As you may figured out from the name and color this "D.I.Y" will come in mostly white to allow for easy customizing. For those who have experience with painting toys we recommend you try and create your very own WeGo!
We will post a few pictures of customed 12MechatroWego D.I.Y that were painted by various artists.
Whether you painted it in a sports car pattern or weathered but the possibilities are endless and it's up to you how to customize it!
Painting a completed toy can be complicated but our hope is that as many of our fans will try it as we think part of the charm of the MechatroWeGo is in how easy it is to make your own version WeGo.
**Note when taking the toy apart there is a possibility of the light up function being damaged. We ask you take special attention to this when taking the toy apart.
(All customed MechatroWego's shown above are samples and not for sale)
Of course it can be enjoyed as a toy without customizing it.
Also good news for fans who can't attend Designer Festa but we may sell the 12MechatroWeGo through the official shop or at various events!

Next let's take a look at the "12MechatroWeGo Muay Thai"
Will be sold at a event only price of JPY17,000 (Tax Included)
This will be the Japan version of the Thailand Toy Expo Exclusive "12MechatroWeGo Muay Thai (JP Toys Ver.)"that we mentioned during a earlier blog post.
