Kotobukiya took notice of the fetching participants of DOAX2 and went on to create the Venus on the Beach series of figures which have featured Ayane, Lei-Fang, and Tina in assorted poses and situations on the beach and in the surf. When June 2008 rolls around, Kotobukiya will release Venus on the Beach: Hitomi which features the fraulein fatale atop a miniature inflatable orca. Hitomi may be garbed in a black bikini or a blue top which are interchangeable. The display stand atop which Hitomi is positioned allows for some slight rotational movement of the figure. Pricing is set at JPY9240 for the Japanese version of the figure but it'll probably be localized for the North American market at a more reasonable price.
Kotobukiya joins in on the love with a newly announced set of One Coin Figures which are based on the heroes and villains of the Indiana movies. In the photo to the left, we see the likenesses of Indiana Jones, Henry Jones Sr, Marion Ravenwood, and Mola Ram in full regalia. Three secret figures are also randomly dispersed inside each factory sealed box for unveiling later. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2008.
» An Alphonse Elric figure which measures 22cm or 8.66" tall and is decked out in a red cloak with a black uniform underneath.
» Colonel Roy Mustang aka The Flame Alchemist measures 30cm or 11.81" tall and his fist may be fitted with artificial flames.
The drawstring bag is tiny but it'll carry candy, coins, or other small items whilst the pencil case is made of metal and opens up to hold pens, erasers, and other school supplies. Most of our stock is in new condition but please note that there may be crinkly cardboard on some of the boxes.
