Male figures tend to be in plain poses more often than not, so we were thrilled at the announcement of Max Factory’s intricate Aoba from DRAMAtical Murder. He was painted at Wonder Festival, and I guessed that he’d come with a large pricetag. Well… unfortunately, I was more right than I thought I’d be! Max Factory has shown off Aoba’s promotional photos, along with his release info: he’s scheduled for March and will run you ¥14,095 before discounts. Ouch!
While Good Smile & co have gotten a bit trigger-happy when it comes to pricing, it’s hard to argue against how awesome this figure is. The detail is kind of insane, and it’s certainly a unique pose! Add in the lovely blue color scheme and the adorable dog Ren and I’m sold, even if he will cost an arm and a leg.
