Griffon - 1/7 Scale
Griffon is on a role with re-releases lately, following up the previous kitty Kanu with another Choun figure. I've never quite been able to tell why, out of all the Ikkitousen girls, Choun seems to be the only one even remotely approaching the popularity of Ryomou and Kanu. While she's never been my favorite, I still can't deny the appeal of this pretty badass figure.
With sword poised to be drawn, Choun looks ready to lash out at any foe. I've always loved the speed of iaido, so I'm a big fan of the similar battle-prepared pose. She's also sporting some of the most wicked looking hair I've seen on a figure in some time. I'd probably like to pick her up for that alone, to be honest.
To complete the package, she's also got multiple expressions, and I particularly like the one with her eyes closed, as if readying herself with surprising calmness given the clear tension in the design. You'll be able to pick her up this coming March for around ¥9,500.
