Daiki Kougyou is going to release the Ryomou Shimei ( 呂蒙子明 ) 1/4 PVC figure from the manga/anime “Ikkitousen” ( 一騎当千). Will be released in September 2010. Around 410mm tall, 21,900 yen. Castoffable.

GK version (left), PVC version (right)
The original GK version of this Ryomou Shimei was released in October 2009 in Treasure-Festa in Ariake 2. Around 7 months later, Daiki decided to bring us the PVC version of this 1/4 scale finally. Maybe people didn’t really like the face of the GK version, so Daiki changed her face a bit (mainly the eyes) and turn Ryomou from a realistic style girl to an anime style girl.
May be it is good for those who like the anime style, but personally I think it’s a bad thing to change the original design like this. The sculptor Toshiro is really well known for his realistic style (please check out the Saber and the girl from Naked Star). What Daiki did is really not respecting him even if he is ok with it. =/

Sculpted by Toshiro (Cobra-Kai)
The ultra popular (and ultra-large) garage kit from Cobra-Kai has finally made the leap to PVC! Featuring a cast-off enabled apron, skit and underwear along with openable handcuffs this is an amazing addition to any Ikki Tousen collection!
