Aizu Project represents today with preorders open at Amiami and Hobby Stock for their Shiranui Mai cold cast, first unveiled on February 25th at Wonder Festival 2007 Winter (Moeyo was there, and comes through with a few decent shots of the kit at the bottom of this post). Sculpted by Aizu veteran Shiragami Takayuki, does the exuberantly dynamic pose of this kit have what it takes to face off against the coyness, soft curves, and better paint job of Max Factory’s recent offering? Aizu’s entry debuts in July, so the sages will have a month to ponder the outcome of this most glorious battle. Who knew figure watching could be a spectator sport? (pictures below)
