Liquidstone is going to release the Mameshiki ( まめしき ) Hakurei Reimu ( 博麗霊夢 ) action figure 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 February 2010. Around 100mm tall, 3,790 yen. Will only be sold at Amiami and some other stores.

Liquidstone said that they’re going to release their action figure in PVC version for quit awhile, and finally they’re here! First we have Hakurei Reimu and Kirisame Marisa, and I believe the other characters will come out soon. The images below are the original figures which is color resin cast GK so don’t expect that the PVC version will look as good as the GK.

From the prototype PVC version Reimu that we saw in Treasure-Festa 2009 in Ariake 2, the PVC version is a simplified version of the GK. Her eyes are intergrated with her face. Those red and white lines on her dress and sleeves are gone, I guess they will just print those lines on and call it a day. Oh, and seems like her dress and the big ribbon on her head will comes in 1 big piece instead.

FYI, the original GK version were very rare (limited production and event exclusive) and they’re really really $$$. Well, actually the original price isn’t too bad (8,000 yen), but since they’re really rare so they were selling for over 14,000 yen on ebay/Yahoo. So for those who couldn’t afford the GK, it’s your chance to get the PVC version now. But they will only be available at Amiami and some other stores.

——Description from Wikipedia——

  • Species: Human
  • Ability: Mainly able to fly in the sky
  • Residence: Hakurei Shrine
  • Also known as: Shrine Maiden of Paradise

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 Gensokyo 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”.
