Premium Bandai US Store
Not super new, but hot and available
Bandai Tamashii Nations have revealed the next S.H. MonsterArts from the Godzilla Singular Point anime series – Rodan 2nd Form. He’s coming packed with a display base and wires that hold a bunch of little baby Rodans (not a show accurate description, forgive me) and a full range of articulation including in the wings. He seems to be a Tamashii Web exclusive, which means he will probably hit Premium Bandai soon as an exclusive. Retail in Japan is 4500 yen or about 43 USD. Release date is around June 2022. Read on for the pics, and stay tuned for US pre-orders information.
Tamashii Nations have dropped a new listing for S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball FighterZ Android 21 – this time in her human form. For those who may not be up on it, Android 21 is a character first seen in the FigtherZ video game, an android who can power up into a Buu like body. She’s rocking her red and blue dress, heels, a white lab coat and that big hairdo. Her signature glasses are removable and it seems to come with at least one small energy effect piece.
An early round of releases will be available to coincide with DragonBall Games Battle Hour event in Japan, orderable via the Asobistore. It is said that the figure will eventually be available on Tamashii Web Shop at a later date. If that goes as normal, it should be a Premium Bandai exclusive in the US as well. None of that is 100% confirmed right now though.
Tentative release date is August 2022 for this early round. Asobistore orders start on January 19th. Retail is 6600 yen (~57 USD).
ICYMI – Android 21 had another release a while back in her Android / Buu-ish form. Check our gallery for that here.
