Making this topic since there seems to be none created strangely...

Wanted to alert those here, because Bandai has ventured into villain territory with the Black Inferno armor (I guess they're trying to get a 3rd use out of the Inferno mold... 1st release, 2nd release with improved colors/gloss/paint apps). ! This may lead to the Dark Warlords (these guys http://i.imgur.com/kpOdB8O.jpg).....eventually.

Official page is up!

2nd release version is still here: http://www.nippon-yasan.com/samurai-troopers/5330-yoroiden-samurai-troopers-armor-plus-kikoutei-rekka-guardian-invocation-color-ver-limited-edition.html

Though I don't recommend using that site for the others... they're very high priced. If you do want them, I highly suggest using a site called Mandarake.

I have the search term "armor plus" in this link: http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/search.do?action=keyword&doujin=all&keyword=%E3%83%90%E3%83%B3%E3%83%80%E3%82%A4%E3%80 %80%E3%82%A2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%9E%E3%83%BC%E3%83%97%E 3%83%A9%E3%82%B9&searchStrategy=keyword

This narrows it down a bit more: http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/search.do?action=keyword&doujin=all&keyword=%E9%AD%82%E3%82%A6%E3%82%A7%E3%83%96%E5%95 %86%E5%BA%97+%E3%82%A2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%9E%E3%83%BC% E3%83%97%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B9+%E3%82%B5%E3%83%A0%E3%8 3%A9%E3%82%A4%E3%83%88%E3%83%AB%E3%83%BC%E3%83%91% E3%83%BC&searchStrategy=keyword

They're all sold-out currently, so check it often. FYI, the 2nd release inferno has the grey-scale box.

Ah crap these things have been sold out for yrs i thought it was something being newly released. I'm not paying that for 6 inch figures.
Sucks as it one of my fave shows.

Yeah, they're pretty pricey when first released... and often only go up-up-up as time goes by.

not picking up Black Inferno. What's taking them so long to release White Blaze though?

I have all of them (the 2nd releases of both the Wildfire and Inferno Armors), and I can't wait for Talpa and the Dark Warlords, but while Black Inferno looks great, I don't know the character and don't really have a desire to get the figure. I hope Talpa and the Dark Warlords being made doesn't hinge on Black Inferno selling well.

Well they've never shown White Blaze, only Black Blaze with the 1st release of Inferno.

I'd have to assume production costs outweighed them considering having him as part of the initial Inferno release...or less sales than hoped for either or Inferno release.

I have the 2nd release Wildfire and 2nd release Inferno, along with the other 4. I'll be getting Black Inferno, even if I wasn't a HUGE fan of the OVA where it debuted... as the Dark Warlords being released may very well hinge on Black Inferno's sales.

While simple glass orbs, I'd love these:

Pre-order up at Nippon-Yasan (cheaper than Big in Japan (http://biginjap.com/en/pvc-figures/8881-yoroiden-samurai-troopers-armor-plus-black-inferno.html) or Anime-Export (http://www.anime-export.com/product/18301), and you have the option to pay near the release date rather than right now)

Jeez $97 on preorder? is that normal release price for these figures?

Cloud Strife
02-26-2014, 06:15 PM
Yup, and that's on the cheaper end. If you preorder it from a US e-tailer, it's close to double that.

Indeed, BBTS wants $179, base price... http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=BAN15614&mode=retail :lol

The paint apps on the armor don't look good to me. They look like they just used super glossy paint. Of course, it could just be the lighting in the pic.

Also, it's disturbing that dude is going commando...

Only reason I didn't get these was their high cost.

I really wish they made the warlords. I would have gotten 2 Anubis and made a custom Kayura if they didn't make Kayura.

I picked up all the figures except for the white and black inferno armors. I would have been down for the tiger and any Warlords if they had made them. I'm glad there was such a large space in between releases or I wouldn't have been able to afford them.

I wish Figuarts would pick these up, and put them out for less than $100. I don't need removeable armor.

Samurai Trooper without removable armor is just not Samurai Trooper. I never understood why they cost higher than Saint Seiya & never understood the point of making their figures Tamashii Exclusive. Meaning it's limited amount release thus the high price.

I know the reason, they didn't think they'd sell hence making them exclusives. But although ur right about removable armor, I'd still be cool to have them without removable armor

i don't know how they determine whether a release would be Tamashii web only or to the mass, i notice most of the chogokin line has become Tamashii only, for example the SDX Gundams. samurai trooper is relatively well known in the west, so i don't see why people won't buy if they are mass produced and at Saint Seiya pricing, Saint Seiya collectors would probably also buy them.

I hear ya, Im thinking more fans like us have to go voice our opinion on their FB page, I would all day but dont have a FB lol. Maybe we can get a poll going
