Bubblegum Crisis Hard Suits to go on Display

posted on
in Boston Anime shop

The two life size Bubblegum Crisis hard suits that were auctionned off by AnimEigo on Ebay last month will be displayed at Boston Anime shop Tokyo Kid.

The owner of the two hard suits (Linna's & Nene's), both of which can actually be worn by appropriately sized people, has informed ANN that he will be enlisting the aid of some professional kit builders in order to restore the hard suits to their original splendor. On top of it all, he learned about the hard suits from ANN!

AnimEigo announced in early December that it would be auctionning off the two hard suits on E-bay as of December 18th.

The hard suits were crafted by Mr. Takagi Ryoosuke, a professional modeller. The Nene suit was even worn by Nene's voice actress.

AnimEigo had displayed the two hard suits at several conventions, but when wear and tear began to take their toll on the suits AnimEigo packed them up into storage where they languished for several years.

The auction ended on December 27th with Nene's and Linna's suits going for $2,550.00 and $2,200.00 respectively.

Now fans, or at least fans who are in the Boston area, will have a chance to see these unique suits up close.
