If you thought that your November was already looking bad, Tamashii Nations wants you to be even more broke come the holidays. In the upcoming issue of Figure Oh Magazine, many of the new S.H. Figuarts and Robot Damashii were announced, including some unlikely picks.
I'll talk mecha first as I'm really excited over one of the announcements. Coming this November will be the pair of Gundam Sandrock from Gundam Wing and Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru's Evil Tiger. I'm not too familiar with Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru, so I'm obviously excited over the Sandrock. This Gundam was the first one I owned, and while they did release a Master Grade of it earlier this year, this is the Sandrock I remember and loved. Prices for the two when they come out in November are 3,800 yen for Sandrock and 5,500 yen for Evil Tiger.
S.H. Figuarts is also adding to the November madness with new announcements. Kamen Rider Super-1, which received an amazing S.I.C. last year, will now join the SHF lineup. What's great about this release is that he will feature the forearm parts for his 5 hands attachments; Super, Power, Elek, Radar and Hot/Cold. He'll cost you 3,800 yen this November, but the design and options are something to be wanted, even by non-Kamen Rider fans.
There's a lot more to talk about from this issue, including the largest (and most expensive) S.H. Figuart made to date. Check out the rest of the news after the jump.
Akibaranger might be done, but there's one last large piece of merchandise to be released. Announced a couple months back, the Itasharobo mecha is here. For those that didn't watch the series, the Itasharobo was the Akibarangers' car that would transform into their fighting robot. This is easily the largest Figuarts release to date, as it stands over twice the height of the SHFs of the rangers themselves and it transforms. If you're wondering the price tag on this, it's a healthy 35,000 yen. Yes, over $400 for a giant, transforming S.H. Figuarts.
Bandai hasn't forgotten its Persona 4 fans and you'll be happy (or dismayed) to know that Yukiko's Persona, Konohana Sakuya will be released in the D-Arts line this November. The cost to your wallet will be the sum of 3,800 yen and will thankfully not be a web-exclusive.
However, there are a ton of Tamashii Web-exclusives for the month of December. S.H. Figuarts will see the release of Deka Green for 3,675 yen, Pretty Cure HEARTCATCH Cure Sunshine Super Silhouette for 4,410 yen, Kamen Rider Fourze for 3,360 yen and Genosider for the sum of 10,500 yen. That's quite a bit of web-exclusivity, now to see what actually is made for the masses this winter.
