Bandai Plans to Release "Summer Lesson" Hikari Miyamoto Life-Size Figure at 2.91 Million Yen
Japanese toy manufacture Bandai today announced that a 210mm-tall figure of Hikari Miyamoto, the heroine in Bandai Namco’s Summer Lesson PlayStation VR game, from its “Figuarts ZERO” line in early August of this year, and that a 160cm-tall figure of her is planned from its “Human size” line sometime in near future.
The price for the Hikari Figuarts ZERO figure, which is her first commercial figure, is 9,504 yen (about 83.80 US dollars) and its first edition set will come with a product code to download her original swimsuit that can be used in the VR game. The code will be printed on a postcard with her message in the set. The target customer for the product are men in their 20s to 50s.
Bandai’s “Human size” line specialized in human size character figures was launched with a 192cm-tall figure of Godzilla (1991 Hokkaido version) that is scheduled to be released this July. Hikari is the second
product from the line. While the Godzilla figure costs 4,482,000 yen (39,524 US dollars), the price for
the human size Hikari is set for more reasonable 2,916,000 yen (25,714 US dollars).
