Tamashii Nations 12"PM

Introducing the newest brand from TAMASHII NATIONS, devoted to spreading Japanese action figure culture around the world. Created in the world-standard 12 inch (30cm) size, these figures feature unparalleled play value. They also represent the high end of the TAMASHII NATIONS brand. The lineup is designed to appeal not only to Japanese, but to worldwide audiences as well. It takes an uncompromising approach to the format, drawing out every bit of the characters’ appeal. The large 12 inch scale allows for tremendous amounts of precision detail, features, and the icing on the cake: total posability. These are seriously high-end action figures. And now they’re traveling beyond the borders of Japan to start a revolution in markets around the world.

Wild Tiger

Tamashii Nations unveils its all new 12 inch high end brand, 12”PM (12 Perfect Model) with Wild Tiger from Tiger&Bunny. Incorporating LED lights in multiple areas to create a green glow, unprecedented levels of articulation with double joins, as well as composite resin and die-cast materials for added weight and presence, this is as close as a figure gets to the real Wild Tiger! 12”PM Wild Tiger features option parts replicating the face of Kotetsu T. Kaburagi., and includes bonus armor parts recreating those that appear in the upcoming film "TIGER & BUNNY –The Beginning-". This high end figure set includes five fixed pose hands and interchangeable shoulder parts for replicating his Wild Shoot, plus one pair of hands with posable fingers. Special display stand also included in set.

Man that is pricey! So much

Man that is pricey! So much for Bandai using its manufacturing might in order to compete with Hot Toys in terms of pricing. I just hope Akiba Red is a little cheaper.

I agree

I agree the market in this economy doesn't need another $300+ a figure line out there right now. I give it 15 months and then they bail on it. Nice thought though Bandai, maybe next time...

Over $300?!

So much for the prediction these might go for less to try and compete with Hot Toys. Outside of the LEDs I don't see any huge difference between this and the SH Figuarts in terms of detail, so who do they think is going to fork out this kind of money for this, especially in a bad economy? If all their entries in the line are going to go for this much, I don't see it doing very well.

Good Luck Mode

The only other major difference I can think of is the fact that it is actually missing the Good Luck Mode hand. So this version actually lost some of the content from the S.H. Figuarts release.
