A new Appleseed movie called Appleseed Alpha is coming out.

http://www.mania.com/appleseed-alpha-for-sony-pictures_article_139235.html

I hope this means we will get Hot Toys figures too. I didn't get the last release. Wasn't into Hot Toys back then. But since the director just had an interview with the Space Pirate Captain Harlock figure it seems likely that we will get another Deunan figure. I won't miss that one. The movie should be good too. I like the previous two.

Already a huge GITS fan! Which makes it even more strange that I've never watched any Appleseed before now. :dunno

The original OVA looks better with 2D and oldskool look. The cellshaded movie & anime is horrible.

If you guys really want 6" figure, Wave is the best out of them all, but pricey.

Cellshaded 3D, talks about the start of Appleseed story where they just joined. The animation is pretty outdated.

The company making the show went bankrupted.

Tremendous news!!! I totally dig the alpha reboot character designs. Really hope Deunan is a go as well. The Deus Ex Machina HT figures were two of the first I tracked down in the aftermarket when I started collecting about 2 years ago. Photos of the Play Arts Kai Deunan look terrible so that set was not gonna cut it. So happy to see this!

Thats true real hard to get use to Deunans new look.

They certainly wanted to go photo-realistic look this time around. Which I don't mind. And on a side note, it seems like it was originally released in English too. At least the lips seem to match.

07-22-2014, 09:36 PM
Nice to see this line confirmed. I need to see the movie before I write off Deunan's new look. It's more realistic. But also more showy. So much so that I like the earlier armored look more. But we'll see if she shows up tomorrow.

I saw them at SDCC and the first thing I said is "what happened to Biareos' head/antenna?" I was a bit put-0ff by that that and then while wandering the hall I found the ExMachina version of him (albeit at a stiff price tag) and by the end of the con he was mine. I tried to talk myself out of it but couldn't. They had Deunan too but I passed on her as the two together was just too much.

I was surprised how much of his body is rubberized over the inner figure and hope that I can keep that from having issues over time. I love the guns he comes with and think they nailed the head. I never watched any of the anime as I am afraid of how it might be as I was a huge fan of the Manga since its initial release (not to date myself or anything).

The clothing, weapons, etc on the new Alpha figures look cool but I just don't like the head as much (might be exactly how it is in the new Alpha release, they premiered it at SDCC but I didn't go).

I found a couple sets of pictures people took when searching Facebook. Nothing really telling anything about how good the figure is in-hand though.

Cool, thanks for the link. It is nice to see some in-hand images of this guy. Other than the limited articulation in the shoulders, he looks pretty good. I really want to buy him, but I've been saving my money for Hot Toys Star Wars figures. So I'm not really sure if I'll get him or not. I'm a big fan of the Appleseed movies. I used to have the original Hot Toys Briareos, but this new version looks superior without the rubber body suit. So I really want to pick him up at some point.

Good luck feet42 on the Star Wars figures. The Alpha Briareos from ExMachina is really cool; it'd be nice to apply some new tech and re-release it. This new figure is good enough. I'm also debating whether to get it or Robocop ... but I just saw Hot Toys' post of Captain Phasma. She and Boba Fett standing next to each other will be really cool.

Briareos*is a solid figure, limited range of articulation though. We'll worth a purchase if you like appleseed. Very nice figure.
