Hobby Japan & Tamashii Web's Collaborative Virtual-On Project?

Tamashii Nation is playing elusive again. ^^

Starting yesterday (June 18th), a banner was up on Tamashii Web with some indication of a collaborative project between the website and hobby magazine publisher Hobby Japan.

Some of the text you can see from the banner:
- 14年振りの"邂逅" - 14 years after the first encounter

- 夢のロボット・コラボ - Dream-like collaborative robot

Based on the design of the word "Ready" in the banner, some forums are speculating that Tamashii Nation is going to produce figures from "Virtual-On" series. ^^ Not sure how accurate that is, but more information will be revealed next Friday (June 25th).
