Last teased at Superfestival 69 over 6 months ago now, the long awaited Heragrado kaiju from Roughneck.7 will finally see the light of day this month with not 1, but 2 exclusive releases! Continuing their renaissance in classically styled kaiju – albeit on a larger scale – the beetle-like beast dwarfs the previously released Demushiron, Yabkyrie and Jabara at around 14″ tall (TBC), coming complete with 9 points of articulation that can be manipulated to transform the figure into the stunning “tank mode” you can check out right here. Going on sale first at Superfestival 71 this weekend in a limited GID colorway (left), we’re told that this will be quickly followed up with another version (right) just in time for the Osaka Soft Expo on March 21st. Priced at 18,000yen ($161) each, here’s hoping we’re not left waiting too long before we start seeing these guys overseas!
