii Nations 10th Anniversary World Tour last month, we got a chance to see a new Mega Man X figure coming from Tamashii Nations. This highly detailed and fully articulated figure will be part of the Chogokin Giga Armor Series, which looks to be a (at least spiritual) follow up to the popular Mega Armor Series of Mega Man figures that Bandai once produced.
Tamashii Nations has listed the figure as part of their October 2017 pick up, which gives us a great new official photo of the figure. We’re still awaiting details on scale, pricing, and included accessories. We’ll update when pre-orders go live or more details are released.

Bandai Tamashii Nations is ever expanding the S.H. Figuarts reach, and that continues today with an expansion of their DC Comics line up. First it was Injustice, then Suicide Squad and now they’re going back to tackle Nolan’s The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Batman is respected as a movie and the suit is one of most revered to date – functional, streamlined and damn cool looking. S.H. Figuarts is taking a crack at it now after many have been on market from other companies; but that gives them the ability to really focus in and get it right. And, based on our early in-hand time with it, they have. The figure is one of the best Batman offerings to date, in any form. It has a full range of articulation, detailed sculpt head to toe, complex paint and weathering even on a mostly black palette. Extra hands, head, and two weapons round the release out.
We’ve handled it and shot over 95 HD images of the final production version, case fresh! It’s due out in Japan in June, soon after via Bluefin Brands in the United States, so don’t pay those import prices! Read on to check some additional thoughts and all the images!
