The competition for Re:Zero's honorary "best girl" may be continuing because FigureX recently unveiled its life-size figure of Rem. The figure stands about 149 centimeters (about 4'11") tall with the pedestal, and she costs 1.48 million yen (about US$12,600). Due to fan demand, FigureX expanded the limited release from 10 to 30 figures.
Subaru's companion wears a maid outfit and holds a mop in this real-world recreation. FigureX is using a digital mold and high-performance 3D printer to create the figures. Details like the frills and ribbons on the maid clothes get the attention they deserve to make a faithful model of Rem. The base conceals a speaker.
The figure's preorder period opened on Saturday, and it will close on February 2. The figure will go on sale in August, and orders will ship in the order they are received.
FigureX announced the 1:1-scale figure in November and revealed an illustration that inspired the figure's design.
FigureX is creating a life-size figure of Oreimo's Ayase and also made life-size versions of Renge from Non Non Biyori and Vocaloid Yuzuki Yukari. Other life-size figures include Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress' Mumei, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness' Momo, Urusei Yatsura's Lum, and Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata's Megumi.
