While attempting to hunt down a copy of Comp H’s vol. 3 today amongst the local bookstores (no luck… it either sold out in a day or the shipment is extremely late, and I fear the latter is an overly optimistic prognosis) I decided to browse through the recently released May edition of Hobby Japan. Amidst several items of interest one thing stood out in particular: this charming pair of Rei and Yoshino figures from Maria-sama ga Miteru. I got all excited, only to examine the article more thoroughly and find that they’re a limited edition item available only by clipping out a special seal from the magazine and sending it in along with three box-tops to HJ by May 10th, who will then lovingly craft the box-tops into figures and send them back in four months time. If only box-tops were a global currency, what a world it would be! Scans below:
