Kotobukiya’s Kureha

27 Nov


Looks familiar?

That’s the prototype version of Kureha from Shining Wind, by Kotobukiya. Scheduled to be released in April 2008, this figure sprouts a more energetic feel as Kotobukiya decided to make her dance cha-cha.

Ok, kidding. I guess overall, she’s supposed to portray that “punch feel” and go “yeah”. Slightly smaller than the Max Factory version, I personally feel a lot more could go into the paint job. However, loved that wooden base!

    I like the dynamic pose of Koto Kureha but prefer the face and expression of Max Factory version. for those who miss the max fac version this is a good alternative :)

    Yes, the facial expression of Max Factory version is nicer. This seems alright except that it’s glossy and they made her use her arms to push-up her boobs.
