Following figures from DC Collectibles and Mattel, it looks like NetherRealm's Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game will be getting action figures from Bandai's S.H. Figuarts line. Not just any action figures, either, these superheroes and villains will feature diecast and composite resin construction. Sure, that's just a fancy way of saying "metal and plastic," but it's still a premium feature for fans looking to upgrade.

S.H. Figuarts figures of Dragon Ball Z's most lethal siblings have been caught chillin' among a crowd of Super Saiyan warriors at the Bluefin Distribution booth. Android 18 is apparently being planned for an unspecified future release, with her less empathetic brother Android 17 currently "for display only."
Action figure collectors following Bandai's S.H. Figuarts based on Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon will soon be able to sing along DiC's animated series theme song roll call. As revealed at the Bluefin Distribution booth at San Diego Comic-Con, Sailor Jupiter will soon join Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury. Can a Sailor Venus (or Pluto or Uranus or Neptune or Saturn or Chibi) be far behind?
Tamashii Nations Bluefin Distribution booth #3545 knows what time it is at San Diego Comic-Con, and that's Morphin time, man. Among its two glass case displays housing its recently-released and preorderable Power Rangers Bandai S.H. Figuarts toys were the newly revealed Black, Blue and Yellow Mighty Morphin/Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger ranger toys. The only bad news? They're currently all "for display only."

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, Bandai's cosmetics line Creer Beaute announced the release of cosmetics inspired by Usagi Tsukino (aka Serena, if you grew up with the dubbed series). Creer Beaute's Miracle Romance Shining Moon Powder appears to be both a blush and an illuminating powder, and is encased in a compact that closely resembles Sailor Moon's Crystal Star Transformation Brooch. The compact also doubles as a necklace for those of you who want to channel your inner magical girl without having to sacrifice $100+ on vintage Sailor Moon toys on eBay. The compact is currently available for pre-order for ¥3980 (approximately $41) on Bandai, and will ship in Fall 2013.

The most powerful and, perhaps most ostentatious of all Mega Man X video game series armor designs is set to get the action figure treatment from Bandai as part of its ongoing D-Arts series... and fans probably won't even have to enter a secret code or wait until the year 21XX to get one...
