Unlike most anime made these days, RWBY hasn’t capitalised on the merchandise that could be made from the series. I was expecting a tsunami of drama CDs, dakimakura, keychains, phone cases, and art books. Instead there has been a steady trickle of promising figurines by McFarlane Toys. Recently Rooster Teeth have partnered with ThreeZero to make a figures of the main cast with Ruby being the first one announced for pre-order.
Last summer saw the release of Blake and Yang figures made by McFarlane Toys adapted from the popular web anime series RWBY. While I was critical of the design of all four girls they seem to be selling well enough to warrant a whole second season. This time it’ll focus on the JNPR team starting with their golden leader Jaune Arc.
The last member of team RWBY is now available for purchase at the Rooster Teeth store so now you can finally add Monty Oum’s ladies to your every growing collection of polyvinyl cherry figures. I’ve decided to cover both Blake and Yang together today, or as they are affectionately called ‘Bumblebee‘, because I don’t think I need to spend a large amount of time talking about Blake.
