Bandai America had their booth on the floor of the Javitz center this year. Outside the booth stood an enormous fiberglass Megazord and also a giant Ben 10. Inside, we are greeted warmly.
Gone are Kamen Rider toys. All that remains is Power Rangers and Ben 10. However, both lines are large and looking good.
For Power Rangers, the renewed Mighty Morphin' line will continue through 2010 and beyond. Their top-seller was the retooled Deluxe Megazord. When asked about the dragonzord, they said that the #1 request was for a Dragonzord. Bandai confirmed a Deluxe Dragonzord for sometime in 2011. they said this Dragonzord will feature electronic lights, sound and motorized action. No idea what that action is, or if the Dragonzord will combine with the Megazord.
Titanus was on display, however, it does not appear to integrate with the previously released megazord. This Titanus is one of those character builders where you can put arms and legs of mini characters into a tray and some mechanism puts them all together. Still, Titanus looks good, and is a nice modern representation for the shelf.
Other Power Ranger goods on display were the new action figures, figures that transform into morphers, and cool mini-figures.
Role play was there as well. This Green Ranger Dragon Flute has electronic lights and sounds, as well as an extending blade that glows.
If you've read this far, I have a special treat for you. When talking to the Bandai reps about the future line, they said that the plan is to move back to the Japanese series, starting with Shinkenger, probably in 2012.
