Info and Story of Celsius(designed by Rotobox):
The expected release date is around Jan 2009 with 600 pcs of original color (black). We will also have NYCC exclusive (Camo colorway...revealed at a later date) around 150 pcs. Each original colorway figure comes with 2 guns and a mini comic book (refer to attachment), one more gun added for NYCC exclusive colorway. The final box design will be very similar to the pictures up on ToysRevil. The size of Celsius is 7 inches. The wingspan is around 8 inches. It's made out of vinyl. Price is undetermined at this point.I am super excited for the release of this figure, not only is this sculpt rad, but the story behind it makes it that much more amazing. Call me a nerd(I'm alright with it) but this really reminds me of a futuristic version of PIT the character from Kid Icarus game on Nintendo. Who in the future had his actual wings removed and had them replaced with metal/robotic ones...anyways, keep checking back here because I hear this company is releasing 3 other toys soon, and I will have all the info for you!
Created for the sole purpose of serving the evil Gunryu Empire lead by Emperor Nyan Nyan, Celsius was stolen by a small renegade squad known as S3uck (SSSUCK - Super Secret Squad Unit Combat Korps, pronounced as Suck) and has helped him understand the true intentions of the empire. Now fully aware of the evil doings of the empire, Celsius vowed to fight for justice and freedom and spread the message that "co-existence" is a vital role in our world.
