Figure News: Update on Figma KOS-MOS, also RODO ROLLA DA

Figure News: Update on Figma KOS-MOS, also RODO ROLLA DA
06 Oct 2010 21:21:02

Hallo, everynyan. Today, Max Factory unveiled more information on a highly-anticipated Figma first unveiled waaaaay back in February. It's...



KOS-MOS, from the Xenosaga series! I honestly never could get into Xenosaga, and I'm gonna be blunt here and say that I know next to nothing about KOS-MOS. So please don't be offended if I get the names for her weapons wrong.


"Who touch my gun!?"

The first weapons would be a pair of huge gatling guns, complete with effect parts. However, the guns are rather heavy, so they include little peg-stands (unlike Black*Rock Shooter's separate stand-arm for her Rock*Cannon).


I see the Force is strong with this one.

Next up, we have the BigFriggin'Sword 5000, complete with fancy glowy blades. I have a feeling that six months or so after release, a lot of Figma KOS-MOS owners are gonna find that their figures have floppy shoulders from constantly holding big weapons...


"SASHA!"

The two weapons can also be used in tandem, albeit with the glowy-blade removed. In addition to all of these weapons and the usual hands/stand, there are alternate faces (including one with blue eyes, which I'm assuming is a reference to the games) and a hairpiece with a robo-eyepatch. Preorders for KOS-MOS open tomorrow, and she'll be out in February. Because of all the huge weapons, she'll have a 4800-yen price tag like Love Machine - is this dissuading anyone, or are they interested in the character or her accessories? Of course, if you need more over-the-top finishers, how about...


RODO ROLLA DA!

From JoJo's Bizarre Adventure comes this papercraft model of the road roller! It's a papercraft model that you build yourself, but it's made out of sheets of plastic (with some ABS parts like the steering wheel) so that your S.A.S. Dio Brando can ride on it! Now you can recreate one of the silliest, but most undeniably awesome finishing moves of all time!



Anyway, this road roller will be in the 1/12th scale, meaning that S.H. Figuarts, Figmas, and some Revoltechs can get in on the ZA WARUDO action, too! The set releases in December - hopefully, they might reissue the original S.A.S. Dio (my holy grail) to go with it. WRYYYYYYYYYYY!

I might get KOS-MOS but then again I don't know. I enjoyed the first game until I got stuck at a boss with no healing items and no way to ge more (This seems to happen to me in most rpgs ;_;).

And I would have gotten the road roller if it wasn't so expensive.

Ah, yes. The story of my life, as far as RPGs go. I never could beat that newt-glider-thing in FFIX...

Also, I found out that the road roller is actually made of sheets of plastic, not paper. So I don't think it's terribly overpriced given the size of it, but I'm gonna wait 'til reviews come out to see how it looks assembled before buying. Or I may just throw it in with my December order (Figma Love Machine, Figuarts FangJoker reissue) for the hell of it - it looks like it'll be really light and easy-to-ship if it's shipped as unassembled sheets in a box.

Hmm... that seems better but I think I'm still going to hold off on it for now.

I've got nothing else lined up for February, and she looks great. As long as a crapton of stuff doesn't get slapped with a Feb release then the price doesn't bother me. She seems like a major space hog though, so she might be trapped in the box for quite some time until I can be somewhere with shelf space.

Definitely considering KOS-MOS. Her accessories are ridiculous. Too bad it doesn't look like they've implemented her X-Buster weapon.

Ugh, her face...is it just me or did they use the same face sculpt from Aigis? Oh well, the BFG's are a nice selling point.
I love plastic crack

So turns out she does in fact have her X-Buster parts (separate body part). Yay!
