Continuing with my plan to buy this whole set of figures I’ve ordered Max Factory’s Touka Kureha.
Max Factory releasing Seena first seems to have worked out well for them, at least with regards to my tastes. Seena had a great figure, nice breasts and a wonderful pose, so I made the decision that I would buy this whole set. Now Max Factory has released Kureha for order and while she appears to be well done she seems to lack the elegance of Seena and also against my taste, her breasts are quite large. Early in this game I’m already somewhat regretting my decision to buy all 4 figures, but really my only issue with Kureha is her breasts are too big, and I feel that’s a petty issue for an otherwise well done figure.
Kureha is sculpted by Nanako, who also did Seena’s sculpt work. Following with the set she’s 1/7th scale and measures in around 23 cm tall. Her MSRP is ¥6,800 / $73 CAD however as per usual, retailers have her for cheaper, AmiAmi has her for their seemingly usual discount of 19% off. Her expected release date is somewhat far off at September 2010, which surprises me because I thought these figures were all going to release a month apart from each other over the summer months. Perhaps I’d misunderstood.
