Originally scooped by Shingo @ Heisei Democracy in his posts here and here from Hobby Japan magazine previews, the collaboration work between Nitroplus illustrator Niθ, figure maker Kotobukiya, model building TV program “Plamo Tsukurou Custom,” and sculptor Shirahige Tsukuru has resulted in an original figure creation that looks pretty sweet.
I believe Kotobukiya will be showcasing a completed resin kit version with a limited number of kits available for sale at the upcoming Winter WonderFest 2008 before public announcement…or somethin like that. My japanese isn’t the best so I can’t read it all too well! Anyway, there is no price for the kit set yet, but it doesn’t really matter to me cuz I’m not in Japan and I have no idea how to model and paint a resin kit. My only hope is if they turn this into a PVC figure haha!
Some of the features are a bit off from the original illustration, and imo I think they could have used some lighter shades of colors that aren’t as harshly contrasting (mostly the hair and eyes), but hey at the end of the day, I still do want lol.
