A new sort of NieR Automata memorabilia will let people create their own collectible. An HO229 NieR Automata 2B model kit is in the works. For $154.99, people will be able to build a transforming flight unit and either pose 2B with it or on her own. Pre-orders are open via the Square Enix Store, with the kit expected to launch in May 2021.
This 2B and Flight Unit model kit will have multiple posing options. You can have it in its flight or mobile positions, with 2B herself inside. 2B can also be posed separately with Pod 042 and her Virtuous Contract and Virtuous Treaty swords. 2B herself is about three inches tall, while the Flight Unit H0229 is over eight and a half inches tall when standing in its mobile form. (A length wasn’t provided for its flight form.)
Here’s a better look at the painted HO229 NieR Automata 2B model kit.
Square Enix didn’t offer any details about how complex this kit will be. We don’t know how many parts will be involved or if people will need glue. We do know that the prototype pictures from the listing do have a painted version of the kit. Waterslide decals will be included. (Based upon the appearance, it seems like it could be as elaborate as a Gunpla or Frame Arms Girl kit.)
