Over the weekend, Tamashii Nations announced that they would be producing S.H.Figuarts Don Momotaro for sale later this year. For those unaware, the figure is based on the leader of the current Super Sentai series, Avataro Sentai Donbrothers. Don Momotaro is actually Taro Momoi (Kohei Higuchi), a blunt deliveryman who is unable to lie and can do almost anything. However, once Taro transforms into Don Momotaro, he becomes the exuberant fiery leader that sees every battle as a festival.
Now, the upcoming S.H.Figuarts release is follow up to the recently produced S.H.Figuarts Zenkaiser from Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger. Yet, while Donbrothers is Zenkaiger’s successor, the release is also a reference to Don Momotaro’s debut within the series. Also, restarting the S.H.Figuarts Super Sentai releases with the recent installments and characters is restoring faith with fans. Whereas, S.H.Figuarts Don Momotaro will contain his DonBlaster and ZanglaSword, but surprisingly, not his iconic fan. However, this is making fans speculate if that accessory will be a bonus item for a future S.H.Figuarts Donbrothers release. Nevertheless, below is the official gallery and content listings for the figure as provided by Tamashii Nations:
This figure will contain:
- Five Pairs of Optional Hands
Thankfully, like S.H.Figuarts Zenkaiser, S.H.Figuarts Don Momotaro is going to be retail release. The figure is currently scheduled to be released in October and it is priced at 7,150 yen when including tax. Whereas, pre-orders for this item will officially begin to open at online retailers tomorrow, May 26th in Japan. So, North America fans should get ready for item listings for this figure to go live later tonight. Anyway, stay tuned to Hero-Club for more news or updates, and be to use @HeroClub4Life to find us on social media!
