Persona is a game title produced by Atlus has been popular throughout the globe for years and years already. Thanks to its popularity, ALTER gave one of its characters a chance to be immortalized namely Aegis.
Spanning 4 titles from the very first one and even having its very own fighting game. Persona is undeniably one of the many best games that is written in this current era.
That said, titles such as this one would not escape a chance to be immortalized as a scale figure. This time we have Persona’s very own Aegis. This figure is based on the ART WORKS Ver. of the game which was splendidly brought to life from paper to statue or figurine as some may call it.
For those who may not know Aeigis, here’s a quick info about her from the game Persona.
Aigis (アイギス, Aegis in the Japanese version and in Persona 3 related publications in Japan), is the 7th Generation Anti-Shadow Suppression Weapon developed by the Kirijo Group. Unlike other characters, Aigis bears the distinction of using an exclusive ‘Tactic’ command, Orgia Mode, which increases her overall attack capabilities, at the cost of being immobile after using it.
Above is the ART WORKS Ver. artwork where this figure was based from. What I am amazed entirely with this figure is that her market price is not that high but the quality of the sculpt is superb! They can charge an additional 20-30 USD for this one yet I would not be bothered by it.
The figure also has weight! That’s right! Figure collectors would note that if a figure has weight, details and the sculpt is amazing then it was definitely worth every penny for the purchase and Aegis apparently has that. She is even bigger than Good Smile Co.’s Black Rock Shooter -Cannon Ver.-
Alter has definitely outdone themselves once again. Their figures are superbly done that money is but no object to anyone who is a fan or just a plain figure collector if they are to get this figure. If you have some cash at hand and also as an advice to fellow collectors. This figure is a must get!
