MegaHouse's GEM line of figures covers a variety of anime series, but it has specifically released characters from the Gintama anime for the last seven years. To celebrate, the figure line opened the "G.E.M. Gintama Commercialization Election - 7 Year Edition" website in September to select one of four figures for release. Choices included Kagura (Two years later version), Sōgo Okita (gender-swapped version), Tōshirō Hijikata (gender-swapped version), and Shinpachi Shimura (with a horse).
Sōgo Okita wearing a school girl uniform and wielding a whip took in the most votes and is now up for pre-order. The figure costs 12,528 yen (US$110) and includes an eyemask accessory.
The GEM line first released Gintoki in 2009 and followed with Toshiro Hijikata, Shinsuke Takasugi, Elizabeth, and many others. A gender-swapped Gintoki was offered in 2015 after an episode reimagined the whole cast.
