When First 4 Figures opened pre-orders for their 1:4 Okami Amaterasu Statue way back in January 2016, orders for the statue shattered all expectations, with 1,350 pieces quickly selling out. Soon after, F4F buckled down and started working intensively on more Okami statues. The Amaterasu Life-Size Bust went up for sale earlier this year (and you can still get on the Wait List for it), and as we approach 2018, we’re seeing more and more teaser photos of the F4F Shiranui Statue!
It turned out that the 1/4 Amaterasu was tremendously in-demand, and fans have been excited for the next piece in the line ever since: First 4 Figures Shiranui!
Way back in April 2016 (when the Wii U still roamed the Earth), First 4 Figures posted a poll asking fans which pose they preferred for the upcoming Shiranui statue. Based on the sneak peeks that we’ve seen, it appears that Pose A (the one on the left) ultimately won out.
With increasing production costs and complexity in mind, I would be very surprised if Shiranui retails for anything below $499.99 (and perhaps much more than that).
The First4Figures Okami Amaterasu LSB is currently listed on the F4F website, and the Shiranui Statue is expected to go up for sale sometime in early 2018. F4F’s star has greatly risen and they’re far more well-known now than they were two years ago, so it will be very exciting to see how many Okami fans show up for the Shiranui figure orders in 2018.
I’ll post more photos and updates of Shiranui, as well as pricing and release information, as those details are revealed by F4F. You can follow the Gamer Toy News Facebook or Twitter Pages to get alerts whenever new updates are posted.
Based off the handful of teaser images that we’ve seen of the piece, how do you feel about the Okami Shiranui statue? What do you think this piece will ultimately end up costing, and are you willing to pay out the big bucks for it yourself?
