Bandai will once again be taking up a position at London's Comic-Con next week.

Following a successful first show last October, the firm will be displaying its latest toys, as well as new collectables from its Japanese hobby division at the event, partnering up with its video games arm, Bandai Namco Entertainment.

The Power Rangers Dino Charge series will be making its UK debut with costumed Rangers on stage for daily meet and greets. Visitors will be able to view of the new toys, as well as see a screening of the first episode ahead of its broadcast on Pop in August.

Big Hero 6 will be on display in a 'Hiro's Workshop' area ahead of its release on Blu-Ray/DVD on Monday, May 25th, while Hatch n Heroes - collectables which transform from egg to hero - will also be showcased.

Away from the Japanese collections, Bandai will be highlighting new creations in the Sprukits line, plus Monchhichi and the latest from its Japanese hobby division, Banpresto.

"Comic-Con is the perfect consumer event for Bandai and we're looking forward to expanding it this year," said Chris Pearce, product manager at Bandai. "Being a toy company with dedicated video games and Japanese import divisions complements us as a group, allowing Bandai Namco to hit multiple fans in one single place."

MCM Expo London Comic-Con runs at the ExCeL exhibition centre from May 22nd to 24th.
