The Black/Mammoth Ranger and Kyoryu Green and Blue set have been released in Japan, and we've got a picture gallery featuring over 70 images for you right here, thanks to 2chan!

The fine folks at Bluefin are bringing over the Black Ranger, though, sadly, the Kyoryu Green and Blue set are Bandai Premium Webshop exclusives, and they now need to be found... wherever you can get them! Best of luck to you!

Import Monsters Special Report!

 NECA Acquires the Rights to Ellen Ripley!

With the reveal of the Power Loader many began to wonder whether or not an Ellen Ripley figure was being planned.  Well sure enough, NECA just confirmed on Twitter that they have indeed acquired the rights to do Multiple Ripley figures!  This is indeed surprising since getting the rights to Sigourney Weaver's likeness is notoriously difficult!  Bravo, NECA!

S.H. Figuarts Goku Delayed from March to April

JUST tweeted out by Tamashii Nations (Bandai itself, NOT Bluefin), the S.H. Figuarts Goku has been delayed by one month, with the new release date being sometime in April.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed by Bluefin that, at this time, the April U.S. release date is unaffected by the delay in Japan! So, if you're ordering through a Bluefin-supplied retailer, it seems like you'll get it just in time!
