Let's see a show of hands! How many of you like Japanese things? How many of you like Kimono's? Okay. How about anime? If you answered yes to those questions you should take a look at a new statue by A+ of Yune hailing Ikoku Meiro no Croisee (Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth).
Kimono lovers rejoice! Yune is dressed in her favorite kimono from the series and A+ did a nice job with it's sculpt and colors. There is something extremely cute about seeing a young Japanese girl in a kimono. I'm not trying to be creepy; that's just the way it is. Go to a Japanese cultural convention and watch kids in kimonos run around. It's cute!
There are a couple of things that make this statue of Yune different than what one might expect. First, it's made using a wide range of materials. Her base is made of wood and there seems to be some poly-resin involved in her figure as well as PVC. Also, because Yune is so young, and short, it is not too surprising that this figure is made to an odd scale. She will be made to 1/4.5 scale, standing at 26 centimeters tall.
Her suggested retail price ¥13,900 and should ship out late December of this year. Those who have a busy December may be annoyed with the short notice on her shipping, however those who order Yune should be excited that she will come sooner rather than later.
