The Tamashii Nations display from San Diego Comic-Con 2019 included items we’ve pretty much seen before. You can check out their S.H. Figuarts for Cowboy Bebop, Street Fighter, and more. For 7″ figures they had the Star Wars Movie Realization and Marvel Manga Realization. They also had their Godzilla: King of the Monsters S.H. MonsterArts, and the Soul of Chogokin – GX-88 Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (Vehicle Voltron) on display.
Tamashii Nations has posted the product page for their upcoming Soul of Chogokin – GX-88 Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, also known as Vehicle Voltron. Included with the figure are the 15 vehicles that can combine to form Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. Each vehicle is a mix of diecast metal, and ABS and PVC plastics. When fully assembled, Dairugger stands about 11.5″ tall. The figure includes numerous weapons, such as a sword, a lance, spin cutter, and more. The weapons can be stored on the included weapons pedestal. Multiple interchangeable hands are also included.
Pre-orders are set to open on June 3rd in Japan. The GX-88 Armored Fleet Dairugger XV is priced at 38,500 Yen (about $351 USD). It will be released in October. You can see the new photos after the jump.
Another new magazine scan, most likely from Figure King Magazine, gives us our first new look at the Soul of Chogokin – GX-88 Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, also known as Vehicle Voltron. We originally saw this figure back at the Bluefin Tamashii Nations display from Toy Fair 2019. The scans, courtesy of Toyzfrontline, showcase the final painted figure, the individual vehicles and the accessories. The figure includes multiple weapons, such as a sword and spear, as well as a display stand to store them. When assembled, the figure will stand nearly 11.5″ tall.
The scan indicates that GX-88 Armored Fleet Dairugger XV is set for release in October. The price looks to be 38,500 Yen (about $349 USD). See the images after the jump.
Here’ a nice large gallery of the remaining Tamashii Nations booth from Bluefin’s display at Toy Fair 2019. There’s a ton of Gundam to check out, as well as a bit of Voltron (including Vehicle Voltron!) and a couple Disney items, and a couple Power Rangers items that were there as well.

Power Rangers are usually handled by our brothers in arms over at Tokunation.com – but today we wanted to take a quick look at some of the SDCC 2018 Power Rangers exclusives. Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands released 3 major ones – S.H. Figuarts versions of the Red Ranger and Green Ranger, but this time with alternate unmasked heads featuring face scan likenesses of the actors. They also re-released their Soul of Chogokin Megazord in a black, green and gold color scheme. All 3 are superbly done, especially the Megazord. It’s heavy die cast, high gloss paint and chrome, it feels expensive in your hand, which is good because it is a pretty penny. I was never into Power Rangers when it first aired, so I have no strong connection to the actor likenesses. They seem solid for what they are though. Even though they’ve been out with the helmets before, that’s how these guys will stay on my shelves since they are my first PR figures in the rotation :).
We’ve run all 3 through some pretty shots, however they aren’t full detailed galleries. Keep an eye on Tokunation.com for full sets of these guys soon though!
