I've seen some out there figures in the past, but I have to say this upcoming release from Griffon just may take the cake. Featuring Mei Misaki from the horror series Another, it all seems quite innocent enough until you add in the fact she comes packaged with a terrifying, corpse-like doll.
While I've been meaning to partake of the series since it aired, I haven't quite had the chance, so I'm not entirely sure of the doll's significance other than my knowledge of Mei's eye. Even so, my love for the creepy and macabre has me watching this one pretty closely. While it may not seem at a glance to have the most top notch sculpting, the whole tone and feel of the figure makes me really want to get my hands on it.
I've never liked the whole medical eye patch thing Japan has going on either, so the fact Mei's is removable is a huge plus for me as well. Of course, it goes without saying that the real star of the figure is the creepily excellent coffin and its inhabitant, simultaneously giving the doll an image of both porcelain and deathly pale skin. Sadly, while you can pre-order her now for around ¥9,800, she'll not be released until December, making your holidays wonderfully disturbing.
