Figure Review: Alpha Omega Queen’s Blade Shizuka

When we first saw her in prototype at Wonder Festival last summer and later learned of her castoff potential, a preorder was mandated by some sort of federal law. With two of the top figure makers in the business collaborating on the project and a price that shouts rude epithets at the rising cost of oil (not to mention her demonic good looks), who could possibly resist Shizuka’s allure? Not me, which is why I am making this post:

[ERO] Figure News: Excellent Model CORE Queen’s Blade Shizuka up at Alpha Omega (updated)

With color preproduction images appearing in last month’s Hobby Japan it was only a matter of time before she appeared online in an official capacity, and today is the day: Megahouse x Alter collaboration brand Alpha Omega presents official pages for both the regular edition Excellent Model Core Queen’s Blade EX Koumanin Guntouryou Shizuka and her Hobby Japan limited alternate color counterpart Nukenin version. Designed by artist Eiwa and first appearing in the illustrated sound novel Queen’s Blade Bitoshi Gaiden, this 3D rendition of Shizuka will go on sale in April of next year at 5,775 yen retail and 1/8 scale (22 cm tall). With her up at Alpha Omega’s official site preorders should begin online shortly; a listing for the limited version is already up at Play Asia (though still display only) so it looks like they will be offering it as they have with past HJ-only figures. For a full preview of Shizuka including [ERO] shots check out Hobby Channel‘s coverage. Update: as of this evening she is now available for preorder at Amiami. (no more)
