If you remember, I covered a very nice toy set from Bandai last year for Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Including both the Mehve glider and Nausicaä herself, I assumed it would be a Japan-exclusive. Thankfully, Bluefin has stepped in and brought it Westward.
Currently available to order from the Bluefin site, this Nausicaä and Mehve toy set costs $98.
The set includes the Mehve glider and an action figure of Nausicaä, along with other accessories.
The Mehve glider also has a new “transformed” mode, which is pretty cool but is not present in either the original manga or anime.
I picked up the Japanese version of this toy set last year and was very impressed with it. Not only for the action figure of Nausicaä but also that the Mehve has LEDs for the engines, among many other things.
Moreover, the fact that we are getting this toy set means we will likely have more Studio Ghibli related merchandise on the way at some point soon.
