posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The doll brand Ring Doll showed off images of its upcoming Victor Nikiforov collaboration model on Twitter on April 10. The ice skater looks lithe in his skating costume from his medal-winning Free Skate program.
The doll's design is currently in progress and Ring Doll will update prospective customers as changes are made. Currently there is no price point for the Victor doll but Ring Doll's adult-size models usually sell for around 62,080 yen (US$554).
The original 12-episode Yuri!!! on Ice television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Funimation also streamed an English broadcast dub, and later released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on February 6.
Manga creator Mitsurou Kubo (Moteki, 3.3.7 Byooshi) and director Sayo Yamamoto (Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Michiko & Hatchin) are credited with the original work for the franchise. Yamamoto directed and oversaw the scripts for the series, and Kubo designed the original characters and drew the storyboards.
An anime film is slated for this year.
