Hey guys.........I'm a newcomer to the forum, but a long time Kinniiku Fan...........I'm also an avid figure collector, but chose to pass on the more recent Revoltech and Medicos lines...........good job I did, because this new Figuarts line from Bandai Tamashii is shaping up to be the definitive collection!! I was reluctant at first as have never been thrilled by their DBZ figures, but these seem much better.

 

Kinnikuman and Warsman are due in January, along with the wrestling ring stage.

They also announced 3 more figures at Tamashii Nation yesterday. Robin Mask, Neptuneman & Akuma Shogun96.jpg95.jpg97.jpg

 

Finally, on top of all that, they are holding a vote for the next figures!! http://tamashii.jp/s...tner/index.html

 

Currently Asuraman seems next most popular, although I voted for Ramenman, Buffalo & Blackhole!!

 

Voting closes tomorrow, I'd love to hear from anyone who has these pre-ordered and what other characters they'd hope to have next!!

Good, someone got to this thread before I had to! Haven't preordered either yet because I'd like to know how they turn out first, but I might grab the stage. Unfortunately, Bluefin isn't importing the Kinnikuman figures for the US (apparently unable to get the license, can't imagine why), only the wrestling Tamashii Stage.

 

As for characters premiered at Tamashii Nation, there were four, not three. :)

Bandai show displays are always amazing.

Yeah, I saw that on MFC...............but the fact it's only a head and red boots doesn't make me sure he'll definitely get a figure..........Hopefully he does though!!

When it comes to Tamashii Nations, nothing on display is guaranteed a release unless you see a release date shown off. Look at how many years - since SH Figuarts started - before Master Asia from G-Gundam was finally possible to order! It's still a good sign, plus Black Hole has the benefit of being an incredibly basic sculpt and the Revoltech Mini figure released (Bandai loves to try to one-up Kaiyodo and other competitors with the same licenses).

Well I just bit the bullet and ordered Suguru & Warsman along with the ring from CDJapan. Total with shipping came to £50, so I'm pretty pleased with that. I look forward to getting them in the new year! Hopefully we'll get a solid release date for Robin Mask soon!

Hello everyone! I am a new user and was going to post on here about these new Figuarts Images of Kinnikuman but it appears I was beaten to it! Haha! All good! I don't know about you guys but I am salivating just thinking about the future figures! Doing my research I found these for us to gaze at to hang us over for our Kinnikuman Action Figure Fix! Here is what looks like the images of planned release (no dates I am afraid) characters.

 

Although not Figuarts, I thought that I should show the upcoming Revoltech Mini's as well since I plan on getting them too! :D

That's not the list of future releases in the first pic, that's a poll that was held by Tamashii Nations to see which characters from that list people most wanted. Sadly, all my votes were in the bottom eight... On the bright side, Akuma Shogun looks fantastic so far.

Can't beleive Sunshine didn't get a few more votes than that.

Mammothman, and Omegaman would have been sweet.

Been away for a while, but back and excited as Jump Festa starts in 33 hours so Tamashii may show us something more for this line!! For reference they have a site for Kinnikuman: http://tamashii.jp/special/kinnikuman/
Final poll results were as follows:

So imagine they will continue with releasing Robin Mask and Akuma Shogun, but we may see the main cast of Ramenman/Terryman/Buffaloman/Brocken Jr. before Neptuneman.

Asuraman and Ataru Kinniku also appear to be surprisingly popular choices!

I meant to post these earlier in the week, but was busy. Whilst not Figuarts figures, they still look really cool and were shown at last weekends Jump Festa:

Thanks for the share!! Final quality looks great for a Bandai product!! Really pleased!! Official release is next Saturday!! Also that Robin Mask looks kick ass.......I don't know how long it will take them to get around to doing Buffaloman, but I can't wait so I grabbed the Medicos 2P version off Manda.

 

For those still looking for these, CDJapan still has them for pre-order. Best price I've seen them for:

Ooh, Robin Mask and Neptuneman!  Do want!  The wait until June will be tough, but it'll be worth it.  Maybe Buffaloman or Ashuraman will be released with Akuma Shogun then?  Do we know if they're going with the most popular characters first or if the pairings that make the most sense can give a less popular character a quicker release with a more popular character?

Afraid not. This is the Buffaloman from Medicos. They only did Robinmask, Warsman and Buffaloman, so it made sense for me to get it since Tamashii are releasing the other 2!

Knowing Bandai (and this goes for most figure companies) they will most likely go with whatever are the easiest sculpts (that works with their articulated base model) Akuma Shogun has already been shown, as has Blackhole, so probably those 2 next. Ramenman, Ataru and Terryman would be easy, but imagine Asuraman would be a little bit more difficult with all those arms......

 

Don't expect we'll see Buffaloman, Brocken Jr.or Ninja until 2016......lets hope they'll continue the line and it'll be as popular as the Dragon Ball line!!
