[Figures] Latest Shining Wind figure

Shine na Blog today just revealed some prototype shots of the next figure to come in the Shining Wind series of figures by Kotobukiya. She is apparently named Elmina Rhoderia (according to Figure/GK), from a new game in the Shining series, Shining Wind X (pronounced Cross). I guess this makes the 9th figure not counting the Noir version of Clalaclan.

Shining Wind X is a sort of sequel or alternate universe game of sorts to the Shining Wind, which sees familiar old characters as well as new ones that haven’t been introduced in the PS2 game (I think…I haven’t played it so I dunno). It’s for japanese cell phones on NTT Docomo through their iAppli service. That’s about all I’ve been able to find on this game, as the official site for the title isn’t even fully functional yet. I believe there may also be some comics or short novels of the same title that features these characters. There is another girl that can be found in the Shining Wind artbook named Makishima Sakuya that plays a part in Shining Wind X if not already in Shining Wind. I hope they make a figure of her too :3

    haha just one more before the drought? lol

    hmm…somehow she reminds me of Chuubou Sonken from Ikkitousen GG hehe. Her mantle looks like BlancNeige’s, but Shining Wind character wise, she reminds me of Elwing too. Maybe it’s the green and the garter? ^^

    She’s very cute and wearin a very cute dress to boot, but with my recent preorders and subsequent cancellations of recent Shining Wind figures I probably won’t get this till much later if she’s still available ><

    Now that you mention, she does resembles choubou, esp in that sweet pose.
    As usual, no face sculpt for now >_<

    yup…always gotta start with the teasers 😉

    Where’s my Hilda? 😦
    Well I’m sure they’ll get around to both Celestia and Hilda eventually…maybe… they’ve got quite a thing going on here so I hope they see it through to the end and include all the Shining Wind females lol
