Disgaea 1/7 Scale Etna Figure - New Import, In Stock

In the Disgaea game, Etna leads the Prinnies with guile and two-faced ambition. She's another challenger to King Krichevskoy's throne but a competent Laharl player can wrestle her to his side as a supporter for proper ascension. On the other hand, an incompetent Laharl player will face death at Etna's hands. The ginger-haired demon is a memorable character for her impish ways and toy manufacturers have sculpted Etna in numerous poses and postures.

Griffon Enterprises throws their hat into the ring and sculpts the impish rabble rouser in an impish manner where Etna is apparently crawling towards the throne while peering out with her crimson peepers. Three bracelets are linked to the figure with two red ones around her wrists and a a silver ring locked around the vinyl noose around Etna's neck. Little bat wings protrude from her back and a wily tail snakes from beneath Etna's shiny black skirt. White dainties may be spied if you should decide to spin her around for a gratuitous view from behind. The figure is set at 1/7 scale and measures 11cm or 4.33" in length. Preorders
