Blue Fin ceases to amaze me with the maneuvers that they are pulling off when it comes to bringing over collectible figures from Japan to North America. Following up on another unexpected attack, it turns out that they are bringing over the S.H. Figuart of the Black Condor from Chojin Sentai Jetman. As for their reasoning behind bringing over a figure from a series that has never aired in North America, perhaps they were thinking that most North Americans might purchase the figure since the design might remind them of Joe the Condor from Gatchaman.
Though to be honest, I guess it was not too much of a surprise since they are also bringing over the Red Hawk, which will include the Penultimate Power from Akibaranger. If anything, it might increase the possibilities that we might get the Figuarts of the other three members in the future. However, we will have to wait for the other three to get announced and released in Japan first.
While I have yet to watch Jetman, I would not mind owning the figure since the bird-like designs compliment the suit designs rather nicely -- thank you, Gokaiger. S.H. Figuarts Black Condor will be available on November 2012 for the price of US $44.99.
