Dec. 8th 2016

The original Power Rangers were my first love. I couldn't get enough of the figures as a kid, and watched every episode with reckless abandon. I never really cared quite as much once they stopped being the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers and became 47 different versions that have aired since, but I always looked on the latest renditions with appreciation and respect.

Figuarts Turtles teased a few months ago were a great start, and it's finally official, Bandai will be releasing the figures in North America this year!

Chewbacca is one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe, but it's often hard to get him right when translated to plastic. He always just looks a little off because it's so hard to get plastic hair to look perfect, and Chewbacca is all hair.
