Way back in December 2021, Kotobukiya announced it would release a figure of Dohalim from Tales of Arise. Now, it seems one step closer to it being available. The company started sharing images of in-development figures at various stages on February 3, 2023 as part of a Kotobukiya Collection 2023 [Winter] event. Among them was an unpainted prototype of Dohalim.
First, here’s the official announcement tweet. It includes a link to the official site. There, it notes Dohalim will be a 1/8 scale figure.

Dohalim isn’t the only Tales of Arise figure from Kotobukiya. A number of others showed up. For example, Rinwell pre-orders opened back in April 2022. Also, back when Dohalim was announced, the company also showed off an Alphen prototype.
As a reminder, Dohalim is one of the six playable characters in the game. He’s the Renan Lord of Elde Menancia. He’s known for both his artes and ability to attack with a rod, which he can be seen wielding in this figure.
There’s no release date yet for the Tales of Arise Dohalim figure. Tales of Arise is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
