This is one of several model kits out there, although it seems only Jessie pops up on eBay from time to time (although yes, I did get this one
from there, too).
Based on the artwork and the fact it's copyrighted to AIC AND iPC, plus the "Saturn Version" written on the back (indicating
it's based on the Sega Saturn game), this appears to be from the games.
It comes with a parts list (in Japanese, of course), two really nice photos of the front and back of a finished figure (and when I say
photos, I don't just mean cheap paper. These are printed on quality photo paper, like when you get film developed), and best of all, a
metal pin of Akari!
I've suspected for a while that pins might come with the models based on photos I had seen, but I never had it confirmed until I bought
this one. I assume the others are the same, but that's only a guess. The pin and model come in their own bags, which are then sealed in
another bag. The collector in me has yet to actually open the larger bag and free the pin, though.
Unfortunately I could not find a year for it anywhere.
Some other information on the figure includes:
