President Japan “Shining” series trio preorders open

Three of the Shining series figures from President Japan (Eye Ball/Eye Scream) we’ve had our eye on for the past few months went up for preorder simultaneously today, with listings appearing at Kotobukiya’s online shop. First up is Seena Kanon from Shining Wind [PA], who’s set for release in July at 1/8 scale (28 cm tall) and 8,190 yen retail. Next is Houmei, also from Shining Wind, set for release at 1/8 scale (14.5 cm tall) and 8,190 yen retail; her listing is not accompanied by a release date, but July seems like a logical guess. Finally we have Maple from Shining Tears [PA], presented at a stunning 1/1 scale, 38.2 cm tall and due out in July at 18,900 yen. Sculptor information for all three figures is currently unavailable. We’ll update this post with additional details and images as they come online; current images below. Update: full image galleries now online:

Shining Wind Houmei color sample

The official Shining franchise figure blog Shine na Blog posted photos yesterday of a finished color prototype of President Japan (Eye Scream)’s upcoming Houmei figure from Shining Wind. These are the first pictures we’ve seen of the figure in color, and she’s looking really quite nice indeed! We don’t currently have any official information on pricing or a release timeframe, but apparently more information will be available when she goes on display at the Tokyo International Anime Fair at the end of the month.
