Articulation galore! Oh my!

Bluefin carries multiple lines. Rather than break them down into individual articles we decided to bring all this goodness into one. Let’s start with the bad news first. No more Star Wars, the Figuarts line has come to an end. However bright side is they are still doing the model kits which having bought a couple is a decent line similar to the Gundam kits.

The Storm Collectibles line keeps growing with new licenses which included Gears of War. We’ll see Marcus Fenix and Augustus Cole. Also revealed is Batman’s Bane and he’s bringing the pain for sure! Lobo although shown off at SDCC still is a great piece to have when he arrives in stores. New Street Fighter Characters included Sagat, Guile, MBison(Battle Costume), and Cammy(Battle outfit).  Mike Tyson and Muhammed Ali also were announced for those who wanted the dream fight now it can happen and you decide the outcome. So who would win Tyson or Ali? Mortal Kombat displayed some well-done figures including Baraka.

Transformers model kits grew in leaps and bounds adding characters like Megatron, Bumble Bee (Bug version), Thunder cracker, and Star Scream to go along with Optimus Prime, and Nemesis Prime.

Voltron will get the vehicle treatment with the addition of  GX-88 Voltron 1

Gundams get their own action figure line up in a 6-inch scale called the  Gundam Universe. Although there’s no building involved it gives you that Gundam goodness just sturdier. Gundam Model kits get a bit bigger with new additions to it’s line up as well.

Cowboy Bebop will celebrate its upcoming 20th anniversary with characters from Tamashii Nation.  Spike Spiegel and Vicious will be the first characters from the movie to be released.

Street Fighter by SH Figuarts Blanka will be released along with the lightning effect shocking a fighter cut out.

Star Wars movie realization showed off their new additions of  Samurai Taisyo Kylo Ren and Ashigaru Daisho Captain Phasma. This is the Samurai line that has grown in popularity. Other Figures were shown last year that will be coming this year. Along with Star Wars Marvel has their own series as well and showed off  Muhomono Wolverine.

Sh MonsterArts Brings Godzilla King of All Monsters to life with some great pieces. Included is Mothra, Rodan, Godzilla, and the Massive 3 headed monster King Ghidorah. King Ghidorah was so massive it needed its own case.

Tamashii Nation welcomes the wizard boy Harry Potter and crew to its action figure line up. The figures set for release are  Harry Potter, Hermoine Granger, Ron Weasley, and Severous Snipe.

Although not on display because of license requirements, they mentioned Avengers End Game figures were coming.

Wow, that was a mouthful. Although I may have missed some descriptions there was plenty of figures for any fan of everything from Star Wars to Dragon Ball Z. Thank You Bluefin for sharing with us your great product.
