Kotobukiya is going to release the Elmina Rhoderia ( エルミナ・ローデリア ) 1/8 PVC figure form the “Shining” game series “Shining Blade” ( シャイニング・ブレイド ) published by SEGA. Will be released in May 2013. Around 195mm tall, 6,800 yen.
Wow, here comes a Shining Blade version of Elmina figure!! We all know that there are tons of recycled characters in Shining Blade. Elmina is one of them. She was recycled from Shining Wind and Kotobukiya did release a figure of her for Shining Wind back in 2009. But guess what? This Shining Blade Elmina figure is actually a modification version of the old one. =/
As you can see, the main difference of the old and new version are the face, arms, cape, and the staff. She has more stuff from the old version then this *new one but the old one is 600 yen cheaper. Yes, you’re right! We pay MORE for LESS! Isn’t it cool? XD
