Tamashii Features 2020, SH Figuarts displays for Marvel, Star Wars and DC

Tamashii Nations held their Summer Features Event as a Virtual tour, with a number of reveals on display - although the overall output was quite lacklustre. The virtual tour was a great idea and worked well until you hit the reveals which were all hidden and accessible to visitors in Japan only who had Tamashii club membership.


There was a fantastic diorama display for the new Iron-Man figures including the cave workshop for Tony (images from AmiAmi)



For Marvel we have a number of tweaked figures. There is a new Doctor Strange with wired cape and some adjusted accessories from Infinity War, The Battle of Titan.


We are then getting a new Thanos and Thor from Endgame - the final battle versions. Thanos is shown with damaged armour while Thor is full on lightning mode with multiple FX pieces and both Mjolnir and Stormbreaker.



Scarlet Witch gets a re-release, now with painted red eyes. And the Mk7 Avengers Iron-Man suit is repainted and re-released at some point. And of course there is the Mk85 Iron-Man from Endgame with unmasked Tony Stark head, battle damage decor and Nano Gauntlet. It also includes a diorama base to recreate Tony's final scenes. Iron-Man Mk7, Mk85 and Scarlet Witch are official solicitations with a November 2020 release date.



There is also an image circulating of a new head sculpt for Falcon with smiling head. I am not sure on where this originates. He is holding Cap's shield, and this may be a very early look at a figure from the upcoming Disney+ show. I am afraid I can't translate the wording on the image.



Star Wars had a small display focusing on The Mandalorian. There was nothing new here, just another look at the two Mandalorian figures and IG-11. The Remnant Stormtrooper and Speeder Bike & Scout were also included - but were not marked up for release yet, saying "display only".


Next to Star Wars was a solitary DC figure in the shape of the already confirmed Wonder Woman 1984 figure.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
