ARTFX J Motoko Kusanagi figure

Figure and model company Kotobukiya will be adding main character Motoko Kusanagi from TV anime series “Ghost in the Shell: Arise” to their ARTFX J figure series.

“Ghost in the Shell: Arise” is set in the near future, where cybernetic enhancements allow humans to interface with networks, and a special police force has formed to stop crimes involving this new technology. The figure depicts the augmented-cybernetic human Motoko Kusanagi, covered with plugged-in wires and aiming a snub-nosed revolver. The tough, mysterious cyborg sits atop a detailed base, the ending point for the many wires snaking from Motoko’s body.

The 1/8th scale figure measures approximately 172 millimeters tall, and retails for 10,800 yen, plus tax. It will be released in August.
