Good Smile Company is opening up pre-orders for the re-release of the “Idol Emperor Nero” figure, which is based on the character from Fate/Extra and Fate/Grand Order.

The Idol Emperor Nero figure is a 1/7 scale figure that is approximately 190mm in height. The design of her dress is highly intricate, with roses and frills around the entire outer skirt, and her hat also looks like a ribbon-adorned rose. She also comes with a couch.

The Idol Emperor Nero figure originally came out in November 2018. It uses the joke Nero design from TMitter2015. TMitter2015 was an April Fool’s Twitter event that ran in 2015. The interconnected story-line could be reconstructed by following the various parody accounts. Imperial Roma Productions was the entertainment agency that appeared during this event. Talents who are a part of this fake agency include Nero, Sakura Matou, and Astolfo.
Good Smile Company recently closed pre-orders for their Jeanne d’Arc figma, which is also a re-run. However, a Fate series figure from Good Smile Company that is still available is the Summer BB scale figure, which comes in two variations.
Fate/Grand Order is readily available on mobile devices, and Fate/Extra, Nero’s origin game, came out on the PlayStation Portable in 2010. The remake, Fate/Extra Record, is in development. The Fate/Extra Idol Emperor Nero figure, which is a rerun from 2018, is open for pre-order until May 17, 2021.
