Following up on our reporting from Tamashii Nations 2020 on the display of previously revealed and newly unveiled Ultraman S.H. Figuarts, Bandai has also dropped a couple massive reveals. While these items are currently listed as “Display Only”, we have our very first looks at two new possible additions to the long running Soul of Chogokin line from two Metal Hero series!
First up is the one which began it all, hailing from 1982’s Space Sheriff Gavan is the Electronic Star Beast Dol Dragon and the Giran Saucer! While the prototypes on display do not currently give us a look at the combined Dol Giran mode, we can probably infer the transformation gimmick in such a comprehensive release as an SOC. As is, What we see on display is a magnificent set and gives us a great sense of scale, hewing very close to the size of the original toys based on the Tamashii Stages they’re displayed on.
And the second surprise reveal is the massive (and transforming!) planetary battleship Daileon from 1985’s Megabeast Investigator Juspion! Continuing the short lived tradition of the transforming Metal hero robo, Daileon changes from battleship to massive mecha. though we have less of a sense of scale for this release, we can see it does appear to included a small scale Juspion figure, as well as a tiny to-scale version of Juspion’s Garvin Tank!
As mentioned neither of these releases has even been confirmed for release yet, so there are no pricing or full accessory breakdowns to be known at this time. These could very well join the long list of prototypes locked away in Bandai’s vault. But for now, we hope to see much more of these two exciting reveals. Keep it tuned to TokuNation for more updates from Tamashii Naitons 2020!
