    How do we think Bluefin is gonna handle the Infinity War releases?

    I already have GotG StarLord with the explosion effects - I cannot imagine what they'd include to make me want the same mediocre (imo) mold with a different shirt

    Dr. Strange is MAYBE a different shade of blue, new hands with the partial glove, and the slingring effect. Another flame set from Bluefin wouldn't do it for me.
    I have other SHF's on order for April so i might get Strange and throw him in that shipment

    Bluefin has given us Iron Man armors with Hall of Armors - that might be worth it
    Did they bring over Captain America? The new head and shield would make that a purchase

    Thanos they could throw in some Rock effects
    Spidey i DEFINITELY want the wall effect

    I am in for a dozen of the Marvel stand + case

    Black Panther won't come out through Bluefin since its a TWE

    From Tamashii Nation's Instagram: insTamashii (@instamashii) • Instagram photos and videos

    They posted saying Black Panther would come with rock effects (9180 yen), Iron Spider would come with a Tamashii Stage (9504 yen) and Black Widow would come with explosion effects (8964 yen). Although Black Widow would have a release date of August instead of July. Not sure if Bluefin will be able to bring these over like they did with Thor with lightning effects.

    I don't want to spoiler anything so I won't post images but I googled the infinity war hulkbuster and it looks amazeballs. Can't wait to see what Bandai does. Also would like a good Hulk I hope they do one as the existing figuarts Hulk looks sub-par.

    I don't have any problems with the Hulk. Maybe could use some more head movement

    Black Panther finally has his claws!

    Black Widow's uh figure looks great...face is a little oily.

    Cap looks like he could pass as Rick Grimes.

    Thanos looks really good (for what it is)!

    Luke looks like a Hobbit.

    I wish there was a better view of the Hulk...the only MCU figure I actually want.

    Anyone spot any mold changes on Spidey? Looks like just a recolor to me, aside from the chest detailing

    Some of those prototypes look hand-painted, should explain widow's face

    These may be the US releases. They're above that $80 price point that bluefin seems to be hitting with each release.

    Found this comparison image on instagram:

    [​IMG]

    James on Instagram: “Just my thoughts on the Iron Spider: For those saying it’s just a repaint... it’s just not. Yes they look similar but what were you…”

    He's got the same base mold but there is new sculpting all over his body. Also the webbing on his body seems to be engraved instead raised.

    That's definitely possible. Though the Thor with lightning effects set was also available in Japan so maybe they are moving to this new style of release in Japan as well.

    but prices in yen indicate Japanese release

    EDIT:
    WAIT
    I am now comparing the prices on that Instamashii instagram post with the prices on the Tamashii release page

    The prices on the instagram post are definitely higher, so those effects may just be for the US release, but they put the price in yen

    wish they'd clear up the bluefin versions earlier, the damn japanese preorders are coming up tonight!

    Good find. I'm glad its the same base mold, i found it quite good, capable of poses suited for Spiderman that others couldn't hit

    And yeah, looks like lots of new surface detailing

    Ok now i'm extra confused
    Let's look at Spiderman

    Tamashii instagram says it comes with tamashii Stage + price 9504 yen
    Tamashii release calendar also includes tamashii stage, but price is 7344 yen (S.H.Figuarts アイアン・スパイダー(アベンジャーズ/インフィニティ・ウォー) | 魂ウェブ)

    There's no way its $20 different for the same stuff, but that price difference would account for a WALL stage or something extra

    then there's Black Panther - its a Tamashii Web exclusive - we NEVER get those through bluefin, right?

    Pre orders are up on AmiAmi
    It has the lower prices, and the listings do NOT include any of the bonuses listed on the Tamashii instagram

    Looks like it's safe to assume Bluefin is bringing over Black Panther, Steve Rogers, Spiderman, and Widow with the stuff it mentioned

    I wasn't going to wait for the Bluefin releases, but it looks like there won't be the time gap (we hope), and i've discovered EE usually has a discount code to get additional savings, so i'll probably get their versions

    Damn, why is Black Panther always a Tamashii Web exclusive?

    I looked back at who the exclusive figures were.Bluefin has brought over the last couple Iron Man armors and Star Lord. They were all Tamashii Web Exclusives. It seems the only one they didn't bring over was Rocket and Groot.

    Cap
    Widow
    Panther
    Spidey

    Amiami
    Thanks
    Strange
    Iron man (odd bluefin isn't bringing this)
    Maybe 6 marvel stands, they look great

    Skip

    Yeah, if/when Bluefin brings over Cap I'll get him then... if he does have his shield. Otherwise still not seeing him being worth it at all.

    In the meantime, just ordered Thanos, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Iron Spider on AmiAmi. ^_^
