Max Factory is going to release the figma Sakurahime ( 桜姫 ) original version ( 原作版 ) action figure from the classic manga/anime “Plawres Sanshiro” ( プラレス3四郎 ). Will be released in February 2009. Around 125mm tall, 2,500 yen.

You can order her here

As I mentioned in the figma Juohmaru post, the height and price might not be right, but should be pretty close tho.

I think this is the thrid female figma that showing bare shoulder. The first one was figma Hatsune Miku, the second one was figma Saber Lily. I don’t really like their shoulder design, it doesn’t look good at all. The shoulder is always the weak point of figma, therefore you don’t see much figma with bare shoulder showing. On the other hand, the shoulder of Fraulein is pretty nice compared to figma IMO.

Anybody read the manga or watched the anime of Plawres Sanshiro before? I did watch the anime when I was a little kid (like 25 yrs ago?). I couldn’t remember anything about the story actually. But I remembered that Juohmaru was really cool and I really wanted his toy! But my family was poor when I was a kid, there was no way my parents would buy me that.

Too bad this figma Sakurahime and the figma Juohmaru is the original version (the manga version). I want the anime version. Max Factory give us the anime version please!! (@@.

——Description from Manufacturer——

The only one who can complete the tag team is her! figma Sakura Hime!

Plawres Sanshiro is a manga that began in the 80’s which quickly received an anime adaption. Even now it still holds popularity with its many fans, and along with figma Juohmaru comes a figma to partner with him, Sakura Hime!

The figma project was originally created as a joint effort between Masaki Asai and Max Factory using these figures as concept models – and now that we have reached the first year anniversary of figma, what better a time could there be to release the two figures that started the figma legend?

  • The original concept model behind the creation of the figma series of figures.
  • Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes.
  • Her nimble, flexible body has been faithfully recreated, allowing many poses that show her true charm.
  • A flexible plastic was used between the legs, making sure that proportions were kept, without compromising the posability.
  • Three faces are included, including an expressionless face, and various hand parts are also included allowing for a virtually unlimited number of poses.
  • Comes with a poseable figma stand that makes it possible to recreate various scenes.
