The official site of otaku goods retailer and producer Toranoana was updated this evening to announce the creation of a new figure brand dubbed TC2F (“Toranoana & Creators Collaboration Figure”). The first item in the brand’s lineup will be a collaboration with T2 ART WORKS (Taka Tony): the “bikini maid girl” figure we first reported on at the beginning of this month. The official TC2F page reports that the figure is a collaboration between Tony and sculptor Maeda Tomoki of Works Sapporo, is 1/8 scale, does not appear castoffable (other than two pairs of glasses as option parts), and is scheduled to retail in late May at the astoundingly low price of 4,515 yen (with telephone card) or 3,990 yen (figure alone).

The bad news is that the TC2F series is apparently “100% Toranoana Store Limited”, meaning a trip to the proxy service is in order for fans outside Japan. At that price I think many may bite the bullet and pay the extra finder’s fee…

For those contemplating a proxy purchase the kit is currently available for preorder at Toranoana’s online shop in telephone card and standard varieties.
