Superb PS2 RPG Odin Sphere is finally giving rise to some stunning figures, and probably the most moeful of them all is this rendition of doomed faery princess Mercedes, along with her frog companion.
The figure is a non-scale sculpt (18cm high) of her, and is by Yamato.
It would have been nice to see her crossbow given a proper crystal finish, but otherwise the figurine seems completely accurate. The only thing missing is the charmingly cheeky voice of the original seiyuu…
Kaeru (Prince Ingway trapped in amphibian form) is included as an added extra, and is as faithfully realised as Mercedes herself, if not quite as appealing.
Mercedes goes on sale in August; pre-ordering is advisable.
Those who have not yet played the game should be advised it is near the pinnacle of RPG and story telling finesse on the PS2, and is easy to recommend. Both English and Japanese versions (with a star seiyuu cast) are now available cheaply.
You can see her in even greater detail at source Akiba Hobby…
