Megahouse Persona 3 Thanatos Figure Shown

Yet another Persona figure appeared at Megahouse’s MegaHobby Plus 2022 Winter showcase. This one is Thanatos from Persona 3. The company confirmed it would rerelease the Game Characters Collection DX statue that first appeared back in January 2020. There’s no price or release window for the rerelease, however the original release was 23,000円 (~$200).

The rerelease of the Persona 3 Thanatos figure is being described as an Anniversary Edition. Like the first run, it will still be almost 12 inches tall. Though that height does take into account the Persona’s sword. Translucent effect parts appear to make it look as though he is in the middle of an attack. The Persona plays a major role in the game.

Here’s how it looks from various angles.

This is one of two Game Characters Collection DX figures from the series to show up in the second phase of the event. Megahouse also revealed a Persona 5 Loki figure. That one is quite early in development. As such, only concept art appeared.

Persona 3 is available on the PlayStation 2 both in standard and enhanced FES editions. Persona 3 Portable appeared on the PlayStation Portable. The Persona 3 Thanatos figure doesn’t have a release date yet.
