FREEing is going to release the Izumi Konata ( 泉こなた ) Gym Uniform ver. ( 体操服ver. ) 1/4 PVC figure from the manga/anime “Lucky Star” ( らき☆すた ). Will be released in June 2009. Around 300mm tall, 11,800 yen.
The design of Lucky Star characters are really simple, I really don’t see the point to have a 1/4 size for them. It’s not like they have a lot of detail or what, 1/8 is more than enough. I think FREEing make this large scale just try to rip us off. Maybe it’s just misprint, but isn’t 300mm is kinda short? 300mm for 1/4 scale means Konata is only 120cm (3’11”) in real size?
Anyway, like I said before, I really don’t like the real fabric clothes in the PVC figure. This make them looks like a Babie doll. But the good is you can buy them some doll clothes and dress them up.
If you’re going to buy this figure, then you better save up for the other 3 Lucky Star girls too. FREEing is going to release one in each season. The next one will be Hiiragi Kagami, then Hiiragi Tsukasa, and the last one will be Takara Miyuki.
——Description from Manufacturer——
The otaku school girl that excels in sports.
FREEing is making a set of 1/4 scale characters from the popular series “Lucky Star”, all in their gym uniforms! The first to be released is the anime and game loving high school girl, Konata Izumi!
Sculpted as if she had just jumped out of the anime, the figure is modeled off the exact position that Konata was seen as in the anime. Her gym uniform and short pants are all made of real fabrics for a much more realistic figure design! Her long hair that reaches down to her hips has been recreated in all its voluminous glory.
The next characters up for release are Kagami, Tsukasa and Miyuki, so start making space!
