Momohime seems to be quite the popular figure at the moment. She looks unique and well made, and she’s by Alter so it’s no surprise she’s popular I guess.
Momohime appears to be from a Wii game called Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Not having the Wii I don’t have much of a chance to play this game, even if I wanted to. But that’s not really important, what’s important is that Momohime is attractive and unique in my collection. Or will be anyway. I have very few figures that have a real Japanese feel to them, and fewer that have a warrior feel.
In addition to being all of the above, Momohime was also ‘cheap’ or at least not expensive. Her MSRP is ¥8,190 / $92 CAD however AmiAmi has her for 18% off making her ¥6,250 / $70 CAD. I consider this ‘cheap’ now because manufacturers like Kotobukiya charge similar prices for inferior products! Momohime will of course be 1/8th scale, 21 cm tall, is sculpted by Noritaka Fukumoto and will be released in July. I think I do hope she’s delayed by one month though. I can’t remember how my orders are all separated anymore.
