I got my copy yesterday. No new mechanical art of any kind. There's a slightly recolored Viola but I don't think it looks very good. One of the Colus mortar headds (Mk II?) is shown slightly recolored but it looks so close to the original that it isn't a big deal.

Some older Nagano art is present towards the end. Nice to see but I had seen most of it before. There is a healthy dose of new character art and the planet maps are nice. I was pleased to see character art that is hard to track down in past books (like stuff that only appeared once in a color page of a manga volume).

I'll try to find time soon to grab the new images for Clotho, Atropos and Lachesis. The new character art would be great for some character profile pages. I'll wait for submissions/revisions.

Any scan requests?

I want Designs 1. If I get Designs 2, would I really need Designs 1?

No, I don't think you would "need" Designs 1, but I'm assuming if you are a collector like me, you would want a copy anyway!

To clarify;

Designs 1 covers the AKD and some minor stuff about Taika and The SATAN and the Kfil Imperium Cyborg Weapon. Designs 2 covers Colus and Addler. So they contain completely different material. So as a collector, yes you would need both Designs 1 and Designs 2 (and 3 and 4 later) to get a complete picture of Joker.

Really, I checked HLJ for Designs 1 and they were sold out. I guess I would have to look for it somewhere else.

I saw FSS Designs 2 at my local Kinokuniya last Saturday. I didn't get it but I did browse. Yeah, some old plus new art and character designs. I'm especially intrigued by two new fatimas which was obviously Egyptian and Orientally inspired.

The Oriental fatima was named Yang Gui which tickled me since the name Yang Gui belonged to one of the Four Legendary Beauties of China's history, lol.

LOL, its true. he did comment that these 2 Ballanche factory fatima are inspired by legendary figures, most probably he means Cleopatra and Yang Gui Fei. (BTW, for non-chinese - "Gui Fei" is not a name but one of the titles for the Emperor's consort)


ForeverFlawless - u won't happen to be from the "little red dot" too, would u? :p

Rubel>> If it's the same little red dot that's having a national holiday tomorrow......bingo!! lol!

Ah, I can't read Japanese but I thought I gleaned somehow that he based those two fatimas on historical figures :D I wish he'll do a Marie Antoinette inspired fatima....*super random thought*

got mine today ^_^
stock just came in today for kino in the little red dot
saw about a dozen or so copies
located at the illustration section (where the art books etc are at)

and due to the fact that today is national day (for little red dot)
kino had a 20% discount, thus got mine for SGD50.48 (normal price SD63.1)

saw this at the end of of the book.
