Leading Collectibles And Toy Distributor Marks The 25th Anniversary Of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers With Innovative High-Detail Model Kits Of Legendary Robots And Also Showcases New Gundam White Base And King Of Braves Gaogaigar Releases
Anaheim, CA, February 9, 2018 – Bluefin, the leading North American distributor of toys, collectibles, and hobby merchandise from Japan, Asia and more, heads to New York City this month and announces its participation at Toy Fair 2018 with a variety of new and notable products from the Bandai Shokugan brand.
This year, Bluefin celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the launch of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with the Shokugan Mini-Pla Titanus kit, to augment Megazord and Dragonzord Super Mini-Pla Kits, which are available now from leading retailers. Both releases are fully articulated and faithfully recreate the proportions and details from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series. By combining all 5 Zords from the Megazord kits with the Dragonzord kit, fans can create the all-powerful Mega Dragonzord! Both kits can also be combined with the Titanus unit to form the Ultrazord – the ultimate Power Rangers robot.
As the Super Mini-Pla name implies, these compact model kits offer simple pre-colored snap-together assembly. A nipper or sprue cutter (sold separately) is highly recommended for assembly, but the kits do not require glue.
Bluefin also completes its Shokugan Super Mini Pla display with another legendary Japanese robot, King of Braves Gaogaigar Super Mini-Pla Kit.
Finally, a stunning new product from the Gundam Converge series – the White Base – the iconic mobile suit space carrier depicted in the popular long-running anime sci-fi series. This is a hard-to-obtain Premium Bandai version. Only limited quantities are available.
Bluefin will be located at Booth #5331.
