Figure and model company Kotobukiya will be releasing a plastic model kit based on the anime version of mecha Tsugumori from anime and manga series “Knights of Sidonia”.

Written by “Blame!” and “Biomega” creator Tsutomu Nihei, manga series “Knights of Sidonia” is currently being serialized in manga periodical Afternoon, and a TV anime version premiered in April. The model kit depicts the TOA Heavy Industries Type 17 Guardian Shiratsuki Custom Tsugumori mecha, piloted by main character Nagate Tanikaze, as seen in the anime version of the series.

The plastic model kit includes movable versions of all of Tsugumori’s parts, including his Higgs particle cannon, back-mounted booster, and foot anchors, as well as the anime versions of its Kabizashi, Vulcan cannon, and other weapons. The kit also comes with a custom base printed with the TOA Heavy Industries logo.

The model kit includes several different hand parts that can be changed in order to display the finished figure with its entire complement of weaponry. It is also capable of walking in quadruped mode, as seen in the anime series. One of the highlights of the fully-poseable figure is the included high-speed particle accelerator; measuring 122 centimeters, orders placed directly from Kotobukiya will be accompanied by an extension kit that can be used to make it even longer.

The 1/100th scale model measures approximately 200 millimeters tall, and totals 310 millimeters when the back-mounted booster is attached. It retails for 6,800 yen, plus tax, and will be released in October.
