I’ve been slacking, I know. Every time I think I should write a post I end up being too lazy due to work or other things, and today is no different really. So instead of a review, I’m just going to point out a figure I noticed and want over on AmiAmi. I don’t really know much about the figure, or the series, all that I know is that I thought she was cute. I also thought that cord wasn’t her tail and was going somewhere else…
Anyway, mind out of the gutter, the figure is 1/7 scale (16.5 cm) and apparently will retail for ¥5,040 / $58 CAD before shipping costs, though AmiAmi claims 23% off on that price. I’m not sure if this figure is following in the recent trend of exclusives, but I do think the figure is based on a manga that’s receiving an anime OVA adaptation this month. Additionally looking at the pictures, it looks like the black clothing under her rather tight attire is removable.
I do wonder what that tail/cord is for… it looks like it connects to something.
Update (2009-06-12): Based on this image, it appears that Fight Ippatsu! Jyuden-chan!! is actually a TV series, not just an OVA.
Update (2009-06-13): Nekomagic has posted more information about this figure. The figure is a re-release from August 2007. Also states a price of ¥4,800 / $55 CAD. Additionally, the series is by the same creator as Mahoromatic, Ditama Bow. This explains why the artwork displayed on Nekomagic reminded me of Mahoromatic.
