    Maybe the line isn't sufficiently high-profile in this day and age, but I'm disappointed that there weren't any reveals for more Ranma 1/2 figures.

    Got S.H.Figuarts Luke Skywalker (ANH Farm Boy version) earlier today at Bic Camera. Neat figure. There was one other (Japanese) Star Wars fan there who went through the entire stack of figures looking for the perfect Luke. Talk about OCD behavior. :D

    The time to have released these was around 2002-2005 when the manga/anime was being pushed in the US market.

    I, too, would've liked to see a few more, Ryoga and Ukyo at least.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the high price demanded for girl Ranma turned off alot of would-be buyers. That and Japan's modus operandi of NEVER EVER FINISHING CASTS/TEAMS.

    All the past Ranma figures were announced at japanese events so I'm not worried.

    Apparently, Bandai won't be at WonFes tomorrow so I guess they have their own event planned in the coming months and I suspect we will see Ryouga there.

    Bandai also likes to sit on completed sculpts because reasons. There's about a dozen DBZ figures they've been taking to shows for years now with no release dates attached.

    How much do you want to bet we'll see alternate versions of some of the Ranma characters before the full(or at least main) cast is completed?

    For example, Shampoo in her Amazon garb and/or a dress, Akane in a karate gi, Ukyo in her male disguise, etc.

    Considering how the DBZ line has been going... wouldn't be surprised at all. :)

    Did the Tenshinhan and Yamucha displays just disappear halfway through the convention?

    No. I just don't think people were taking a bunch of pictures of them.

    They were pulled from the display, there's a bunch of photos going around from the last couple days where they straight up aren't in there.

    Depending on well Star Wars: Rogue One does at the box office, we might just see an SHF Donnie Yen after all. :D

    If it weren't for the photos that did show up, I wouldn't have known they were ever there AT ALL.

    I was there all five days, around the exhibition floor Wed/Thur & Sunday, and stopped by the TN booth each day. Hell, I jetted over to the TN booth as soon as they opened things up on Preview Night to get in line for Broly. I never saw Yamcha or Tien in the DBZ display or anywhere else at the TN booth, and I went and scoped out all the TN displays as soon as I finished purchasing Broly. For whatever reason, they took them down fast and if they ever put them back up, they sure as hell didn't do it while I was around.

    (Random, but the only unexpected moment I did experience at the TN booth was Noelle Foley standing around before she went off to interview someone at another booth.)

    Broly (and the Movie Realization Sandtrooper) were limited to three per person, and I think TN was requiring passes to get in line Thurs-Sun (or maybe just the first couple days, not sure). They weren't stamping badges like Hasbro does, but they were marking your badge, but I don't know if that was to prevent people from getting back in line each day or not. I do know that Broly had a "Sold Out" sign in front of the one they had on display at the booth. Hopefully the purchasing limit throughout the convention means more got their hands on Broly. It also means I'm not that surprised that BBTS sold out already, if their people weren't able to get their hands on as many as usual.
