Here come Misaka Mikoto, Misaka Sister, and Shirai Kuroko from Penguin Parade!!! =D They all named “Standard Edition” so most likely there will be some kind of speical edition or limited edition later on.

Some people asked about the quality about Penguin Parade. I only own one of their figure (Soso Karin! =D ) but I had read some of review of their other product. I would say that their quality is good. Well, not at good as Alter, GSC/Max Factory, and Megahouse. But I would say that they’re as good as the high quality Kotobukiya. =]

The 6,800 yen price tag for Kuroko is reasonable but I think the 8,800 yen Mikoto+Sister set is a bit overpriced. For 8,800 yen, you DON’T get Misaka + Sister, you only get Misaka + parts for Sister. That means if you want to get both Misaka and Sister, you need to pay 8,800 yen twice! =/

——Description from Manufacturer——

Tokiwadai’s most powerful Electromaster!

From the popular anime ‘Toaru Majutsu no Index II’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Mikoto Misaka, the Level 1 esper and student from Tokiwadai middle school. She has been posed in a determined looking pose to bring out her confident personality.

She also comes with replaceable parts that allow you to change the figure into one of her ‘little sister’ clones! Even a giant sniper rifle for the little sister to hold is included – it’s like getting two figures in one! Be sure to display her together with the Kuroko Shirai figure that is due to be released at same time!

Shimapan!!!! =D
