After making Edward Elric even more “chibi” in an adorable teaser visual, Sanrio has now finally unveiled their Fullmetal Alchemist collaboration goodies during the Sanrio Expo event. Actor Shinji Uchiyama, who plays Gluttony in the live-action film, was also on hand during the unveiling. He even talked about the movie as well as helping reveal these new Sanrio goodies.
The character designs have five different variations. These include “pea-sized runt,” “lovable stew,” “lovable apple pie,” “incompetent on rainy days,” and finally, “Fate Line”. They then place these five different styles into different merchandise, which range from plushies to keychains. The company will also offer up other merchandise such as bags, key chains, mugs, necklaces, and many more.
Tokyo Character Street’s Ichiban Plaza will also be launching a special pop-up store for the collaboration this November. And then, retail stores Kiddy Land and Tokyu Hands, will then be selling them sometime in December 2017.
Sanrio will also be holding a collaboration exhibition with the live-action film. They will first hold it at the Tokyo Dome City Gallery AaMo from 16th September until 19th October. They will then head to Osaka’s ATC Museum from 3rd-30th November. As for the film itself, it will be making its Japanese premiere this 1st December 2017.
