Premium Bandai will begin taking pre-orders as of 1 pm on Feb. 17 for the latest in their series of G.E.M. figures which is aimed at female collectors. The G.E.M. Series Gintama Okita Sougo Seitenkan-hen figure depicts the popular character as a sailor suit wearing high school girl as seen in episodes 275 to 277 of the anime, and retails for 12,528 yen (including tax and shipping, excluding handling fees).
Okita Sougo came first in a poll hosted on the Megahouse website asking fans which Gintama character they’d like to see in the G.E.M. series and now the request has been fulfilled.
Sculpted by Fukumoto Noritaka (IMC) with paint design by Moriyama Nana (Revolve), the G.E.M. series Okita Sougo is dressed in a blue sailor suit and posed whirling a whip, perfectly capturing all of his strength and beauty in a female form. The figure stands around 190 mm tall and also comes with a number of interchangeable parts including an eye mask.
