In a late afternoon announcement today Amiami posted a preorder listing for an ero-ero Rio (Rio Calendar 2007 ver.) PVC figure from Super Black Jack (a game commonly found at pachinko parlors). In a departure from previous Super Black Jack figures her top appears to be completely castoffable, sure to make this a high-demand item; sculpting duty is from Ranmaru (also responsible for the recently HD reviewed Shingyouji Mao), with production by Orchid Seed. She’s scheduled for release in November at 1/7 scale (19 cm tall) and 6,825 yen retail; as the name suggests she’s based off the cover illustration of the official Rio 2007 Calendar. Update: high resolution pictures below:

Note that we don’t have official confirmation yet of her castoff status, so if you’re thinking of a purchase based on that criterion it might be wise to hold off until we know for certain. We’ll be looking for an official Orchid Seed page update soon.
