    Feast Your Eyes Upon The Newest Persona 5 Figures

    While Persona 5 isn’t even out in the US yet (grumble grumble), it’s certainly reaching peak hype in Japan. And thus, it’s time for figures! We recently found out about Amakuni’s Anne, who was at the most recent Persona-themed event, along with Aquamarine’s Caroline and Justine who are newly sculpted.

    Then we have some new figures! Phat! Company surprised us all by showing off two sculpts: the main character and Futaba Sakura! Which means we have figures of most of the girls, something that’s (still) not even true for 3 or 4.

    Check Out The Persona 3 Protagonist Garage Kit Of My Dreams

    It’s no secret that a figure of the protagonist from Persona 3 is my ultimate dream figure, be it a re-release of the Kotobukiya figure or a totally new version. No, the Figuarts and Happy Kuji don’t count: I want a real figure. And for a shining moment, when I first saw this sculpt, I thought my dreams might be coming true. Because holy hell is this a perfect sculpt.

    Sadly, it’s a garage kit, and limited to Winter Wonder Festival 2015. If you’re going to the event and want this kit, be sure to hit up the booth of circle Choukokushitsuza who will be doing the release!
