Yamato is going to release the SIF EX Marin ( マリン ) Aqua Type ( アクアタイプ ) 1/7 PVC figure from the anime “Umi Monogatari” ( うみものがたり～あなたがいてくれたコト～ ). Will be released in December 2009. Around 230mm tall, 7,800 yen.
I really don’t know what Yamato is thinking. This Marin Aqua Type is going to be released in the same month as the standard version Marin which was annonced 2 months ago? It’s common to have a speical edition to be released at the same time as the standard version in the figure industry, but it’s also a common sense that the manufacturer will announced both version at the same time too so that the buyer can decide which version to go for. I feel bad for those who ordered the standard version already but want to get this Aqua Type.
Btw, I still hope that Yamato will release an Urin figure (Marin’s little sister). =P
