    Aniplex’s Teddie is UnBEARably Cute

    One of my very first PVC purchases years and years ago was Wave’s hard-to-get Teddie, who even back then was a challenge to find (especially the rare variants!). But since then Persona 4‘s popularity in the figure world has skyrocketed to proportions I never would have guessed. So of course we got lots more Teddie figures! This one is really riding on the tail end of P4‘s success (or on hype for Persona 5, perhaps?) but of course I’m going to get it. IT’S TEDDIE.

    I was kind of bummed by the initial plain art, but he looked great at Anime Japan and of course he looks great in the promotional shots!

    Winter Wonder Festival 2015: Aniplex

    Are you ready for the most un-BEAR-ably cute booth at Wonder Festival? Because it has that announced Teddie, who has already stolen my heart. I love him so very very much and he will be mine. There was some other stuff too, I guess, like towel Mami and the Maiko versions of Sayaka & Kyoko.

    Aniplex Prepares A Figure Of Persona 4’s Teddie
