KyotoAnimation is going to release the Akiyama Mio ( 秋山 澪 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the manga/anime “K-ON!” ( けいおん！ ). Will be released in July 2010. Around 216mm tall, 8,000 yen (taxed in). Pre-order will be taken at 12:00pm on February 6, 2010 (Japan local time). Kyoani Shop exclusive.
Updated with more images!
KyotoAnimation added a front page (the image below) for their Mio figure! Seems like they’re taking this Mio figure seriously. There aren’t any images on their website yet except those non-painted figure images that we had seen before. There is still around 3hrs more to go and we will see how this Mio looks like.
Stay tuned! I’ll update this post once I have more info and images for this Mio figure! =D
Update: Here comes the Mio!!! The images is a bit small from the Kyoani Shop so please bear with it. Overall she looks really good. Her face looks better than the non-painted version. I’m just a little bit disappointed by her dress. I thougth they’re going to use semi-transparent PVC for those layers.
There is still no information about which manufacturer is going to manufacture her. For the 8,000 yen price tag, let’s hope that it’s not something cheap like Toy’s works to manufacture her.
You can order her here in Kyoani Shop.
