Because we all needed another Persona 5 Joker figurine (honestly why not, his design is cool), a new one has emerged courtesy of Prime 1 Studio. The company released the new figure under their Premium Masterline series and it absolutely shows in the level of quality. As you can see from both the gallery and video below, there is some intricate detail involved in this figure:
Of course all this class comes with a hefty price tag: this figurine will run you $699.00. But if you have the money to spare, it will certainly be a great edition to anyone’s collection. If interested, you can preorder it here. with the estimated arrival date between October 2021 – January 2022.
Previously Soul Wing released their own excellent Ren Akiyama figure. Anime Expo 2019 revealed two new figures of Goro Akechi — a Nendoroid and a Figma. Wonder Festival 2019 Shanghai revealed some lovely Joker and Noir figurines in early June 2019. Back in May Japan’s Mega Hobby Expo 2019 showcased some amazing beauties including from Good Smile, Max Factory, and Alter. In additional great news Amakuni announced that they would be crafting a figurine of the newest character from Persona 5: Royal, Kasumi Yoshizawa.
Amakuni previously showed off their figurines of Ann Takamaki, Futaba Sakura, and Makoto Niijima, as well as a full-color Tae Takemi figurine. The manufacturer also debuted a prototype version of Makoto from Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.
According to reports, Persona 5 Royal (the updated re-release of the original Persona 5) shipped over 400K copies in its first month in Japan. Royal also topped the sales charts in both Taiwan and South Korea. Plus, it was in the top ten for both the UK and US charts during its opening weeks.
Back in February of this year I was able to sit down with the head of Atlus West PR, Arianne Advincula, for a quick interview. We discussed the challenges faced working with a game that has already been released in Japan, changes in the English localization between the original P5 and Royal, how streaming policies have been handled since its launch in the West, the EFIGS localization, and more.
Just recently it was announced that Persona 5 the Animation will be getting a full Blu-ray boxset release this September. Also included is a new English dub featuring the original voice cast.
