From the Japanese magazines comes the surprise announcement of a Figma version of Ein from Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, the new Bee Train anime based on a suspense visual novel. It’s practically inevitable that she’ll get a PVC or two (I’d love one of her and Zwei in an action pose or something, but it’s probably unlikely given the aversion most figure companies have to male characters) but a Figma being announced first was definitely unexpected.
I can’t wait to see the coloured version. From the silhouette she’ll be wearing her yellow shirt outfit. It looks like she’ll only be 10cm high as well, which is really tiny. I know she’s not a tall character, but it that’s especially small, so looks like Max Factory might be experimenting with different sizes of Figma? The only accessory clear so far is her gun. I hope they’ll include her mask as well. I can’t imagine they can do much for alternate faces given she only has one expression most of the time.
I really hope they do a Zwei Figma as well. They’re a great team, so I feel like it would be a shame to only have one of them – with both of them there would be even more potential for neat action scenes, especially with the newly announced di:stage sets. They’re pretty good with making male characters as well as female, so maybe there’s hope.
