BEAT is going to release the Armor Girl No.1 ( 甲冑娘一号 ) 1/5 PVC figure from the original illustration by Tsukasa Jun ( 司淳 ) . Will be released in February 2009. Around 300mm tall, 12,000 yen, castoffable.
Another figure based on the design by Tsukasa Jun! Here we have the Armor Girl No.1 by BEAT. I don’t know much about the manufactoror BEAT, only know that they’re in the figure industry for almost 10 years already. I never buy any figure from them before since they always focus on big boobs girls. =P
The pose of the original illurstration (the pic below) is kind of boring already, but BEAT bring this “boringness” to the next level. That makes her looks like those Queen’s Guard in England. To each their own, somebody might like it and somebody migth not. =] Overall this figure looks really nice. The color and the sculpting is really great and not to mention that she is castoffable! Let’s hope that they can keep this in the production model.

——Who is Tsukasa Jun ( 司淳 )?——
Even if you’re not an otaku, I’m pretty sure you have seen some of this work floating around on the internet already. Check out some of the pic that I post below. I think that should remind you something. It’s really easy to recognize his work by the eyes and the breast. =P
