Get Your Nom On With These Emergency Food-Themed Paimon Figurines
Paimon from Genshin Impact finally gets some figurines showing her off amongst some tasty dishes, just as her role of emergency food would have it. The whole meme of Paimon being considered emergency food started as a one-off gag during Genshin Impact’s infancy, but the humor didn’t stop as the internet has adopted that casual off-handed joke and ran wild with it. As the internet rinsed and repeated the meme, it caught miHoYo’s attention, making more and more nods to it, frustrating the local exposition fairy to no end that the MC still intends to stick her in a pot for a quick stew if things get bad. Well, the miHoYo-authorized Genshin Impact specialty store, ACG, is now cashing in on this meme in full force by offering a random box selection of Paimon integrated with some of the in-game recipes. They’ll be $19.98 a pop for one of the random boxes, or $118.88 for the whole set, and pre-orders are currently live and looking at a shipping month of January 2022.
For those out of the loop, Genshin Impact is miHoYo’s ongoing open-world anime-style gacha RPG that takes a lot of notes from Breath of the Wild while striving to do its own thing with a diverse cast, stunning scenery, and probably my personal vote for the best video game soundtrack for anything I played in 2020 (and going into 2021!). But, seriously, if you haven’t already seen the eye candy that this game puts out, check out the link here to get this downloaded on PC (the Google Play store has this on mobile as well).
If you’re unfamiliar with ACG, they’ve been around since last year and got an official green light from miHoYo to sell Genshin Impact-related goods, which now includes these Paimon figurines. There’s been a damn good collection amassing in there, anything from figurines to lightboxes. So if you’ve ever wanted a plushie of Paimon, here’s a good place to get it from!
