Demand for the life-size statues of Megumi Kato, the video game heroine conjured up by Saekano's Tomoya Aki was so great that Aniplex doubled production from 10 to 20 statues. Each statue measures 158cm (62in) high for 1.98 million yen (US$16,751).
Like most expensive, limited edition memorabilia, interested customers can enter their information into a lottery. The 20 winners will be able to purchase the statue. Entries are only accepted until February 14.
If you don't have anywhere in your apartment for a full-size Megumi, Aniplex also announced a more manageable 1/7-scale figure for 10,800 yen (US$91). The 1/7-scale figure is available for preorder until February 29.
Both figures are on display at the "Saekano SHOP2016" until January 24 at the Tokyo Anime Center in Akihabara.
