Figure prototypist and Wonderful Works representative Kaoru Sakaki shared the completed life-size Mash Kyrielight figure on his Twitter account on Saturday, prior to its debut at the Wonder Festival [Winter] event the next day.
The Fate Grand/Order mobile game character is shown with her shield and ready for battle. The figure was placed next to at twirling, life-size Rem from Re:Zero at the Sakaki Workshops display area at WonderFest.

Sakaki also shared an image of the figure's intial design stages using Pixologic's ZBrush software.
Life-size anime character statues are impressive in both size and price. Each one roughly costs two million yen (US$20,000) and at five foot tall, they can't just be tucked away in a closet when space gets tight. Some of these figures become literal labors of love, like in the case of the Futari-H figure dressed by creator Aki Katsu.
