SGH4: X-002's Arms of Articulated Destruction

Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. give us a look at the colored prototype of X-Multiply's X-002 from Shooting Game Historica 4. The arms are flexible with multiple movable joints to set them in plenty of battle-ready positions. I'm a little worried for how sturdy the actual arms will be; will they stay in one position for a long time without falling out of place? We'll just have to wait and see about that, but the toy itself looks amazing. This is just the prototype, but Takara expects that it will not change for the production model. The X-002 and all the other SGH4 prototypes will be on display at the upcoming Winter Festival.

In other SGH news, it seems that the Thunder Force V mega-awesome-super set will be delayed until further notice. Because of repeated adjustments, the mold itself still isn't completely finished. They know lots of fans are eager for this set to see release, so they are very sorry for the delay. That's okay, though. Since the Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. dudes are perfectionists in tiny things, so I'll trust them to make it right no matter how long it takes.

Just two of the deadly positions of X-002's arms of articulated destruction.
