The guys behind elusive Japanese sofubi house Ilu Ilu have just revealed their latest offering ahead of Superfestival 68 this weekend, the breathtaking “Cyber Future Techno Loader” series! Heavily inspired by the likes of Transformers and Micronauts, the initial line-up consists of 2 vintage-style bots – Commander Victor (red) and Commander Victor (green) – both coming packed with a set of 4 mini robots in Ilu Ilu’s signature deluxe window display box. Due to go on sale via lottery at Superfestival 68 this coming Sunday, April 26th, both versions have been priced at 24,000yen ($201) each.
