quesQ is going to release the Hakurei Reimu ( 博麗霊夢 ) 1/6 PVC bust statue from the doujin danmaku shooting game series “Touhou Project” ( 東方プロジェクト ) by the circle Team Shanghai Alice ( 上海アリス幻樂団 ). Will be released in October 2009. Around 90mm tall, 3,200 yen. Will be only available at some online stores and doujin stores.
There are quite a lot of Hakurei Reimu figure news recently, I guess I don’t need to say anything about her. Well, for those who don’t know her, she is the main heroine in Touhou and known as the “Armpit Shrine Maiden” by Touhou fan.
There are the Touhou statues from the GK circle “quesQ” ( キューズQ )
that we always saw in the events recently. Wow, they looks really really nice to me, and the price is very reasonable. But since it’s quesQ first time to turn their GK into PVC figure and they didn’t mention which manufacturer produce these figures, I’m really worry about the quality. Well, at least the paint job will not be as nice as you see in the prototype photos below. But for Touhou fans and the attractive price tag, they’re must have. They will be only available at some online stores like Amiami and doujin stores like Toranoana ( 虎の穴 ).
——Description from Wiki——
Reimu Hakurei (博麗 霊夢)
Reimu is the main character of Touhou games 1-12. She is the shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, a remote building far in the east where the boundaries of Gensōkyō and the human world overlap. Reimu is very easygoing—some would say lazy—and hates to train. As such, even though she’s naturally talented, her offensive and magical abilities are only average. However, she has a strong sense of duty, and if it’s for the sake of Gensokyo she can overcome almost any obstacle through sheer perseverance. Her main abilities are flying in the sky, good intuition, and getting along with everyone; even those who were once her enemies. In the games, she is characterized by her homing amulets and yin-yang orbs. In addition to being in all of the Touhou games (save Touhou 9.5), she is featured in Graffiti Kingdom as “Flying Maiden”.
