Stalked AmiAmi tonight waiting for the exact moment Tohsaka Rin went up for order, then hit it like Panty hit the entire football team in episode two.
FINALLY!!! Jesus Christ Good Smile Company, could you have taken any longer getting Tohsaka Rin to pre-order? How long ago did you showcase her in protoform for the first time? two? three? maybe four decades ago? it sure as hell feels like it. Regardless, I thank you for bringing focus back to Tohsaka Rin, far too many (though wonderful) Saber figures. Rin needs love too! I hope this starts a trend of further Rin figures in various states of dress and undress with varying flavours of garments and undergarments. In fact, it was brought to my attention this poster at the recently held Mega Hobby Expo might indicate yet another Rin figure on the horizon. Here’s hoping!
Rin’s had what seems like so many different iterations over the decades between protoform and pre-order that I sort of wonder what’s going to arrive in June of 2011. Yes, I’m already assuming she’ll be delayed by at least one month past her ‘late May-2011’ release date. I think Rin’s bum looks a bit large from some angles which isn’t exactly unappealing, but I do like a bit smaller of a bum. That said, if Rin asked me if that skirt made her ass look big, I would most certainly tell her “Of course not! Your ass is fucking perfect, can I touch it now?” Also her legs seem soooo long, so long I should be put off by their length but instead quite the opposite. Those are some damn fine legs. Well, I’ll stop there or I’ll end up writing a review on just the promo pics alone. But I’ll say this, if Rin looks like this when I receive her. Best. Rin. Ever. Though, I’ll still love you circa 2005 Good Smile Company Tohsaka Rin.
Rin’s 1/7th scale, 26.5 cm tall, sculpted by Yokota Ken, will retail for ¥8,800 / $107 CAD (Though I ordered at ¥6,540 from AmiAmi) and will likely be delayed but is expected to be released late May 2011. More info as always can be found at MyFigureCollection.Net.
Mmm… Grade-S zettai ryouiki…
