While fans didn’t get the new Darkstalkers game they were hoping for at this year’s E3, Capcom has a little something else that they can look forward to in the meantime, with a new figure for the series’ most popular character, Morrigan Aensland. 4Gamer shares a closer look at the statue figurine.

Additionally, Capcom are having a vote for an alternate color scheme for a  limited edition model:

 

002 003

2P and Lilith colors.

 004 005

Another Color (Dark Ver.) and Another Color (White Ver.)

 

The above four Morrigan color variations can be voted on here. Capcom will announce the winner of the four in July.

 

Additionally, those of you who wish to preorder Morrigan’s original version figure, you can do so on Capcom’s official web shop for 9,936 yen.

    Salt to the wound. Awesome statue, but I seriously want a new game.

  • John Hayabusa

    That thumbnail is such a tease. Another hot and sexy Morrigan figure as usual.

  • Tsuibana

    …am I the only one that thinks she looks high? :I

    • Pyrotek85

      No, her face does look a bit weird to me. Kind of a shame, it’s seems pretty good otherwise

  • 하세요

    I’d love one to compliment my Hsien-Ko one, but…let me get a job first, haha.

    • Hinataharem

      I need a Hsien -Ko figure T_T

      • 하세요

        This is the one I have, but I heard it’s sold out in many places. I have no idea where my ex got it from, but she got it somehow.

        • Hinataharem

          I saw that figure, and sold out. She is my favorite character. Maybe they will make another one of her, like Morrigan here

  • DragKudo

    ohh hello

  • Freakmasta

    Waiting for a new darkstalkers…lol. Good one.

  • ronin4life

    “While eternity passes on and Stars Shine and wane, Check out Morrigans new figurine”

    Fixed for you.
    ^ ,^;;

  • Ixbran

    So when do you think we will get a matching Dimitri figure of him squatting and flexing his muscles under his skin tight suit, legs spread, and showing off his hefty bulge, abs, and pectorals?

    … Yea I thought so.

    • 하세요

      Hell, I was surprised Demitri made it into Project X Zone. They never give the males love.

      • Ixbran

        I can honestly say that as a homosexual male, i am tired of these games i love resorting to stuff like this for merchandizing. Yes, we get it, shes a scantly clad succubus. What I find ironic is that DmC Actually portrayed succubi more accurately than Darkstalkers does with Morrigan. Succubi are actually hideous monsters who only take the form of beautiful women in means Dreams, and have them sleep walk towards their hiding place before showing the men their true grotesque form just before killing them.

        If their going to constantly shove a misrepresentation of succubi in the faces of straight-men/lesbian-women who like it, then let us gay-men/straight-women get the same treatment. Give us sexy posed figures of characters like Demitri, Jedha, and Donovan please? I know its a lot asking straight men to carve sexy statues of men, but if you can please half your fan base, please take the effort of pleasing the other half as well?

        • Bonren

          I feel your pain, but you have to look at it differently. In games like these many of the characters are oversexualized, and that’s just it. That was how Morrigan was intended to be from the start, so that is how they are going to sell anything in regards to her in order for people to purchase these figures. Also, sexy posed figures of men from Darkstalkers would be quite out of place, it just wouldn’t make sense and also would be a lot more difficult to sell…I know it sucks but it’s just how it is.

        • Vanadise

          In all fairness, succubi aren’t *real*, so they can look like whatever the author in question wants them to look like.

          • Ixbran

            True, you’ve a good point. But the base legend of succubi is that they are hideous monsters that take on the forms of beautiful women in the minds of men to lure them away while sleep walking, only to kill and devour them in their true form when they meet in person.

            Not many know this, so I was just pointing it out. While DmC is a load of BS, they got at least succubi representation closer to the original source material than most games.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Wait wait, they took on the form of beautiful women right so wouldn’t they be very sexual before they go for the kill. So what is the problem here again?
            Also you can’t be a straight woman who enjoys the female form?

        • Deekei

          Maybe there is more people demanding for a sexy Morrigan figurine compared to a sexy Dimitri figurine? I don’t think theres anything unethical about this, its all purely capitalism. (Unless you think capitalism is unethical, well, thats your perogative) Having said that, this figure looks pretty hideous, I don’t think the figure can just pull off the art fundementally anyways.

        • SlickRoach

          But isn’t the sexualization just a marketing tool though? I mean if you enjoy the gameplay, story, etc. does it really matter? I just feel it’s an odd side issue to complain about, as a black guy whose favorite genre is JRPGs.

        • Abysswalker90

          You’re wrong about one thing though.

          Straight females and homosexual males don’t come even close to being 50% of the community.

          • Engi3Piece

            A recent reported on videogames states that females makes up 48 percent of the Videogame population.

          • Abysswalker90

            Well, yes.
            If you count casual, smartphone / facebook browser players as gamers.

          • Engi3Piece

            I do actually my aunt waste as many hours into her farmville as I do Persona Golden and I clock in almost 200 hrs. It takes time and dedication to keep it up, I’ve seen her calculate how many hrs it would take for her vegetables to grow and she would plan according to her day. sorta like how I would calculate the levels of my Pokemon for IV and EV training.

          • Pyrotek85

            It’s not that they aren’t gamers too, but the term has become pretty broad, and most of the time when people use the term on a site like this, they don’t mean casual mobile gaming. Nowadays we have to be more specific, that’s all.

        • Pinkemon

          Man, I WISH the game industry would try to pander more to people who aren’t into women/are into more than just women. As much as the anime industry is filled with moe waifu stuff, they still have shows like Free! Iwatobi swim club and the upcoming Dramatical murder anime adaptation. Yet, I doubt we’ll ever see something like a dude version of stuff like Senran kagura. (I know Otome games exist as a genre but they don’t seem to be translated into english as much as stuff aimed at dudes)

        • Engi3Piece

          As of late the staute/Figure industry are trying to do a Wayyyy better job then previous before. Alteir and G.E.M pretty much have a line specifically for the women that showcase really popular guys form anime like the Gintama line (which is a female favorite in japan). and Uta no Pri with the rise of Sports anime as well you can expect alot of figures from Yodwapedal and Haikyuu. Will we ever get a Beach King series, I doubt not for a long time now, but try heading over to AmiAmi male section page we certainly do have quite alot to chose from now.

        • Mopz

          I share the same sentiment but it’s hard reality that majority of Japan can be quite backwards and rather slow when it comes to merchandise and pandering to the non-moe loving fanbase. (Heck, the ire that KyoTo got when FREE! was released!)

          On the western side of the geeky things producers are starting to realize the purchasing power of the “other side” (women/lgbt crowd) and you can see more things in the mainstream with those materials.

          The best you could do is have things customized for you… which is rather sad.

      • DaiRaiOh

        Well considering he was in NamcoXCapcom, it wasn’t really surprising at all he was in the game. It was expected really

    • Hinataharem

      One day

      Also Donovan > Demitri

  • Takane Shijou

    Honestly, not too crazy about this. A lot of this feels pretty off, namely the face.

    • Brion Valkerion

      I know right. Seems to be the problem area with a lot of figures when they are not strictly “anime.” The Ladies of Marvel figures come to mind as well for having odd faces that did not really look right.

    • alley

      Um, I’m not looking the face, anyway.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I stopped waiting a long time ago. I have Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, Darkstalkers 3 and Vampire Resurrection so I’m OK. Anyway, the Morrigan figure probably would have looked better if it was made by SH Figuarts, or Square-Enix

  • http://gamesero.wordpress.com/ Arla

    It’s no the best figure I’ve seen, but I think it looks nice…damn expensive too. I’d vote for the Another Color (White Ver.)

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    I’m convinced at this points that fans don’t want Darkstalkers. They just want to see more of Morrigan. Capcom should just toss her into other games – chiefly the Super Street Fighter IV series.

  • Keepin’em Honest

    They all look cool to me.

  • WyattEpp

    Melon smuggling is illegal.

  • MSJ

    fxxking morrigan, shit is expensive but i’ll likely cave and order some other time…as for the alt. color, it’s really a toss up between white and dark ver. of another color scheme

    • Demeanor

      I really like another white, best imho.
      She’s a bit too chubby though to be the ultimate sexy figure :D

  • Tom

    The eyes look awful and the whole face looks terrifying.

    • aizen310

      She’s a succubus, What did you expect?

      • Code Name Crono

        If she’s a succubus, the exact opposite…..

  • James Enk

    faces must be difficult to pull off

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Man, that looks awfully tempting~ *_*

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    My poor wallet. I really like the White Ver. SMH.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Blonde one looks sort of like adult version Shinobu

  • aizen310

    “New Darkstalkers? NOPE!
    But here’s some Night Warriors costume for Dead Rising 3!
    See?! We’re totally didn’t forget our franchise!

    We just don’t care! :D
    By the way, can I recommend you our umpteenth iteration of Street Fighter VIII?”
    ~ by CAPCOM

    • murinto

      Don’t worry man, someday….
      It’ll happen eventually.

      • aizen310

        They even released the CPS2 compilation game, Darkstalkers Resurrection. For what?! For some quick buck? Or really nobody bought that, just me?
        I fear Darkstalkers is the next Conker.
        You know, “if we want a new game, we just have to make our own.”

        • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

          It’s not like a fighting game with monsters is something they could stop you from making.

          • aizen310

            It’s not like a platformer with a foul mouthed squirrel is something they could stop you from making.

            You CAN. But you’re not the original creator thus capturing the real essence of said characters and their world could prove highly difficult. I could make a new BioShock game, but that would resulting in something very atrocious.

          • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

            couldn’t be worse than bioshock 3

          • aizen310

            :D
            I’ll take that as a compliment.

        • murinto

          Apparently resurrection didn’t sell well at all, and releasing it was some kind of test for the fans.
          But darkstalkers is out there as an ip, so there’s no way it won’t happen eventually. Good things come to those who wait, right?

  • Zalin

    I have always loved morrigan and always wanted a figure of here, but with all the figure’s she has gotten I fell they never have gotten her face right. Her face in this one looks wrong!

  • Kornelious

    Haven’t gotten into figurine collecting yet…..But boobies never get old :P

  • Jon McGuire

    “New Darkstalkers,” that ship has sailed. I’ve given up hope. I don’t think current Capcom would be able to produce a good Darkstalkers game now anyway.

    It’s nice seeing new art by Kinu though.

  • Benjamin Tyler

    I want this figurine for the plot.

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    I’m not a Darkstalker fan, but I would feel pretty miffed if instead of getting a new game, I got a statue.

  • Mc-kun

    I rather have Lilith than an 2P Morrigan.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Lilith fan too!

  • CirnoLakes

    Hi, I would just like to take this time to port beg for a Lilith figurine.

  • Matsuken

    The title should have been “While You Wait FOREVER For A New Darkstalkers, Check Out Morrigan’s New Figurine” While the figurine looks nice, the wait for another Darkstalkers game is not, sadly.

  • fairysun

    I think Morrigan has better chance as guest character in other fighting game instead of starring in the new Darkstalker game.

  • CloudStrifeACC

    What’s with the ‘figure’ of this figure???
