And Wrench is coming along too!
She’s been a very, very long time coming, but Sky, the bird-loving best pal of Half-Genie Hero Shantae, is finally getting set to join her pals on the CharaGumin kit figurine line. The range already includes the nefarious Risky Books, the mischievous Rottytops, and of course Shantae herself, but soon the quirky quartet will be complete.
As a quick refresher this CharaGumin range, which is handled by premium merchandise maker Volks Inc., these are “kit” style models, which require a little cut-and-paste assembly and by your good self. Fortunately, the pieces are pre-colored, so you only need to connect the segments and apply a few decals before you can display Sky alongside her friends in all of her glory. But if you are a master painter, you can sand off the protective layer and repaint Sky yourself. As you can see from the prototype image below, Sky (and her winged pal Wrench) are already looking pretty fabulous!
According to Volks Inc., Sky should be seeing a North American release around July 2022, just in time for next summer’s Anime Expo event. No price point has been announced, but Shantae, Risky Boots, and Rottytops all retailed for around $85, (not including some pretty hefty international shipping), so you can probably expect that to apply here. The four girls will certainly make for an amazing collection for the dedicated Shantae follower.
Back in the digital realm, WayForward’s Shantae and the Seven Sirens recently received a free “Spectacular Superstar Update,” which rebalances the game, tweaks enemy placement, and includes several additional new modes.
"Sky & Wrench" will be the fourth CharaGumin kit based on the Shantae series!
The figure will be in the same scale as the previous three!
The U.S. release will be at Anime Expo 2022, held July 1st-4th!
Keep an eye out for more updates in the future!#shantae pic.twitter.com/RyICPxXQ5J
