The Kotobukiya Mass Effect 3 Liara Figurine Is Hot, Comes With DLC
At this week’s annual Toy Fair in New York City, the latest official Mass Effect Figurines were unveiled, among them a very sexy Liar T’soni. The figures are part of Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo line of toys (Bishoujo is Japanese for “pretty young girls” but closer in meaning to “barely legal”; the male counterpart is bishōnen”), which basically turns female pop culture characters into sexy schoolgirls. Liara looks especially twisty and naive, which is somewhat appropriate considering at the start of the series, despite being 90 earth years old, she’s still considered a youngling in Asari circles.
This toy isn’t just something for creepy fanboys to have on their mantel, however. It’s also the key to some exclusive DLC for the Xbox and PC versions of Mass Effect 3. That’s pretty cool until you consider that the doll – sorry, figurine – is going to set you back around 60 bucks, a hefty price to pay for what is likely to be some new armor and weapons. Or at least should be. It would be enormously mean for Bioware to make an actual mission pack available but exclusive to Xbox. Alas, we don’t know what the DLC holds in store because no details have been announced. We’ll let you know as more information about Mass Effect 3 DLC becomes available.
