Those who have been following HD for awhile may remember our coverage of Edelweiss, the late ’06 eroge release from maker Inspire. Since its announcement I was particularly taken by the distinctive artistic style of character designer Jinguuji Rio and her protagonist Fumie; I was therefore overjoyed at the news that Orchid Seed would be producing a three dimensional version of her to compliment the 2D cutout that was released at Comiket 70. Orchid’s Fumie is set for November release at 6,800 yen, 21 cm tall (1/7 scale), is sculpted by veteran Ishinaga Sakurako (who deserves a post of adulation in her own right) and will be available for preorder soon. Pictures below:

I expect this will not be a figure that meets with uniform praise, but as a change from an endless parade of saucer-eyed anime protagonists I dig her slightly alien look a lot.
