Chiba-based figure manufacturer Mimeyoi had news to share for fans of the Azur Lane franchise.
The company is going to expand its line of Azur Lane figures with Taihou, Zuikaku, and Shoukaku.
All three will wear the race queen costume featured in a recently-released themed skin set in the game like the previously-revealed figures portraying Duke of York and Prince of Wales, which are already up for pre-order.
In the tweet below you can find the illustrations that will be used as reference for the figures.
Do keep in mind that they won’t be cheap because the scale will be a very sizable 1/4.
