After the surprise announcement of Persona 4 figmas at Wonder Festival, I assumed it might be a while before we got to see them in action. Well, recent magazine scans proved me wrong, and Chie is already getting a preview from the figma blog! She comes with a nice assortment of accessories and faces: she’s got a happy face, a fighting face, and a creepy version of her shadow face! She also comes with two sets of glasses (standard, and the goofy pair Teddie made) and an effect part to recreate her galactic punt. I think it would have been nice if they’d included some food (perhaps a steak kebab!) but considering how easy it is to get some meaty Re-Ment it certainly won’t be hard to give her a full buffet.
Chie retails for ¥3,000 and should come out in June, with pre-orders going up this week. Since Yukiko is already painted as well I am sure her orders will follow shortly, as well as her adorable Nendoroid. I hope that these sell well so we can see more of the line and figmas of some of the neglected characters like Kanji or Naoto! Mikatan actually confirmed last night that we will be getting several characters in the Nendoroid line, so hopefully the same is true of the figma line as I think these are pretty great representations of the cast.
