Good Smile Company is going to release the Yamato Kai ( 大和改 ) Light Armament Ver. ( 軽兵装Ver. ) 1/8 PVC figure from the popular web game “Kantai Collection” ( 艦隊これくしょん ) developed by Kadokawa Games. Will be released in April 2015. Around 180mm tall, 10,926 yen.
Here comes the poor man’s version of the Yamato Kai! GSC strip off the full Armament from her trying to make her more affordable. But man, 10,926 yen is still a lot of $$$ to the poor man like me. I guess I need a poorer man’s version. ='(
I wish they would make a poor man’s version of their Shimakaze too.
