S.H. Figuarts Reveals Shredder Figure at SDCC 2016
I always get excited whenever San Diego Comic-con rolls around, because I know that we’re going to see some turtley awesome new merchandise on display. Of course, there was no way I could have expected what S.H. Figuarts would reveal during the convention, and I was absolutely floored to see this bad boy on display. As you can see from the image above, in addition to their line of classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures, they have also decided to create a Shredder figure as well. Fans of the original animated series will definitely want to pick this set up!
Before you start worrying about the price, it’s worth noting that all four of the TMNT figures are currently available for pre-order at a price of between $63 and $66 each. If this new S.H. Figuarts Shredder figure follows suit, we can expect a similar price structure when it is released sometime next year. Unfortunately, we don’t have any official information about its release date, but it’s a safe bet that we will see this on the market before too long. That being said, it is interesting to note that this is the third Shredder figure that has been announced in the last few weeks.
First Gokin announced their Oraku Saki figure at the end of June, while DreamEX followed shortly after in the first week of July. It is now the last week of July and we are seeing yet another Shredder figure being prepared for the market. If you’re a fan of the leader of the foot clan, this has got to be some pretty awesome news! The S.H. Figuarts line is likely to be the least expensive, with DreamEX and First Gokin models both expected to fetch prices of over $100 each. In comparison, it is likely that this latest Shredder figure will be sold at a price of well under $100, making it a much better deal for collectors and fans alike.
If you’re a fan of the original animated series and you want to show it off in style, this line of highly posable S.H. Figuarts TMNT figures is likely to be an excellent deal. If Shredder ends up selling for $66, you’ll only be paying $450 for all five figures, and that’s a pretty good price for collectible Ninja Turtles merchandise!
