Liquidstone is going to release the Mameshiki ( まめしき ) Kirisame Marisa ( 霧雨魔理沙 ) 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: High-powered magic
  • Residence: Forest of Magic
  • Also known as: Ordinary Magician

Marisa is the secondary main character of Touhou games 3-12, although she makes her first appearance in the second game (Story of Eastern Wonderland) as an enemy. Marisa is a human magician who lives in a cluttered house in the Forest of Magic. She is friends with Reimu and visits her often, but otherwise is solitary and spends most of her time researching magic. She is also an avid collector stuffing her house with various items, and would go “borrowing” things from others without returning them. She is selfish, sometimes violent, and has a disagreeable manner. Underneath, though, she is honest and a hard worker. This makes it strange that she is friends with Reimu, whose powers are purely from talent while she had to work very hard to get her own to the same level. Her ability is high-level destructive magic. In the games, her attacks are characterized by stars and lasers. Consistent to her “borrowing”, many of her spells are lifted from other characters, such as her signature “Master Spark” which was originally Yuka’s, or her “Nondirectional Laser” attack, which was originally Patchouli’s attack.
