Bandai will begin offering the Figure-rise Mechanics Doraemon plastic model kit in November. The kit will give fans a chance to look inside Doraemon and build their own robot cat.

People who purchase the kit will be able to gain deeper knowledge of Doraemon by assembling his inner structure. The models simulated inner mechanics will be based on materials Shogakukan released in the Ketteihan Doraemon Daiji-ten book in 2001. The kit will showcase the inner workings of Doraemon's parts such as the Ultra Super Deluxe Computer and Rubber Hands. The set will include both opaque and clear blue body pieces to let people choose whether or not they want to display the robot's inner mechanics.

Bandai will also release the Figure-rise Mechanics Dorami plastic model kit and the Figure-rise Mechanics Doraemon no Himitsu Dōgu Time Machine kit. Similar to the Doraemon set, the Dorami plastic model will highlight the robot's inner structure.

The Time Machine model kit will have an energy tank inside, and the cover will be able to open and shut. The kit will come with a Nobita Figure that can fit alongside the Doraemon model on the Time Machine.

The Doraemon and Dorami plastic model kits will cost 2,700 yen (about US$24) each. The Time Machine kit will cost 4,104 yen (US$36). The model kits will be available both online and at model shops, toy shops, and other retailers in Japan.
