The Mandalorian is a cultural phenomenon. The Disney+ series, which debuted in 2019 with the new streaming service, was an instant hit with Star Wars fans. The story follows the titular character as he travels the galaxy with his adorable sidekick, Baby Yoda, we mean "The Child"...err Grogu.
The Star Wars franchise has been a toy and collectible juggernaut since 1977 when the saga debuted, and that tradition continues with The Mandalorian.
Where to begin... HUNTERS: Day After WWlll is an original product line from Blitzway, designed by BHEADworks. The series kicked things off with the inaugural figure known only as "The Boy." We learned that the Boy is the leader of the "Hunters" and is a master at sniping, and dreams about a utopia; keep dreaming, buddy. It was this figure that truly set the tone for what's to come in regards to incredible detail, a plethora of accessories and a true standout in any collection.
2020 was Team Kamen Rider's first official year, and they sure left an impact at the end of the year with a one-year anniversary event that gave fans an opportunity to win the upcoming CSM (Complete Selection Modification) Sengoku Driver AND a limited edition poster with a signed autograph of Gaku Sano, which Kamen Riders fans know as the actor who played the main character in Kamen Rider Gaim; how awesome is that!?
Figure-Rise Standard is a hobby kit line from Bandai that allows enthusiasts to create fully articulated characters after building them. Originally, the line featured characters from the Dragon Ball series, but as of lately has branched out towards other franchises such as Kamen Rider, Ultraman, and now Digimon.
In 2019 we got a taste of new Digimon Figure-Rise Standard kits with Amplified Omegamon and Amplified Wargreymon as the very first two. These "Amplified" versions were styled slightly different from their original anime/game design while creating something new and memorable for builders and fans alike.
In 2020 the third Digimon Figure-Rise Standard hobby kit, Amplified Metalgarurumon, was released. Similar to Omegamon and Wargreymon, this model would feature Metalgarurumon with an edgier style from its original design. It even includes an awesome effect for its wings, which can also be removed and placed in its mouth as a sword.
