Alter is going to release the Houmei ( ホウメイ ) 1/8 PVC figure form the “Shining” game series “Shining Wind” published by SEGA. Will be released in June 2011. Around 200mm tall (included the base and clothes), 11,800 yen.

You can order her here

Thank you Alter for setting her price so high. Now I don’t even need to think about getting her. I know that she is gonna be expensive when Alter showed the non-painted prototype in the event, but I didn’t expect that she is this expensive. I was hoping that she will be like 9,800 yen and I could still afford it. But with the 11,800 yen tag now, I have to give up.

Good-bye Houmei, I like you so much and I’ll nominate you in the Best Figure Award next year (if I get invited as a nominator again)! (@@.

——Description from Manufacturer——

Sculpted by Futatsu Shito

From the “RPG that Touches Hearts”, Shining Wind, comes an amazing new figure of the Fairy of Ryuusenkyou, Houmei! This figure has been expertly crafted to allow Houmei to appear as though she is lightly floating on the air, supported only by her billowing clothes and the stream of water beneath her (which serves as her base). It is a dynamic but refined sculpt that is sure to bring out the best elements of Houmei!

Houmei’s clothing has been perfectly colored, and her gently smiling expression perfectly balances her childlike appearance along with her air of dignity and nobility.
