Legacy Collection what? It looks like Tamashii Nations is getting in on premium 1:1 scale replicas for a whole new subset of fans, specifically Metal Heroes. We’ve just gotten our first look at the upcoming Tamashii Lab Laser Blade! A lifesize replica of Space Sheriff Gavan’s signature weapon.
This surprising piece looks to be one of the most complex replica weapons Bandai has produced to date. Featuring an IR sensor, the Laser Blade allows you to slide your hand up the blade to “charge” it in the same way that Gavan does for his Gavan Dynamic attack. Whilst doing so the Blade lights up in sequence and plays the appropriate sound effects while also playing the series’ BGM!
The Tamashii Lab Laser Blade is set for January 2017 release for a whopping 16,200 yen. Currently it’s believed to be a Premium Bandai exclusive releases but we don’t have confirmation on that as of yet.
