We found out about the Digital Monster Original Art Reproduction a few weeks ago and it's been mostly silent since then.
Well pre-orders are open and we have details and images for this fancy new item.
The product is a high quality art print of new artwork by longtime Digimon designer and artist Kenji Watanabe.
The artwork itself features the 14 Digimon who were in the original Digital Monster V-Pet release. The artwork features them breaking out of the original brick red V-Pet.
It comes framed in medium density fibreboard, along with string material to hang it with.
The dimension are roughly (in inches): 12.5 wide, 17.2 tall , .6 deep
Sample images also show a plaque on it, along with that they will apparently only be making 256 of them.
They also include an interview with Kenji Watanabe that we will translate as/if time allows.
In addition, as a bonus for buyers, they will also get a postcard featuring an early rough version of the artwork. (No full image of that for now.)
Pre-orders for the Digital Monster Original Art Reproduction are open now at Premium Bandai for 38,500 yen. They ship in August.
Update- Premium Bandai is either currently having issues, or it sold out in just a few minutes.
Update- It is looking like they did in fact sell out that quickly. It's possible some intermediaries got orders in and may have them on their storefronts though.
Very nice looking... and expensive. A bit of a unique item for anyone who has the money though.
You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.
Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.
