Azur Lane’s popularity in Japan has become quite massive, so it’s not surprising that figure manufacturers are announcing more and more models.
Chiba-based manufacturer Mimeyoi just made a brand new figure available for pre-order, portraying the Royal Navy’s beautiful battleship Prince of Wales.
You can find it on Ami Ami for 29,480 yen, which translates approximately into $278.
The release window is in almost a year. She’ll come in July 2021, so you have plenty of time to save up.
While she isn’t cheap, the price is certainly justified by the massive 1/4 scale. She is sculpted by jarel in collaboration with CREAME, while the prototype was painted by Nana Moriyama.
You can check out what she looks like in the gallery below.
If you’re unfamiliar with Azur Lane, it’s is a free-to-play mobile horizontal scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid currently available for iOS and Android.
If you’re not into mobile games, Idea Factory International recently launched Azur Lane: Crosswave for PS4 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version coming to Japan next week. The western version will soon finally get the DLC shipgirls.
