Moeyo! Akibajin Blog brings the news today that figure maker Daiki Kougyou is beginning a new line of fixed-pose completed PVC models they’re calling Real Arrange, based on the theme of more photo-realistic takes on 2D characters. The first entry in the lineup is a figure we’ve had our eye on since it debuted at WHF Ariake 17 last winter, sculptor D-Kura’s (diskvision) Kanu Unchou.

The kit generated some criticism back it was initially posted, and Moeyo’s review of the prototype is likely only to fan the flames (it looks like they crossed her face with a really heavily made-up Johnny Depp), but I for one am excited about the prospect of seeing yet another hot (to my eyes) Kanu from a significant newcomer to the PVC scene. She’s scheduled for release in October at 1/6 scale (21 cm from head to toe, 25 cm to her fingertips), and will retail at 13,440 yen. Images of the garage kit version can be found below:

The extent to which she’ll be castoffable has not yet been directly revealed, but this being Daiki we can trust that a full upper castoff is the most likely outcome (in addition to various damaged clothing configurations).

Update: preorders are now up for her at Amiami:



That face has some serious issues… hopefully they’ll fix things in a subsequent revision.
