None of the details here are especially shocking, perhaps...
Undoubtedly coinciding with THE WOMAN CALLED FUJIKO MINE, a new set of life-sized statues are being offered up in the likeness of Lupin III, Jigen and, of course, the titular Ms. Mine. The lady will be 5’6 tall, while the dudes will be 5’11 (as relayed by ANN,) and those measurements do sound realistically life-sized.
Like I said, none of that’s shocking. However, what made me raise my eyebrow a couple times was the small detail about these statues all retailing for a price somewhere close to six-and-a-half-grand (a sizable chunk of change.)
Different strokes for different folks, live and let live, and all that… but I’d like to take this moment to run a little informal survey of the Anime Vice community. See, I’ve never been into figurines myself. It’s always seemed like an excess of cash to drop on something that’s liable to break easily, and something that could be traded in for an endless stack of the anime and manga it’s based on.
However, I realize I can have limited views on things sometimes, so these questions goes out to you lunatics. Would you ever make the investment to buy a statue like this? Which you want this sexy thief decorating your living room? Share and discuss below.
