    does

    Does any one read Japanese, or just know what these repaints are supposed to be? I mean I understand this might be an attempt at fire looking stuff on the outside but is there another story tied into the little anime figures around them does anyone know?

    They're show exclusives, meant to represent the superheated re-entry modes of the characters as they come down to earth. The visual idea being gone for is that of the "glowing orange" nose trailing back into the halo of flame and superheated gas that surrounds them and comprises the tail.
