Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 5 – Rizfis (Rize) Luttiva Mente

The first round of the explosively popular Shuraki multimedia figure series concludes with the appearance of Rize, Italian Shuraki and member of the mysterious White Raven organization. Armed with a massive halberd and clad in a diaphanous blue gown, her design is surely a match for any of her predecessors – but how does she compare in figure form? Read on for the final installment in our Shuraki review series (until the second batch is announced):

Figure News: Shuraki vol. 5 Rize preorder “unsealed” tonight

The fifth and final volume of the Shuraki multimedia figure series goes up for preorder tonight (December 17th) at midnight! Rizefis Rutetiiva Mente (aka. Rize) was designed by Yano Takumi, voiced by Shintani Ryouko, and sculpted by Kaiya Hajime of circle Acetone.

Figure News: Shuraki vol. 5 Rize preorder date set, Meifeng second round preorders begin

A couple bits of Shuraki news today: first is the word that Shuraki vol. 5 Rize is scheduled to be “unsealed” on December 18th, according to the Shuraki official site. She marks the end of the first set of five multimedia figure installments, and though explosive sales are expected as usual, fan and retailer fatigue along with the expectation of an eventual reissue mean that the rush to buy will probably be less pronounced than for past offerings. We’ll be keeping an eye on the launch when it comes around next week. In other news, today Goodsmile officially acknowledged what we’ve known since last month: Shuraki vol. 2 Meifeng is being reissued next April. In response to this several online stores have been dumping remaining stock of the kit that they’d normally let trickle out (notably Amazon and Amiami), a sign that preorders are just around the corner; Moe Soul takes the lead with preorders officially beginning at six o’clock this evening.

Figure News: Shuraki roundup – high res Needa, Meifeng reissue, Rize release date

Online shop Infinity Wonderland posted their Needa preorder last night, and along with it a gallery of high resolution images of the kit (reproduced below). She’s looking great! Of greater import in the listing however is the news that Shuraki vol. 2 Meifeng is scheduled for an April 2008 reissue, and Shuraki vol. 5 Rize is due out in April as well. This should put fears to rest of those unable to get Meifeng when she was first released earlier this month. Images below:
