R-line Griffon Enterprises is going to release Steel Princess Ymir ( 鋼鉄姫ユーミル ) 1/7 PVC figure from the anime/ visual book “Queen’s Blade”. Will be released in July 2009, around 195mm tall, 7,600 yen. Castoffable.
Isn’t this the Treasure-Festa 2009 in Ariake 1 event limited Ymir? LOL, it’s really normal for Griffon. They always release their figures as event limited GK, and then release them as PVC after the event right away. It happens every time so I’m not surprised.
Yes, this is the same Steel Princess Ymir that I posted 2 days ago. But that was from Megahouse (you can read more about the Megahouse one here), and this one is from Griffon. I think the sculpture work and the paint job is nicer than the Megahouse one. The color is a lot closer to the original illustration. But it’s not so fair to compare with the Megahouse one since the Megahouse one was 2 years old already.
Both the Megahouse Ymir and this Griffon Ymir are going to be released in July. Since I have the Megahouse one already, I would buy the Griffon if I have enough fund in July. But for those who doesn’t have the Megahouse one, which one are you gonna buy? =]
Btw, the cast-off feature is kinda sux on this one. Seems like only the top can be cast-off. If it is true, then the Megahouse one is so much better.
