Here's a list of Bluefin Distribution's first listing of SDCC exclusive figures, according to SDCC itself. Will post up any future release in another post!

More after Broly, including more DBZ and TMNT!

S.H.Figuarts Broly -Premium Color Edition-

Kakarot!!!! Kakarot!!!! KAKAROT!!!! TAMASHII NATIONS’ 2016 SDCC Exclusive is S.H.Figuarts Broly -Premium Color Edition-! The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly is here with a superior quality paint that you’ve never seen before!! The coloring is applied with utmost care, bringing out details that couldn't be recreated before. Broly comes in at approximately 7.5 inches high, appropriately taller than other S.H.Figuarts Dragon Ball characters. His overwhelming power and muscular build are captured with a meticulous sculpt. Recreate some of Broly’s more infamous scenes with the additional facial expression parts, one smirking maniacally and the other screaming berserk-like. Additional parts include three unique energy-sphere effect parts and interchangeable hand pieces.

S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla Ultimate Burning Ver.

S.H. MonsterArts and NECA Kaiju Summer Price Guide

Ah, good ol' summer! With it comes a nice flow of action figures and plenty of chances to buy them, like conventions and festivals! However, sometimes the dealer's room, flea market, buying corner, or what have you will have a figure you're looking for at an outrageous price, nearly $20-$50 more than MSRP for a newly released figure. Unacceptable for your wallet! Sure, you might be at a con to spend money and have a good time, but the more deals you find means more figures you can buy.

The guide will be pretty simple to follow; I'll show you a pretty stock photo of the figure with the current Amazon price at the time this article was created (to save you the trouble of checking, and since it's popular) with another retailer if they offer a lower price. If you're interested in placing an order right then, click the link to go where you need to. Ready? Well, let's get on with it!

The following list will be for newer figures which are easy to get. For some figures which have been long out of production and have hit aftermarket prices, due diligence with sold eBay listings and secondhand Japanese sites will net you the best price.
