Without a doubt, the publisher and developer Blizzard’s team-based shooter Overwatch is chock full of popular heroes for fans to play as, with the studio having given each character their own unique batch of skills to set them apart from one another. Of course, most gamers are going to have favorites, and for those who adore the cyborg ninja Genji above all others, they will likely be quite excited about the Good Smile Company officially opening pre-orders for the forthcoming limited edition figurine based on the character for its figma line of action figures.
As seen in the trailer below, Overwatch fans can get a look at Genji in an incredibly detailed figurine form, as he stands just over 6-inches tall and comes with two sets of weapons that include a katana and wakizashi, along with some pieces depicted in mid-throw that are supposed to represent shurikens. Not to mention, the Genji figure has multiple points of articulation in order to allow fans to pose him in a variety of ways.
For those looking to nab the Good Smile Company’s figma Genji figurine, it is currently available to pre-order right now for $65, but it’s important to note that the window to reserve the action figure will close on November 15, 2017, and it’s expected to ship in the middle of next year. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the images shown in the above trailer could possibly differ from the final product, as the figurine’s paintwork is done partially by hand.
As one might expect, this isn’t the first instance of the Good Smile Company teaming up with Blizzard to make a figma representation of one of the heroes from Overwatch. As it so happens, the time-jumping adventurer known as Tracer had her own figma revealed several months ago, with plenty of fans of the team-based shooter laying down their hard-earned money to get it on its release date later this December.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see if any more Overwatch characters eventually receive their own figma model from the Good Smile Company. As the game’s roster continues to grow, though – director Jeff Kaplan has already proclaimed hero 26 to be playable and on the way, for instance – some will likely be overlooked for the action figure line.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
