    Top 4 Favorite Collectibles Of 2021

    The year is drawing to a close, and we've distributed quite a handful of amazing collectibles. That said, we thought it would be great to share with you our Top 4 favorite collectibles this year. It was tough to decide what would be our favorite since we carry various brands from Storm Collectibles, Flame Toys, Sen-Ti-Nel, Studio Ghibli, and more, but after careful thought, we agreed on these four. This isn't a definitive list, it is just our personal favorites, and if you have a list of your favorites from this year feel free to share it with us. In the meantime enjoy our list!

    Bluefin YouTube Channel Overhaul

    If you haven't noticed by now, our Youtube channel has cleaned up quite a bit and never looked as good as it does now. This is all thanks to our new video producer Stephen *YAY*.

    We're cranking out videos faster than you can say Bandai Namco Collectibles LLC. DBA Bluefin…or maybe not. Regardless, our YouTube channel has stepped up its game, such as having a channel trailer as well as amazing graphics inserted in each video now.

    More Digimon Coming to Figure-Rise Standard

    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.
