Griffon Enterprises is going to release the Sinner against Eternity and Temporality ( 永遠と須臾の罪人 ) Houraisan Kaguya ( 蓬莱山輝夜 ) 1/8 PVC 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 April May 2010. Around 165mm tall, 6,800 yen.
Poor Kaguya, this figure looks like she got punched in the face. I really don’t know why Griffon changed the sculptor from my farovite i-con to Akiyamaakio ( あきやまあきお ) for this Touhou series. It’s not like Akiyamaakio is bad, but I really don’t like the nose that he(she?) sculpted. Beside her face, but I wonder why she is so short. 165mm in 1/8 scale is really tiny. FIY, the Griffon Patchouli and Remilia are around 160mm. Kaguya should be a lot taller than those two. =(

Btw, those five items that come with her were her Five Impossible Requests items. The first request was to bring her the stone begging bowl of the Buddha from India. The second was to retrieve a jewelled branch from the island of Mount Hourai. The third was to seek the legendary robe of the fire-rat of China. The fourth was to retrieve a colored jewel from a dragon’s neck. The final task was to find the legendary Cowry treasure of the swallows.
