Tomopop editor hopes nobody calls him out on really bad pun

Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Zetman (or just ZET?) is now available for pre-order.

Zetman / ZET comes to us from the anime/manga Zetman, where said character is an enhanced human who transforms into the demonic-looking ZET to kill mutated humans called "Players". While I'm tempted to watch the 13-episode anime (mostly because it's just 13 episodes anyway), I've already been enamored by the character design. Also, it's worth mentioning that this is the second Zetman figure seen this year, following Kaiyodo's Revoltech version (which had wings!).

ZET makes for a remarkably good-looking Play Arts Kai figure. The PAK jointing, so often an eye-sore, is barely noticeable in these photos. ZET also features a great head-sculpt and some solid body-work, giving the character a fair amount of definition. The only real flaw I see is what appears to be a rather glossy paint which gives the character a fair amount of sheen. Otherwise, Square-Enix has done some exceptional work here.

Play Arts Kai Zetman / ZET is billed as coming with an alternate head, a(n optional) tail piece, and alternate hands. I'm not sure why the figure didn't receive wings (Plot reasons? Cost?) although it doesn't seem a tremendous loss. ZET is slated to release in May.
