Not a week has passed since the battle for Wild Tiger MG Figure Rise and once again we have an announcement from Tamashii Nations regarding the upcoming pre-orders for Chibi-arts Barnaby Brooks Jr., S.H.Figuarts Lunatic, and Half Age Characters set. The pre-orders will open on April 3rd at 16:00 JST as usual. I don’t think I need to say how hard this battlefest is going to be with three “Do Want” items going up at the same time.
Lunatic’s figuarts comes with some great accessories – a set of flames for his eyes as well as his hands, and a flaming crossbow. The crossbow can also be folded and placed in his holster. His cloak also seems to be removable. Lunatic is going to be a standard release retailing for 4,725 JPY with a July release date.
Chibi-arts Barnaby Brooks Jr.
Barnaby’s chibi-arts will include: At least two different facial expressions (tsun-tsun face & smiling winking face), and his pink birthday bunny. I am still checking various sites to get more information regarding his packing and price. The most current information that I have been able to obtain is that Barnaby is expected to be released in July.
Half Age Characters Vol.1
The Half Age Character box vol. 1 will include five characters: Kotetsu T. Kaburagi, Barnaby Brooks Jr., Ivan Karelin, Karina Lyle, and Nathan Seymour. The Half Age Character line portrays the characters younger than their actual ages. The box will include 10 figures. There has not been information yet if the second set will be a different color variation or a double. Each individual each Half Age Character will retail for 525 JPY. The box will be released in July.
Is everyone prepared for this triple threat battlefest? I will have my GOOD LUCK mode armor on and my finger ready for the repeat F5 attack. One thing is for sure, this battle is going to be very tough.
DAMN. that Lunatic figure…! the flames and crossbow alone make it so worth it. get ready guys, it’s going to be another bloody week for all of us.
Waaah! That Barnaby chibi is so damn cute! And Lunatic looks freakin’ awesome. What I wouldn’t do to buy the both of them…
Sadly, I’m totally broke T_T
Lunatic, any doubt I might’ve had in the slightest about whether or not I’m getting you… totally just burned into dust. Awesome. Thanks for the updates and infoooo~! Much appreciated. ❤
Thanks for the updates! The Half Age Character figures are adorable enough that I’m going to try joining this battlefest. ;A;
Does anyone have recommendations for reliable websites that ship to North America that would carry the Half Age figures? I’ve never bought figures before so any help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
Ruru – i’m in the same hemisphere as you. when all the usual outlets run out, i get mine at BBTS –
just wait a day or two for them to show up. they’ll probably stock them as soon as PreOrders go up.
Thanks for the tip! I’ll be missing the preorder time afterall, so good to know about the alternatives! D:
just saw they’re now up on HLJ – go for it!
Ahhh thank you so much!!! I placed an order just now, hope it gets through! 😀
AmiAmi never re-stocked the figures yesterday due to the storm. There might be a slight chance that they might do it tonight.
Last night was crazy. I didn’t even get a chance to tweet the HS or AmiAmi links for Lunatic and Barnaby. They sold out so fast. The Half Age Chara. figures lasted a bit longer.
Yeah, I didn’t have time to tweet either, I was furiously trying to purchase chibi-arts. I never made it through the check-out with it until I found it in Big in Japan.
for everyone who lucked out on the PreOrder war:
Lunatic finally showed up at BBTS –
Chibi arts Barnaby just got posted as well –
and the Half Age set showed up, as well –
still no sign of the MG fig at BBTS…
