Its estimated weight is over 3kg
Bandai Namco Group's toy company Plex has started accepting pre-orders for a 73 cm-tall soft vinyl figure
of Ideon, the main robot in Surise's classic robot anime in the early 1980s, Densetsu Kyojin Ideon/Space
Runaway Ideon, for July 2019 release.
The sci-fi robot anime directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino was aired for 39 episodes in Japan from May 1980 to
January 1981. It was originally planned for a 43-episode run, but was canceled after its 39th episode due
to low ratings and poor sales of its merchandises. In July 1982, two compilation films including the TV
anime's original ending, The Ideon: A Contact and The Ideon: Be Invoked, were released.
Based on the original anime design sketches of the 105 meters tall robot, the 1/144 scale figure is recreated
with more details using the latest digital molding technology. Its estimated weight is over 3kg and price in
Japan is 59,400 yen (about 530 US dollars).
Purchasers at Premium Bandai wil also get an original character display plate.
