Legendary Giant from Classic Robot Anime Ideon Gets 73 cm-Tall Soft Vinyl Figure

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.
