There are a few things going on with the Shin Japan Heroes Amusement World. It was revealed that, following the current events, additional events will be held in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, in March 2023, and in the Kansai region this Summer. Moreover, there are some exciting goodies to pick up too.
There is a new mini-game dubbed “Shin Soft Vinyl Factory” that will be available at Ikebukuro. In this so-called mini-game, you’d be able to win either event-limited metallic colored soft vinyl figures of the four “Shin” works or SJHA branding or the respective SHIN logo on acrylic.
The “Shin Sofubi (Soft Vinyl) Factory feat. Movie Monster Series” mini-game, which costs 1,100 yen (US$8.20) per play, is more like a 3D printing vending.
In this machine, you will choose the materials and place them in the machine to receive an unpainted vinyl figure of one of the four Shin works, or the aforementioned acrylic logo collectibles. It is like a 3D printing vending machine/gacha machine hybrid.
As mentioned earlier, there is a chance to bag one of the four Shin figures with the beautiful metallic paint job.
Speaking of the colors… the colors are related to a representative of the characters. For example, the Shin Godzilla is in red with reference to its fourth form which has red scales, purple for Shin Evangelion’s Unit 01, silver for Shin Ultraman, and finally, green for Shin Kamen Rider (Coat Ver.).
The figures stand 16-18 cm (6.3-7 inches) tall while the acrylic logo is about 7 cm square (2.8 by 2.8 inches).
In addition, figures of the 4 “Shin” works, including S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider [Shin Kamen Rider] (7,700 yen), S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla (2016) The Fourth Night Combat Ver. (16,500 yen), S.H. Figuarts Ultraman [Shin Ultraman] (5,500 yen), and Robot-Dou Evangelion Test Type-01 with Spear of Cassius (7,150 yen), each presented in the original event sleeve, will be available to buy exclusively at the event.
