It should be noted that the kit in the image has been painted. I'll add pictures of the painted version once they show up. But this is small-time compared to the big announcement.
Remember how Revoltech Yamaguchi #100 was another EVA-01? Well, #101 completely makes up for that. It's none other than Gunbuster! No images have surfaced yet, but Kaiyodo has confirmed that preorders will open this Wednesday. It'll probably look somewhat like the 2005 Kaiyodo Gunbuster, also sculpted by Katsuhisa Yamaguchi.
Kind of like this, only more posable and more awesome.
Knowing Kaiyodo, the Revoltech will probably be released sometime between April and June, but we won't know for sure until Wednesday. Also unexpected was an announcement from Medicos Entertainment regarding their JoJo's Bizarre Adventure S.A.S. line.
The S.A.S. figures of Dio Brando and his Stand The World were among the earlier releases in the S.A.S. line, and they never got reissued. However, there was still a ton of demand for the two (c'mon, it's Dio Brando we're talking about), to the point where they sold for upwards of 20,000Y in Akibahara. So I'm delighted to announce to you that Medicos will be reissuing them in March of next year! This calls for a celebratory cry of victory!
Anyway, the reissues are going to be for their original price of 3500Y (much more reasonable than $200USD), so people who missed these two (myself included) can breathe a sigh of relief.
So, is anyone excited about Revoltech Gunbuster, or the Dio/The World reissues? I know my body is ready!
