Madoka Magica's Kyubey Plush Doll Offered at Retail
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The manufacturer Medicom Toy will be offering a plush doll of the polarizing character Kyubey from the television anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica at retail at the end of September. Another toy maker, Banpresto, previously revealed that it will offer a 21-centimeter-tall (about 8-inch-tall) plush doll in August, but only as a "B" prize in its Ichiban Kuji lottery line.
Medicom Toy's version will be 400 millimeters (16 inches) long and weigh 500 grams (1 pound). Pre-orders for the 3,490-yen (US$43.60) toy are due by June 24.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica just finished airing in April. The lead character, Madoka, forms a contract with Kyubey to become a magical girl that fights witches in her hometown in exchange for a wish.
