it seems like this new type of PA will be called "KAI"..
(pictures from action-figure.com)
do you know what "kai" or its kanji means?
"Kai" means "remodeling","improved",or "amendment".
"Kai" = 改 = かい = remodeling.
thank you (sorry for the late response)..
I'm dissapointed that they decided to remove Lightning's movable joints..
haha... don't worry about it. :D
LIGHTNING will be certainly released as PLAY-ARTS.
But there aren't yet some joints because it's still in the trial phase.
* In JF2009, she was painted, but there aren't the joints.
* I think that perhaps NYTF2009 model is same as a model of TGS2008.
we may see it by the event of this year which it's painted and has movable joints, as PLAY-ARTS "Kai".
