Good Smile Company is going to release the Putin ( プーチン ) soft vinyl figure from the web anime “Usavich” ( ウサビッチ ). Will be released in August 2009. Around 180mm tall, 2,857 yen.
Wahaha! They’re the rabbits from Usavich!!! I love this web anime so much. The story is really funny and I like their 3DCG a lot. Different from the other 3D animation companies, they mainly focus on the texture rather then the 3D modeling.
The figure is nicely done. I really love the paint job. It’s just like how they look in the anime. Let’s hope the the final product will look as good. The price is a bit high IMO. 2,857 yen is very pricy for a simple figure like that, not to mention the material is soft vinyl not PVC. It’s more like a prize figure to me.
Putin is a really kind rabbit and he is my favorite character in this show. Poor Putin, he was an honest laborer who once missed a day of work due to hangover and was sentenced to 3 years in jail. He lives in the same cell as Kirenenko.
——Description from Manufacturer——
The honest, hard-working laborer.
Usavich is a story that follows the carefree life of rabbits that are imprisoned in a Russian prison. When the first season aired in the Autumn of 2006, it quickly generated many fans with its unique and interesting atmosphere. The third season is currently airing on MTV, and it is still just as well acclaimed as when it originally aired.
This is a soft vinyl figure of Putin, the cheerful and kind protagonist of the show. ‘Komanech’, the transvestite chick with a powerful personality, is also included, allowing you to enjoy the carefree Putin along with Komonech to your heart’s content.
***Kirenenko sold seperately***
