This is some freaky coincidence. Some random dude on IRC, (ok it was jinyamato but he’s a nobody lol) moaned about the lack of decent Last Exile ship models. And the next thing we know it, Good Smile Company announces a non-scale 19 cm long Vanship! ALL HAIL JESUS!
Anyway, this isn’t diecast but rather made of ABS. There are immense details though, like the control panel, footpedals and joystick etc. Note that this is Claus and Lavi’s Vanship (ok Alex’s rather), so these two will be included as mini-figures which can fit into the craft.
The hefty price tag of 8190 yen will make us bankrupt but I suppose a Last Exile Fanboy’s gotta put his foot down and spend once in a while. It’s like, you’re a devout Tom Cruise fan and you get the chance to purchase a cup of his semen! How wonderful is that??
This will be released in May 2007. I do already have a little figure of the Vanship courtesy of the Last Exile Grandstream Trading Set by Alter, but it’s just too tiny to be cool.
Oh and when I announced this epic piece of news to a certain IRC channel, Kwok-sensei had an awesome comeback.
