Max Factory’s staff blog updated yesterday with images of the finished color prototype of their upcoming Tenori (hand-riding) Tiger-equipped Aisaka Taiga PVC figure. Taiga is the heroine of Takemiya Yuyuko’s serial novel Toradora!, a work that just launched a manga version in this month’s Dengeki Gao and seems headed on a collision course for animefication in the near future; character design and illustration work for the novel is handled by Yasu, and Max’s rendition is looking faithful enough to hook fans of the franchise both present and future. I’m guessing we can look for a preorder up for this within the next few weeks. (no more)
