Digivolving Spirits Series
The Digivolving Spirits (超進化魂, Chou Shinka Tamashī; lit. "Super-evolving Spirits") series is a new brand of Digimon Toy, articulated figurines similar to the Digivolving Series toy line. Unlike its predecessor line, the Digivolving Spirits toys are primarily geared towards adult collectors, with each figure including die cast parts, greater articulation and more attention to detail. Following similar high-end Bandai lines such as S.H. Figuarts, the Digivolving Spirits toys are available for pre-order several months before their wide release, and are currently scheduled with one figure releasing every other month.
While the first two figures in the line, War Greymon and Metal Garurumon, are updated versions of Digivolving Series figures, the others are entirely new designs, built around the premise of transforming from "cute" (typically Child level Digimon) to "cool" (Perfect or Ultimate level Digimon). All eight Digimon Adventure partners are planned, transforming from their default levels to their highest in the series.
Watanabe Kenji served as Chief Director in the design and development process, as well as being an illustrator for the packaging. He said that the toys are meant to be "ideal visual portrayals of [the] characters", with added touches in the style of American comics.
