What happens when two of the bishoujo sculpting masters of Japan decide to tackle the same subject with their own unique interpretations? We found out yesterday at WHF Ariake 18, where I was treated to my first look at the completed renditions of two new Gurren Lagann Yoko “space look” resin kits by two veteran hands of the craft. See below for gallery reviews of both:

I’m not going to do something as silly as claim that one of these is better than the other; when awesome sculptors tackle awesome material it’s clear that everybody wins. I just hope we’ll be able to see one or both in PVC at some point in the not-so-distant future.
