The Daibadi Aigis figure has some history behind it. The figure was actually announced back in July 2012. It resurfaced a year later in October 2013, when Daibadi started his own production company and reworked his older Aigis garage kit as a pre-assembled and pre-painted model. Pre-orders were being taken until November 18th, 2013 with a May 2014 release date, and several promotional shots were released for the figure.
However, on November 1, 2013, Daibadi issued an apology letter explaining that he had to cancel pre-orders and discontinue production of the figure. As it turned out, Complete Movable Dimension Aigis was much more popular than Daibadi had anticipated and, in particular, he received a lot of inquiries and orders from overseas customers, which he was happy for. Because the demand for the product was so high, Daibadi had no choice but to cancel pre-orders and revisit his production strategy in the future for this specific figure.
That brings us to now, where Daibadi has announced that pre-orders for the figure will be opened at select retailers on July 13, 2015 and that it now has a December 2015 release date.
