Kotobukiya announced its newest model kit on July 12: Siren from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, currently slated for a November 2018 release.
In the game, Siren is an Artifice, an unmanned humanoid mech controlled by Aegises, that resides high above Alrest. Capable of fighting in high and low altitudes, it can be called upon to fire its particle cannon by Mythra or Pyra. The Artifices are an ancient technology devastating all the same in the present. The Aegis War 500 years ago, which employed many Artifices, was such a calamity that the Aegises were sealed away to prevent such a war from happening ever again.
Kotobukiya's Siren model stands 11.8" (30 cm) tall, accurately depicting the Artifice's armor details and using PET to construct its wings and rings. The particle cannon can be adjusted into firing position to recreate the devastating move in the game! However, though the entire kit has been painted in the official product images, the model only comes with a completely painted head.
