Alter is going to release the Nooumi Kudryavka ( 能美クドリャフカ ) 1/8 PVC figure from the visual novel “Little Busters!” published by Key. Will be released in November 2009 January 2010. Around 230mm tall, 6,800 yen.
This Nooumi is so kawaii! I’m buying her for sure!!! This pose is taken from one of the CGs in the Little Busters! visual novel. Alter did a really good job on it. Most figure manufacturers will avoid this kind of one-leg-stand pose, espeically this kind of leaning forward/backward pose due to the balance and “soft-leg” issue (aka MJ). The “soft-leg” was still a big problem around 2-3 years ago. This issue is solved now by insert a ABS plasic in the middle of the leg(s) but most figure manufacturers will still avoid this kind of pose just in case.

What happened to Little Busters! lately? Are they going to have anime treatment or what? How come so many Little Busters figures coming all of sudden? Kotobukiya just announced the re-release of three Little Busters figures, and Aoshima is going to release the two Little Busters! action figures this month, and then today Taki corporation announced the Saigusa Haruka and Alter announced this Nooumi Kudryavka. What happen?? Let’s hope that it’s going to be a good news. =D
