I found one name translation of this figure as General Hawk Knight. He's from Beast Saga GachaBooster Volume 1, a series of capsule figures which, according to some reports, was produced in a very low quantity so far. I have no idea if there will be subsequent runs, or if it's true, but I shelled out about $30 for the set of 6 (4 figures + 2 dice packs) on eBay.
The capsule toys are quite different in construction from the rest in that they have no articulation. Each figure is painted well and is presented, like most of these toys, like a kit. The lower waist and legs fit into the torso, and the wings pop into the back. They are easily removed, and you may want to glue them. (I don't, but you might.) The sculpt of each figure appears to be completely new as a result of this, although they're clearly based on designs similar to the regular figures. Except this one, the white Hawk Knight is currently exclusive to the capsule packs. This is why I went ahead and shelled out for them. Two of the six packs were dice sets, and who gives a crap about the dice? If you do I can't hear you, because you're dead to me.
The figure is lightly decorated, with blue and white parts going mostly paint-free. There's some red on his shoulders, a silver necklace/collar, gold eyes, and a black beak. And that's pretty much it. His dice launcher is similar to the basic figures and carries the same dice, so you can switch freely between Gashapon and regular figures. Both of his fists are posed in a pre-launch mode, which seems pretty good given that this figure is, for all intents and purposes, a non-poseable figural dice launcher.
For what it is-- an extremely cheap, collectible, arguably disposable toy figure-- it's worth it. If I could buy these things for two bucks, I'd have a house filled with them. At $30 (as the dice are duds) the set is pretty much mostly just for people who want to own everything, but the armored wings, feathery detail, and Gundam-esque deco of this figure make it quite charming. I'd be sorry if I missed it... unless, of course, it ends up in the main line and the capsule set will have ended up being a giant waste of time. If you can get the set delivered to you for under $20? Do it.
