Shodo figures have been relatively easy to import, with the figures even not being that hard to find outside of Japan via affiliates of Bandai in various countries.
The first wave of Shodos will get quite a bit easier to find soon though. Bandai America will be selling them in new English packaging (we only have images of WarGreymon at the moment.)
The initial release will be wave 1 with WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon, and Garudamon.
The new packaging features the US logo and window-boxing for the figure. Theback features the figure, the associated crest, along with a short description in English and Spanish, along with showing off the full wave.
They figures themselves appear to be the same as the Japanese release, with one specific difference... These are being sold already in one piece. The Japanese release came in pieces so the packaging could be smaller. They weren't model kits, and people sometimes had issues snapping the joints in, so getting the figures already complete might be of interest to more than a few people.
They ship next month and pre-orders are available at Amazon for $15 each: (affiliate links)
WarGreymon is available to pre-order from Australia at EBGames for $40, being released in March(also the image source for the new packaging.)
Thanks to extra_ramen for the heads up and lostintranslationmon for making sure we had seen it.
