Shine na Blog brings word today of two new Shining Wind figures in planning. The first is an Elwin / Elwyn (new costume ver.) PVC from Kotobukiya, 1/8 scale with a sculpt from Nakamura Hirotoshi. No news on price or release date is yet available; further information is expected in early spring. The second new figure is from Wave, and features Xecty in a sleeping pose. At 1/8 scale she’s speculated to be part of their DreamTech line, with an original pose based on an illustration from page five of the Shining Wind design works visual collection artbook. The figure’s gimmicks are a) a “soft part” torso extending down to her thighs, b) her one-piece dress is made of “very soft material”, and c) an exchangeable “sleeping face” head part. Some castoffability is implied, though the extent is not known. A color version of this figure is expected to be on display at Wonder Festival 2008 Winter on February 24th; we’ll be keeping an eye out for further information. (no more)
