Here’s a look at the various concept art:
I believe this art was also included in the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon: Official Strategy Guide Collector’s Vault. The images may have been a part of the standard/collector’s guides as well, but I can’t say for certain as I don’t have access to those.

We first heard about plans for a figma of Corrin from Fire Emblem Fates at WonderCon Festival a few months ago. Seemingly from some sort of scan, the first image is attached above.
Corrin’s figma has not yet been dated. Max Factory will presumably have it ready sometime in mid to late 2017.
