Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, events all around the world are suffering cancellation after cancellation. You’ve probably noticed that many have now made the leap from offline to online, and figure exhibition TAMASHII Features 2020 is one of them!
Held on July 4 and 5, TAMASHII Features 2020 showcased the amazing creations of BANDAI SPIRITS’ high quality figure brand TAMASHII NATIONS. Although the annual event has always been held offline, this year it became a fully online event that anyone could experience from anywhere in the world through virtual reality.
We at TOM News were lucky enough to visit the exhibition space in person, so here are some of our highlights for anyone who missed out or just wants to relive the memories! And if you find a special figure that catches your eye, simply click the link to learn more at the TOM Shop.

Here’s the exhibition hall, looking nice and spacious!
One of the highlights of this year’s exhibition was the IMAGINATION WORKS Dragon Ball Z Goku figure. You may be seeing double, but changing the single figure’s parts allows you to recreate the appearances of both versions above! Also, creations from the IMAGINATION WORKS lineup are larger than regular action figures, which means an increase in the level of detail and number of joints.
The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba section displayed this dynamic Figuarts Zero Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Zenitsu Agatsuma: Thunder Breathing figure.
Behold Tanjiro’s Nichirin Blade!
The impressive S.H.Figuarts Iron Man series.
The DYNACTION lineup’s Evangelion test type-01 figure. Don’t underestimate this Evangelion just because it’s a figure – it measures in at a whopping 400 mm.
A figure of Evangelion Unit-08β. We can’t wait to see it in action in the upcoming movie as well!

A life-size Crystal Star! Pick it up and you might just become a Sailor Senshi too…!
The S.H.MonsterArts lineup’s fearsome Rathalos…
… and the equally intimidating Nargacuga, from the Monster Hunter universe! It’s hard to believe that you can fully control the actions and poses of such life-like figures.
MegaHouse took part in the exhibition at the first time in this year, bringing us a figure of the one and only Kusanagi Motoko from Ghost in the Shell S.A.C._2045!
And to top everything off, Digimon’s incredibly powerful Imperialdramon Dragon Mode!
