 TOYS Ikaruga Hitekkai Ginkei Nuri Botoke - Import Model Kit Preorder $55.90

 Product Synopsis

   Ikaruga is making its way back to Kotobukiya’s model kit lineup with an updated color scheme and brand new decals!

One of the most iconic shoot ‘em up games, Ikaruga is known for its unique polarity changing system. Now, this system is being replicated in Kotobukiya’s model kit lineup with a Nuri Botoke version of Ginkei. The striking gold thread pattern is reproduced with new and improved decals. By increasing the ratio of high-gloss “GPPS” in the product material in the black runners creates a color closer to black lacquer, enablingt his Nuri Botoke kit to give off an impressive contrast between the gold and black colors.

   By building this plastic model kit to be geared towards advanced model kit fans, the details and forms that would have been omitted from a normal product are now faithfully included. The deployed/stored state of the small wing can be reproduced by reassembling parts, and the landing arm can also be reproduced by reassembly. Each pattern on the fuselage is reproduced with molding on the parts and decals.

   Also included is a special wreckage-like base made specifically for this Ginkei, drawn by Yasushi Suzuki, to add to the overall atmosphere of this model kit. The artwork on the packaging, also by Yasushi Suzuki, was also specifically drawn for this product.
Although the kit is only 155mm in length, it boasts the highest level of detail of any Kotobukiya plastic kit, so please enjoy this Ginkei [Nuri botoke].

   Total length is approx. 155mm.

   Preorders are welcome to ship in late March 2021 at US$68.90 per figure.
