Some Digivolving Spirits previews!

Image Thumbnail (custom) Image Thumbnail (custom)

Tamashii has put up some Digivolving Spirits previews with some behind the scenes details (with Target Nishizawa cameoing in a few images.)


First up, shots of the various figures that have been announced for release at this point- WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon, Diablomon, and Angewomon.

They mention the Diablomon is a color sample from the factory where the figures are being made.

These are test shots of Diablomon showing which parts will be die cast metal.

They mention that he can be posed to stand on his own, but they ask that you use the stand for long term usage.

This is the color sample from the factory. They're still doing adjustment on colors, texture, and a few touch up details to the mold itself, but they feel this one is near final. They seem very proud of the range of motion he has on his arms and legs.

They took the Our War Game Omegamon Figuarts and posed him with Digivolving Spirits Diablomon for fun. They mention it's bigger than Figuarts figures, with the size being closer to the old Super Evolution figure line.

Packaging! They show off the first preview of Kenji Watanabe's artwork for Diablomon's packaging. The artwork in the preview is an early rough illustration. They mention that MetalGarurumon's packaging is nearly final.

They also point out that WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon are both facing left, which, based on how you place the boxes, means they can have a showdown with Diablomon.

They show that each package will have a few previews of the next figure in the line.

The figures are currently on display at the Tamashii Nations World Tour stop in Barcelona at the Fira Barcelona Montjuïc (Salón del Manga de Barcelona) from until November 5th.

They also mention there will be Digimon stuff shown off at Megahobby Expo 2017 Autumn, which is November 25th.
And then shortly after there will be a 'Monster Booth' at the Tamashii Nation 2017 event at the Akihabara UDX 2F Akiba Square and Bellesalle Akihabara between December 1st and 3rd.

I remember reading somewhere before that these are not going to be limited items, but will be mass produced. Anyone can confirm for me?
I will be going to Japan next year, so I might as well wait and buy them all together if they are not limited.

Oh shit, I'm going to Salón del Manga tomorrow, didn't know they were going to be there. I'll see if I can snap some photos of the figures.

Watanabe art up close is such a blessing, that I would buy the empty boxes.

Yup, the hype is real. Now I want a more to scale Omnimon figure.

As said, Alphamon is next. Unless they've changed their plans after the initial information given there won't be an Angemon. It'd be Patamon to HolyAngemon instead.

Got to say, although they all look good, the Wargreymon seems to be a slightly lower standard than the other four. I'm not sure why he has such obvious back kibble when the original 90's toy didn't?

Those are really nice. Maybe if they make another after Alphamon we'll get a Patamon figure.

...why all the toys I want come up for sale at relatively the same time?

The Dark area.
Ooh these look really nice!

I'm still waiting on Alphamon though, I can assume he will be revealed/up for pre order either in December or in January right in time for my B day. I can't wait to have him preordered for my collection.

Meanwhile I'm curious to see if we will get more digivolving spirits that aren't from the first season. Here's to me hoping we might get a remade Impmon-Beelzemon figure cause he'd look incredible with some die cast metal parts.

That's evident from the low price. Wargreymon is about £36 minus shipping which is amazing for a transforming figure with die cast.

I'd imagine (and hope) they'd do Dukemon before Beelzebumon, considering the original has big problems with yellowing. I wouldn't count non-Adventure toys out completely yet considering that Alphamon was advertised as an X-Evolution character when he was originally revealed.
