With less than half a month left until release, Sega’s second set of Dead or Alive Xtreme prize figures — depicting Kasumi and Ayane in bikini wear, as illustrated by Yamashita Shunya — finally have a form other than concept illustrations.
The Sega Prize site finally has a page devoted to the pair (the page incorrectly names Ayane as Akane though lol) and also a picture of what appears to be their final form (?), stating an early September release. Not a very detailed picture, but better than nothing hm?
Similar to the first set of Kasumi/Ayane figures, they’ll be roughly 18cm tall. I believe these are sculpted by zenko. (the first set of figures — Kasumi 1p and 2p versions — were sculpted by Tobe Jinto of Heavy Gauge)
the concept illustration we were stuck with till now. Posted back in feb.
Neat…I got a mention on Kotaku lol.
Anyway…just thought I’d let passerbys who didn’t know, these might still be available for order from toy stores (of the import kind):
In case you are wondering about the price disparity between these sites, since these are prize figures, they are meant to be put into the UFO Catcher machines in Japan (aka crane games). Resellers though can get a hold of them and pretty much charge whatever price they want. For example, when the first set of these DOA prize figures mentioned above came out, I saw them go for upwards of $35 a piece.
Moeyo’s got closeup looks of these two figures in a preview/mini-review right here. Honestly it seems that the quality isn’t as good as the DOA Kasumi special prize figure set. Might have something to do with the fact that they’re wearing significantly less clothing though lol. Anyway check out the pics over at Moeyo.
