There's a fresh new brand on the block for figure collectors: "iDELiTE FiGURE," brought to life by the Craft Egg company. This brand has recently launched a new figure line called "gyoso" (暁想), which features characters stylized to wear traditional Japanese-style attire. Currently, the gyoso line includes three figures: Albedo, Rimuru Tempest, and [S]. All figures are 1/7 scale and carry a premium price tag of around 29,000 JPY (209 USD). As of the time of writing, all figures are available for pre-order.

The first figure in the gyoso line is Albedo from Overlord IV. This figure stands at approximately 154mm (6.06in) in height, 240mm (9.44in) in width, and 195mm (7.67in) in length. Albedo is depicted in a beautiful deep purple kimono, her long black hair flowing down her back. She has everything as per her character: black wings, white horns, and an ahoge, and is seen kneeling with a matching purple color katana in hand. Her kimono has Ainz depicted on it, and she wears white thigh-highs underneath completing her outfit. This figure is set to release in February 2024.

Next up is Rimuru Tempest from TenSura series. Rimuru stands at approximately 210mm (8.26in) in height, 310mm (12.2in) in width, and 240mm (9.44in) in length. He is depicted in a Japanese-style light armor, somewhat resembling a samurai, with a small blue slime resembling his alternative form jumping next to him. His katana is engulfed in blue flames, and he is in an attacking position. Rimuru is surrounded by a purple flame, adding a dramatic touch to the figure. This figure has two versions: the standard (this) and the light version, the latter being cheaper due to the absence of the purple flames. It is set to release in July 2024.

Light version of the same Rimuru figure, notice the absence of purple flames.

The latest figure, [S], was made in collaboration with neco, a famous artist with approximately 330k followers and the original illustrator of the A-Z series. Neco is Japanese artist who draws various sci-fi themed illustrations and already has previously collaborated with other big-name anime figure companies like Myethos, Wing, Max Factory, and more. The character [S] was one of those collaborations and has been featured in another variation by Myethos, making it a truly promising figure.

iDELiTE FiGURE is a budding brand, and since there are no prior figures from it, it may be hard to judge how good they will turn out to be. Given that their price tags match those of top anime figure brands like Max Factory, Meythos, or Stronger, they will need to be of exceptional quality to be worth the investment. The brand has smartly chosen to kickstart their line with popular anime characters, which could potentially draw in a large fanbase. However, the main concern for customers remains the high price point. The only reference we have is the few previous figures from Craft Egg, the same company behind iDELiTE FiGURE. These figures have received positive reviews, so we can hope that the new brand line will continue this trend. Despite the uncertainties, the anticipation for this new brand is high, and it will be interesting to see how iDELiTE FiGURE will carve its niche in the competitive world of anime figures.
