To commemorate the 15th anniversary of Game Center CX, the variety show which showcases comedian Arino Shinya’s attempts to clear various (mostly retro) video games, an action figure of Arino is going to be released under Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts action figure line.
Arino’s face was replicated using 3D scan technology, and two versions of the figure, each with different accessories, are being released; One will be available only through Bandai’s online store Premium Bandai and will include a clock at 10:00, a canned drink, and a plate printed with the pixellated king character which appears in the show. The other will be sold only at Tokyo Game Show 2018 (September 20-23 2018) and will include a clock at 11:30, a bag of dried squid and hand parts to hold said squid, and Arino’s business card and hands to hold it. The figure is priced at 6,480 yen (tax included) and is currently available for pre-order on Premium Bandai.
