New edition figure will be shipped in March 2020
Following the original edition released in March 2019, KADOKAWA has added a repainted version 1/7 scale figure of Rem from Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- wearing cute yukata (casual summer kimono). The color and pattern of her yukata are changed from the original's white and morning glory to sky blue and Japanese hydrangea, respectively.
Both of the 23 cm-tall items from the company's figure brand "KDcolle (KADOKAWA Collection)" are based on a promotional visual for the "MF Bunko J Summer School Festival 2017" event drawn by the novel's official illustrator Shinichirou Otsuka.
In Japan, pre-orders for the 15,180-yen (about 142 US dollars) figure are now acceppetd exclusively on Kadokawa Store, Dengekiya, and AmiAmi until November 10. Its scheduled shipping date is March 2020. Purchasers at the first two stores will also get a 6 cm-tall mini acryl figure using a deformed illustration of Rem drawn by Haruka Komowata, known for her SD style manga/game works.
