R-line Griffon Enterprises is going to release the Inferno Temptress Airi ( 冥土へ誘うものアイリ ) DX Ver. non-scale PVC figure from the anime/ visual book “Queen’s Blade” ( クイーンズブレイド ). Will be released in June 2009. Around 170mm tall, 5,900 yen. Castoffable.

This post contains adult material, you need to be 18 or over to view it.

Remembered the “dead fish Airi Ultimate limited reservation edition“? This DX Ver. is just the mass production version of the dead fish version. The only differences are the her hair of DX version is not transparent, will not come with the special guidebook and a treasure book, and it’s more expensive!!! Sounds like this DX is a really ripoff to me. =P

I found that Griffon has a really clever marketing team. Other than those smart release date and those another color version thing, they also know the market pretty well. They changed the “1/10 scale” to “non-scale”. Not much people are gone spend almost 6,000 yen for a 1/10 scale PVC figure. But if it’s just “non-scale”, most people will fall into it. Aren’t they clever?
