Kotobukiya's Twin Bird Strike Set & Linebarrels

Taking a break from the frenzy over Shizuoka Hobby Show 2008 to bring you some updates on two future releases from Kotobukiya.

1/144 Twin Bird Strike Set: featuring the previously released 1/144 Wildwurger & Wildfalken in a combo set. Wildfalken comes with a new "Tesla Drive Expansion" backpack, and two linkable display bases are included to pose the two kits. Also, the packaging will feature Yuuzi Kaida's illustration.

Available in July at 7,140 Yen (inclusive of tax)
