Hmmm. Upon closer inspection of those CADs, it does seem to be made less for posing and more for PT. It even has those folding hinges at the wrists and the angled swiveling joints under the torso to transform the legs. Those aren't even in the line art and don't allow for waist articulation (in case Arcadia were going for a smaller affordable and fun Slave Maneuver Mode-only toy a la GN-U Dou line, which didn't do well, because they weren't that cheap to begin with and didn't transform, in which case we'll have to wonder why Arcadia would go that route again). Now if DOES transforms, that would explain why they went for die cast, at least on some critical parts.

Seems they are mixing the design up a bit too as It has the part II Proto-Garland body with standard Part I Garland head.

Honestly all we can do is wait for more product information from both manufacturers. Maybe one will be miles ahead of the other.. Only time will tell.

The Fewture one probably will be more glossy and have more diecast in it. And it's more stylized based on the photo of their sample. Whereas Arcadia will still have that original look but smaller this time since the original release that Yamato made is 1/15 and this time it's just going to be 1/24. But I have a feeling that they will improve it and make it sturdy since it's just going to be small. ;)

As of now, it's TBD/A. And yeah, I'm looking forward for a prototype as well. ;)

Hopefully it will lack the auto-destruct gimmick of the Yamato version.

Hmmm. Diecast. I wonder how much this one will cost?

I hope this is a little more affordable than that Future one was... (not holding my breath, it is Arcadia, do it will be pricey)

Gonna have to wait for the reviews on this one... I don't want to get my hopes up, but it looks great!

I just hope it's fun to play with and sturdy enough. I'm tired of High-end crumbling collectibles. I'm all about "user friendly" toys now. It seems to be "magnets free" this time and held together by pegs which gives me oh, so much joy! Freeing's E-X Garland also looks like a fun little toy, BTW.

I was hoping it'd be released and then put on black Friday sale.

I may just hold on to my pre-order for now, the revisit it again in April. I would some more information on the Arcadia version though.

Wow! I didn't noticed the markup. It was under 350 when I preordered it and even then it seemed too much. I could pass up some of the flaws, like the Shogo figure being subpar for today standards, or the torso sitting way too high (plus all the small design issues a toy this complex is bound to have), but not at 350 bucks.

It's not a markup actually. Ever since the PO opened the price at HLJ is Y37810. The original price announced was Y39800. Here's the original discussion from the Fewture Garland thread:

Some official pictures and a 39,800 yen price tag.

I don't know what anime this is from but those lego carriers intrigued me more than the garland itself. Carry on.

Front view of the carriers. For a moment i tot it was an arcadia tie-up with lego, but i suspect its just a custom lego since its Wonderfest!
