Off the jump, I need to ask you all to please bear with my over-nerding out. It’s Zone of the Enders news, so I can’t NOT be excited.
Not too long ago, Revoltech put out some action figures of Jehuty and Anubis, the focus mecha of the always amazing Zone of the Enders series. I recently got a hold of them at Comic-Con 2012, right about the time that I found out that there’s also a Vector Cannon Jehuty that I need to get my hands on but I digress. In an earlier post, I went on about how there has been a LOT of ZOE activity ramping up recently after a very long hiatus in the form of the release of the ZOE HD collection and the conceptual art for “Enders Project” shown back in May of this year. At TGS, Hideo Kojima, Konami and Revoltech continued building the hype.
Kojima tweeted these images of what look to be Naked Jehuty and Ardjet pre-production figures from Revoltech. Both figures continue the amazing attention to detail and high articulation for which Revoltech Figures are renowned. The Ardjet model is obviously in early pre-production, as it’s missing its paint but there’s probably no doubt that the finished product will look just as high quality as its predecessors.

Also, Konami confirmed via Twitter that the ZOE HD collection will be released on October 30, 2012 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which is a good two months before most anyone predicted. It’s priced at $39.99 and you can pre-order it on Amazon now.

OK, that seems to be the all of the ZOE related news for now. Thanks for bearing with me and partaking in the hype. I don’t know about you all but for me, October 30th can’t come soon enough!
