As you know, there's a fundamental shortage of Scopedog toys on the planet. Max Factory seeks to remedy this with a new line.

The line doesn't have a name yet, but it's 1:35 scale, highly detailed, fully poseable, and each comes with a pile of accessories. Scope Dog is first out the chute in January, followed by Bloodsucker, Strike Dog, Standing Tortoise, Red Shoulder Custom, Turbo Custom, and Brutish Dog. They're about ¥3,500 each.

Remember the mysterious modular Yamato featured recently in the trade rags? Sold in eight candy packs (¥500 per pack), the fifteen inch long "Yamato Mechanic File" made an appearance fully assembled, although it looks outstanding broken into chunks.
