Good Smile Company has announced a new scale figurine of Ann Takamaki. Ann first appeared in Persona 5 and then again in Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight. The 1/7 scale figure is being released by Phat! Manufacturer.

The statue of Ann is fully painted and has minimal assembly. Inside of the packaging, buyers will receive the statue of Ann and a translucent red base featuring the game’s logo. The base comes with a tab to insert into Ann’s left foot to make her stand in place.

Ann has been carefully recreated as a statue. She is shown wearing her “Ball Stage Outfit” and was replicated from the game’s key visual artwork. The paint was carefully done to replicate the character, down to her spiked armband and hair curls. The statue also sports real tights that have not been painted on.

Ann’s statue also comes with a removable hat for those who want a different display option. The Good Smile Company store page for the statue has more detailed photos of the figure for those considering purchasing.

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight was released by Atlus in December 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The game focuses on the cast of Persona 5 in a rhythm-game setting. Characters dance to songs while players hit buttons to the beat.

After the game was released, additional DLC came out later, featuring more characters from Persona 5 like Goro Aketchi. Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight contained the cast of Persona 3 as partners and additional support. Together, the stars of Persona 3 and 5 battled against enemies using stylish dance moves.

There have been few figures and statues of the Personal 5 characters in their Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight outfits. However, there are two more Persona 5 statues available from the company. They include Goro Akechi as Crow and Joker, leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.

Those interested in purchasing the statue can preorder her now until November 26. Good Smile Company has a dedicated US shop but also international partners for those purchasing overseas. While buyers can purchase from the Japanese website, the country is currently restricting shipments internationally due to COVID-19.

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight’s Ann Takamaki figure is scheduled to release in October 2021.
