FREEing is going to release the Dalian ( ダリアン ) 1/8 PVC figure from the light novel/manga/anime “Dantalian no Shoka” ( ダンタリアンの書架, Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian ). Will be released in October 2012. Around 105mm tall, 12,191 yen.

I don’t know which Dalian is this figure based on. Her outfit is based on the anime for sure, but it seems to me that her face and body proportion are based on the light novel. A hybrid maybe?

A lot of you should know that I don’t really like FREEing so I know I’m bias. I don’t know what FREEing is smoking. How can they give this small 1/8 scale and low detail Dalian PVC figure a 12,191 yen price tag? Are they insane?

——Description from Manufacturer——

The sharp-tongued superintendent of The Mystic Archives of Dantalian.

From ‘Dantalian no Shoka’ comes a figure of the young Dalian, sculpted in a very peaceful pose reading one of her beloved books.

She is posed sitting on the floor with her huge skirt and long hair both flowing down to the ground. Even though she has a book is in front of her, she is looking up showing off her beautiful face – an innocent expression that hides the abusive language that is bound to come out at any second!
