Posted: 2020-08-30 21:00:47

 Goodsmile has posted a blog going over some more photos of their upcoming Hagane Works Blade Liger, scheduled to release in November for 27,900 yen. While the release date is a ways off, the pre-order date is only until September 2nd, so if you were planning to pick up this kit, make sure you submit your pre-order by then! We have this kit linked down in our pre-order table at the bottom of the home page, to AmazonJP which seems to have the best price so far. I am not sure if the deadline applies to other sites like AmazonJP.

- GSC's Hagane Works Blade Liger!

 We have news on the Good Smile Company's Hagane Works Blade Liger! The kit will be released in November 2020, for 25,364 yen. The product weighs approximately 630 grams (before packaging) and has a total length of about 370mm. Surprisingly, it comes with the Attack Boosters already included! And there's no mention of pre-order or store-exclusive items, meaning you can pick your store of choice.

 To brush up on older details, Hagane Works is a relatively new line from Good Smile that focuses on part plastic (ABS), part diecast metal (zinc alloy) figures. The product line spans multiple series, so we may or may not see more Zoids. This could easily be a one-off. The figure is 1/72 scale, and will come fully painted. It'll also include 2 generic soldier pilots, with a double-seater cockpit. Since this product uses ABS plastic, please avoid pour-type pens for detailing, as they've been known to damage ABS plastic.

 This kit is still hitting stores for pre-order, and can only be pre-ordered until September 1st. This is because the product is being created-to-order, meaning they are basing the number of figures produced on the number of pre-orders received. So make sure that you can afford it before placing your order, as after that, you may not be able to cancel it! You can probably find it at your store of choice. Amazon JP seems to be the leader in best price Vs. shipping ratio right now, averaging just below retail after shipping.



 

Hagane Works Blade Liger Figure!  [Official]


Posted: 2020-02-12 04:46:52

 During Wonderfest we learned that the Good Smile Company, known best for their Nendoroid series, will be releasing a huge Blade Liger action figure as a part of their Hagane Works line! This is a brand new series of figures with only two other products released prior: The Demonsbane mech and a related additional parts set. As such, it seems Hagane Works will span various series. The standard so far (from what little we know) is that these are large, fully painted, part plastic -- part diecast metal poseable action figures.

 The Blade Liger's price is unknown, and although it was mentioned to be 1/72 scale, viewers of the figure at Wonder Festival noted that it was closer to the size of the Yamato Shield Liger. Which means it'll actually be larger than the traditional Tomy kits. It has an esthetic close to the anime Blade Liger, with a proper number of slats to the Shield Generator, narrower fangs, and a double-seater cockpit. It comes with 2 pilots, which seem to be standard Republican pilots, not existing characters.

 In the reveal image we can see bits of diecast metal along the body. For the Demonsbane kit, this was cited to be almost a full pound of diecast, so this kit will come with a significant heft. Interestingly, the kit was also announced on the Good Smile US twitter, although it is possible that this twitter account also covers big reveals from the Japanese side of things. There is no confirmation yet if it will come to the US, but that would certainly save on shipping.

 Price wise, we do not have a confirmed cost. Our only reference is Hagane Works' previous figure, the Demonsbane, which cost roughly $160. The additional parts set for Demonsbane was roughly $40 ~ $50. This isn't a bad price, considering Good Smile is known for high quality, beautifully painted products. It's worth noting that they are also known for having pre-order bonuses for ordering directly from their store.
