Many years have passed since the beautiful and haughty Juliana Everhart made her first appearance in Valkyria Chronicles 2, but now she’s coming back with a vengeance.
Tokyo-based figure manufacturer Phat Company just made a new one portraying Juliana available for pre-order at several Japanese retailers, including AmiAmi.
The price is 13,500 yen, translating into approximately $125, and she will be released nearly a year from now, in May 2020.
The illustration that inspired the figure was created by Character Designer Raita Honjou for the mobile and browser game Valkyria Chronicles DUEL, which actually ended its service in 2015. Yet, the art was so good that it’s still getting figures.
The scale is 1/7 for approximately 250 mm of PVC and ABS. She is sculpted by Yadokari and painted by Wakimeka no Matsu.
If you’re unfamiliar with Valkyria Chronicles 2, it’s likely the most polarizing entry in the series. Not only it moved the franchise to PSP (a trend which continued with the third game, that was never localized probably due to the platform, which is a massive pity), but it also changed the tone from the first game rather radically due to its school setting.
Fans had to wait until last year to finally get a new Valkyria Chronicles game localized, with Valkyria Chronicles 4. I would personally love a localization of the third title at some point, but I’m not holding my breath.
