I dont see how people would want this,the thought of a lifesize maid in my room would just creep me the f#ck out + I could never spend that much on a figure thats just gonna collect dust in the corner of my room, i realize some might use it for whatever reason ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) but its just not worth it to me.

I have to say, this figure looks a lot better than the previous ones. I can't put my finger on why exactly, but I guess the proportions are better? Well, if this was an Emilia figure i'd be dying to have it. Smile

The life-size figure of Rem is adorable! Anime catgrin
It's quite expensive, but seriously adorable.

Due to high demand, they tripped production from 10 to 30!! At 12k USD a pop, that's some major cha-ching going on there!

At that price, I'm not sure which would kill me first, Rem, or my wife. I put my foot down last week cause she wanted to blow $140 on a handbag.

If the price alone wouldn't be enough, shipping would deliver the killing blow. As that thing is certainly over 30 kg, it would need specialized shipping service...

Obviously, this is for a person who is rich, or is single. She is perfect for the parlor room that has a lock and key.

If I won Powerball or something absurd like that, I wouldn't be against ordering a figure like this...but it certainly wouldn't be in a bedroom or living room or entranceway. It would be displayed in a room with hundreds of (non-life size) scaled models and other types memorabilia in a museum-esque display.

If I actually had the money, I would totally gift this to my friend who actually likes Rem for the shits and giggles. He would probably be so torn over it.

Sure, I'll blow my six month's pay on this animu girl. Let's just call the Department of Education to let them know they won't be getting their loan money back!
