RPA Preorder: Tiger & Bunny: S.H. Figuarts - Barnaby Brooks Jr.

I really hope you guys have been watching Tiger & Bunny. I know I'm not an anime watcher but this show is actually pretty cool. Basically they  are people with super hero powers. The twist is that they are sponsored by big companies and the goal is to capture the baddies while earning points. You have to watch at least one episode. There's no excuse not to because it's free on Hulu.com.

Anyways, It took me a little while to start watching and when I did, I immediately felt the urge to buy some of the characters, especially Tiger. You see, Tiger is a good superhero but he is also one of the oldest, so he is not as popular as the younger superheroes. He tries to give away his Superhero cards to kids but they don't care about him. If he complains at work, his boss tells him that if he doesn't like it he can just quit. I can;t help but compare Tiger to myself. I always considered myself a pretty good drifter (the type where cars slide around) and I was pretty well known amongst my peers, but time went by, younger kids came out of nowhere ripping up the tracks and I started to feel a bit "old". So I developed a liking to this Tiger character. Unfortunately for me, I waited too long and his S.H. Figuarts figure is sold out EVERYWHERE. At least everywhere that doesn't double or triple the price. However, I did manage to snag his young partner, Barnaby Brooks Jr who Tiger affectionately calls "Bunny" because of the ears on his superhero costume.

Stay tuned for a future look at this figure.
