    Fans need wait no longer because tonight BANDAI NAMCO Collectibles (Bluefin) officially drops this year’s collection of anime and kaiju San Diego Comic-Con exclusive figures. For 2020, Bluefin, the BANDAI NAMCO Group company and leading distributor of Japanese toys, collectibles, novelty and hobby products in North America, is offering nine different figures from the Dragon Ball and Godzilla franchises across five of the most popular figure lines from Tamashii Nations and Bandai America.

    “With San Diego Comic-Con happening virtually this year, we’re excited to offer our 2020 event exclusive to the general public for the very first time,” said Adam Newman, CMO of Bluefin. “This collection of Tamashii Nations and Bandai America figures together with a to-be-announced second drop will be one of our largest line-ups of Comic-Con exclusives ever.”

    Starting at 9:00 pm Eastern tonight, fans can pre-order SDCC 2020 event exclusives from S.H.Figuarts, S.H.MonsterArts, FiguartsZERO, Dragon Stars and the Final Blast Series. All nine figures and an exclusive metallic version of Dragon Ball Tamashii Stage are in limited quantities and are expected to sellout quickly as this year’s Bluefin exclusives are open to the general public and not just SDCC badge holders. The Tamashii Nations figures (S.H.Figuarts, S.H.MonsterArts and FiguartsZERO) will be available via the Premium Bandai website and the Bandai America figures (Dragon Stars and Final Blast Series) will be available via Bluefin’s consumer website.

    Bluefin’s first drop of 2020 San Diego Comic-Con exclusives are as follows:
