Mentioned a bit about Revoltech and Gurren Lagann (new version) and ARX-8 Laevatein in the recent posting on Tokyo Toy Show 2008. Today we'll take a closer look on both of them

54 points of articulation and 37 drills on the whole figure!

A review on the 'normal' version can be found in this previous posting.

* Also reported on Gundamanic.

Good news for fans of Yoko. Looks like the rumors in April has been confirmed. Yoko will be released as a Revoltech Fräulein figure, while Enki will get the 'normal' version Yamaguchi treatment.

Enki is the best opponent for Gurren Lagann.

Looks gorgeous at the first glance. ^^ Will Boota be included?

According to Wikipedia, the release dates for the above Revoltech figures as below:
- Gurren Lagann Fully Drillized version - August 15th
- ARX-8 Laevatein - August 15th
- Enki - September 15th

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann has also be confirmed! The release date is the same as Enki!

Not sure if the price of this complicated figure can remain at 1,995 Yen (the usual price for Revoltech Yamaguchi series).

Yoko is still being listed as a TBA item, but surprisingly,

Nia is being listed as well!

I think this is Anti-spiral Nia, although the official name from the official site for her is Messenger Nia ...

... even though I prefer the 'normal' Nia more ^^

Then again, before the official announcement from Kaiyodo, nothing can be said to be 'confirmed'. So Nia's fans, keep your fingers crossed and hope that we won't be disappointed ^^

Not finishing with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, folks who are obsessed with the ultimate mecha can visit Wonder Festival Summer held in Tokyo from August 3rd onwards to pick up the resin kit of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Don't forget to pack your wallet with 39,990 Yen for him. ^^ Don't forget to buy the paints and tools needed to assemble and paint this kit as well.

As an event-release item, it's unsure if this item will be reproduced for the mass market after Wonder Festival Summer is over.

The scale is 1/∞ (infinity), which is an 'of-course' case. The actual mecha as big as the Milky Way XD
