WishWeWereThere: Tamashii Nations 2011

Ah! The big year-end event that celebrates and showcases the goodness that Bandai provides for us Japanese toy geeks has come and gone. If you were lucky enough to be at Tamashii Nations 2011 in Akiba Square from the 25th through the 27th, then maybe you had a chance to see it all in person. But for the rest of us, we had to scour our favorite sources to find out what's to come from the big B. Toys from S.H.Figuarts, S.I.C., Super Robot Chogokin, Ultra-Act, S.H.MonsterArts, and more were all on display. I've narrowed it down to what was relevant to my collection as well as what many of Toy Nippon's readers and followers are into and I won't get into much detail except for a thing or two that was making its debut. The pictures will do most of the talking. Enjoy!
