    WHOA! A standalone Unkh release with awesome accessories? So glad I didn't pay up the bum for a TaToBa just for Unkh. But I can't tell, is he Exclusive? Part of me wants it to be Exclusive so I can actually acquire one without having to stay up every night until Amiami opens pre-orders.

    Uva is looking great and far more streamlined than his show counterpart.

    Uva is looking great. WANT.
    I missed Ryuki. He and Draggredder are completely sold on me. Looks like I won't need the Figma. WANT.
    Flipping love how ShaUTa looks. WANT.
    Amazon and Ichigo. WANT.

    Anyway, that Ankh is stand alone, eh? If I get an Unkh with my TaToBa, I probably won't care much for this. The Medals and popsicles are nice, but meh...

    Alright Bandai... give me Figuarts Stronger and I'll forgive you for all the pain I've experienced buying your Medals...

    Cant believe we're finally getting Amazon and Ichigo. Sick as some are with Den-O, we have the new movie to thank for bringing back Ichigo and giving them an excuse to release that toy FINALLY.

    As for Ankh, can someone get the text translated? Cause the photos only suggest new hand parts, it doesn't really indicate if this is a different release of the arm or not. I'm thinking it might be incentive extras for Shauta's first run.

    Well I think it says there is a price of 575 Yen so there probably will be some kind of individual release.

    That's 1575 yen and a release date of July. And THAT means, he's a standard release.

    Hmm...I guess I'll pass up on Ankh then (I was hoping he'd be included with ShaUTa. Oh well).

    Anyway, now that Ichigo and Amazon are on their way, would it be a safe assumption to think we'd get a classic V3?

    Ichigo, Amazon, Shauta, Ankh, Uva, Tajador effects, Accel Booster, and what will look like a second purchase of all the Ryuki Figures....

    God dammit. I may have to drop Transformers at this rate :lol 

    Thank god I've been keeping away from Den-O and Faiz figures or I'd really be in trouble.

    It was a rumor of what was going to be released next.


    I think I'm willing to spend money on that Ankh. They should have released him like that in the first place, though. Actually kind of annoyed that I went through the trouble of getting a first release of TaToBa now (he's not here yet), especially after hearing of all the qc problems.

    Want that ichigo as well, but I've got the First release, so it would be redundant to get this one. Maybe I'll sell the first to get him. hmm. Guess I'll skip amazon for now as well. Theres a lot of figures coming out to consider.

    So this is the coloured prototype/near completion model of the actual Ichigo from the 70s now?

    My God it's Awesome looking!!! He's now in my most wanted list to go alongside my KH2 King Mickey and hopefuly find a decent 2003 Astroboy figure with good articulation & paint look.

    The others look also spectacular!

    Also that sillohuete of Amazon also makes me jaw drop as well in suprise.

    I'm all for a Hibiki, but I'm still disappointed with three SHF versions of Faiz before one version of Kaixa. Unacceptable!

    THANK YOU BANDAI! How they intergrate most of Ryuki's gear into the Dragreder itself. Brilliant!

    What's the purpose of the normal Accel head that comes with Booster? Is it more accurate or something that will be from his W Returns movie?

    Man, I wake up this morning and there are tons of new pics. Kid on Christmas Morning feeling.

    Figuarts Ryuki looks great, looks like I'll hold off on getting the Figma Dragon Knight and see how it is(especially if Ryuki comes with that Dragredder). I definitely won't feel bad about double dipping for Knight, Zolda and Ouja(though I still have a chance to cancel on his preorder). I completely expect some of the second string Riders like Raia and Imperer to get exclusive treatment, so I'll probably opt for the Figmas on those.

    Figuarts ShaUTa looks good, as does...Ichigo. Wow, didn't expect to see him come up in the batch of pictures, but I guess with the 40th anniversary coming up they couldn't hold him back any longer. The standalone Ankh is nice looking, and the accesories are tempting, but I'm fine with my TaToBa freebie Ankh(for now anyway). Loving Uva and Accel Booster, definitely wanting both(though Booster isn't as high as a want cause I still need to get Trial first). G Den-O looks good, but not a huge want compared to the other exclusives coming up.

    Ryuki will PROBABLY be part of the whole "Figuarts DX" series which consists mainly of...Momotaros and assorted furniture.

    If he comes out as a stand-alone, I might buy it off some brave soul double-dipping on Figma and the Figuart if he/she finds the Figma superior. It wouldn't surprise me if the Figma version has the better build but with all the bells and whistles (AKA Dragreder) the Ryuki (allegedly DX) figuarts comes with, I'd probably settle for the Figuarts version. Its just the sheer genius of making the gear as removable bits of Dragreder that has me gushing. With that Dragreder alone Bandai has provided Shield,Sword and Shoot Vent features.

    Guess until the figure comes in hand, we'll never know how good it stacks up to the Figma. Also, the Mirror Monster/Gear storage feature might not work for all the Ryuki characters. I'd love to see a Figuarts Knight with accompanying Darkwing including an actual fabric cape for Knight to use.

    That genius is from what, 2001? The Contract Monsters have always been a weapon provider/storage for the Rider. Still nice to see it though. The amusing thing about the pictures of Ryuki is that comes off as a "What then, bitch?" to Max Factory. They waited till they got the 13 Riders out(they should be all out by then, even given the standard Figma 1 month delay) and then show off this bad boy. Especially with Dragredder front and center in those pics...also showing off they are giving more than one card to their Riders, unlike the Dragon Knights just getting their Final Vent cards. Leaves me really excited to see what they do for Zolda, since Torque only came with the bazooka Shoot Vent.
