May 28th, 2016. Today's Mega Hobby Expo not only offered a first look at the colored Matsuda Takato & Guilmon G.E.M. Series figure announced earlier this month, but was also accompanied by the surprise announcement of a Motomiya Daisuke & V-mon figure pair. Previously Digimon Adventure 02 fans had expressed some frustration in the light of Takato's figure announcement, as studio Mega House had previously only produced a figure for Ichijouji Ken of 02, seemingly jumping straight to Tamers despite having produced figures of every one of Adventure's Chosen Children. The announcement that Daisuke will be receiving a figure of his own has seemingly put these concerns to rest in wake of the announcement, although the figure's time frame has not yet been announced.

The expo also featured the upcoming card tin and accompanying Hyper Colosseum cards, providing a first look at some of the set's reprints. These will be compatible with the D-Ark Ver. 15th, and faithfully replicate the appearance and foiling of the original cards. Particular notable among the cards shown is King Device, an option card which on the original D-Ark Ultimate could be slashed alongside Queen Device to gain simultaneous bonuses to HP, AP, and SP.

    1. It's about the voiced Agumon & Gabumon Digitama from a while back. It seems that beginning 6/1 they're being made free DLC instead of requiring a product code.

  4. I thought that way too until I saw 02 subbed, and now he's actually my favorite character. The dub fucked with his character/lines beyond imagination
