With Bandai Namco’s recent JRPG Tales of Arise achieving a certain level of popularity among fans, Japanese figure manufacturers are starting to set things in motion.
Today Kotobukiya made a new figure portraying Rinwell available for pre-order. You can find her on AmiAmi for 13,800 yen, which translates approximately into $110.
She will be released in October 2022, which definitely isn’t a bad lead time considering today’s extra-long standards.
The scale is 1/8, so the figure isn’t massive, measuring about 205 mm in height. The prototype was sculpted by iTANDi.
You can check her out below alongside an official description.
“Rinwell from Tales of ARISE is coming to life as a 1/8 scale figure.
With a cute smile on her face, Rinwell is posed as if she is gently springing forward.
Rinwell’s charm is fully shown through smile, and extra attention has been paid to recreating the characteristic design of her outfit and magic book based on references from the series.
Her uniquely shaped arm covers and embroidery on the hems of the back of her jacket have been sculpted in detail.
To show the difference in material on her small pendant, the glass section has been recreated using clear parts and the metal sections utilize metallic paint.
Great care was taken in recreating the fine details of her magic book, such as the pattern on the cover, the aged feeling of the pages, and even the complex letters written on it.
Display her together with the upcoming Alphen to recreate the world of Tales of ARISE.”
