    It's a model kit where you can remove the accessories?

    Yep, you should be able to configure it how you want based on the other kits they've released. The pics on their website I linked to show it in Specialist and regular modes.

    Thanks! Now to find one. None are available at BBTS and HLJ.

    They are no longer for sale from regular retailers because of some embargo but you can usually find them on Ebay or Amazon for under $30.

    Hey all,

    Anyone have any idea why i can't find SHF Marvel ANYWHERE in Taipei, Taiwan? I've seen plenty of SH Kamen / Sailor / etc, but not a single Marvel character? Very odd, I've visited shops like Beast Kingdom, trawled the Taipei City Mall's anime area, where you have absolutely tonnes of Marvel Legends, Comicave, Revo, HTs - but i haven't managed to turn up a single SHF item? Obviously i can turn to HLJ (having ordered almost all of my collection from them, back when i was in the UK), but i'm going to be 'of no fixed address' for the next little while, and it would be great to be able to buy from brick n mortar (i'll be Air BnB for a while while i lock a teaching position here). Could it be a licensing issue perhaps?

    Speaking of licensing, did something change with the Marvel license recently? I know Bluefin is distributing an Iron Man with Hall of armor and a movie Dr. Strange figuart, but I could have sworn before that I had to import all of my marvel figuarts. Is this because Strange is bundled with the exclusive effects parts or something? Or will we finally get distribution of some of the Marvel tamashii web exclusives?

    Iron Man is the first, Dr. Strange is the second US release, you are correct. The accessory is why. They mentioned that the accessory had to be included for the figures to be licensed in the US.

    Weird, is that some condition from their license with Hasbro, similar to why Lego can't sell licensed minifigs alone (except when tied to a lego movie, I guess?)

    If so, gimme some lame accessory with Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Black Panther, I'll buy it!

    That sounds like a great idea.

    Ebay:
    Premium Cell was just released in Japan a couple weeks ago, so I'm guessing directly from Japan one way or another. BBTS won't be getting their Cells in until whenever Bluefin's stock shows up, which could be end of month or drag on into April.

    (I did get invoiced & paid for the new SSY Gohan in February, a month after it's Japanese release, via Toy Source so hopefully those waiting on US retailers for Cell won't have too long a wait there either.)

    Ebay:
    That reminds me, the rest of the DBZ Figure-Rise kits finally popped up on Barnes and Noble's website. I can't wait for that "Check Store Availability" button to show up because I have a 20% off coupon with Cell's name on it. Hell, I pretty much want all of them (lord knows when we'll get a Figuarts Buu or SSJ4s), but Cell comes first.


    Also, I finally got around to booking a hotel room for the Tamashii Nations World Tour in New York in April! I'm looking forward to it, as it'll be my first time in New York.

    Hmmm I definitely remember seeing Captian America in 2 shops in the underground mall when I was in Taipei in Sept. Did you try the IT mall? I forgot if it was the old one or new one but there is floor that is just toys. There is also the Wan Nian building. I wasn't shopping for Marvel Figuarts so I'm not sure if they'll have any but those are places you can check.



    Soo... I got SS Vegeta with the new hips over the weekend and umm he smells like super sculpey. I had to air him out. It's fine now but that was weird. hahaha

    Thanks Soupy - I'll make sure to take a good look in those spots; maybe its down to there not being a newly released Marvel SHF on general release at the moment, i was expecting to see older stock available, but we'll have to see what happens when Strange drops.
