It is quite amazing, Attack On Titan has made such an impact on the Anime world and it’s audiences in such a huge way. The Anime got incredible reception, the Manga has begun selling better than it had previously and the amount of merchandise that has been designed, developed and sold is nothing short of fantastic! Ever since Episode 1/Chapter 1 of the series, fans have fantasized about having their own 3D Maneuver Gear to zip around their cities or towns, some fans have even made working models of the Gears, obviously they weren’t so exact as to hoist humans into the air but they were “working”. I’ve got some good news for all you die-hard fans of the series: It was only recently announced that an Officially made and released 3D Maneuver Gear is set for release sometime in 2014.
I’m not joking, this is not a hoax, this is confirmed and it is great! It has been said that the release will actually be a 1/1-scale model of the Gears from the series and, from what the picture, it probably comes with the sword and extra blades too. Like I said above it is scheduled for release in 2014 but it will be unveiled properly at the “Survey Corps Archives” exhibition in Tokyo, which will run from the 18th of October until the 4th of November so expect a lot of awesome-looking merchandise and images to come from that. As for right now; enjoy the one official picture we have and stay excited, the Attack On Titan craze will be around for a while.
