Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America has given fans more than enough reason to clear their shelves with their ever growing catalog of anime action figures from some of the biggest IPs around. As their collections build, so has Bandai’s reputation for being leaders in meticulously crafted and affordable figures. For May 2023, the toymaker has deemed “AniMAY” to celebrate the breadth of their lines and what’s to come.
Bringing only the most celebrated characters from the anime right to fans’ hands, Bandai has allowed them to continue the story beyond the screen and manga pages and showcase their fandoms. Their Dragon Stars line alone has grown to give Dragon Ball fans over 70 collectible characters in 6.5-inch figure form, alongside their Dragon Ball Evolve and Limit Breaker lines. Fans can kickoff AniMAY by pre-ordering the new Dragon Stars Super Yi-Shenron and Son Gohan Beast figures, as well as the Dragon Stars Battle Pack Piccolo vs. Gamma 2 and the Dragon Ball Limit Breaker Super Saiyan Gogeta and Super Saiyan Vegito figures.
Expanding the scope of their offerings, Bandai introduced fans to the Anime Heroes line, which umbrellas some of the most popular IPs, including One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Digimon. Waiting to be added to any fan collection are One Piece Brook, Jujutsu Kaisen Gojo Satoru, and Bleach Hitsugaya Toshiro, all of which are available for pre-order on Amazon now. Also noteworthy is the Ultimate Legends line of 5-inch action figures, which has just expanded to include the hit anime Demon Slayer.
Bringing the fun to a variety of sizes, select IPs have also been scaled down without sacrificing the fun or detailing in the collectible ADVERGE and Gashapon Blind Packs lines as well to give fans even more ways to celebrate their fandoms.
“Anime has exploded into the Western mainstream and we’re thrilled to be able to give fans a way to interact with their favorite characters,” said Daisuke Zama, Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America, Vice President Marketing. “Our detailed figures bring the characters to a new dimension where their imaginations are the only limitations.”
During May 2023, Bandai will be celebrating their growing lines by showcasing their lineups with downloadable collector charts, giveaways, and sneak peeks at new figures to come. Whether you’re new to the world of anime or a collector from day one, Bandai’s anime catalog has something for everyone to show off their fandom and bring the storylines into your hands like never before.
