While many fans guessed that this life-sized Yuzuki Yukari figure would be a single item made for use by AHS, this figure is actually available for fans to take home! It’s not easy, but dedicated fans can buy her!
FIGUREX only made ten of these limited life-sized figures, all of which will be available for purchase at the Plum Live Shop in Akihabara. As one may expect, she’s quite pricey. This figure costs a whopping 1,280,000 JPY ($12,287.00 USD).
The figure is based on Yukari’s Kappōgi (割烹着) or “cooking apron” design. This design is from a project called “Bell Focus” where Yukari waits on customers instead of a human.
AHS Co. collaborated with Geonexus to release “BELL FOCUS”, a device/gadget for use in food courts, restaurants, and cafes. The device uses Yuzuki Yukari’s Voiceroid+ software.
Bell Focus is handed to customers so that they can place their order; the food and drinks on the menu are displayed on screen. With the concept of “making the waiting time more fun”, customers can also use the device to listen to a variety of voices by Yukari or listen to her singing while waiting for their orders to arrive.
The device has been used in more than 1,000 outlets across Japan. A list of participating restaurants, cafes, and food courts, including their areas, can be viewed here: http://www.geonexus.co.jp/yukarilist/

At the moment, there is no way to purchase these figures online. However, their size would definitely make international shipping incredibly expensive.
