Premium Bandai Release Gantz: O X Gun

Wow, just wow! We’ve seen the Psycho Pass Dominator gun which looks amazing but now Premium Bandai have released the X Gun from the latest entry to the Gantz movie series, Gantz: O. And it looks absolutely spectacular.

It’s actually a perfect 1:1 scale replica of the main weapon in the new 3DCG movie complete with LED effects, 30 of them, the mandatory sound effects and a highly impressive changing barrel transformation.

It weighs in at 700 grams and is about 9.8 inches long so it’s pretty hefty.

See that rear screen? Yep, that lights up as well and also included are 2 different colour slides which show if an enemy is in range or not. On top of that, it lets loose with three shots before it needs a cool down period.

Starting on October 14, you’ll be able to pre-order the X Gun through the Premium Bandai site. It’ll sell for ¥39,960 while the movie also hits Japanese cinema on October 14.

Psycho-Pass Akane Tsunemori Figure Incoming

Fans of the Psycho Pass series won’t want to miss this next bit of news. Figure makers, Creative Union, will be releasing a 23cm figure of Akane Tsunemori from the hit show, this coming July. The new figure will form part of Creative Union’s H series of figures. It will set you back ¥9, 500 which is great seeing as how apart from a nendoroid, not much else has been seen from this great show.

Cosplay Game Around Japanese Theme Park

Japanese creator team known as, PK Theater, have already shown they are extremely capable by putting together the PSYCHO-PASS Hands-On game. So much so that they’ve been invited to try their hand at another series. The new one they’ll be working will be based around Hakuouki for the amusement park in Japan called Toshimaen. This will tie in with the promotions for the upcoming movie in the Summer based on the series.

The game for many players is called “Hakuouki: Toshimaen Riot” which will involve participants to scour the park helping out Saitou in locating pieces of the Hijikata’s Haiku book as it’s been broken and the pieces scattered throughout the grounds. What is a twist however is that players will be allowed to cosplay as they take part in the game. You cant cosplay as you come to and from the grouns but you can change into your gear on-site in the provided changing rooms. There’s also no filming allowed, no prop weapons with the exception of katanas. They do also provide katanas for you but you have to ensure that you’re not waving around so you don’t hurt anyone.

This all kicks off on May 3rd but how cool would it be to have at some of the conventions here in Australia!
