The Figma line of poseable figures is a fan favorite around Tomopop. We've seen countless characters from anime series, video games and even original character designs become part of the Figma line. But tonight, we introduce a whole new category to the Figma line.
Say hello to Doala the Koala, mascot for the Chunichi Dragons of Japanese professional baseball's Central League. The Nagoya-based Dragons are the defending Japan Series champions, which probably gives us the reason Doala has been made into a Figma in the first place. Doala features several accessories, including an extra set of hands, a glove, bat, and oddly enough, a sandwich. It should also be noted that Doala's inner ears are actually filled with a fuzzy fabric.
Doala is set to drop in September at a price of 2,500 yen, which is pretty standard for the Figma line. Amiami has a pre-order for Doala already, so check them out if you're interested in one.
I was never lucky enough to actually go to a Dragons game when I was in Nagoya two years ago, but it's nice to know I can now have my own Doala Figma. No world yet if other mascots like the Hanshin Tigers' TO LUCKY will get the Figma treatment, but we can only hope. Especially if our name is Brad Rice.
