Goods News: Shining Wind, Shining Force EXA hug pillows coming from Machi Chara

Shining Wind‘s Xecty Ein and Cyrille from Shining Force EXA are to recieve hug pillows featuring their illustrations, according to the Dakimakura Integrated Research Institute. Xecty is 140 x 60 cm while Cyrille is 140 x 45 cm, both are double-sided and expected to retail on November 30th at 10,500 yen. Preorders open at Machi Chara on October 11th, and will probably appear at Hobby Search and other locations shortly thereafter. Most of the illustrations here seem recycled and not particularly fit for pillow use, though the reverse side of Cyrille’s offering certainly has some redeeming qualities… Pictures below:
