People from PCF's golden-era might remember these beautiful treasures...

http://homepage3.nifty.com/studio-x/b_top.html

Well, according to a friend and some internet searching, I've just got a huge update for this!




To quote Big Finale back in 2005... "Fricking fricking fricking FRICKING YES!!" I was given the following link by a college friend tonight which made me jump for joy. "Max Factory" Big O, Big Duo, and Big Fau models might not be dead after all! The following picture really really makes me anxious for more information on whether or not these have actually been released in Japan or if they're slated for release soon.



Japanese translation would be appreciated. >_>

I really hope that this actually goes through and becomes a reality, since judging from our PCF archive and a picture copyright these prototypes have been in production since 2005 or maybe even 2002. I'm taking this sudden news with a lot of salt, but I still an really excited that I might be able to get a Duo and Fau for my Big O model (which I won at PCF! XD)

These models would be from the same people that brought us the small 3 inch models of Big O, Dorothy1, The Griffon, etc. Did some more digging for just Big O models in general (hoping to get another lead) and I found this picture which has a Big Duo the same size as my 8 inch model. I can't recall Bandai ever releasing a Big Duo in the "Anime Collector" series. More searching is needed methinks... but I'm staying positive.

OH what thaaa!!... Shocked....I haven't seen that picture since the good ole days at PCF....hahaha....that really is a blast from the past..I went on a scavenger hunt across the internet and crazy Japanese sites to find out more about those models waaay back during Big O's appearance in America. That would be awesome to finally have a detailed models like the ones in those pics for xmas...

AHHH HELL YES!  What GREAT news to recieve upon first entering this board!! Just a few months ago I  had been doing some deep digging through the Paradigm-City.com Forums and I found the MAX factory site.  Shortly after I saved all of the pictures the site was no longer working.  With this news, the link provided here, the site works again!!! This has to be a good sign.

So yeah with MaxFactory failing once again, there is now a surge of hope coming from-- BANDAI ITSELF!



The Tamashii Nation line apparently is one of Bandai's heavy hitters in the action figure world. Having a japanese student at my college translate it, we have just about confirmed that Big O is going to be in one of the production lines for 2009.
The following is some pictures of the prototype that was on exhibition when Bandai revealed the new model line up.  From the looks of things the hands if not the fingers themselves appear to be articulate, there are bay doors on the feet (woo Gryphon!), and it's very possible the neck's collar lifts up to reveal a cockpit.

The only figurine I would ever buy. It's tempting. The one in the opening picture was gorgeous.

We've got updates on the Bandai Soul of Chogokin Big O model!



The piston moves, the hands articulate, looks like hip anchors...


The price for this wonderful model. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 (not including s&h).\
The downside? Looks like you'd have to paint it. Undecided (See below)

*edit*
According to the following website the release date is slated for 11/30/2009. Pre-Orders are all over the place. And from the same description, it looks like the released model will infact BE PAINTED. (Link: URL)
Not sure how reliable the information is on whether or not it's painted... but this baby will be on the market.

Wait, its actually coming out? Like for real?

You're just joshing me right?

This is all just some elaborate scheme to shatter my hopes and dreams once more, right?

RIGHT!?!

No?

Oh.

Okay then.

And... ordered! along with the Nirvash Type Zero spec2. First time I've pre-ordered a figure with a deposit from that site.

Now for the five month wait.
