With the recent success of Atlus’ release of Catherine, it was only a matter of time before a figurine of her would come out. This 1/7 scale statue of Catherine will be released in the same month as another one of Altus’ most popular character, Aigis (Or Aegis).
Although both of these magnificent figures will be manufactured by two different companies, they are both well-known for creating high-quality statues. Max Factory and Alter are both experienced companies in manufacturing accurately beautiful female anime and game characters. Both of them will be released in January of 2012 and pre-orders are open in Japan.
The retail price for the 1/7 scale Catherine is 7,429 yen or roughly $95.00 USD. With her stand, she comes out to be about 25cm tall. My favorite part of this statue has to be her provocative position, pulling up her stocking, glaring at you with those eyes that prays for you to play her game.
The other beauty, Aigis, is actually 1/6 scale, 9,800 yen which is roughly $126.00 USD. The action pose was inspired by the original artwork of Shigenori Soejima. Fans such as myself, should be very excited to see a new figure of Aigis as she is in a brand new outfit designed just for his art book.
During pre-orders, a lot of distributors are willing to ship out products that are released during the same month. Take advantage of this feature and grab both of these amazing releases! Shipping them separately will be rather expensive because of the size so be sure to save up some money by January if you’re going to buy them!
