Landmate / guges kits

Post by Hydra Mirage » Tue Aug 17, 2004 1:35 am

Has anyone ever seen a Guges kit or figure ?
It seems strange considering how popular Appleseed is AND the new film. But no kits of the Guges ?

Of course, that kit you posted the link for isn't from Appleseed. Its very similar, but its actually from a video game Shirow did design work for. Its covered in some detail in Intron Depot 4.

As for Landmate kits, there's supposed to be a high-end, super-articulated, high-priced Landmate action figure coming out soon from... who? Yamato? Toynami? Someone like that.

Here's a pic for ya. It is indeed coming from Yamato. And yes, its based on the new movie.

Here's a link to another website's forum. In the thread is a photo of Yamato's prototype for a transformable Garland from Megazone 23:

Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou !!!

I managed to pick up a yamato Duenan figure when I was in Japan a few month ago, really beautiful model, fully jointed and painted like the new cgi anime.

I can't wait to get the Guges, plus they have an Eswat version and Duenan's version aswell ! Yeah !!!
I hope these models open up to reveal the pilot.

If anyone hears of a release date for these figures or anymore photos on the web please post here

If you look at the bottom of my original link you will see the Appleseed section - there should be at least one Landmate there for you.

Didnt intend to mislead with the pic just put up the quickest link I could find.
