Ginko Sakata figure
Bandai’s official online store, Premium Bandai, is currently accepting preorders for a gender-swapped figure of “Gintama” main character Gintoki Sakata as female alter ego Ginko Sakata.
The figure depicts Gintoki as seen in episodes 275 through 277 of the “Gintama” anime series, where the main characters are transformed into the opposite gender. The Ginko figure was produced as part of a fan request poll where proposed figures that received over 1,000 preorders would be made. The extremely popular Ginko figure surpassed this amount within 10 days of preorders opening.
Part of Bandai’s high-quality, female-oriented G.E.M. series, the figure depicts the normally masculine Gintoki as the cheerfully feminine Ginko, jumping into the air while her traditional men’s hakama flows around her like a dress. The figure also comes with a miniature super-deformed reproduction of Toshiro Hijikata in his chubby gender-swapped form, known as Tenko Hijikata.
The figure retails for 13,333 yen, tax included. Preorders will run until 11:00 PM on February 1st, 2016, and orders will ship in late June.
