Max Factory is going to release the Seena ( シーナ ) 1/7 PVC figure form the “Shining” game series “Shining Wind” published by SEGA. Will be released in Feburary 2009. Around 230mm tall, 7,800 yen.
The description from GSC says “she has been sculpted just like the illustration”, but you know what? I’m not blind, I really don’t agree it. For those who know TONY’s art, you know this figure is not TONY at all. Her pose and body is nice, but her face is not. This time Max Factory does a pretty bad job on her, kinda disappointing. The one from President Japan looks way much better. =/
——Description from GSC——
The crimson artist who leads the Luminous Knights.
The latest addition to the Shining Project! Following the release of Kureha from the game “Shining Wind”, comes the main character’s childhood friend, who accompanied him though his adventures: The Chevalier of the Red Rose, Seena!
Once again the priority when sculpting the figure was sticking to Tony’s original illustration as faithfully as possible, hence she has been sculpted just like the illustration, sticking her hips out to the side as she gazes ahead with an innocent smile – with her emphatic body line acting as a wonderful contrast, creating an incredibly attractive figure.
