After Tamashii Nations released a 12" PM (Perfect Model) figure of Tiger & Bunny's Kotetsu T. Kaburagi in 2013, Barnaby Brooks Jr. is finally getting his turn. The 12-inch "casual style" action figure features clothes made of actual cloth.

The figure's clothes include tiny zippers and detailed stitching, and Barnaby comes complete with removable glasses. The high-end figure costs 32,400 yen (about US$305).

The Premium Bandai website and Bandai figure brand Tamashii Nations' online shop are accepting pre-orders now. The figure is slated to ship in November.

Premium Bandai is also accepting pre-orders for a 1/1-scale Wild Tiger head. The mask is a remake of a similar item originally released in 2013.

Sunrise's original anime franchise is getting a new anime series project. Both Keiichi Satō, the director of the original Tiger & Bunny television anime, and Yoshitomo Yonetani, director of the Tiger & Bunny anime films, confirmed that they are not working on the series.
