Twin Pack: Teddie & TV

Once each month, all the GSC staff gets together for a meeting!
After the meeting I got back to my desk to find something interesting…

PERSONA!!

Oooh! It’s a magazine featuring the currently airing Persona 4 anime series! Plus it looks like there could be a figure behind the magazine…

But it can’t be a Good Smile product… Good Smile always keeps their prototype figures in cardboard boxes… I better hurry up and find out what it is!

002

It’s Phat Company’s…
Twin Pack: Teddie & TV!

From the game released in July 2008, which has recently become an anime which is still on the air – Persona 4, comes a figure of the the mysterious creature that lives in an alternate world inside the television – Teddie! He also comes with the CRT TV that features in the opening of the anime series!

Great job, Phat Company! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ
I know there are tons of fans who have been waiting for some Persona 4 figures! (me included!)
003

This is how they look from the back!

Teddie’s trademark zip around his neck is clearly visible from this side! It doesn’t actually open or anything though. ^^;

The reverse side of the TV also looks great, with that nice retro kind of feeling you expect from an old CRT TV like this one.

004

A closer look at Teddie himself!

Teddie is a mysterious creature that lives in the TV world, he is designed to look like someone wearing a costume. It’s a simple looking design, and yet it has such a wonderfully unique feeling to it!

If you put him on your desk while you’re working, you can always have him looking up at you like this! It’s so adorable! Size-wise he is just a little bit smaller than a Nendoroid. A nice size to display beside you on a desk – plus it’s the kind of figure that even girls don’t need to be embarrassed to put on display beside them!

006

And here is the TV!

Definitely a crucial part to the Persona 4 experience – a CRT TV set! This red TV appears in the opening of the series, as well as in the alternate TV world. I kind of want to pile lots on top of each other like you see in the anime OP. ^^; It really has a lovely retro feeling with the antenna and dials!

007

You could even use it as an extra part for Nendoroids!

Looks like Kyubey is watching something rather startling… I leave it to your imagination to come up with what he was just watching… 😛 You could even stick something over the black area to have the TV actually showing something!

By the way… having read this far, I’m sure there are a lot of you that are thinking something along the lines of…

You’re right! I want them too!!

Hablerie & Izanagi!!

This will also be coming out as a set of two, called the ‘Twin Pack DX: Izanagi & Hablerie”! Izanagi looks to be very high quality indeed! Great work once again, Phat Company! I just hope you’ll be bringing out the human characters from the series as well! Soon!!!

Takamatsu-san from Phat Company has already done a review for this figure! (It’s very interesting, particularly the start!) If you’re interested, be sure to take a look: (Japanese only.)
