The sister store to the Nakano Broadway Gallery Exhibit, aka Hakaba WEST, is continuing the celebration of the 30th Anniversary with another exhibition of art and new merchandise! Goods sold at the original exhibition back in October 2018 at Nakano Broadway will make another appearance in the Osaka branch. The event runs from March 6th, 2019, to March 21st, 2019!
And check out the new merch!
Top: a new t-shirt featuring Byakuen on the front, the logo on the back, and possibly the troopers’ insignias on the left sleeve!
Middle row, leftmost image: an acrylic figure featuring Arago and Kayura; this would match the previously released trooper and masho acrylic figure sheets.
Middle row, right two images: an acrylic diorama/backdrop where each of the figures from the acrylic sheets could be placed (Arago and Kayura are not included).
Bottom row left two images: ema with two different designs available.
Bottom row rightmost image: an eye mask!
Check out this lovely cup featuring the insignias of the troopers and masho!
On March 10th, 2019, there will also be a “special screening” of the most popular episodes, followed by a chat with Director Hamazu Mamoru and Okamoto Hideo, Armor Designer (cover artist of the 30th Anniversary Memorial Book). The screening is a ticketed event, and participants will be gifted with an exclusive “pen light” featuring their favorite trooper or the four masho:
I’m loving that the 30th Anniversary is still being celebrated!
The new merch is not yet available online, but some of the original merchandise from the Nakano Broadway exhibit are still available here (and I’m told the site does ship to the USA if the World Shopping interface is used).
Websites have started listing the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers TV Series DVD for pre-order. The retail price will be $59.95. I’ll update this list as more information comes in. Current sale prices are as of this blog post and thus may change.
Direct links may or may not work. I’m not sure if the URLs I’m finding are temporary or permanent. If the direct links do not work, go to each retailer’s main page and search for Samurai Troopers TV.
Remember that this DVD set is Japanese language with English subtitles only. Discotek Media is still working out issues for the license of the dub Ronin Warriors. If those issues are resolved, Ronin Warriors will come out as a separate DVD set.
