Young girl fights her mother’s fashion empire. In the hands of a lesser studio, an anime with this surface premise would surely not fare so well, but Studio Trigger managed to create not only one of the most popular anime in recent years, but a fairly critically well-regarded one too. The anime that shows perfect blend of action and comedy dialed up to the extreme clearly resonated with the critics and audience alike. Taking that into consideration, it is not a surprise that the show inspired so many great figures which we are going to present to you today!
Crashing onto our opening spot is a figure of Ryuuko from Medicom Toy. This Ryuuko figure was released in late November 2014. Ryuuko is sculpted by Perfect Studio with costume production done by Akimoto Mieko and she is a completely pre-painted ABS and PVC figure with some real fabric parts. The figure is 27 cm (10.5 inches) tall. With this item you will get alternate expressions, alternate eyes, her signature scissor sword, and an articulated stand. This figure also has a RAH body which means it is highly pose-able. To own this Ryuuko figure, you would need to pay up to around 18,000 yen (~ 165 US dollars).
Once again, we have the figure of the main character Ryuuko Matoi in her Kamui Senketsu form. This figure from Max Factory was released just recently in September 2014. She was sculpted by Masaki Apsy. The figure of Ryuuko is approximately 14,5 cm (approx. 5.7 inches) tall. Because this figure possesses a figma body, it is highly pose-able. A special form of flexible plastic was used in all key areas which made it possible to keep the proportions without sacrificing the pose-ability. The figure comes with clenched teeth and a shouting expression for fighting scenes, while a smiling expression can be used to envision Ryuuko at her happier moments. Her scissor blade is included in both Decapitation Mode and the standard form. Plus, you will get an articulated figma stand! This completely pre-painted PVC and ABS figure can be yours for just around 19,000 yen (~ 174 US dollars).
The penultimate figure on our list comes from the manufacturer Phat Company. They have certainly published the one of the most eye catching Kill la Kill figures we have for your viewing pleasure. This Kamui Senkatsu version of Ryuuko was released in August 2014. The figure is only 15 cm (5.9 inches) tall and is sculpted by Ken Kawanishi (GRIM ROCK!). Ryuuko is shown wielding her scissor blade in “Decapitation Mode”. With this awesome figure you will also get a standard scissor blade as bonus. This is a 1/8 scale PVC figure with which you will get a stand that depicts a ruined battlefield. You can own this figure for about 20,390 yen (around 186 US dollars).
The penultimate figure on our list is of the despotic leader Satsuki Kiryuin, the series original villain. The figure was released in May 2015 by Medicom Toy. She was sculpted by Perfect-Studio while Akimoto Mieko did the clothing for this figure with the height of 27 cm (approximately 10.5 inches). This completely pre-painted figure is made from ABS and PVC and real fabric. With the combination of the injection parts and real fabric, this figure reaches new heights in terms of realistic feeling! Because the figure has a RAH body, it is highly posable. The figure comes with alternate expressions, alternate eyes, her signature sword Bakuzan, and an articulated stand. To own this Satsuki Kiryuin figure, you will have to pay up to 21,265 yen (around 194 US dollars).
And finally, first place belongs to the one and only, the main protagonist of Kill la Kill – (and for an overall 4 out of 5 places on this list) Ryuuko herself. This limited edition figure of Ryuuko wearing a sukajan was released by Medicom Toy in February 2015. Only 800 of these Winter Festival 2015 special figures were made. This Ryuuko figure was sculpted by Perfect Studio. This is a pre-painted complete PVC, ABS figure that is approximately 27 cm (approx. 10.5 inches) tall. The figure has a highly articulated RAH body which comes with a shirt, a jacket, a skirt, and a guitar case strap made from real fabric. This Ryuuko figure also comes with a special base. You will also get different expressions, eye parts, her scissor sword, a guitar case, and her clothing. To own this figure worthy of Ryuuko, you will have to pay up to around 52,175 yen (~ 476 US dollars)
