Earlier in February 2023, Bandai Namco announced a new piece of Bleach Thousand Year Blood War merchandise. It confirmed Renji Abarai would join the Bleach SH Figuarts figure line. At the time, it didn’t even offer a silhouette as a teaser and only noted an August 2023 release window. Now the character’s been completely revealed.
Here’s a closer look at how this Renji Bleach figure turned out. He will come with his Zanpakuto Zabimaru. It is in its Shikai state for two of the poses. However, it also looks like he can also be posed with it in its sealed katana state. (It is unknown if there will be a full sealed form for him to “wield.”) There will be five face plates with different expressions with the figure. From left to right in the example, they let him display stoic, smiling, stunned, shocked, and angry emotions.

As a reminder, an Ichigo Kurosaki Thousand Year Blood War SH Figuarts model is also on the way. That is expected to debut in July 2023.
This Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Renji Abarai SH Figuarts figure will launch in August 2023. Pre-orders will open during the first week of March 2023. The new Bleach Thousand Year Blood War anime episodes and past seasons of the show are streaming on Disney+ and Hulu. Viz Media localized the manga.
