Character placed third in 2012 GEM series fan election
Last year, Bandai and Megahouse ran a Gintama fan election for the female audience targeted GEM premium figure line, with reproductions of the top 3 promised. Previously, #1 - Kaguya #2 - Toshiro Hijikata ver. Kai and number #5 - young Gitoki have already hit pre-order. We're now getting #3, but rather than from the GEM label, Megahouse has teamed up with Alter to release Kyubei Yagyu under their joint Alpha x Omega line.
The 19cm Kyubei will be released in October for 7,000yen ($70).
