  • Remember when Dengeki announced two figures of Miyuki Shiba from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei? Don’t worry, I didn’t either until I saw this post. But wow, here she is! Sculpted!

Wow, what amazing clothing details. Good job. I must admit that her base is awesome, but other than this it’s pretty much the most generic anime figure ever. You picture PVC, you picture this dull figure. But, um, she’s 1/7 instead of 1/8, so she has that going for her. [via Dengeki]

For real, ask Stephen. So, let’s just dive right in. Wow, such figures! So PVC! Wowwwww! Maybe I’ll just do every post in Shibe…
