steins;gate figures

Kahotan from Good Smile Company has shown off the Rintaro Okabe and Kurisu Makise Pop Up Parade figure prototypes from Steins;Gate. The Rintaro figure is in a further stage of development than the Kurisu one. From the picture, it seems that the Kurisu figure has not been painted yet. [Thanks, Kahotan!]

Since they are Pop Up Parade figures, you will not be able to change their poses. Generally speaking, Pop Up Parade figures are fairly small as well. The figures are both still in development, so there might be some changes in the sculpting or color for the final product.

Kurisu Makise is a widely popular character when it comes to figures. Good Smile Company previously released several scale figures of her in various poses and outfits. For example, there is one of her in a bunny outfit, as well as one of her posing with a number of computers.

In Steins;Gate, Rintaro and Kurisu are the male and female leads, respectively. Rintaro, or Okarin, is the self-proclaimed mad scientist and Kurisu is a genius when it comes to neurology and physics. The story of Steins;Gate kicks off when Rintaro discovers Kurisu’s dead body, only to discover later that Kurisu is actually alive. The plot focuses on the concept of time travel through the use of text messages and a microwave oven.

The Steins;Gate Pop Up Parade figures of Rintaro and Kurisu are in development at Good Smile Company.
