Bluefin Brands and Bandai will have soon-to-be-released items on display at the Toy Fair, including Kamen Rider belts.
The NY Toy Fair is held at the Jacob K Javits Center in New York City, New York from February 22nd through February 25th, and is a large “industry-only” event that is not open to the public. At this Toy Fair, vendors show off their latest collections and never-before-seen releases to others in the field.
BlueFin Brands and Bandai will be having their biggest presence yet at this exhibition. They have released a statement confirming that they will be showing a wide array of their properties, such as: Mobile Suit Gundam, Star Wars, Godzilla, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, and Kamen Rider.
Some of the products being shown at the booth are expected to be new releases that haven’t reached the public US market yet. One item specifically mentioned to be on display at the event will be the newly announced CSM Kivat Belt from Kamen Rider Kiva which will be priced at $320 and will release to the public in April 2020. The booths will be landmarked with large display statues of Barbatos (Gundam), RX-78 (Gundam), Sailor Moon, Goku (Dragon Ball) and Godzilla.
An official Kamen Rider meetup will be held on Saturday the 22nd, with Team Rider from BlueFin expected to be there to meet fans. The meeting place is Midtown Comics at Times Square and folks are encouraged to bring their favorite Kamen Rider merchandise. A group “henshin” photo will be taken in Times Square and Team Rider asks for attendees to wear their best DX belt or driver for the picture.
