We were hoping they weren’t just one-offs, and Tamashii Nations has rewarded that faith.
Like many other companies, Bandai‘s collector-focused sub-brand obtained rights to Suicide Squad figures, but until now, had announced only one: Harley Quinn. Likewise, their Samurai Spider-Man was a thing of beauty, yet for a while there was no indication that he’d be joined by any amazing friends. Well, it’s time to give them some company.
Joker comes ready to stand next to his kinda-sorta lady love, complete with alternate hands and heads (laughing and serious), all colored by a digital process so precise it even distinctively colors his pupils. Plus he has two pink guns, because this Joker doesn’t kid around about blowing your head off.
Iron Man, redesigned in the aesthetic of feudal Japan, includes a steampunk-esque backpack and flintlock cannons. He also comes with alternate hands, and a katana for swordfights with Samurai Spidey.
Tamashii Nations’ samurai aesthetic will also be bringing us a feudal era Star Wars Stormtrooper archer–but we’ve covered him in-depth before. Joker’s practically a steal for a high-end import figure at $59.99, while Iron Man, with his more detailed paint apps and intricate breastplate scrollwork, is more in line with his buddy Spider-Man at $91.99. Preorders start now at many of your favorite online retailers, for deliver by March of 2017.
And that’s not all. Also starting preorders are chibi-style Power Rangers figures of the Mighty Morphin Red Ranger, Pink Ranger, and Lord Zedd; the High-Metal R Dougram from Fang of the Sun Dougram, with pilot figures, opening cockpit, and diecast parts; The FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam based on the ’80s incarnation of the model series; a Saint Seiya figure/diorama set of Sagittarius Aiolos that comes with two cute baby accessory figurines; and a 20-inch Kaleidomoon Scope prop replica from Sailor Moon. You can get closer looks at all of them in our image gallery below.
