Pokemon Red & Blue Gym Leader Misty Figure Coming Soon
The pixelated Misty has been rendered in 3D and full color.
Bandai’s official online store, Premium Bandai, is currently taking preorders through its Gashadepa storefront for a figure of gym leader Misty from the original Pokemon Red and Blue video games.
Misty, known as Kasumi in the Japanese versions, was a gym leader encountered in Pokemon Red and Blue, released for the Game Boy in Japan in 1996. The upcoming figure of the water-type leader is the second figure to be released in the “Next Vendor’s Innovation” series, following a recent figure of fellow gym leader Brock.
The figure, titled “HG Kasumi”, takes the pixelated Misty as seen in the original Game Boy games and depicts the character in 3D form. Every aspect of the character’s sprite is rendered in 3D, from her pose to her outfit, and the figure can be displayed using the included base.
The figure measures approximately 110 millimeters tall, and retails for 3,456 yen. Preorders will be accepted until 11:00 PM on October 30th, and orders will ship in January 2016.
