The NieR series is one of my favorite series of all time, and the character design is actually what does it for me. You’ll hear so many people praise the music of the game because honestly, it’s amazing, but the character work that is presented in each of the titles is equally magical, with each character receiving a huge amount of TLC, all the way down to the fine details. So when I woke up this morning and saw that Square Enix was teaming up with Play Arts for a NieR:Automata 2A Figure, you better believe that I was one happy camper.
This is a gem of a figure that has been meticulously crafted with a sense of luxury in the costume, the texture of her hair, her delicate expression, her refined body balance, and the coloring that pursues reality down to the finest detail. The 2A figure also comes with a small Type-40 tactical sword, and a variety of hand parts for replacement, giving you the ability to recreate the scenes in the game as you wish. Additionally, the dedicated pedestal in-box is decorated with the YorHa logo, allowing you to enjoy the worldview of the figure to the fullest.
The NieR:Automata 2A figure is available currently for pre-order through the Japanese Square Enix Store for the price of ¥16,280. Once purchased, the figure is scheduled to be shipped to customers in July of this year. Square Enix has yet to make any announcement if this figure will be available on the international Square Enix store, so if you’re looking to get your hands on this figure, you’re going to want to find an alternative source such as a friend or proxy. This is one figure that you’re going to want to have in your collection if you’re a fan of the Nier series.
