 TOYS To Heart 2 X-Rated Tamaki Kousaka Purple - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» There is a lot of Tamaki Kousaka in Japan. A lot. The headstrong heroine from To Heart 2 has been rendered into a number of toy figures which have sold well in the past few years. Griffon apparently feels that the Tamaki market hasn't reached the saturation point yet and they're releasing the To Heart 2 X Rated Kousaka Tamaki Shitagi Ver. Alice Purple Color later this year.
   Tamaki bares herself by posing like a swimsuit model and she's clad in a dark purple bikini top and bottom. Her stockings are a lighter shade of purple which run up to her thighs. If the figure could speak, we'd imagine she'd mouth, "Giselle ain't got nothin' on me." or something like that. Tamaki in purple is sculpted to 1/7 scale and measures 11cm or 4.33" tall in her seated position. Preorders are welcome to ship in late September 2011 at JPY6800 or US$98.90.
