[UPDATE] Prepare your wallet for these Bandai pre-orders
Figuarts Zero, chibi-arts, D-Arts, and more from Gundam, God Easter Burst, One Piece, and Code Geass.
Bandai recently updated their web page with a slew of products that will soon be up for pre-order, some of which I'm sure you're interested in getting your hands on.
The ones that are sure to go quick are the newest Figuarts ZERO figures from One Piece. Continuing the expansive line up from not only this series of figures but also this title will be X-Drake and Basil Hawkins. If you prefer to have something a little more cute, then look out for chibi-arts Boa Hancock who will be riding along with Salome. You can choose to have her stand alone, coiled by Salome, or have her sitting on top. Various expressions and arms will be included. Also, chibi boobs.
For those who like robots, Bandai has a pair of poseable ones coming. The first is the <SIDE KMF> Guren Mk-II, the Knightmare Frame prototype from Code Geass. This Crimson Lotus features the Radiation Wave Unit painted in a metallic gray as well as the ability to extend. For accessories there's the Slash Harken as a separate piece and the Fork Knife painted in a metallic bronze color. Gundam 00 will put you to work with the Gundam METAL BUILD Gundam Exia & Exia Repair III. This Gundam is loaded for battle with quite the number accessories available including its shield, vulcan, and assortment of blades to cut you. Heck of a one-Gundam army.
The figure that catches my attention the most out of the upcoming releases for pre-order is easily the lovely D-Arts Alisa from God Eater Burst. Bandai has done an amazing job of making an attractive poseable figure. Granted I'm smitten by her outfit what with the boots, stockings, and an swanky hat. The hair and face also look fantastic as does every other bit of this figure. Oh, and I guess the boobs, too, but whatever. There are better things about this figure to look at especially her assault gun and long blade combination God Arc. Unfortunately, it looks like that's the only accessory Alisa will include. You can also choose to remove her hat to get a better look at her pretty hair so that's something.
Each figure will be available in March, 2013 ranging from ¥3,360 to ¥4.725 except for the Gundam Exia which will cost you the a hefty ¥15,750. No word when these pre-orders go up but you can expect it to be very soon. We'll keep you posted as soon as we find out as I'm sure those One Piece figures will go fast.
