The next version of Thomas Nosuke figure - designed by Doktor A and produced by Tomenosuke - will be launched on Saturday March 30th 2019 at 11:59PM Japan Time (I believe that's 10:59AM ET). The Thomas Nosuke Hermesorange Edition will be launched at both the Tomenosuke Japan Store and International Store. I'm assuming it will be priced close to the first release - $120.00 or so.
Tomenosuke has announced that they will be releasing new versions of Doctor A's latest figure - Thomas Nosuke - beginning on Saturday March 23rd 2019 at 11:59pm Japan Time. The Tiffanyblue, Edition will be limited to a run of 40 pieces (5 for AP and 5 for PP - meaning 30 will be sold). All of them will come with a bonus miniature accessory in the style of the space pistol that was used in the 1956 Sci-Fi Classic, "Forbidden Planet." Thomas Nosuke can be made to hold it.
You'll be able to possibly grab an AP (artist Proof) of the Tiffanyblue edition at Doktor As' booth at Toy Con UK 2019.

Physical anomalies, structural aberrations, the mental being manifested physically. Stella being a goddess of sorts, manifests her thoughts of protecting the world – including oceans and space – with the creation/manifestation of the seahorsicorn through her heart/chest, who has magical abilities as well.
