Simply impossible to resist… Time to bleed your wallets!
I was disappointed Nitro+Chiral didn’t release a full set of Yu-pon style Sweet Pool chibis… but along with this completely new set of the four main characters from Sweet Pool, we also get new Togainu no Chi Shiki and Akira, as well as Lamento chibis of three characters.
Titie: Nitro+ Chiral no Mori (ニトロプラス キラルの森)
Damage: 5,500 Yen (w/o tax)
These new generation Kotobukiya one-coin chibis still comes with an illustration card each. The new feature is that their heads are now removable and can be attached onto any of the chibis in the series.
There’s a secret character in the collection and our guess is that he is Yukihito, a new character introduced in the Togainu no Chi PS2 version. There’s also a special “Regalia(?)” version of Akira, where he wears a striped Y-shirt. Not exactly sure how it works… does that mean we need to buy more than one set to get the two versions of Akira?
Update Oct 2009: Ok, its confirmed. Each box will have only ONE version of Akira (You &%$# $$$ blood suckers!) so we have to buy more than 1 box to get both versions of Akira. Btw, a cute feature is that the oversized T-shirt can be removed to reveal a naked Akira… well, that does give us more incentive to buy another box at least… doesn’t it? Lol~
There’s also an Animate store-only exclusive of the Akira figure. Read post here. I’ll update when more information is released.
Thanks to Sigma for the heads-up about the chibi’s being sold on eBay! Don’t panic cos preorders are now open at CDJapan and HLJ and they’ll be released in November 2009 ^^
