A Queen’s Gate version of Noel from BlazBlue has been teased in the last two sets of magazine scans, and people have been eagerly awaiting her release. Well, it’s finally here! Unfortunately Noel is an exclusive, so while her retail price is only ¥7,600 you are most likely going to need a proxy to order her. This means a price bump and, if you order through a US shop, a later release date. She’s set for March, but expect her release to be in April at the earliest for US stores!
Noel is listed as 1/8, but I honestly have some concerns about her size. I have Hobby Japan’s Katja, one of the few figures they produced themselves, and she had a similarly listed height. However, she wasn’t 1/8. She wasn’t 1/9 either. I’d put her at about 1/10, which was quite disappointing considering how much she cost. Noel is supposed to be 7.5″, but that includes her gun, so let’s just hope that she is really 1/8!
If you live in Japan, you can place a mail-order for Noel, but if not we will update with pre-order links as soon as they are available.
