Kotobukiya is going to release the Yakumo Yukari ( 八雲 紫 ) 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 November 2010. Around 230mm tall, 7,500 yen (taxed in). AmiAmi Exclusive Bonus Item included.
This is the Yakumo Yukari GK that was released by Burivary System in WF2009[Summer]. Now Kotobukiya is going to release her in PVC version! =D It’s really hard to believe this is actually planned by Kotobukiya. At first I thought she is one of those Amiami project and manufactured by Kotobukiya. But in fact this is Kotobukiya’s project and they’re just using Amiami as a distributor. (for those who don’t know, in the Touhou copyright agreement, all Touhou stuff can only be sold at doujin event, doujin store, or online store)
So does that means there will be more and more Touhou figures coming from Kotobukiya and selling by Amiami in the future? =D
