Myethos is going to release the Zhao Linger ( 趙霊児 ) non-scale PVC figure from the Taiwanese game series “The Legend of Sword and Fairy” ( 仙剣奇侠伝, Chinese Paladin) developed by Softstar. Will be released in April 2017. Around 190mm tall, 11,800 yen.
Back in the 90s, there wasn’t many Japanese PC games available for x86 (Japanese used PC-98). And my friend and I didn’t really like English RPG games so we played Taiwanese games instead. I played “The Legend of Sword and Fairy” in mid 90s and I loved it! I believe it is still one of the most popular RPG series in Taiwan.
Well anyway, you may wonder what the heck is that figure (?) above. Believe it or not, it is Zhao Linger!! This figure was bundled with the limited edition “The Legend of Sword and Fairy 3” and it became one of the earliest “Evil God” figures in the figure history (earlier than the Evil God Saber). XD
——Description from Manufacturer——
From the iconic classical action role-playing game, “The Legend of Sword and Fairy”, Myethos presents Zhao Ling Er in her best form! All fans of the game would definitely remember her fondly as she carries the weight of saving mankind on her tiny shoulders. Riding the waves made by the wind that carries her Celestial Spirit Manteau, each step she makes is magnified with the lotus flowers blossoming under her feet. The staff she holds is carved with great detail and all 3 of her sacred treasures are made to be removable so that one may enjoy looking at her as an ordinary girl too! Won’t you come join her as she floats through the waters of a world filled with heroes and gods too?
