|Teased during Wonder Festival Winter 2013 as a poster, MegaHouse finally reveals details about their upcoming E.S.Dinah figure from the game Xenosaga III and piloted by KOS-MOS.
The figure features movable rear binders, a deployable X-Cannon, and can transform into its flight mode. With E.S.Dinah being one of machines without foot units, the set includes a display stand to prop up the figure.
With that price tag, expect the figure to have top notch detail and paintwork. That said, stability is still an issue with figures from the Variable Action line, add to that the fact that E.S.Dinah is a transformable unit.

The introductory movie for the Guardians of the Galaxy will not feature Iron Man, though he has been a member of the team’s latest iteration. And that means Hasbro has another shot of releasing another Iron Man figure.
That said, the figure is a retool of the Heroic Age Iron Man mold with new shoulder armors and head sculpt. It will also be part of a Build-A-Figure Collection for Groot, another member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
