In addition to the Excalibur (the umbrella which resembles the sword), Avalon (the case which resembles the sheath of the sword) is also included.
Covers (blue and gold part at the bottom end of the 'blade') on the sword have to be removed before opening the umbrella and can be put back on after opening.
Limited production. To be released on 12th August this year, official retail price 10000 Yen (!).
Length of umbrella (Excalibur): ~105cm
Length of case (Avalon): ~82cm
Made of nylon (umbrella), steel (frame), and ABS (handle).
You can pre-order this umbrella at Hobby Search andf AmiAmi.
The umbrella does look quite cool when it's closed in its sword form, but 10000 Yen? That will sure hold back a number of fans I suppose except for a smaller number who really are willing to pay for the price.
