I don't have an answer I'm afraid but I'm waiting too. They're not out yet, but slwowly they seem to be bringing out the planned design -here's hoping.

I have asked and I have it on good authority that these are custom one-offs, not even sold at the toy fair pictured here, but just displayed, unfortunately.

KB, if you are interested in the available Assemble Borgs, your best contact for is Zira28 on Ebay.

Hypno

Thanks for the steer, I've dealt with Zira28 quite a bit in the past, she's a really good seller.

They seem to be named in an official-looking catalogue

Hypno is correct. The items shown were have not been for sale. They are just for display from the photos. They have not been sold at all. However, they still seem to be on the agenda to be made at some point. Actually I would probably guess that we may even see them for the spring release. The winter release is the Assault Gear. It looks as if they're basically doing a release per season with some extra stuff here and there.

Okay this is precisely the information I got:

"They are persons customs that used their figures parts. Kaiyodo exhibited these personal items at Wonder Festival. There are no this kind of accessories by Kaiyodo sales both at toy show & Kaiyodo shop. Maybe I will get Garage kits for assemble borgs at next Wonder Festival."

So maybe there is hope they will be released at some point, although Kaiyodo has moved on to the second series, all opaque and less HC and Microman inspired, but still excellent figures. The new accessory sets appeal to me less, though.

It's the two shades of transparent green that work so well on "Acid Worm".

I really hope they'll hit production. The stuff that is out now actually showed up in I believe Hyper Hobby or Figure King way back along with the other stuff, so hopefully it's still planned as a possibility. It is totally correct too that the new stuff is mostly all solid not much in the way of clear parts.

From my personal observations. I think these will be released as Jarknoid power up sets. Much like the series now is being released partially as a power upgrade.

I'll happily take a one day kit of them as well haha
