We first saw her announced back at the Shizuoka Hobby Show, and today Kotobukiya updated with color images of their Kizaki Emi PVC figure from manga and upcoming TV anime Kurogane no Linebarrels. She’s scheduled for release in October at an undisclosed retail price (previously reported at 6,090 yen), and 1/8 scale (21 cm tall). The sculptor is currently uncredited. Figure images below:
I’m pleasantly surprised by how this figure is developing away from the uninspired and fugly Hirai Hisashi designs (cloned once again for his Nth mecha show… I swear the guy is a zombie. Or Lernean hydra). Whoever the sculptor is gets mad props at present, I hope the face isn’t “improved” in future revisions of the figure. We’ll be watching.
