figma Shielder/Mash Kyrielight

“My figma is complete. Heading into battle!”

From the popular game ‘Fate/Grand Order’ comes a figma of the Shielder demi-servant, Mash Kyrielight!

  • Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • She comes with three face plates including a expressionless face with a diligent look, a shouting expression for combat as well as the timid expression seen at the start of the game.
  • Optional parts include her large shield which she uses for both offence and defense.
  • An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
