Yamato's Die-cast Shield Liger Updates

Not much news on the last day of the month it seems. ^^;

And not much news regarding Yamato's non-scale die-cast full action model Shield Liger since its official announcement back in mid August. Here's a little bit of updates on its prototype design.

A large volume of die-cast material is used for the model. All the silver parts on the leg as shown in the first image are made of die-cast material. From the initial announcement, we know that 80 out of 200 parts of the figure are die-cast. It's reported that the entire figure will weight 1.8kgs.

The blue portion is either ABS or POM.

The silver fins on either side of the head as shown in the second image are made of die-cast material as well.

December release, 18,690 Yen (inclusive of tax).
