Fans hoping to have Aether or Lumine grace their shelves may have to wait a while longer. The Kotobukiya-produced Genshin Impact Traveler figures have been delayed. An announcement from Kotobukiya delivered on February 20th noted that the figures, which were originally scheduled for April 2023 delivery, will instead ship out in May 2023. Kotobukiya did not specify a reason for the postponement. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]
The Genshin Impact Traveler figures were originally announced back in July of 2022. There are two figures, each sold separately. The figures are based on Aether and Lumine (or Sora and Hotaru, as they’re known in Japanese). They’re made to 1/7th scale, with the Aether figure measuring 270 mm tall (about 10.6 inches) and the Lumine figure measuring 255 mm tall (about 10 inches). The figures are both sculpted to replicate their respective outfits. Aether wears his trademark pants, shirt, and a scarf that merges into a flowing two-tailed cape. Lumine’s white dress is also sculpted with attention paid to its multiple layers and accoutrement. Both are armed with swords and stand on a base meant to look like the grassy fields of Mondstadt, the game’s starting area.
Both figures cost 18,480 Yen each (about $138 USD). Here’s a closer look at them.
In its announcement, Kotobukiya apologized to customers for the inconvenience caused. Kotobukiya didn’t go into details about the delay to the Genshin Impact Traveler figures, other than citing “various circumstances.” It asked for fans’ patience and understanding.
The Genshin Impact Lumine and Aether figures will ship in May 2023. Orders are available via online stores like AmiAmi.
