Raphtalia figurine from Pop Up Parade collection is beautiful and on pre-order now

An extremely beautiful Raphtalia figurine is available for pre-order by Good Smile Company this week via their inexpensive Pop Up Parade collection.

Raphtalia, of course, is the half-raccoon demi-human heroine of the popular The Rising of the Shield Hero anime series. The sword of the Legendary Shield Hero.

She, along with the Shield Hero, aka Naofumi, fight the hordes of monsters that deluge everything in sight during the Waves, as well as stand up for those who are not always able to stand up for themselves.

Her Pop Up Parade Raphtalia figurine is not only beautiful, but also affordable as this line of figures is released by Good Smile at a price point more affordable than many other collectable anime figurines.


Features of Raphtalia’s Pop Up Parade figurine

The Raphtalia Pop Up Parade figurine is approximately 160mm or 6.29 inches in height.

She comes with a plastic stand, as she will not stand upright without it, and her sword.

She is wearing knee-high boots and her usual tunic dress. She also has a lovely sweet smile on her face. You know, that smile she often shows when she looks at Naofumi.

Raphtalia is an ABS/PVC non-scale articulated figure that has been sculpted in the fluid, almost flying pose we often see as Raphtalia goes after the monster hordes that arrive in each of the successive Waves.

She is posed leaning slightly forward, with her sword grasped tightly in her hand as if readying to strike.

I am your sword. Wherever you go, I will go with you“.
