A new Ryogi Shiki figure preorder is future good news


Hot preorder from Kotobukiya

Back in 2008, Good Smile Company released a figure of Shiki Ryougi from Type-Moon's Garden of Sinners. It was a hot purchase back then and one of the few re-released by GSC through their 10th anniversary popularity ranking. In some ways it's a mystery why there are so few Shiki figures out in the wild when the demand is clearly there. It's not as if Type-Moon properties are rare counts for the figure collector industry, given Fate/stay Night's Saber being a prime target of complaint from people who just can't stop buying the countless Saber figures out there.

This time around, a new Shiki figure has emerged from Kotobukiya, in conjunction with the release of the Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin movie. She is up for preorder. Regardless of how you feel about figure manufacturers, it is good news for fans of the franchise looking to pick up Shiki once again, or those who found the GSC's figure a little too subdued for their liking. 

It's understandable why it may be difficult to produce and sell more than just a couple high quality figures of Shiki, given her nature as a supernatural assassin who has obtained a sense of emptiness that deeply pierces her psyche and granted her those special eyes. It's tough to put her in out-of-character settings so often seen with other Type-Moon characters, nor does it feel right to do the generic, "put a swimsuit on her" treatment. It's good news for some people that the wait is about to end after more than 5 years. Anyway, check out Tomopop for more details, images and links to preorders!
