Masamune Shirow Hyperpage To be honest, I've lost track of the Tachikoma! There are just SO many variations, with the Perfect Piece, Movic mini Tachis, Wave 1/24 WHAMs... its just mind boggling! I'd love to collect them all but at this period when I'm not even sure where I will be next year it's best to trim and be extra choosy. (That's a bloody long name for a plastic toy there!) Manufacturer: Organic Scale: Non (length about 16cm) Material: ABS Producer: Shimon Koguma Release Date: Feb 2009 Regular Price: 9,800 yen HAW206 Promo Poster Promotional images of the model *Also available in funky "Limited Edition" green colour!

Anyway, my WHAM 1/24 Tachi collection is not complete, but with a HAW206 on pre-order it would be convenient to assume some of the missing Tachis were wiped out by some serious firepower! Thanks Greg for the heads up :) Cheers!
