This Mini Release will see the return of a couple detail lined figures, in the form of Commander Sullkren MK II, as well as the very first detail lined Dark Traveler. These two figures also have brand new painted areas, some of which make their debut with this round. For the very first time (after nearly 7 years) , Travelers will have full production painted shoulders, shoulder tampos, bottoms of the feet, and fronts of the feet. Coupled with the painted areas on the tops of the hands, these two figures feature the most factory applied paint on a Traveler release to date.
On a related note, the gray colors of the new Sullkren and Dark Traveler are not exact color matches to the 2012 ZED wave, but do fall within the same family.
Also on deck for this Sunday is Argen MK XI, in his Black Metallic "Dark Argen" color selection. This look matches the recent Black Metallic Kabuto Mushi that TGB just released last week.
Last but not least is the Gold Noboto, or "Goldboto". Some of these escaped in the big February shipping process last month, and now the rest of the Goldbotos want to hit the road as well!
A complete detailed list will be up soon (the detail lined figures come with lots of extra parts- much like Hades did last month), but the quick list is:
Commander Sullkren MK II $12 USD
Dark Traveler $12 USD
Argen MK XI $12 USD
Goldboto $8 USD
I know that this wave comes right on the heels of recent Glyos related releases from TGB and Toyfinity, but sometimes the production schedule lands everything right in a row. We'll see how the response goes, as this Mini Release project is still a work in progress. The next big wave is planned for the end of April (Glyaxia), which we are still on track for. After that we're shooting for very small late May wave, then a restock of the Buildstation in late June.
Having these deluxe versions out and about has been a lot of fun, especially on walks outside. The detail lines add a certain depth of realism to the photo shoots, and remind me a lot of the old days. I've really enjoyed taking location shots as the seasons start to change again.
