My wallet is safe this time. I’m not a fan for realistic anime character. It’s just not my cup of tea. And no, the sculptor is NOT the one one who made the realistic version of Ryomou Shimei. That guy is Diskvision ( D蔵 ), and this guy who made this Yoko is Shunshi Hagii ( 萩井 俊士 ).

——Description from Manufacturer——

The sniper of Team Gurren. A more realistic take on Yoko!

The beautiful sniper Yoko from the ever popular TV series and movie, ‘Gurren Lagaan’ is back again as a figure from Max Factory.

As a slightly different image to the original work, Yoko has been sculpted in a more realistic manner, creating a new exquisite presence. From the details on her tight hot-pants and knee-socks to the smallest of details on her fingertips and facial expression – Yoko has been brought to life as a zealous 1/6 scale PVC figure. A visor is also included and can be attached to create a more stylish image.

There are many Yoko figures around, but this is one with a very distinct charm that collectors are bound to fall in love with.
