DOLK x Fate/Grand Order – Gilgamesh Pre-Order Starts!
We have news regarding one of the latest licensed character dolls made in collaboration with DOLK.
Gilgamesh was first announced in early August as an upcoming doll produced and distributed through the combined efforts of DOLK, ALL FOR ONE and the copyright holder Aniplex. Today the Aniplex+ online store has started accepting preorders for the Fate/Grand Order character.
The sculpt has been designed and modeled with the help of Mr. Noboru Ohashi, who is a famous figure in the Japanese doll-world as he has been in charge of developing prototypes for ZOUKEI-MURA INC in the past. Some of his noteworthy creations include Super Dollfie like Kurumi/Miruku and Luna as well as robot models. Mr. Ohashi also founded his own figure-making company “ALL FOR ONE” in 2012 and is serving as an Advisor and Lecturer at the Osaka Design College since 2016. DOLK must harbor high hopes for this project since they decided to involve such a prominent figure in the development process.
What do you think of the results?
Those hoping to add Gilgamesh to their collection should be aware that he, like any DOLK collaborations, does not come at a bargain price. He retails for 168,000 yen, or about 1530 USD, without tax and orders are limited to one item per person. The first ordering period will last from the 30th of November until January 7th while the second order period is scheduled from the 18th of January to the 24th February next year with shipping times being estimated as October and December 2020 respectively – depending on which period the doll was ordered in.
Please note that these ordering periods can very well be subject to changes in the future as DOLK has been known to close orders for batches early if their expected quota has been filled before the deadline. So if you are contemplating about ordering this doll, be sure not to wait until the end of the second ordering period as it could end up being closed earlier.
You can preorder Gilgamesh from the Japanese Aniplex+ website.
