This model kit previously appeared as early as 2014. The non-scale kit will stand at around 18 cm (~7.08 inches) tall when completed. But due to how the legs are shaped, the finished kit cannot stand on its own and the owner must attach it to the stand for most of the poses.

Kotobukiya modeled the kit after the protagonist’s Orbital Frame that appeared in the Zone of the Enders series’ second anime adaptation by Sunrise. Z.O.E. Dolores, i is the sequel to the 2001 OVA Z.O.E. 2167 Idolo that aired in Japanese television in the same year.

Here are some of the sample images for the Dolores model kit:

Kotobukiya has been on a roll in restocking its model kits from Konami’s franchises. The company has re-released the model kit of the Zone of the Enders games’ protagonist Orbital Frame Jehuty in late March 2024, and its archnemesis Anubis will follow suit in May 2024. It will also restock the model kit of Metal Gear REX from Metal Gear Solid on April 18, 2024.

The Orbital Frame model kit of Dolores from Zone of the Enders: Dolores, i will be available again in November 2024.
