Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Liara T'soni figure has been a familiar site to Tomopop readers, and she appeared at Toy Fair. But once again, it turns out Kotobukiya has a few surprises up their sleeve with their rendition of the lovely Asari holding an M5 Phanalax heavy pistol.
Robert Lyle Paske from Kotobukiya's International Sales and Marketing Department talked to Tomopop's Keith Polott, revealing a few new things about Liara. First, her base will have two different inserts (a Mass Effect logo and an N7 logo) that will be translucent instead of the white placeholder. But more importantly, Liara's the first Bishoujo figure in the series to have a ball-jointed head, which means you can pose her head a bit, as Keith shows off in the gallery.
Finally, Kotobukiya just got approval of this ... but remember how those new Mass Effect 3 figures are going to have DLC? Yeaaaaaaaah ... Liara is, too. It'll be exclusive DLC you'll get with buying the figure and it'll be for Xbox 360 and PC only. No word on what it'll be exactly, but I expect not everyone will be happy with the move.
In any case, let us know what you think in the comments, and check back for more Toy Fair coverage here at Tomopop!
[UPDATE: We've actually gotten some clarification on what the content will be. It's a Reinforcement Pack for Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer Mode, which contains a randomized variety of character race and class unlocks, weapons and weapon modifications, ammo, power and health consumables, and more.]
