Sadako From The Ring Joining Bishoujo Figure Series (Update)

At Anime Expo 2024, Kotobukiya officially confirmed that Sadako, the main character from The Ring series of novels, movies, and manga, will join the Bishoujo figure line. This comes after a teaser on July 3, 2024 that showed a video tape and a TV with static on it. On the second day of Anime Expo 2024, the company shared a picture of the painted prototype.

Here’s the official concept art for The Ring Sadako Bishoujo figure. As usual, it is done by Shunya Yamashita. The artist is behind all of the designs for characters in the collection. The art shows her face entirely covered by her long black hair, though a shadow in the background shows one eye peeking out. She will wear a white dress and be surrounded by video tapes. This is a reference to how she spreads and attacks people.

Next, here’s the full reveal from July 5, 2024:

Many horror icons are a part of the Bishoujo figure line. In each case, the design depicts them as a beautiful young woman. So in 2023, one based on the 2017 version of Pennywise from It appeared. Beetlejuice also joined the lineup in 2020. Vampirella is going to be one of the next characters to join after Sadako.

While no prototype of the Sadako figure will appear at the event, other exclusive merchandise will be at Kotobukiya’s booth. The company confirmed it will have Bishoujo figure variants of Cliff Jumper from Transformers, a Medical Officer from Star Trek, and Lilith from Darkstalkers.

There’s no release window for the Sadako The Ring Bishoujo figure. Anime Expo runs July 4-7, 2024 at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
