Akiba Hobby comes at us with a picture preview of Kotobukiya’s web shop exclusive figure — Muse Elf, a long ranged attacker character class in the world of the free to play Korean online mmorpg Mu Online ~Continent of Legend~. The character has been illustrated for the Japanese Mu Online site by Yamashita Shunya if you couldn’t tell lol.
Sculpted by Kawasumi Tomoaki, this figure will be released in limited quantity in May on Kotobukiya’s own web shop, so I guess the only means of procuring a copy of this figure is to have a 3rd party service order for you.
As the face is one of if not the most important part of a figure, I think the sculptor did a nice job in translating Yamashita Shunya’s design. Kind of reminds me of Otoyama Houjun’s work on Mirei-san (of which I’ve reviewed here). I really like that close up shot up above. Though her bangs don’t look as detailed as I think they should be, they frame the Muse Elf’s face well in most views, and look really great in certain angles (ahem like the one above).
The bow has a really exquisite design, but I kind of wonder where the bowstring is? lol
Oh well it sucks that this figure isn’t released in mass quantity… Maybe it will be re-released with a repaint version in the future.
