There is plenty of goodness coming from the land of the rising sun. Bandai were in full force at New York Toy Fair, bringing licensed products from every '80s baby's favorite franchises. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures by S.H. Figuarts, contrary to other reports, are coming to the West and are even up for pre-order and will run just under $65 each. Two new entries into the Nintendo line of S.H. Figuarts were also presented. Bowser and a Hammer Bro. are both in the words. I tend to like the Nintendo Nendoroids from Good Smile Company more than the super-articulated S.H. Figuarts, but the Hammer Bro. looks tight! Other franchises were represented, like Mega Man, Star Wars, and Studio Ghibli. Oh, and some high end simulacra of Freddy Mercury and Bruce Lee commemorated the heroes in plastic form. Check out the gallery below for highlights!
