Dantalian no Shoka – Dalian 1/8 PVC figure by FREEing
FREEing is going to release the Dalian ( ダリアン ) 1/8 PVC figure from the light novel/manga/anime “Dantalian no Shoka” ( ダンタリアンの書架, Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian ). Will be released in October 2012. Around 105mm tall, 12,191 yen.
Well you know what they say, a nice figurine doesn’t always come with a nice price tag and this is a good example. 12,191 yen for a 1/8 figurine? That’s a direct hit to the wallet. You don’t always get to see a figurine in sitting position like this one which is why I think this is the unique point. However, what can be making this figurine so expensive? I bet it’s the costume. Even so, it shouldn’t be that expensive as this figurine is not one of those highly detailed one. Is FREEing trying to rip the fans off their money? No idea 🙂
——Description from Manufacturer——
The sharp-tongued superintendent of The Mystic Archives of Dantalian.
From ‘Dantalian no Shoka’ comes a figure of the young Dalian, sculpted in a very peaceful pose reading one of her beloved books.
She is posed sitting on the floor with her huge skirt and long hair both flowing down to the ground. Even though she has a book is in front of her, she is looking up showing off her beautiful face – an innocent expression that hides the abusive language that is bound to come out at any second!
