If they’re not 1/6 but 1/8 scale, I will get them for sure. 1/6 scale is just too big for my small room. Come to think of it, this 1/6 Misaka really aren’t look like 1/6. I think she lacks of the detail that 1/6 scale figure should have. If you look at her maid outfit and her hair, compared to the Kuroko, the detail just isn’t there. The detail makes her looks like some kind of 1/8 or even 1/10 figure. =/
Oh well, who really cares? Since she is so cheap for a 1/6 scale figure, people will not mind and they will get her anyway. =P

Sculpted by zenko (Iousen)
From the ultra-popular To Aru spinoff series, A Certain Scientific Railgun comes the third strongest Level 5 super-powered student herself, Mikoto Misaka! And this time she is dressed in an ultra-cute maid outfit!
Mikoto is based on an illustration from Nyan-Type Magazine – Mikoto is feeling a bit shy in the maid outfit that Kuroko has schemed to get on her, and her cute facial expression and pose perfectly convey that emotion. Her maid outfit has a lovely plunging neckline and short skirt so you can appreciate the “zettai ryoiki” between her stockings and skirt!
A perfect realization of the illustration, this figure is reproduced in 1/6 scale to really make an impression in your collection!
