The new Tokuban was relatively mild this time, but it doesn't mean there weren't a few interesting details!

There were a few small things that deserved a bit more of a look to them...

First up, a preview of the new art being made for the cover of the Digimon Tamers BD-Box. This will be the art that features on the box to the set.

The artwork is being drawn by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, who acted as character designer for Adventure, 02, Tamers, and Frontier.

It appears for Tamers he decided to do a take on the covers for the Adventure and 02 boxes, but since it's no longer an ongoing plot, swing the cover around to a different angle for a unique take on the style of cover we've previously seen for the BD-Boxes.

The lineart is quite great and when finished it should really look amazing.


Pre-orders are available for the Digimon Tamers Blu-ray box. It will be available April 3rd, 2018 for 53,800 yen. Early versions of the box will include a new Tamers audio drama written by Chiaka Konaka.

Next up, a preview of figures we first saw two months ago...

Color versions of the upcoming Digimon GEM siblings figures!

They look quite good, and hopefully we get some even better photo previews of these soon.



And last but not least...



It's a small shot, but our first real look at the box for the upcoming Digivolving Spirits figure of MetalGarurumon, which appears to feature new art by Kenji Watanabe.

Much like the WarGreymon box, the artwork appears to be drawn to represent the character as he appears in the toy, rather than a more generic version.



Digivolving Spirits MetalGarurumon is currently scheduled to come out at the beginning of 2018 and can still be pre-ordered (affiliate links.)

In addition to the preview of the box from the Tokuban, Digivolving Spirits is also featured in the new issue of Figure King magazine (No. 236.)

The previews of the first 4 figures we saw from the Digivolving Spirits line shows some of the excellent design work on the figures done by Plex (a design firm owned by Bandai.)

One nice detail is the design documents still have the dates on them, so we can see how far back some of the work was done compared to when we saw prototypes, etc.



Just a handful of neat previews of things we will be seeing next year.



Thanks to deji_takehika for the GEM snapshots and Loopaza for the Figure King scans.

I'm kind of disappointed with the choice in characters for GEM statues. We already have two statues each for these characters. I'll forgive them if they make a Lee and Suichon statue though, lol.

The art for the figures and all that concept stuff is nice though.

Oh man those Digivolving Spirits breakdowns have me so excited. Alphamon even has a weapon, which is amazing! And Diaboromon might just be one of the best transforming figures we've seen to date.
