The Japan Expo 2014 in the “City of Lights”, Paris, France, is currently underway and the event featured an advanced screening of Sword Art Online II’s first episode, cosplay, Japanese music and figure displays from some of the biggest names in Japan.
As Paris hosted the event, Bandai and Square Enix displayed some of their upcoming merchandise and they certainly turned a lot of heads. Let us begin with Bandai who displayed some of their best figures from some of their most popular figure lines. Here we have their Super Robot Chogokins, Getter One and UFO Robot Grendizer.
Their high-quality Soul of Chogokin line were also on display. Here is the Arcadia from the classic SciFi anime Space Pirate Captain Harlock. This Soul of Chogokin is scheduled for release October 2014 and will cost 28,000 yen.
