Ah, L'Armor

More new figures from Bandai-- this one's a unique new line.


Bandai announced a new line of figures at their Tamashii Nation event: D-ARMOR, a series of anime characters who normally ride mecha. But instead of being in or alongside their mechs, the mechs are being turned into armor that the characters wear.
The prototype shown at the event was Kallen from Code Geass, with armor derived from her Guren Mk-II mech. I'm not sure I like how near-chibi she looks (she also appears to not have a belly button), but it's kind of an interesting concept. I'll want to keep an eye out on it, but at this point I won't start saving up my money.

How about you?

Hey Kallen, how's it going? I see you have amalgamated yourself with your armor, how's that working out for you?

@cfatalis: I'm not sure-- anyone you have in mind that you'd like to see? Or really want to NOT see? ;)

Would it be too much to ask them to do one of Cornelia?

Thank goodness I don't have to worry about this being done with Gundam so much... most of the female gundam pilots wouldn't be described as "moe". Hot, maybe, but usually not moe.
