Persona 5 figurines shown at Wonder Festival are coming to Snatch your Wallet

Wonder Festival 2017 has come and gone but it showed off some wondrous new figurines that will butcher your wallet. This year’s celebration of the death of innocence, yet the revival of childlike enthusiasm is bringing some amazing new desk ornaments. Some of the coolest however, have to be the upcoming Persona 5 figurines.

From the Good Smile Company, who are renowned for their Nendoroids figures, here is a sneak peak at the upcoming line of Persona 5 figurines. While they did not show off the whole cast, it’s clear they are showing the fan favourites. The protagonist, Sakura Futaba (who is becoming the break out character apparently), Morgana the Cat (in Nendoroid form) and artwork of Ann Tamaki in what will most likely be her pose for the figure. Shigenori Soejima’s work just oozes in style and it is awesome to see it translated to a figurine.

However, Atlus and Good Smile Company decided to do Shin Megami Tensei fans around the globe a big favour. Another figurine showed at Wonder Festival is everyone’s favourite demon ever, Mara. If you don’t remember who that is, it is the Green Chariot Penis (Now you understand why I say innocence dies in the first paragraph). Once again, credit to Destructoid for finding this masterpiece. Although it would be a great conversation starter with that statue protruding from a desk.

Wonder Festival only lasted a day but there is still more goodness being uploaded out of Japan. While no prices have been given for the Persona statues, don’t expect them to be nice to your bank account. For more out of Wonder Festival 2017, we fully recommend TomoPop’s blog, which is doing amazing collections. You can also check out Crunchy Rolls nice round up of some of the best the show had to offer.

The Persona 5 release is looming with the April 4th NA and EU launch. While it has been out in Japan since September last year, those of us in the West have been patiently waiting for the next entry in a beloved franchise. As for Wonder Festival, look forward to the Summer showing in July when you can start crying all over again.
