Kotobukiya is going to release the Hachikuji Mayoi ( 八九寺真宵 ) 1/8 PVC figure figure from the light novel/anime “Bakemonogatari” ( 化物語 ). Will be released in November 2010. Around 180mm tall, 6,800 yen.
I love you Kotobukiya! This Hachikuji Mayoi is so cute and so affortable! I like Mayoi a lot. Beside the one from MOVIC, there aren’t any full scale Mayoi PVC figure yet. And I don’t like the MOIVC one so this one is so much win!
DVD cover (2P color)
But I as most of you know, I don’t like 2P color. This Mayoi is using the 2P, DVD cover, color and I really want the usual 1P color. Should I wait and hope for Kotobukiya release the original color or should I just go for this one? =/
Btw, the snail shadow on the base is removable.

The second release from the mega-hit anime Bakemonogatari!
The grade-school student known not only for her twin tails but also for her gigantic backpack, Maoyoi Hachikuji is here!
Captured in a very energetic pose, this is the Mayoi you remember from the series! Every detail of Mayoi’s character design, from her distinctive hair style to her uniform have been expertly recreated. And of course her hairband, ribbon, skit and other accessories (particularly her backpack) have all been lovingly recreated.
