Final design for 164 centimeter tall figure of alien oni princess also revealed
Crunchyroll previously reported on how Shogakukan-Shueisha's PAL Shop has created a special website to market a limited edition production run of life-sized, 1:1 scale figures of Lum Invader from Rumiko Takahashi's classic sci fi romance comedy manga and anime, Urusei Yatsura. Now the final design of the figures has been revealed:
The figures are crafted by Akiyama Workshop (who have also produced life-sized figures for Neon Genesis Evangelion and Tensai Bakabon) under the supervision of Rumiko Takahashi. HARA PAINT WORKS provides the paint job for both the figures and their bases.
Each "Lum-chan Life-Sized Figure" stands approximately 170 centimeters (5 foot, 7 inches) tall including the base and weighs about 24 kilograms (53 pounds) including the base. The figures are made of fibre-reinforced plastic and the bases are made of steel.
Pre-orders for the figures will be available on the special website beginning on January 22, 2016 at 12:00PM JST. Each figure retails for 1 million yen (about $8568 US) including shipping. The production run of life-sized Lum figures is limited to just 50 figures total, and each comes with an individually numbered base autographed by Rumiko Takahashi.
