Happy Goku Day!Categories: Latest News , Events , Dragon Ball , Blog , Tamashii Nations
It’s May 9th and that means it’s time to celebrate one of anime’s most iconic characters: Goku! To the uninitiated and unfamiliar of the fan holiday in Japan, Goku Day holds a very similar meaning to those familiar with May the 4th (Star Wars Day), as the number 5 can be translated as “Go” and the number 9 can be translated is “Kyu/Ku”.
To celebrate Goku Day, we’re counting down what we believe to be the top five fights Goku has had throughout the series, from Dragon Ball to Dragon Ball Super! Keep this in mind that this is only our opinion and that we’d love to hear what you believe are to be some of his iconic fights!

In just a few days, Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America Inc. will be attending C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) in Chicago, August 5-7, 2022. This will be our third show following up from SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) and Anime Expo, which were both held in Southern California. Now, we fly East to bring all the fun and action to Chicago, and we cannot wait. Last time we attended the show was back in March of 2020, right before the pandemic took a turn for the worst.
For those that were able to attend might remember the Godzilla statue, as well as the RX-78-2 Gundam statue where attendees got a chance to try our workshop model kits. It was also the second time we had held a Team Kamen Rider meet and greet, which had dozens of fans show up. It was the last physical show before we dived into digital shows.
Team Kamen Rider At Anime Expo 2022Categories: Latest News , Kamen Rider , Events , Blog
Team Kamen Rider is thrilled to return to Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California. This year, the team has some fun and exciting plans to spread the awareness of Kamen Rider. This will be Team Kamen Riders first time at AX with a booth filled with displays. During their last visit to AX, they were still known as Team Rider and had only quite a few members. The team has grown quite a bit since then.
Don't know what a Kamen Rider is or want to learn more about Kamen Rider? Then, visit booth #2211 in the Exhibit Hall. The booth will have various rider belts on display, informational graphics, as well as a demo belt of the Ziku Driver from Kamen Rider Zi-O. If you’ve never had a chance to play with a Kamen Rider belt, then you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to interact with the Ziku Driver (it’s a fun belt to play with). The booth will also have Kamen Rider merchandise available
