Bandai/toy round-up

With SDCC and more, Bandai has had a lot of stuff on display as of late. First, on the American side of things:

Power Rangers Megaforce is going to have a line of Ranger Keys, though they look tiny and off model compared to the Gokaiger ones:

On the Japanese side of things, Dragonball Z‘s Eternal Dragon is getting a Figuarts or MonsterArts, but they haven’t decided which yet:

The Alien Vs Predator series is getting MonsterArts treatment, which is pretty redundant considering all of the other toy lines that have tackled those characters. I really hope that the line doesn’t just resort to regurgitating Revoltech’s output like the SRC series has been doing lately.

They have announced a Battra, though:

Also, the SIC line looks like it’s getting back to its roots, as the Uva Greeed from Kamen Rider OOO has a display base like the very first SICs did:

Other news:

  • SH Figuarts Sailor Jupiter and Venus have been confirmed.
  • All of the Gokaiger Figuarts are getting a US release, good news for those who couldn’t nab the Yellow and Pink rangers, who were webshop exclusives in Japan.
  • SH Figuarts will be doing toys for the Justice League video game Injustice: Gods Among Us.

On a final, non-Bandai note, NECA’s Leatherback from Pacific Rim has been unveiled:
