From the popular Phantasy Star Online series is Gene from the mobile game Phantasy Star Online 2 es. This figure is based on all new illustration by Nidy-2D- made specifically for this statue!
Gene can be seen in her Stella Memories outfit, and the hard and soft parts of her outfit are painted in a different manner to give off a more realistic appearance in each detail.
The hair has been sculpted to look as though it is flowing in the wind, and the silhouette of the figure perfectly resembles the essence of Gene’s character. Gene’s infamous green streaks are also painted into the hair naturally. The head part holding her hair up has also been painted with fine detail to seamlessly add to the feel of this statue.
Nidy-2D-‘s illustration puts an emphasis on Gene’s shoulders as they can be seen peeking out of the knit sweater. From the texture of the sweater to the way it seems to be sliding off of her shoulder, all aspects from the original illustration have been perfectly captured.
The Luminous Unit wing that can be seen on her back uses clear plastic to add an elegant and shiny appeal to the statue, as can be seen in the original illustration.
Markings all over her body have been fully reproduced as well.
Enjoy this Gene statue that perfectly replicates Nidy-2D-‘s illustration and the essence of Matoi as can be seen in the game. This statue has been fully approved by the PSO2es team! Get your hands on this figure and enjoy all the details in person.
KOTOBUKIYA Company first began as a single toy store for dolls operated by Jusaburo Shimizu in 1947. In 1951, he re-created his sole proprietorship into a limited liability company, together with his two brothers.
While always continuing to focus on retail sales, KOTOBUKIYA first venture into original products as a model kit manufacturer began in 1983 with Armament, our first original model kit. This was followed in 1985 with King Godzilla, our very first licensed kit.
What really set apart KOTOBUKIYA from other model kit manufacturers was the acquisition of the model kit license for Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam THE-O mecha, the first time a company other than Bandai was able to release Gundam products!
Our first foray into the non-kit business was in May of 1989 with soft vinyl statues and the Active Styling Figures (today branded as ARTFX Statues). Since then, we have increased our lineup with fully assembled and painted resin statues (now known as KOTOBUKIYA Fine Art Statues), Action Figures, One Coin Mini Figures・nd more!
As a model kit manufacturer, we were always striving to further improve the material and detail and articulation of our kits. That level of commitment has continued throughout all product types that we have developed, and KOTOBUKIYA is renowned for our quality and dedication to craftsmanship.
In our retail stores, we hold annual sculpting and painting contests, which is judged by our in-house and other known sculptors and outside judges, including the editor-in-chief of Hobby Japan, the Japanese model magazine. The number of entries normally exceeds three hundred, with entrants from all over Japan. In fact, some of our in-house sculptors originated as entrants into the contest and other toy manufacturers have scouted many others!
Over the years, were attracted the attention of not only top artistic talents, but also the favor of publishers and licensors who wish to work with only the best the toy and collectible industry has to offer.
