Kotobukiya is going to release the Shirai Kuroko ( 白井黒子 ) A Certain Maid Outfit Teleport ( とあるメイド姿の空間移動（テレポート） ) 1/6 PVC figure from the manga/anime “A Certain Scientific Railgun” ( とある科学の超電磁砲 ), a side story of “A Certain Magical Index” ( とある魔術の禁書目録 ). Will be released in July 2011. Around 250mm tall, 7,600 yen.
Here come Kuroko in the maid outfit!! Misaka Mikoto should be announced in a few week. And she should be released a month after Kuroko. Too bad this Kuroko is 1/6 scale, one size too big for my liking. I would be so happy to get both Kuroko and Misaka if they’re in 1/8 scale. ='(

From the spinoff series of A Certain Magical Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun, comes the ultra-powerful member of Judgment herself – Kuroko Shirai, and in a cute maid outfit! Featuring a chic black and white color scheme and with a strong focus both on Kuroko’s chest and the “Zettai Ryoiki” (absolute area) between her knee-high stockings and skirt this figure is a perfect realization of the popular Nyan-Type illustration it is based on! Kuroko’s distinctive twin-tail hairstyle and cute mouth are also perfectly reproduced.
Now you can enjoy that illustration from whatever angle you like, and in 1/6 scale you won’t miss any aspects of Kuroko! Kuroko’s base will even join together with the Mikoto Misaka figure which is also scheduled for release in the summer of 2011 so you can recreate the complete illustration in your own collection!
