Star Driver has become one of my favorite shows this season. It reminds me of Code Geass, only with the FABULOUSness turned up to eleven and the mind-games replaced with silly fun. As such, it made me really happy to see Bandai unveil a Robot Damashii of the Tauburn.
Sparkles sold separately.
The Cybody of choice of the Galactic Pretty Boy Takuto, the Tauburn has a distinct maccaroni vibe that sets it apart from the big, bulky mecha usually seen.
Your galaxy will shine!
The figure also includes a star-shaped Tamashii Stage, as well as Tauburn's dual rapiers.
"I can wield cocktail sticks to deadly effect."
While preorders aren't up yet, Bandai has the figure currently scheduled for a March 2011 release.
"This hand of mine is burning FABULOUSLY! Its roar tells me to dazzle you!"
Continuing the Bandai announcements, Bandai is continuing their Medicom-tag-team Project BM! series with Kamen Rider OOO.
This fully-posable, 1/6-scale figure has pretty much every detail physically possible - the medals are removable and everything. The only thing absent is the hopper Batta legs, but that wouldn't work on a figure of this size anyway. OOO ships next June.
Yup, just countin' the medals one two and three...
