    Please, please come to Canada. I need that 2B figure in my life.That and I’m sure the artbook will be filled to the brim with gorgeous illustrations.

    Are you desperate enough to whore yourself out for vidya?

    That’s quite expensive, but everything is this edition is pretty stylish.

    Given how I don’t expect us to get this edition in the West, I hope they’ll at least release that figure on its own so it can be an easier import.

    I-i’m sure since the characters aren’t under 18 it’ll be fine.

    (Actually, how old are the YoRHa models? They at least look like young adults.)

    I doubt that would be a problem, if it was brought over. Square seems satisfied to let Taro do his own thing with little interference, for some reason. I think the only thing they might reign him in on is depiction of sex(going by “The Witch’s Sabbath from Grimoire Nier), though I’m unsure if Taro has ever tried to get that kinda stuff in the game.

    Let’s hope for a black box edition here in the west too!

    Well we’ll see if the Limited Edition makes it to the West then won’t we?

    Because a simple thing like fiction has never stopped the SJW/feminist brigade from digging and looking for things to get offended about.

    Even if they’re aged 18+, that won’t stop them from feverishly trying to find ways of getting offended by it. They just won’t be able to use the ‘They’re Underage!’ card.

    You guys know Square-Enix figures tend to suck right? Like really bad. The big black base just screams “PRIZE FIGURE” lol. I suppose Video Game collectors are used to it, Video Game CE figures tend to be shit but fans just keep lapping them up…

    The only thing worth drooling over here is the lore book and maybe the CD if it has interviews with Taro.

    I love YoRHa No.2’s design… I wonder if it’s because I like Youmu from Touhou

    I hope they make a stand-alone, higher quality figure of 2B in the future. A poseable one would be great too.

    Luckily, with 8-4 in charge of localization, I can fairly safely say this is 1 limited edition I’m not sorry I won’t have access too.

    Although I am sorry I won’t be getting the game itself.

    That figure is super sexy. I’d say I wanted it, but I wouldn’t buy a figure in the first place for more than $15 or so…

    I do still want the game.

    Chinese manufactured plastic crap.
    Rather have the game and maybe buy a high quality figutine later.

    From afar, it looks good, but so did Agnes from Bravely Default and it was HORRIBLE up close.

    Not all figures are bad tough, I bought the limited edition of blazble CP that came with a Rachel mini-nendoroid, and the quality is excellent, and this coming from a figure collector

    I have never gotten a special edition figure that wasn’t a cheap piece of shit.They ALWAYS have either cheap factory paint jobs, bad sculpting, or zero articulation.

    If this was like a Revoltech or Figma or something with articulation and weapons I would bite, but otherwise special edition figures can kiss my ass. I’ll likely just get the standard edition, unless the American SE is different.

    Never, ever buy figures from Japan, then. Those little mini-statues will run you at least $40. $60+ if you want quality. Just stick to Pop figures, or things from the toy aisle at Walmart.

    I grabbed some K-On PVC figures for <$15. I'm happy with them, they look perfect.
