Gabumon Archive

  • Many moons ago, Bandai announced a ton of Digimon figures. Gatomon, the one I was most excited for, and even a figure of Tai! Yeah, finally getting to the humans. But that was back when they still had D-Arts, so you know how it went. We never got them: instead, Bandai did a million variations of WarGreymon and all the other mecha-y Digimon. Basically, what no one wanted. But things are finally, finally back on track, because at Tamashii Nations they showed off Figuarts ZERO of Taichi Yagami and Yamato Ishida! All grown up, and based on Digimon Adventure tri. Of course Gabumon and Agumon will be included. I wonder if we’ll ever see the revival of that Gatomon? [via 1up]

  • MegaHouse had figures at CharaHobby aside from the new Nami? Why yes indeed they did! Do you mean to insinuate that I wrote Nami up just so I could fulfill my lifelong dream of writing a post in Shibe?!?!? Wow such accusations. So uncool. Anyway, they didn’t really have a lot: Juuzo Okita and Makoto Harada from Spaceship Yamato along with Aladdin and a lovely figure of Nefertari Vivi that’s currently set for a January release. Oh and DIGIMON BOYS PAINTED HELLZ YEAH. Can you tell I’m excited and hope they do every cast member ever especially the mons? [via Akibahobby]

  • Whoo, scans. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but the week leading up to Wonder Festival always has me dreading scans. It means extra features (garage kit roundup and wishlist) on top of, well, the event coverage and we have three reviews to work on this week! So when I remembered scans were tonight I nearly cried. For real, ask Stephen. So, let’s just dive right in. Wow, such figures! So PVC! Wowwwww! Maybe I’ll just do every post in Shibe…
