Kotobukiya's Elmina gets a shiny new preview

Tony face is so Tony face

Tony Taka is well known for designing a gaggle of very similar-looking women for the Shining series. Here's Kotobukiya's take on one of his designs: Elmina Rhoderia from Shining Blade. She's glad to meet you.

The figure is pretty much as simple as it gets, with just a vaguely European-looking outfit and a color scheme that mixes light greens, red accents, and blonde hair. I never feel like Kotobukiya gets the Tony face quite right, but this is a pretty good looking figure regardless. I'm sure Elmina isn't poorly made, but she is fairly bland.

If you're a die-hard Shining series fan, you can look at the rest of the gallery at Akiba Hobby. If you like what you see, hit up the pre-order post to reserve one.
