    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!

    Team Kamen Rider Announces New Items

    Throughout the year each brand from Bluefin Brands announces amazing new toys and collectibles that are must-have for collectors and fans. Team Kamen Rider brings us three (3) new collectibles for US release, and we want all the fans to know what's coming out.

    Legend Belt Series

    This line of Henshin Belt recreates the look and henshin sounds of the belt at an affordable price point. This line uses simple mechanics and a press of a button to activate the sound effects, compared to the DX or Complete Selection Modification line. Earlier in the year, the first two of this revived line are Legend Henshin Belt - Typhoon, from the original Kamen Rider, and Legend Henshin Belt - Arcle, from Kamen Rider Kuuga. Two more Legend Henshin Belts were recentlyannounced, and they are Legend Henshin Belt - Faiz and Legend Henshin Belt - Fourze. Both new belts are estimated to release Dec 2021 - Jan 2022.
