DRACUT, MASSACHUSETTS, November 5, 2008 — Following the sold-out "Gore Version Sky Deviler" CollectionDX is proud to announce our latest exclusive toy - the Nor'easter ver. Vegetius!
Vegetius stands 12 inches tall and is made out of translucent blue glitter soft vinyl. Made in Japan by the master craftsmen at Marmit, Vegetius has 5 points of articulation and is limited to 50 pieces.
Vegetius is one of the many giant monsters that take part in the Boston-based Kaiju Big Battel, a series of live action-monster wrestling events. He is the most beast-like creature of the Battel and no man or monster can control him around food.
This color scheme is meant to evoke the harsh, cold winter of the New England region, home to both CollectionDX and Kaiju Big Battel. The blue vinyl is translucent with metallic flakes; a color mixed exclusively for CollectionDX. This color has never been done by Marmit before.
Nor'easter ver. Vegetius is available NOW in the CollectionDX shop for $65
The figure comes bagged with a header card featuring art by CollectionDX’s own JoshB.
