Doraemon will come with 3 extra pairs of eyes, 2 extra expressions, optional cat ears, and several accessories: A half-appearing Dokodemo Door (or Anywhere Door), a half-eaten dorayaki, bamboo-copter, air cannon, and a "shrinking torch" (a torch used to shrink objects, or even enlarge them). A mouse is also mentioned as one of the accessories as well, but it is not seen in the picture
A shocked looking Doraemon. Perhaps he has encountered a mouse? ^^
Draemon pulling out the Dokodemo door, or Anywhere Door, from his 4th Dimensional pocket, which holds all sorts of gadgets he has in this handy pocket.
Next is the SH Figuarts Nobi Nobita. He does not belong to the Robot Damashii line because he's not a robot XD
Accessories are Bamboo-copter, Air Cannon, Michibiki Angel, Korobayashi, Michibiki Angel, Esper Hat, Cushion, Manga (some of them are not shown in photo).
He is also said to come with 4 expressions as well.
Nobita shows off what he does best - afternoon napping XD
Retail prices for Doraemon and Nobita will be at 3500 and 3300 Yen respectively. Both are set to be released in September.
Pre-orders are now available on online shops such as Hobby Search (Doraemon, Nobita) and AmiAmi (Doraemon, Nobita).
Bandai's Tamashii Nation line has been releasing some nostalgic stuff recently. Earlier their D-Arts line has some from the Digimon series as well as X from Mega Man X (aka Rockman X). I am not sure whether I will get Doraemon or not, but I know lots of people who miss the old school stuff will be happy to see it ^^
