Update: Volks USA has announced this preorder project will be made available to Volks USA fans on October 20th!
Last night a rather large event took place in Japan: a concert by Squenix honoring the music behind NieR called: NieR: Orchestra Concert”. I’m sure the event was magnificent but what really inspired many was the grand reveal of the long awaited versions of2B and 9S.
Both are from a rather popular video game:
Nier: Automata is an action role-playing game developed by PlatinumGames and published by Square Enix. The game was released for the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows in early 2017, with an Xbox One port later in June 2018. Nier: Automata is a sequel to the 2010 video game Nier, a spin-off of the Drakengard series. Set in the midst of a proxy war between machines created by otherworldly invaders and the remnants of humanity, the story follows the battles of a combat android, her companion, and a fugitive prototype. Gameplay combines role-playing elements with action-based combat and mixed genre gameplay similar to that of Nier. (wikipedia)
As for the hobby aspect: here’s why these two DDs matter in particular this time around: they have a more realistic sculpt that both vinyl and resin collectors go nuts to get their hands on. There’s been other DDs in the past with a more refined resin look and these are often collaboration dolls: DD Beatrice, DD KosMos and DD Rise are three that come to mind initially.
I am thrilled with the face that 2B is a DDdy! She looks magnificent! Her pout is also extremely spectacular. She will retail for 88,000 yen.
For more information on how to acquire these dolls please pay attention to the following website. Since availability outside Japan is negotiated as per each IP there may be a chance they these dolls may not be available outside Japan. (Depending all upon Squenix’s wishes) We’ll keep you updated on all news surrounding this (thus far) somewhat mysterious preorder.
