Celebrate the New Sakura Wars with OG Sakura Figure

New figure brings character designer's art to life


While we get hype for the upcoming Sakura Wars game, let's remember the very first Sakura we got to know and love!


A new figure depicts Sakura Shinguji in uniform, stepping out of the top of her Koubu Unit and wielding her sword, Reiken Arataka (no relation). The figure is based on a piece of artwork by Hidenori Matsubara, who served as character designer for the original Sakura Wars TV series and various spinoffs:



The figure stands approximately 185mm tall, and will retail for 12,800 yen excluding tax.



The figure will be sold via GOOD SMILE and other hobby shops starting in July.
