Yamato has a real love of odd and original designs: they’ve done everything from giant realistic robot girls to va-va-voom military babes. Their most recent creation is a sci-fi inspired lass designed by Maya Miyazaki, and she really does have some charm. I really like the base and color scheme as well as her wacky hair accessories. Her skimpy clothing is pretty par for the course for Yamato, and it looks a little bit like the top will be cast-off. Her face is the one part I am not sold on: from some angles it looks fantastic and unique, but from others she looks possessed.
Like most of their figures she’s on the pricey side at ¥11,655 and is an August release–this seems a bit absurd though, since Yamato already has figures lined up through October. But hey, they are the king of delays, so I doubt she’ll actually come out then!
