Alter is going to release the Saten Ruiko ( 佐天涙子 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the light novel/anime “A Certain Scientific Railgun” ( とある科学の超電磁砲 ). Will be released in December 2010 January 2011. Around 210mm tall, 6,800 yen.
I was so looking forward to this Saten Ruiko figure when I saw the non-painted one in the magazine scan last week. I was really excited but now I’m a bit disppointed. She doesn’t look as good as I thought when she is painted. Somehow I think she is kind of plain. Now let’s see if Alter will release Uiharu or not. If they do, then maybe I’ll get both Saten and Uiharu as a set later. =P
