Zone of the Enders Dolores Kit Incoming from Kotobukiya

With all the Zone of the Enders Revoltech figures, model kits, and other figures being made over the past few years, it was only a matter of time before the Orbital Frames from the anime were tapped. I shouldn't really be surprised to see a kit of Dolores from the Zone of the Enders: Dolores, i anime, but I kind of am. I guess I just wasn't expecting to see this one. Kotobukiya is bringing out a model kit of Dolores, the very pink Orbital Frame with a spirited personality. The first production run will include two tiny figurines of pilot James Links, one standing, the other sitting so he can go in the pilot seat. If you want to relive all the snappy banter between Dolores and James, then getting her in her first run is the way to go.

Dolores just wants to help Sir Uncle, if she could stop being a klutz.

The kit also includes Dolores' sword arms, arm cannons, extra hands, and parts which I think were for her battle mode maybe, it's been a long time since I've seen the show. Eventually in the anime, she had a tail, too, so I'm fully expecting a second kit of Dolores here. The first production run of Dolores is up for pre-order at AmiAmi and Hobby Link Japan and should be out in August.

Dolores can accessorize her pretty pink frame with these awesome weapons and add-ons.

This had me thinking, what ever happened to the Blu-ray set that was supposed to come out? Wasn't it announced a while ago? I thought it was, but maybe it was only for Japan. Well, it's be nice to see one in the U.S.
