Fans can choose between regular, exclusive, and “twilight” editions of the statue. You can also order a combo that includes both the exclusive and twilight versions. These are essentially the same aside from the color of Alucard’s cape.

The Mario Nendoroid reprint is tentatively planned for the end of August.
