With the Tamashii Nations event going in Japan we have some new Digivolving Spirits info to go over!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

First up is our first proper look at the Tentomon figure first teased a few days ago.

Tentomon looks quite impressive, but no sign of AtlurKabuterimon yet...


It appears photos aren't officially being allowed for the Digivolving Spirits stuff yet (there is a stage event for Digivolving Spirits later today) so there are only a handful of shots at the moment. Update- Tamashii put up a better photo of Tentomon.


On top of Tentomon, we also have an image of a brand new prototype!

Dukemon!

The old transforming Dukemon figure wasn't terrible, but this looks far more impressive. At first glance it also appears they are ignoring the look of the original figure entirely, rather than trying to bring to mind the old figure (which they had suggested would be the future of the line after WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon.)


And last but not least... artwork for FOUR more figures!

The rest of the Adventure partners!

Patamon to HolyAngemon, Piyomon to Garudamon, Palmon to Lilymon, and Gomamon to Zudomon!


These four, while still early, would finish off one of the early listed goals of the line, which was to have the lineup from the end of Adventure.

Just based on the art, which shows kibble and other elements of the figure, they look pretty amazing and I can't wait to see how some of them look once we begin to see prototypes of them.



Hopefully better images later today after they do the Digivolving Spirits presentation.



Thanks to a Weibo user for some of the images and to Actar and a few others for the heads up on there being stuff to potentially find.

Update- Replaced the Tentomon image with a significantly better quality image from Tamashii.


As for the other announced figures in Digivolving Spirits...

WarGreymon has been released in Japan and has sold out at a number of retailers, whether additional stock will be made available later is unknown. US stock for release next month is still available. US pre-orders for MetalGarurumon have opened and closed intermittently, likely as they get updates about how many figures they will get, and are currently open.

#01 WarGreymon (Affiliate links):
Digivolving Spirits WarGreymon at Amazon USA
Digivolving Spirits WarGreymon at CDJapan (currently not available, may change)

#02 MetalGarurumon (Affiliate links):
Digivolving Spirits MetalGarurumon at Amazon USA
Digivolving Spirits MetalGarurumon at CDJapan

#03 Diablomon (Affiliate link):
Digivolving Spirits #03 Diablomon at CDJapan

#04 Angewomon (Affiliate link):
Digivolving Spirits #04 Angewomon


Alphamon was recently announced as figure #05, but there are no pre-order details for him yet.




Update- Cleaned up a detail or two above.

Director Kakudou posted a few photos of the display of figures that have been officially announced.

Update- The livestream is happening and they've shown a prototype of the box for Angewomon.

Included multiple shots of the box since there was never a 'great' shot of it shown.



Update- A test model of Angewomon to test materials and check the mold.

And photos of a VERY early AtlurKabuterimon/Tentomon prototype that was used to check the transformation.

And in insanely exciting news for fans of Alphamon...

So this dukemon is from the tamers seasson? I was expecting from X-evolution like it was with Alphamon
Also... There will be more Digivolving Spirits? I thought I would have Hack/Jes-mon in this collection of figures.

The most well-known version of Dukemon is from Tamers, not to mention that's the season he debuted in. Why would they give him X-Evolution branding?

they make figures based on popular mons that they believe most people will buy not based on season/movies

The use of Piyomon's head as Garudamon's wings - while very similar to WarGreymon in execution - is frankly brilliant.

Of the four, I'm most curious about how Gomamon's transformation will work.

I spot Guilmon ears as the part of the lege cape, can't wait to see the dismembered Guilmon on the back.

Yes I so called it on garudamon’s wings! But I can’t for the life of me figure out how they’ll do Gomamon to Zudomon. Probably use black magic.

YES! Dukemon!

Still a little disappointed that they're following through with the Child>Perfect rather than Child>Ultimate, but they all look so good!

Somehow I had a feeling they would be doing Gallantmon, or at least I really really hoped they would. The old transforming figure was pretty terrible (the sword was his tail!) but I have fond memories all the same. A new one is most definitely welcome. (or could it be Gallantmon -> CM? Does it specify Guilmon?)

Tentomon looking good, although honestly that's probably the easiest one to get right. I can kind of imagine most of the others, but Gomamon -> Zudomon is going to be fascinating to see the workings of.

Keep these coming. I'll take 'em all.

Adding info from the livestream to the news post.

Livestream just ended. Images are in the news post, but the news is...

The showed an Angewomon prototype, plus the box.

They showed photos of a super early Tentomon prototype.

They showed a prototype of Ouryuken which can become Ouryumon!

Has there been any indication whether or not the figures past MetalGarurumon will be available outside of Japan? I'd prefer to purchase them through Amazon where possible, but Diaboromon has been up for preorder in Japan for over a month now and has nothing on Amazon still.

The US distributor of Tamashii figures has Diablomon listed even though he doesn't seem to be up anywhere yet.

US based pre-order stock of Angewomon has shown up at a handful of places thus far.


Toy stores that do full imports like BBTS have stock of both from the Japanese release (the US releases are generally a month later.)

Ouryuumon has officially become goldimarg, though it's hilarious that he basically just hiding behind the sword.

I'm still really REALLY hoping we get a remake of the old Impmon-Beelzemon figure tho. The original one was not pretty at all.

Anytime I see that figure he looks like he's going to float away with his balloon head. It would be a good choice for a new figure.

Finally, we'll have a toy to honor all of OuRyuumon's memorable anime and other media appearances.

I feel design-wise AtlurKabuterimon will be the most underwhelming... At least comparing it to the Kabuterimon->AtlurKabuterimon of old.
I still cannot believe they chose to do Child to Perfect levels. It feels like so much needless work to make a transforming toy out of these levels. As impressive the whole feat seems it still feels unnecessary when there are so many toys to improve or make new like Birdramon->Garudamon or Ikkakumon->Zudomon respectively.
I really hope they make a new Omegamon toy too. Someone needs to battle Alphamon lol!
