New Deformed Figures from Japan

It looks like the Deformed figure craze will continue with a new series to be released in Japan in May.  It looks like I have yet another series to collect, I love this deformed stuff.  ;)

These looks cool. I may consider buying them depending on the price.

I will say yes, different sculpting I guess looking at the prototype pic Jesse supplied & the pics of the Palm Talkers archived on RS tho not sure what size (scale) the new ones are. I'm sure in time we will know more.

It would be damn cool if they are the same scale as the Palm Talkers, they'd all display nicely together.

I agree Jesse, I still have my POTJ Boba Fett. 12 pieces per box & $45. so that would be $3.75 each. I have a funny feeling that these are tiny, SD = Super Deformed?

I think you're right about them being quite small.  I found a listing at BBTS.com that says they are blind boxed, so I don't think they'd be very large.

That's a pretty sweet price since that's the cost for a box of 12.  I imagine there will be some sort of regular box breakdown like with Kubricks and Bust-Ups, so I gotta find out what that will be.

These look pretty neat and being blind boxed is cool which means that there will probably be a chase...

 The last 2 waves talked. Each had @ 3-4 lines to say. Do these talk? Maybe they are less money because they are just figures and don't talk?
