[Toy Fair 2016] Bandai 2016 Collector Media Event

And if you felt I was not working hard enough for you guys, I now bring you Bandai.

Though I do have to bring the soul-crushing news to half our members that there were unfortunately no GODZILLA products at Bandai this year. I implore you to stick around, though, dear readers, and see some of their other products including Naruto, Shonen Jump, Dragonball Z, and Miraculous, and relive your childhood with Power Rangers.

I do give Miraculous credit. Seeing the figures in person, they were very high quality and, yes, I’ll use the word here — cute!

So here we go; a few properties not Power Rangers…

The Power Rangers that were in the Bandai booth were basically broken into two categories: current figures and legacy figures.

The current figures deal with the current iteration of Power Rangers Dino Charge.

Whereas the legacy line features older series figures and Zords; in the figure lines, they will also be releasing various characters from different iterations in a given series (not pictured due to restrictions).

However, most impressive were the very realistic communicators and morphers. While they have a fairly high retail price, they are both quality items including die cast chrome, die cast medallions, and color specific Zord specific releases. These are for the adult collector who grew up with the show and wants a really nice piece in their collection.

As always, Hi-Def Ninja is super thankful to the people at Bandai for inviting us into their Toy Fair space and letting us see their newest releases.
