Hobby Stock just put a preorder listing up for a new Yamashita Shunya designed PVC figure, dubbed Kokona. She’s coming from Movic in October at 6,090 yen retail, 25 cm tall (1/7 scale?), with sculpting duty handled by Ishida Eiichi of studio DRESS; I was surprised to see this listing today as in the past couple of years Yamashita has consistently announced new figures on his blog before they appear anywhere else, but as a fan of his work I’m happy to see a maker finally branch out into the fantasy side of his portfolio. Pictures below:

I like this design, but given the huge flood of Yamashita figures in the past year her impact is considerably less than it could have been. I’ll need to look over other October preorders before making a decision…
