Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
The first Shantae figure was sold at Anime Expo earlier this month. Series creator Matt Bozon said that if it sold well, Volks would be more interested in making it available online as well.
Volks now has a pre-order page up for the Shantae figure on its website, so it looks like interest at Anime Expo was very high. Orders placed now will be delivered on August 18. Pricing is set at $75.
You can pre-order the Shantae figure here.

WayForward recently unveiled the very first figure featuring Shantae. Unfortunately, its availability could possibly be limited.
WayForward’s Matt Bozon put out a message yesterday confirming that the figure will be sold at Anime Expo 2017. Quantities are also expected to be limited.
Now… what if you’re not attending Anime Expo? Bozon says it’ll be up to distributor Volks to sell it online through its store. If the Shantae figure sells well at Anime Expo, more units could potentially be produced.
