DoDonPachi Type-A Model Coming from Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya is bringing us some DoDonPachi. DoDonPachi merchandise has been a little difficult to come by if you don't live in Japan, so it's exciting to see Kotobukiya making something that will be more widely available and easier to import. R.C. Berg made a few DoDonPachi resin kits a while back, but they were super expensive and long gone by the time many fans even knew about them. Well, Kotobukiya is crafting a model kit of the Type-A ship, which is looking awesome in the official photos. This particular red and white Type-A ship is from DoDonPachi DaiOuJou. The kit is up for pre-order at AmiAmi and Hobby Link Japan for around 5000 Yen or so and will be out in February. Considering Koto made both Ikaruga ships, I have a feeling Type-B and Type-C ships are also in the works.
