Megahouse is going to the Excellent Model Core Wasteland Picaroon Risty ( 荒野の義賊リスティ ) 1/8 PVC figure from the visual book/anime “Queen’s Blade”. Will be released in November 2009. Around 210mm tall, 6,800 yen. Castoffable.
For the Queen’s Blade figures, usually Megahouse will use the original illustration of that character from the QB book to make the figure. But this time for some reason Megahouse took a different route. Instead of using the original illustration by Eiwa, they found Tsukasa Jun ( “司淳”, aka Tsukasa Bullet “司弾”) to redraw Risty and make the figure from it (You can read more about Tsukasa Jun here) and call it Queen’s Blade EX.
As some of you might know that Tsukasa Jun is a very talented character designer, he made this Risty looks at least 200% nicer than the original one by Eiwa. I’m pretty sure this Risty figure will sale like crazy since both Risty fans and Tsukasa Jun fans will try their best to get their hands on her. =]
