Perfect Piece Tachikoma

Tachikoma generally garners love whenever a new toy is announced. To test the level of affection out there, Megahouse is accepting preorders for a 1/20 scale Tachikoma which measures roughly 13cm tall and is crafted from ABS plastic. Metallic paint is used for the body to give the Tachikoma a shimmering sheen that is bound to catch the eye of collectors and woodland animals alike.

Features on the Tachikoma include rolling wheels under the legs, properly formed gun turrets, a pod which opens up to unveil the winsome Motoko Kusanagi inside, and claws that are molded to look like the claws we know and love from GITS. Pricing is set at Y9800 or US$95 from NCS and preorders are scheduled to ship in mid-late February 2007.
