Happy Mother’s Day; enjoy a photo from the Kayako with Toshio Instagram feed:
Anyway, not much of note happened this week, so this will be short. Here’s what we got:
- 7-11 had an exclusive repaint of Bandai’s Movie Monster Series Kiryu figure in Evangelion Unit 1 colors. Limited to 4000 figures, of course it sold out immediately.
Sort of reminds me of Gigabrain’s Jet Jaguar Unit 1 repaint, also a pain in the butt to track down:
- The Shimizu/Shimoguchi manga version of Ultraman Ace is getting Figuarts treatment.
- The writer of Dragonball Evolution has issued an apology to fans of the franchise. Good of him to own up to it.
- Lastly, RIP to Isao Tomita, music composer for Prophecies of Nostradamus, Mighty Jack, and many, many Osamu Tezuka adaptations.
That’s it for this week, actually. Seeya later!
