Pre-orders opened up this week for Di molto bene's 17cm (about 6.7in) DIO statue.
The version's initial colors were overseen by series creator Hirohiko Araki. This figure is a re-issue of the statue that went on sale in 2012. The statue appears to be a shrunk-down version of the life-size DIO that went on display at WonderFest two years ago.
That figure, however, was created by Medicos Entertainment, which has continued to release posable JoJo character figures as part of its Super Action Statue (S.A.S.) line. Di molto bene's figures aren't posable but are gorgeous. Its DIO statues so far include:
Stardust Crusaders DIO costs 7,344 yen (about US$59) and will ship on September 30.
Di molto bene has sculpted characters from Araki's manga beyond the anime series up to JoJolion protagonist Josuke Higashikata.
