Madoka Magica's Kyubey Plush Toy, Cosplay Suit Offered
posted on by Egan Loo
The June issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Hobby Magazine is reporting on Monday that Banpresto will offer a Kyubey plush toy from the recently concluded Puella Magi Madoka Magica magical girl anime series in August. The apparently life-size plush toy of the polarizing character stands about 21 centimeters (8 inches) tall, and it will be the "B Prize" in its Ichiban Kuji lottery line. People who want the toy must buy tickets and hope they win it among the other prizes in the Ichiban Kuji line, such as the super-deformed Kyun Chara World figures of the Madoka Magica characters.
In a separate development, the cosplay shop Fragment is offering a Kyubey kigurumi costume suit. The 14,800-yen (US$181) fleece outfit comes with plastic ornamentation, a Velcro opening, and a zippered pocket on the back.
The delayed first volume of Kuroe (Chloe) Mura's Puella Magi Oriko Magica side story manga now has a May 12 release date. The third volume of Hanokage's main Puella Magi Madoka Magica manga will also ship next month.
