Witchblade: Tsuzuki Shiori 1/7 Scale Figure - Preorder

American comic book heroines don't generally find big audiences in Japan but Witchblade made the transition to the world of Japanese animation last year. Discarding the premise as well as the characters of the original storyline entirely, a new Witchblade universe was created for the Japanese market.

Amaha Masane is the Witchblade carrier in the Japanese animation series and she interacts with a number of characters including a cloneblade named Soho Reina and her full-bosomed secretary Tsuzuki Shiori. Despite looking somewhat innocuous, Tsuzuki is a bloodthirsty killing machine who proves to be a worthy adversary to Amaha. Orchid Seed recognizes Tsuzuki with a 1/7 scale PVC figure which measures 23cm (9.06") tall and is decked out in a flimsy 2-piece bikini. Two of Tsuzuki's physical attributes are highly exaggerated but we're guessing the largesse was intentional. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late March 2008.
