Xenosaga Needs a Dinah Figure, Thus Spoke MegaHouse

Xenosaga fans will no longer be out of luck when it comes to figures of the games' mecha. When it comes to Xenosaga figures, it's pretty much Kos-Mos and more Kos-Mos. There are the occasional T-elos figures, or a rare Shion or Momo sprinkled here and there, but it's mostly just endless versions of Kos-Mos. Fans had to resort to making their own figures if they wanted mecha. MegaHouse is finally giving fans a break and by making a figure of the E.S. Dinah unit as part of their Variable Action line. You know, I think this is the first official mecha figure ever from the Xenosaga games. While this isn't and entirely Kos-Mos-less figure, as the Dinah is actually piloted by Kos-Mos, it's great to see that someone is starting to make mecha from the games.

MegaHouse has answered fans' prayers for a Xenosaga mecha.

The Dinah appeared in Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Böse and Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra, but also has a resemblance to the Xenogears gear from my favorite Xeno RPG, Xenogears. The figure is up for pre-order right now at AmiAmi and Hobby Link Japan. It will stand approximately 6" tall and should be out in August. It's not cheap at a little over $100, but for the hardcore Xenosaga fan, if there are still any, that's a small price to pay for something they've been waiting years for. We don't know if this is the beginning of a entire series of Xeno mecha or just a one-off, but at least it's a start. It's pretty awesome that Xenosaga fans are finally seeing a mecha figure.

The Dinah can do a little transformation, too.

While I do love the series, I'm not as big into the Xenosaga designs as I am the Omnigears form Xenogears. If some company starting making Xenogears gears figures, then I would be in trouble.
