Akiba Hobby represented last night with a review of a post-production PVC sample of Yamato‘s Cobra-Kai sculpted Dynamite Keikaku Kanu Unchou figure from Ikkitousen. Overall production quality is looking great, but one possible cause for concern is what seems to be the thicket of bangs now covering her face. They were there in moderate profusion before, but now it looks like she’s staring out from the mouth of a blue-fanged Tyrannosaurus Rex with very bad orthodontics. Comparison shots below:

It’s impossible to tell whether this affects the entire PVC run or just the sample Akiba Hobby received, but regardless I don’t see it as too large a stumbling block for the kit; one that if necessary could be remedied with a bit of minimal heating and bending.

With the emergence of a PVC sample it seems shipping is just around the corner (she’s officially scheduled for release in December), so this is a good time to get in a last-minute preorder before she vanishes entirely. If you’d like to support HD Play Asia has her up for preorder at a very favorable price (cheaper than both HLJ and HS!!), and J-List has her available as well.
