Digivolving Spirits Wargreymon Details Revealed

Bandai Tamashii has updated their official website with new details for the upcoming Digivolving Spirits Wargreymon. 

The figure will be released in November priced at 7020 Yen and will surprisingly be a retail release.   The figure will feature die-cast and better proportioned molded parts that help the figure look better than the older figure designs.

Bandai Tamashii also provided a quick promo for the figure.

Next, the director of Digimon Adventure/ Digimon Adventure 02 Hiroyoki Kakudo and chief designer, Kenji Watanabe had this to say about the new toyline.

I’m filled with deep emotion to know that Digimon has been loved for such a long time and to see this new product series, the “Digivolving Spirits” coming out. It’s a nice surprise for me to be able to comment like this even 18 years after the first season of Digimon. I know everyone is excited about this new figure series, but I bet I’m the most excited.

Digivolving Series”, which was the memorable first transforming figures produced by Wiz Co.,Ltd., has been revived!
I’m really happy that this time we are able to fully commit to excellence and include all the details that were not in the previous series as they were made for children. Both of Agumon and WarGreymon’s proportions are so cool! I hope you like them!

Lastly, it has been revealed that the next figure in the line will be none other than Metalgarumon.
