Lucifel, the time traveling archangel, paid a visit to Bandai’s offices with a message. "God says… make an El Shaddai figure." After a meeting, Bandai’s staff agreed on a unique Bandai and El Shaddai collaboration.
We can’t say for sure if God swayed the corporation or if they’re capitalizing on the El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metratron meme. Either way there will be El Shaddai figures in Japan. The figure(s?) will be revealed at the Tamashii Features vol. 2 event on February 11 in Akihabara and shown in Osaka as well as Taipei shortly afterwards.
