The warrior Alphamon jets in from Japanese Digimon franchise

Given the constantly-connected vibe of our 21st-century reality, Digimon has easily been one of the most relevant manga, anime and video-game offerings in recent history. There’s no question, then, why Square Enix has set its sights on one of the monsters fabled to live inside a parallel universe created by human communication networks. Here, Alphamon is given the detail-oriented and renowned S.H. Figuarts treatment. Also known as the “Aloof Hermit”, Alphamon’s name is derived from the words “alpha” and “omega”.

If this isn’t a clue to his important role within the Digital World, it’s hard to say what is! The Royal Knight announces his arrival with a fluttering blue mantle, ensuring his indispensable presence is known. This Mega-level fighter from the Virus Busters family is characterized by his antagonism towards humans, but we’re sure that if you provide a place on your collector’s shelf for him, you’ll be safe from his wrath! He’ll be shipping out in April 2015, so preorder Alphamon now.

In order to digivolve to Alphamon, your Digimon must be at least level 65, with 50,000 Holy experience and you must have previously befriended a Clockmon. Phew! Luckily, copping him in action-figure form is a lot simpler.
