    Is it me, or does BlitzGreymon's red color scheme make me think of ShineGreymon Burst Mode?

    These figures are all in fixed poses. No articulation unfortunately.

    Mind you if this does well, I wonder if we'll get a Figuarts or something down the line...

    I'm a bit torn on these... the rough texture that they are using for the figures works great for some of them but worse for others. I realize they are emulating the grungy style of the early artwork but even then it's an aesthetic that only looks good on organic designs. It looks fantastic on Meramon and the Agumon line but BlitzGreymon who is very much a product of the later sleeker and cleaner generation of Digimon designs just looks kind of cheap with it. Having this uneven and noisy look all over the metal parts that are clearly smooth and shiny in his actual design is a weird visual clash that I just can't really overlook. Airdramon veers in the same direction since his skin has been portrayed as being on the glossier side before... but it's not as distracting with him.

    The way they're doing this is actually pretty awful. 8 minifigures, 5 unique and 3 duplicates on HLJ were about 2500 yen. This is about 5000 yen plus middleman fees for 8 figures 5 of which are duplicates from previous series. And in terms of Digimon choices if it was just Greymon figures or just BlitzGreymon I'd understand, but if you want to complete the Vpet rosters without buying new 20th bigger figures like Blitz and Cres you need to buy these because Airdramon and Meramon are here and Whamon and Birdramon for the next. It's not even really high end collector figs, it's all gashapon toys.

    Wow. That Greymon figure is cool. Nice to see it. I was thinking about Cresent Garurumon next.

    Yeah, I saw.

    Honestly, there isn't much of interest.

    The most interesting thing is pointing out it's being sold via Premium Bandai because BlitzGreymon wouldn't have fit in a gashapon container.

    Which is a bit of a cop out of a marketing answer (although it's always possible it was a more detailed answer that was shortened for publishing.)
