Personally for 16 grand, I'd prefer a car. Might consider the 1/7 scale if it hits CR's store, as Aniplex's exclusives are wont.

I'd like that to be true, but if you have 16 grand to spend on a figure, you probably have enough money to buy companionship, or at least your parents do.

pretty MUCH!

In the end, there will be those that think less about "if its worth it" and toss money at it like the Fry meme.

this is just outragous who has that kind of money to spend on some life-sized statue. It would be a bit over-bearing having it in the corner of your room collecting dust. With that kind of money you could have anything really. Cars, parties, loads of anime figures etc.

No way people will buy that.....

Fanatical otaku will do really strange things with their money, it's one of the core realizations of Aniplex whole business plan.

Actually looking across a couple sources, she is actually precisely the average height of a Japanese woman. And the average height in most only countries is about the same, to a few inches. So if she is so tiny, then by your reasoning the average woman is so tiny.

It's more because I just thought she was taller than that from the little I've watched of the show

I actually think the likely customers are not creepy otakus, but business establishments that might want to put this on display as an attraction. Might be a good investment?
