Bandai’s Sprukits Let You Build Batman In Your Own Home, Just As You’ve Always Dreamed

Bandai Sprükits Batman Figure

When I was a kid, there was about a year where I got really into building models, mainly because I didn't have many friends and that was the easiest way that you could get a giant Darth Vader with a glow-in-the-dark lightsaber. It didn't last too long since the enjoyment that I got from putting things together moved back into LEGO sets, but it was enough that I get a little twinge of nostalgia from it -- especially when I see something like Bandai's new line of Sprükits Action Figure Model Kits.

The deal with them is that they're not just models, they're kits for building fully poseable action figures with accessories that require no scissors, glue or paint. You just snap it all together, and judging by the Arkham City Batman figure that I just put together, they're actually pretty cool.

S.H. Figuarts Kikaider
Bandai

After a few years of relative quiet, Shotaro Ishinimori's Kikaider is set for a major resurgence. On May 18 a new version of the android hero will team with Kamen Rider Gaim in the 30th episode of the character's eponymous tokusatsu series to fight Kikaider's classic rival Hakaider. One week later on May 24 the conscience-circuit-equipped robot will star in a solo film, Kikaider REBOOT, which could result in an ongoing TV series. Though action figure fans will have to wait until April of 2015 to unbox it, Bandai Japan has opened preorders for a limited edition S.H. Figuarts action figure incarnation of the character's 1971 manga and TV style.

S.H. Figuarts Sailor Jupiter

Action figure collectors will soon be able to assemble Sailor Moon's core crew of Sailor Scouts. This September Sailor Jupiter will join Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus as part of Banai's S.H. Figuarts line. Like the other figures in the line, SJ seems modeled principally after the Sailor Moon anime that originally ran in the '90s, but it should still sit fine with readers of creator Naoko Takeuchi's manga and the upcoming Sailor Moon Crystal anime based on her art style.

Well, the time has come. Starting today fans can preorder the web-exclusive S.H. Figuarts Android 17 for ¥4104 (about $40.14 USD), and expect to get it by September.
