Earlier this week, Good Smile Company and Wonderful Works announced that the companies are releasing a standing scale figure of NiCO, the blue-haired scientist introduced in Dead or Alive 6. This will be the first DOA6 -inspired figure to release since the game’s launch.
The figure will be 1/7 scale, and is based off popular Japanese artist Fuzichoco’s design. NiCO’s hair has a bit of a translucent look to recreate Fuzichoco’s design. Focus has also been put into recreating the white scientist coat that NiCO wears, as well as the plasma that NiCO uses to attack enemies with via her three ‘EMF’ rings in Dead or Alive 6.
The figure comes with an extra hair part to recreate the extra hairstyle available via customization in Dead or Alive 6, where one of NiCO’s eyes is obscured by her hair. Additionally, the figure stand is themed after her home stage, the laboratory, and thus bears a mechanical look.
Check out some more screenshots of the figure below:
Currently, the figure is available for pre-order via Good Smile Online Store, and pre-orders will stay open until July 1, 2020 at 9pm JST. The figure is set to release in December 2020, and will cost 17,800 yen (plus tax; equivalent to around $166 USD).
Dead or Alive 6 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The free version of the game is currently holding five weeks of free character weekends.
